converting snes classic roms
the snes classic uses it's own rom format, established on the virtual console, and it's own emulator. here's how to convert those roms to regular smc roms to be used in a standard snes emulator on a pc.
you will need to use hakchi2 ce to cache the sfroms. once hakchi successfully recognizes your snes classic, go to the games_cache folder and you will see loads of folders. the names represent game ids. here's a table of what games the ids are assigned to.
|clv-p-sacce||contra 3: the alien wars|
|clv-p-saale||donkey kong country|
|clv-p-sabte||final fantasy 3|
|clv-p-saaqe||kirby super star|
|clv-p-saake||kirby's dream course|
|clv-p-saaee||the legend of zelda: link to the past|
