If you receive a black screen or your ROM doesn't load, you need to download the latest version of BSNES and make sure the rom file is a .SFC extension.
Additionally try a different ROM (preferably version 1.0) or re-download from a different source.
Your emulator might be on "Mute Audio" or your default output device needs to be configured correctly. Go to Settings > Drivers and select the correct driver and output device.
You might have noticed while playing hacks on bsnes some sprites and other graphics don’t load correctly and are just a garbled mess along with the sprites just not working at all.

This is a common issue when playing ROM hacks. To fix - simply go to Settings > Compatibility and tick "Echo Shadow RAM" and "No VRAM Blocking".
BSNES has no default key to enter full screen mode. Users will need to configure it by going to Settings > Hotkeys > Toggle Fullscreen.
Yes, BSNES is able to fast forward/speed up games and can be configured by going to Settings > Hotkeys > Fast Forward.
