I'm getting a brand new Pentium i5 quad core pc delivered on wed, so I will try out Micro64 again, I hope it will run smooth enough on that rig?

I currently use Magic Engine 1.13 for PCEngine although its a bit dated now I think and there's quite a fair bit of screen tear
Any other better or new PCEngine emulators out now for windows?

Hmm Higan sounds really good, it supports far more than just snes

Famicom, Super Famicom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS

higan also supports the following subsystems:

Super Game Boy, BS-X Satellaview, Sufami Turbo

Could you upload this cd somewhere please?

Sure it will. And you can tinker a lot with the great PAL emulation. Tons of options to mimic old CRT TVs/Monitors.

Do you use the Vsync option in ME? It works fine here, no tearing at all. Alternatives are Ootake or the multi-emulator mednafen (preferable with the available external GUIs). I however still prefer Magic Engine.

It is a nearly perfect SNES emulator for sure. The other emulated Nintendo systems works good too, but maybe not with 100% perfection. You have to try it for yourself.

Hmm thats weird, I flicked back and forth with the Vsync options as suggested and now the tearing has vanished in both window and full screen mode! Guess that did something

Just had a blast on Kato & Ken and PC Genjin <3

Why did I stop using this emulator again? sooooo goood

It's a CD, meaning it's 700MB inc PAR2 files. I've only just rar'd it up and created PARs, it'll take me about 45mins to upload, except I can't create a directory, 'Permission Denied' in the ~Public_User_Uploads folder. Was going to create a folder BarryB and upload to there.

Are you using the Uploader account login and password?

I'd personally appreciate if people would just upload the ISO instead of those hideous 15 MB part RAR achives...

I'm probably going to download this. Just for you, I'll re-upload it in a single archive when I've extracted it, if nobody else beats me to it.

What's hideous about them? No fun downloading a 700mb ISO to find it's corrupted during the download on your end, rars/pars can at least stop that.

Well, I'll leave the final decision to TCD.

Are users occasionally finding that their downloads from the server are corrupted? (It's not happened to me since I got a solid internet connection.)

I'm using STeeM with hyperspin front end, this is what I use for all my emulated systems - Can be a bit bloaty though as I have it setup with demo videos for each game, boxes etc

I Have the separate ST games setup - Think I grabbed them from underground-gamer. Couldn't deal with the multi game release packs.

If you want a lightweight front end try Mala

Never happened to me and if it happens to you I'd recommend using a proper FTP client. You could just use one RAR and one PAR. As I said that's my personal opinion and if prowler decides to upload a one part archive, I'd keep that version.

I agree, gone are the days where you have to download in 15Mb chunks!

I don't care either way, rars or iso as long as it works. At least BarryB is making time & effort to upload it, he didn't have to do it.

Thanks BarryB downloading now

The file server is used for a lot of things these days, but let's just say that Atari ST compilations have a very low priority. I'll not delete it, but please understand that ST files aren't really sought after on the file server. Thanks.

Anyway .. let's get back on topic, some other good emulators I use Bloodwych are,

Project 64 (Nintendo 64)
Spectaculator (ZX Spectrum) (pay for emulator, cheap though)
Visual Boy Advance (Gameboy Advance) there's probably better ones out there now maybe?
Yape (Plus/4) (Vice also emulates Plus/4 too)

SSF? A Dual Core with, iirc, at least SSE2.

It's still in development, but not that much progress in the last years. Check some SVNs.
