Emulators on the Amiga

Probably asked before as I did search through a few pages already and found not much. But my question is, what emulators are available that work on the Amiga that emulate other systems. Which ones are the best, including links!

Thanks

Oh almost forgot can they run quick enough through a PCMCIA?

I think ZX-Spectrum emulators are great on the Amiga because they look like the real thing on a CRT. If you got a 040 or 060 you can emulate an 128k, if you got a 030 a 48k is great.

Forgot the name of the best emus but in them you can also set up custom control so you can map q-a o-p to the joystick, very handy.

Now I have some time

I use a few Emulators on my Amiga's such as ShapeShifter (Mac 68k) ZXAM Spectrum, ASP (spectrum) CoolNES, AmiGameboy, AmiMasterGear and Mame060.

I've tried others with varying success but I find the above work really well.

On your 020 @ 25mhz you will be able to Run most of these just fine, Mac you might want to stick to Mono stuff and CoolNES might be a touch on the slow side.

For Spectrum on your setup ZXAM will be smoother/faster but ASP is more accurate, I particularly enjoy using ASP on my A4000 as it supports AHI and RTG so I can use my Graphics and Sound cards

The Console Emulators benefit from a CD32 controller to give you access to all the buttons.

Mame is only for 060's and really needs RTG to be playable so not much use to you! Even then you can only really play basic Games like Pac Man, Donkey Kong, etc.

I made a list of them, it is at http://amigan.1emu.net/aw/ami-emus.txt

I haven't updated it recently so it may be somewhat out of date.

Thanks for the list Minuous, I'm going to try some of these.

Shame AmiPCEngine is not finished, I'm going to try the others

Spectrum emulator ZXAM is working great, best so far on my Amiga

CoolNES runs every game perfectly but pressing ESC to quit and it just keeps reloading the emulator again and back into the game

Not had any luck with the Amstrad emulators!
