Emulation

13 posts in this topic

I am looking at setting up a PC for emulation of some great games - no matter what the system.  I downloaded a bunch of emulators, all working great, but just dunno what games I wanna play.  Systems can be MAME, SNES, Genesis, whatever.  Just fancy some old-school gaming :)

 

Any suggestions?

Depends on how recent you want to go. The systems you name can be emulated on 7 or more year old PC's with the right emulators. If you fully want to be able to emulate a Wii (Doplhin) you'll need quite a bit of power.

I had those systems running on an Athlon XP 2600+ with a Geforce 7800GS.

Considering some Genesis games are available for sale on Steam/Impulse/wherever this might go into questionable territory.

Only if someone brings it up! :s

Well, am thinking the "classic" era of gaming.  Streetfighter, side scrollers, Turtles, top-down shooters with ridiculous power-ups.

Whether or not they do.  Emulation is generally ignored in the case where the products are no longer for sale...equivalent to piracy when they are.

It's called abandonware.

 

Also, in a lot of countries, if the item can't be bought it can be obtained by any reasonable method, Australia being one of those countries.

 

I think so long as you are idiotic about it it's legal :)

Thanks, but please, let's not get bogged down in legalities here.  I never said if I do or do not own a license to any game on any platform.  End of conversation and so any further will be reported as off topic purely to keep this on topic :) :)

I mention Amiga because back in the day it usually had the superior version to multi-platform games.

 

Commodore 64

Detective - Amazing game for its time.

Strider 1,2

I was a C64 and Amiga child so i can't recommend any more console games.

heh, some emulators (GPL licensed) even bundled in some airlines,

I know this because it has the same emulator glitch when i play on PC,

the glitch was addressed on newer version of emulator.

I remember one time when i flew on Virgin Atlantic. We had SNES with 10 games.

That must have been running something like snes9x as it was years ago and it kept crashing :laugh:
