The SNES Rom websites are badly designed and full of broken links.

That's why I'd just go for an all-ROMs torrent. Even if you only want like 1% of the games.

I was considering getting the ROMs as part of the pain.

The overall process was under an hour. People are queuing for longer in NYC to grab a SNES Mini right now.

I'm not queuing at all. Also, they don't call it queuing in NYC.

Do you have any not released in America games on your list?

I tired to add some more games to my console last week, but for some reason had problems. There's a new fan translation of Super Famicon Wars though. May be worth getting!

Edit: Never mind. Got SFW on it now!

I haven't played Advance Wars in a long time. I remember Advance Wars having cutesy children characters. It didn't have Hitler (sorry, "Hetler"), did it?

No it definitely had cutesier characters than Hetler. I enjoyed that style, though.

Yeah. Its safe.

The only thing you have to watch out for is using the save states when you have a ton of games installed might auto deselect games to make room for the save state files on hakchi.

So best to delete your save states after finishing a game and dont super max out the memory even if you could push the limit real close on installed games.

It's more about the size of the games than game total. You start putting Gameboy Advance games on there and they'll eat the memory up real quick.

Why are Gameboy Advance games more memory intensive than SNES games?

They don't have better graphics than SNES games from what I've seen.

I think maybe as time went on and the storage capacity for a cart was increased, companies put less effort into compression.

Too bad, since they're lower res and have worse sound quality.

How much storage is in the SNES Mini?

Hello.

WaWard the computer engineer here.

Probably one of the factors is the address space.

SNES used a 16 bit address space
GBA a 32 bit address space

Meaning that you wonít necessarily have double the memory consumption, but some data types will be doubled unless optimized.

But Iím presuming thatís one of many factors, but harder to know without the details.

Compression might have an impact on memory but it would mostly be on CPU time. I donít think itís a huge factor in this.

Why wouldn't compression have an effect on memory? Isn't that the purpose of compression?

On the storage, sure.

In RAM, it needs to be decompressed to something that takes up more memory than the compressed asset.

On modern devices, probably less of an issue, but on primitive devices like this, Iíd bet they had to do all of it in software.

I thought storage was the issue in getting it on the SNES classic. Didn't know RAM was an appreciable factor.
