How to play Super Mario World Co-Op rom on SNES Classic
Peace everyone. I have a rom for the fan-created Super Mario World co-op version. The game is really cool and the rom works just fine on the ZSNESW emulator on my computer.
However it does not work on the SNES Classic. I tried running it in clover and the Snes2010 emulator. It just glitches and the screen goes black.

The SNES isn't that good of a console, and I'm tired of people pretending it was.
Say what you want about me, but I have my reasons. The Super Nintendo isn't a good console, and while it had many good games, the Genesis had more, and there were a LOT of mediocre to downright bad SNES games, along with a couple other reasons, like Nintendo's almost monopolistic control on the industry, and how it REALLY
stacks up against the Sega Genesis. If you don't wanna read the entire thing, just know that I think
this system is the most OVERRATED THING EVER MADE.
- While the SNES is known for its RPGs, one of them is often ranked up there really high with actual good games, and I am of course talking about Secret of Mana. This game is a fucking mess and a half. First off, it's an action RPG, so instead of a turned based system, it has a real-time battle system. Now, I am NOT an RPG guy at ALL, but when I say it's a wonky system, it REALLY is. There's a charge meter for every attack, which would work fine, but since you have to GRIND FOR LITERALLY EVERYTHING, it does nothing when you start the game, leaving you to have to needlessly grind, die, backtrack, repeat until you get the other magic characters. And even then, THEIR STUPID ATTACKS HAVE LEVEL-BASED BLOOM!!!! Secret of Mana isn't a game that rewards progression or trial and error like you think it would, it actually is really grindy and unfun, even more so than getting the Golden Peely in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, and THAT WAS ACTUALLY FUN BECAUSE THE GAME HAS GOOD MECHANICS!!! Second, the music fucking sucks, and is annoying, repetitive, and honestly is boring. The field theme is not calming enough to be sleep music but not energetic enough to feel like your on an adventure. Third, the characters and story are bland. Now, not every RPG needs to be deep and engaging with all characters, but every character is the same with a one-note difference. The villains are not unique, and are only just "evil character for being evil." I'd rather them use tropes and be actually INTERESTING instead of them just being......there. Honestly, this game is one of the WORST on the SNES and symbolizes nostalgia-blinding at its WORST!
- Along with one of its supposedly "best" games being God-awful, it has only like 30 games people care about. The Wii U might even have more than it! (Okay maybe not that far, but compared to the Gamecube, the N64, and the NES, it's not even a contest.) Games like Super Mario World, Yoshi's island, Mega Man X, Super Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda a Link to the Pas , are all great games that don't really have direct comparisons on the Genesis. But a lot of games like Star Fox, while still a really impressive game, for the time, and even now considering the hardware it's on, has a version on the N64 and more recently, the the 3DS, where the game has been upgraded to have better models, a more consistent and higher frame rate, and much better controls. Even then, Sonic 3D Blast, while not really an amazing game, did MANY impressive things with only the raw power of the Sega Genesis, such as the special stages, the graphics, and the FVM intro AND the Sega Startup logo. Also, even Mega Man X has a fan conversion on the Genesis, and Castlevania Bloodlines and Control Hard Corps are considered to be some of the BEST of their respective Franchises.
- Third, Nintendo was really picky in this generation with 3rd parties, which led them to go to Sega, too. Back in the 80s, when the market crashed, it was needed, very much so, in fact. But once the 90s rolled around, Nintendo didn't loosen their leash. In fact, they tightened it. They tried to ban developers from going to Sega, and went full force on censorship, leaving games like mortal combat to suck on SNES. Thankfully, around the N64 era they learned to not be monopolistic, and got rid of their stupid ways, even if it took losing one of their potential important partners. Also this is when they used illegal prison labor, so take that as you will.
- And lastly, the Genesis just had more good games, and was a better system. It had a lot more games in general, too. A just as good if not BETTER controller. (I will give the SNES one thing, it had a good controller.) The SNES also had lesser versions of third party games, and instead of being something different like on the Genesis, they were another mediocre platformer that did NOTHING new and fun. They also ran slow and felt like a slog, and all the sprites were stretched out because of the weaker CPU.
Overall, the SNES is an overrated system, with only a handful of games people care about, and symbolizes one of Nintendo's worst era as a company. Fuck the SNES, so STOP JERKING IT OFF. Compared to the Genesis, it doesn't have the games, the speed, and the variety of games.
