Snes9x is an SNES emulator written in C++ with official ports for Linux, Microsoft Windows, AmigaOS 4, Mac OS X, MorphOS, iOS, PSP, and Android. Both Windows RT and Windows Phone 8 have an unofficial port named Snes8x.
Development of Snes9x began in July 1997 when Snes96's Gary Henderson and Snes97's Jerremy Koot merged their respective emulators to create Snes9x. Since then, Snes9x has been unofficially ported to more platforms than any other emulator. It's last update was in 2011.
Snes9x was among the first to emulate most SNES enhancement chips at some level. It was also the first SNES emulator to offer sound output. In version 1.53, it added support for Cg shaders.
The emulator PocketSNES for Pocket PCs is based on Snes9X.
