What is an SMC file?

An SMC file is a Super Nintendo (SNES) video game ROM used by SNES emulators, such as Snes9x, RetroArch, and ZSNES. It contains a game saved in the original file format used by the SNES. Using SMC files and a Super Nintendo emulator, gamers can play old Super Nintendo games on their PCs.

More Information

Many SMC files were originally created and used by the Super Magicom, a device SNES gamers could use to create and store backups of Super Nintendo video games. This allowed gamers to continue playing a game even if they lost their game cartridge or the game became corrupted. These days, most SMC files are stored on and downloaded from emulator-related websites, which provide retro gamers with the ability to play Super Nintendo games on their PCs.

SMC files are related to .SFC files, which are also Super Nintendo ROMs. SFC files are saved in the file format used by the Super Famicom, which is the original, Japanese version of the Super Nintendo system. Most SNES emulators that can open SMC files can also open SFC files.

How do I open an SMC file?

You can open an SMC file and play the Super Nintendo game it contains in a variety of Super Nintendo emulators, including:

  • Snes9x (cross-platform)
  • BizHawk (Windows, Linux)
  • RetroArch (cross-platform)

What is an SMC file?

An SMC file contains data dumped from a SmartMedia Card, a flash memory card used by various devices to store information. It stores an exact copy of the data transferred from the card. SMC files are most often used to contain data for GP32 games, which is a handheld game console released in 2001.

More Information

SmartMedia cards are thin cards that look similar to floppy disks and can be inserted and removed from devices to store and transfer information. The cards were introduced in the 1990s and were commonly used in the 2000s with digital cameras, PDAs, portable digital audio players, and handheld game consoles.

The storage capacity of the cards ranges from 2MB to 128MB, which means SMC files may range from 2MB to 128MB in size since they store an exact copy of the data. As technology improved, better storage devices were developed and the production of SmartMedia cards ceased in the 2010s.

SmartMedia Card SMC files are typically used by gaming enthusiasts, specifically nostalgic gamers who enjoyed playing the South Korean GP32 handheld game console manufactured by Game Park. SMC files that store game data can be opened and emulated on a computer using MAME and GeePee32.
