Stripped version for older systems

    This game is a beast. It's so jam pack full of features that it makes lesser PCs cry. Even on nicely spec'ed systems I've noticed additional latency in joystick response compared to older versions of SMC. Not a ton, but even a few ms difference can be felt to a veteran player.

    The new features are just too wonderful to do without though. I think if I had to give something up it'd be the themes and skins. Would this reduce the size of the game enough to give a performance increase? Maybe a NES only version with just 8-bit music and graphics?

    It mostly slows down because of SNES musics.

    It's not just SNES music, though. I have a decent system and I run into the few ms delay issue as well, and I always play with only the NES skins active. I just have to restart Firefox, but sometimes even after just loading up the game it will do it occasionally.

    I don't know if I would use a stripped down version myself, but I support the idea if it can be done fairly easily. :)

    Well, multiple people have had issues with this, so an SMBC Lite may be called for, if it's not too much effort to set up. Default skins and music only, I guess. I'd keep using the full version of course, since my system is custom-built.
