Why thankyou sir!

We do our best, of course. My list:

PicoDrive - GP2x
BASin - Windows (:-p)
KegaFusion - Windows
StellaX - Windows

They're the ones I always return to.

thanks ok dunny, its a nice reliable PC speccy emulator that also caters for my gaming needs with its nice mappable joystick support (pspectrum gets above it because i can fit my PSP in my pocket!)

theres still stuff missing of course... like multiple input mapping (multiple joysticks), and linkup play.. but no speccy emulator supports netplay anyway!

i read on WoS you were moving on from it now. (some crazy speccy OS thing!) i'd be lieing if i said i wasnt a bit disapointed!

ZXSpin is a great emulator and is getting loads of use on my PC at the moment. Unlike the others I tried it just works, and well!

Spectaculator works better, but it is pay-only emulator.

It supports a lot of zx's add-ons.

These are...

...my choices, in no particular order:

- Mame32
- CCS64
- WinUAE
- Virtual Coleco
- ZSnes

By the way, I have a related question: why is so difficult to emulate the original Pong game?

Because Pong didn't have a CPU - there was no program code running. It was implemented entirely in discrete logic.

Here's Dan Boris' PONG blog and his PONG circuit simulator..currently takes 15 seconds to render one frame.. serve, then go put the kettle on..

A lot can happen in a few months though, emulators go in and out of popularity. If they didn't I'd still be using PacifiST, Fellow and ZX32!

AmiMasterGear is still my favourite. You can plug a real Sega Master System pad into the Amiga to use, and it runs perfectly on my 030 A1200. Installing this all those years ago opened up a whole extra world of slightly enjoyable console games for me.

On PC? I guess WinMAME is the only one I use to actually play a game, since there just isn't much choice since arcades all died out. I own most of the other systems I would play games on (Amiga, Mega Drive, SNES and Playstation mainly). The Mega Drive emulator for the PS2 isn't too bad though, I forget the name of it now.

Best Amiga Emulators

Of the two that come with the Amiga Forever package, UAE has worked best for me. I find it very simple to use.

That's an understatement, Man, I stopped updating at 106 when they dropped high score dat support, and watching what has become of it since, a bloated, user-hostile mess, I don't regret it for one second. Anyhoo...

1. Mame.
2. WinUAE
3. Kega Fusion
4. Zsnes
5. WinVICE

Magic Engine and Spectaculator are also splendid.

All I'm using is MAME32 (thanks Retro-Nerd for recommendation!) and WinUAE.

So... can you actually emulate N64 and PSX these days?
I would imagine the roms/disc images would be illegal?

Could you, for instance, play Resident Evil or Ocarina of Time on these things, flawlessly? (I have highend gfx etc.)

That would be quite a feat, I would say! Educate me, please.

Yes, and PSX & N64 looks better on emulator than on real console (higher resolution, antialiasing, texture filtering). Try Project64 and ePSXe.

Any emulator witch allows me to do/play what I want properly on my old PIII/550mhz is great in my book.
