bsnes is a free software SNES emulator for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows which aims to emulate the original SNES hardware as accurately as possible. As such, bsnes is a low-level emulator. As of version 0.87, bsnes can run all SNES titles commercially released through the cycle-accurate emulation of their coprocessors (if applicable) with no known bugs. Development of bsnes began on October 14, 2004 and the first version was released in May 2005 for Windows. Since then, it has been ported to GNU/Linux and Mac OS X. The emulator has always been open source and is currently under GPLv3 licensure. It is still being actively developed. Recently, the author changed the name of the project to higan to reflect the focus on multiple systems. bsnes was the first emulator to feature SPC7110 emulation, cycle-accurate SPC700 emulation, cycle-accurate SuperFX emulation, and Super Game Boy emulation. Newer versions of bsnes can also experimentally emulate the NES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and Nintendo DS. A fork of bsnes v.082 (the last version with sole SNES support) was developed by LuigiBlood called bsnes-sx2. It adds peripherals such as the XBAND and Super Famicom Box, but
