    Simply not all of the games work. The creator of the "4iphone" series is very public about that. Only certain games will run. Super Mario RPG is likely one of them.
    There's nothing you can do if that is so.

    It even says on the snes4iphone page in cydia that Super Mario RPG doesn't work.

    Because the emulator is not programmed to handle that specific ROM. Most likely, the game requires some extra resource that the creator of the emulator does not know how to implement yet.

    The original cartridge of Super Mario RPG has one of the SNES enhancement chips, in this case the Super Accelerator 1 (SA-1) chip.

    So, the ROM has some special instructions for being used with that chip.

    Probably snes4iphone hasn't emuled this instruction set, and the game will not run.

    This is a very old thread... but Super Mario RPG works perfectly fine running on iPod Touch 4th Gen with the alternate SNES emulator. I think it's SNES9X or something like that.

    Regardless-- the game runs almost flawlessly nowadays with that.
