> Of course they are written for the SNES CPU, that's what they have to run on! You can sometimes get them to run in an emulator at least to display the GUI but the backup unit's themselves aren't emulated. Even so you may be able to use an emulator to assist somewhat in adding features or fixing bugs in your BIOS. If you really wanted to you could add the copier emulation into ZSNES or snes9x then you'd be set.

Copier emulation would be extreme. ;-)

But adding features would be awesome. I do know a few things about coding (I know C and ARM asm) but that is of little use on the SNES. How difficult would it be to add HiROM support (probably very hard)?

I just got my BIOS running in ZSNES (wohoo!). It's a Super Disk Interceptor BIOS (I don't think even GoodSNES detects it). I'm not even sure if my copier supports an upgradable BIOS, but would it work if I just copied the BIOS as a normal ROM and ran it like that? The BIOS under an emu says "02 FDC ERROR 00", probably due to the lack of a floppy disk. Do you have any tips for BIOS haxoring?
