byuu developer of higan and bsnes

Hi, I’m Byuu. I am a computer programmer with 20 years of experience, and I have been employed as a software engineer for the past 13 years.

My primary focus is on systems programming. I am most well-known for my work as the sole developer and project lead of the bsnes and higan emulators, which I have worked on for the past 15 years. I have written complete (if not perfect) emulators for 24 unique hardware devices spanning 12 very different architectures during this time.  I have also spent the past 8 years working to preserve the complete international library of games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or Super Famicom in Japan.”
