Recommended Emulators

Recommended Posts

I would change your NES emulator for FCEUltra. Nestopia isn't that good.

Nestopia is miles ahead of all other nes emu's in terms of compatibility, ease of use and features.

As for n64 it's good to have a couple, there're games that work on some emus and not the others so for best compatability you should have 2 or 3 installed just in case. check this out for more info http://bmgcl.emuxhaven.net/n64mgcl/N64ConfigList.htm

For snes - zsnes for the win, by far.

megadrive - kega fusion (programmed by an ex sega software programmer so you can't go wrong) or gens

msx - blue msx

c64 - winvice (no zip support .. grrr)

pc engine - magic engine

saturn - ssf

psx - psx 1.6 (no plugins required - hurray)

Visual Boy Advance is definetely the best for GB Roms. I'd go with ZSNES. I really haven't tried the other SNES emulators, and I don't need to because ZSNES has given me 0 problems; and I've played quite a few games on it.

For Nintendo 64">N64 I would get both Project 64 and 1964. No Nintendo 64">N64 emulator is perfect as of yet, so if a rom doesn't work on Project 64, it should work fine on 1964 and vice versa.

And I will also recommend you use www.zophar.net

FCEUltra for NES

(it has a nice interface for playing around in cartridge memory).

ZSNES for SNES

(was initially hand-coded purely in ASM and works better than SNES9X on real old computers, but SNES9X is great, too).

1964 or Project64 for Nintendo 64">N64

(though this is about where I would try to get the actual control deck as to my knowledge, very few n64 games can be emulated, mostly just the popular ones and even those tend to be glitchy).

What the hell is a Sega? Nintendo dominated the market and had the best games during that era. Sega's got nothing that Nintendon't :P

Anyway, I'm just going by what a friend told me ;) ;) ;)

Playstation 2 emulation

Well pcsx2 0.94 has been out for a month, many more games are playable and if you have a dual core system that is overclocked and a 150 dollar very recent video card you can. The graphics plug-ins have been maturing rapidly and games like Metal Gear Solid 3 are now almost fully playable on powerful system.

Mame is a great emulator: If you'd like to play Killer Instinct 1 & 2 in all their glory, don't go for the worse snes or n64 version. THe arcade has the best versions.

Being on Linux I use sdlmame for arcade games, mupen64 for n64 games mess for many different console games and since I use a 64 bit version of the os my choices are a l ittle bit mor limited for example my favorite system the "Sega cd" emulation leaves behind much to be desired I know gens will work but there are no 64 bit binaries and as is a bit buggy on my system.
