Files that end in .smc are Super Nintendo Entertainment System files. They allow you to play SNES games using your computer by using an emulator, which acts as the system. The emulators necessary to play .smc files are free and range in size and features. You can download an emulator and have it up and running in less than 10 minutes.
Open a Web browser such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.
Navigate to http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/snes/. Select one of the five SNES emulators to download. They all serve the basic purpose of running .smc files, but deciding which one to use is purely based on user preference.
Open your SNES emulator and click "open," which is typically located under "file" for most emulators. Select your .smc file to run it.
Tips & Warnings
- You must own the SNES game that you have the .smc file for to avoid copyright infringement.
