higan is a multi-system emulator with an uncompromising focus on accuracy and code readability.
It is a research project meant to improve all emulators through open source collaboration, and as such is not meant to be used as a standard emulator for playing games (although it can be used as such with some patience.)
Testing is greatly appreciated so that the emulation quality can be improved. Such improvements will migrate downstream to user-focused emulators such as bsnes.
It currently emulates the following systems: Famicom, Famicom Disk System, Super Famicom, Super Game Boy, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Player, SG-1000, SC-3000, Master System, Game Gear, Mega Drive, Mega CD, PC Engine, SuperGrafx, MSX, MSX2, ColecoVision, Neo Geo Pocket, Neo Geo Pocket Color, WonderSwan, WonderSwan Color, SwanCrystal, Pocket Challenge V2.
Git is used for the development of new releases, and represents a staging environment. higan is currently in the midst of a major redesign, so please expect rapid changes and some instabilities during this period.
If stability is required, please download the latest stable release from the official website.
