Some games were still playable and you could only notice the framedrop with the slow playing music. Others (ex. Aladdin) simply crawled from the start.
Up to this day I regret not having the patience to look a bit further... this totally ruined my experience with FFIII which I did finish using ZNES.
At some point I saw a video with footage of FFIII running on real hardware and I was like... wtf! So I did my research and I finally settled with BSNES which instantly solved all issues I had.
Hmmm, I originally created this DVD back in early 2006... At the time I chose the 2 emulators "Snes9x" and "Zsnes"; never did try "Bsnes".

Personally I like "Snex9x" better and that's what I mainly use. I've used "Zsnes" a little, but I never had the experiences that you've mentioned.

Just tried "Aladdin" in both emulators and exactly the same good performance for me
