First, do you have the latest here for Snes9x http://emulation.net/snes/ at least the first three, or four for net play.

I don't know anything about this emulation, never even heard of it, but Stuffit Expander should be able to expand zip files. I routinely download zip files which it handles for a game I play that uses certain files that are cross platform. Hope something here helps. k

I believe that SNES9x uses the zip file itself and no unzipping is neccessary.
