Post Zsnes 1.42 lags on windows 7
So, I decided to reboot up the ol' emulator after what, maybe 3 years?

Normally this is my go-to version for this computer, and has been for some time. When I load it, though, it doesn't go smooth. The music/sound kinda stutters. I've never seen it do this before. Computer old age? Version incompatibility? Not sure. Did all traditional things that normally reduce lag like minimize processes and go on high performance. Still nothing.

The strangest thing is that I run a Ps1 emulator just fine.

Nope. It isn't even bad with netplay, it simply doesn't have it.

Really, ZSNES is old enough that problems are inevitable. You oughta be running something newer.

Snes9x. Higan.

Both Retroarch and OpenEmu, which have both Snes9x and Higan cores.

BizHawk has Bsnes, another possible alternative.

Gaminable - sadly doesn't have a snazzy UI like ZSNES's
