higan 092-1


higan (formerly bsnes) is a Nintendo multi-system emulator that began development on 2004-10-14. It currently supports the following systems:

  • Nintendo
  • Super Nintendo
  • Game Boy
  • Game Boy Color
  • Game Boy Advance
  • Nintendo DS

higan also supports the following subsystems:

  • Super Game Boy
  • BS-X Satellaview
  • Sufami Turbo

higan focuses on accuracy and clean code above all else. It never uses speed or compatibility hacks. As a result, the minimum system requirements are higher than with other emulators.


I decided to take advantage of MinGW-w64's ability to generate 32-bit Windows executables with the -m32 flag for v092. Apparently this was a mistake, as it produces executables that do not actually run on true 32-bit operating systems.

So I've uploaded new builds of higan, this time using the 32-bit MinGW to build the 32-bit release. I also took the opportunity to fix a few minor issues that were noted after the release. So if you've already downloaded higan v092, please download the updated version.
