SSF is a Sega Saturn emulator developed by Japanese programmer Shima and first released around the turn of the new millenium. One of the system's more accurate emulators, it has seen multiple updates in recent years to include ISO and bin/cue support where it was previously required to run discs off a physical drive. The emulator has also seen Android support in recent years.
- BIOS file not required, but may improve compatibility in certain cases
- All regions (PAL & NTSC) emulated
- Backup memory emulated
- Savestates supported
- Joystick support
- Can dump screenshots in BMP format, and audio in WAV format
- Unoptimized PAL games can be made run at the speed of their NTSC counterpart by setting the "Emulation Speed" lever to 1.20, often without unwanted acceleration of music and sound playback.
- A certain degree of input lag can be compensated for by disabling V-sync and enabling VDP2 Ram write timing.
