So I wanted to start my 2nd game for achievements today (Link to the past) but everytime I get about 20 minutes into the game. More specifically, right after I bring Zelda to the Sanctuary..the emulator crashes and I lose all my progress. At one point I even made it to the first palace, I made sure I saved a few times just in case something happened... emulator crashed and I lost everything again.

Sound > settings > sound driver
Change to SNES9x Directsound, most crashing problems should be gone.

Just so you all know, a crash that corrupts saves can still occur. I started playing Super Mario World, it kept crashing within the first minute. Tried Dexterspet's suggestion, it seemed to work, played the game for a good 3 hours, when I went to close the emulator it crashed and deleted the save file :/

I recommend setting compatibility settings to Windows XP SP3, since that's the SDK used targets Windows XP.

Emus would crash on me all the time, I haven't experienced any crashes since then.

Why still came this plugin ith the emu. :(
My first time was with Donkey Kong and it was ok, but the second time Street Fighter, was crashing, I near leave this site before change the sound config.

I also have problem with the emulator giving crash, the rare is that it occurs randomly. Sometimes play for five minutes and he crash or play for two hours without having the slightest problem.
