Title: A publisher called City Connection made a "Better SSF."
Post by: Spooniest on October 12, 2021, 09:42:24 am
I don't know if they quietly purchased the right to use the source code or what, but it seems SSF has been "upgraded" to an official Saturn Emulator on the Switch.

The article above links to this thread:

So, that's a thing. I was wondering a while back on these very forums what had ever become of Saturn emulation, honestly. Seemed to always be a bit of a stick in the mud about being emulated, but I now recall that some folks had tipped me off that it's been picking back up.

... I still haven't played Panzer Dragoon Saga, though...haven't had time

I wonder if that explains it. The last few revisions have been able to run .bin/.cue without needing to mount an ISO to a virtual disc drive.

It seems Kronos is a good compliment, whatever once can't run/well the other emulator may.

So yeah, as long as you can find the games in .bin/.cue format, Saturn emulation has come a long way.
