Best emulator for each system?

29 posts in this topic

I think it could be helpful for newbies, like me, make a list of recommendations for each platform/system emulators.

Also, indicate the reasons why one is better than another.

Greetings.

Thanks talbin :good:

But, the sense of this thread is, rather, that everyone expose their personal experiences when has opted for one specific emulator.

I want to know the reasons why he/she believes that is the best option, beyond the official recommendations of one web.

Greetings.

N64 = Project64

PS2 = Pcsx2

PS1 = ePSXe

Gamecube = Dolphin

All above are ones I use and have had very little problems.

Retroarch is the perfect starter emulator, once you figure one core out they are all almost the same.

I use MAME for almost all systems pre-N64. It provides a single configuration interface, and works well on my OS of choice: Linux.

Sega: Kega Fusion

SNES: SNES9x

Gameboy: Visual Boy Advance

PlayStation: ePSXe

PSP: PPSSPP

N64: Project 64 1.6

NES: VirtuaNES

I also occasionally use Retro Arch, but it lacks many of the features, such as up-scaling, that many single system emulators have.

Hmm - most of my research has shown bsnes as the best for snes and project 64 tends to include ransomware..   :/

Yes, Project 64 can have ransomware, it is only in later versions like 2.3. I've used 1.6 for years without any problems. 2.1 is also safe, but 1.6 is a much better emulator anyways.

I love retroarch, the perfect all in one solution! Why have 20 different programs installed when you can have 1?

I do use dolphin for wii and gamecube games.

It looks like retro arch now has a dolphin core...

I have been seeing more and more people suggesting better results not using retro arch, I don't really understand why though :/ so much to learn.

Just curious, is there anytime RetroArch doesn't perform as well as a dedicated emulator?

Website has information on all ones emulation needs. Just point noobs to it.

Most emulators for older systems are all high compatibility so it is pretty much pick your poison there. 

I personally use Mesen for nes, snes9x for snes, and mupen64plus for n64

I notice that most are loving retro arch. This may be a noob question but how many platforms does retro arch successfully emulate?

Almost everything from psx down.

retroarch has cores for psx, n64, nes, snes, arcade (mame), saturn, sega genesis, master system, etc.

 

Go to the official page and it will list all the cores available.
