Emulators
« on: June 24, 2017, 06:51:03 AM »
So, for the past five years I have been almost exclusively playing emulators on my laptop. Mostly Nintendo64 (Project64) and Gameboy (VisualboyAdvance) just to go back and beat the games I never could figure out when I was younger. Those games, however, have either gotten stale or are unavailable.
Anyone have a favorite ROM or emulation software they could recommend?

I posted about it before on here, but Project Emu is the best I've ever used.

It has an emulator for pretty much every system, and has a pretty good layout as well.

I have a ps1 emu that I use here and there but I've logged in heavy MAME usage with the old fighting games. I found this site recently, it has good information.

I've been playing Melee and Double Dash on Dolphin for a bit. Theyre not RAM intensive at all, I get 60 frames on my macbook air. I've also been chipping away at sonic 2 in OpenEmu
When discussions spiral into shit like this it's time to drop 250ug lsd and stare at a lake for a minute.

Still upset that THPS2 stopped working on iOS... I used to play that every day. It's pretty inexcusable that Activision just removed it and never responded to questions/complaints.  Now I use PCSXR to play THPS2 on Mac. I also use sixtyforce (N64) and OpenEmu. I'd recommend playing Banjo Kazooie on N64, if you haven't already. Also enjoyed re-playing 1080, although I found it impossible to do the tricks on the emulator version. Diddy Kong racing is also pretty fun in one player mode.

I need to get MAME up and running again but I have a ton of older Neogeo and CPS1-2 rom sets that don't have the current "accepted" checksum values and it gets to be a pain to hunt that stuff down. KAWAKS and the like tend to be more forgiving with your roms.

I can't tell you what the last EMUs I used for 8 and 16 bit consoles were, I tend to just grab whatever from the top of a page. I'd like to try out some Turboduo ISO emulators so I can play Lords of Thunder again although my old laptop died and my wife doesn't want me putting stuff of questionable origin on her new one.

its a tony hawk underground 2 mod that basically aims to combine all the Tony Hawk levels, features, & content in to one game. I haven't played it. I just know it exist

I've put some hours into it. Pretty fun and online community is still active. It's surprising how much work they've put into getting almost every level working on THUG2 engine.
