Greetings! I have not posted emulation news in a very long time, but thought it important to let you all know that Icer Addis ("Sardu of NESticle/Genecyst/Callus fame) has released the long-rumored SNESticle source code on GitHub yesterday. For those who may not remember or may not have been around, SNESticle was a rumored Super Nintendo emulator for DOS/Windows 9x that Icer was working on around the time of his popular NES emulator, NESticle. The source code below, released by Icer himself, confirms it! See below for details.
