Due to the unbridled amount of questions regarding Emulation (what a joke), I've taken it upon myself to create the Ultimate Emulation related thread. Questions can be posted here, and I'll answer the best I can. Here you'll find links to emulation sites, translations sites, plugins, and a little extra information to make your wildest Emulation dreams come true! Err... maybe not. Anyway...read away; ask away; fap away. Translations: .NET This site contains just about every Fan Translation out there for various systems, mainly SNES as fan translations focus mostly on that system. If you're unsure how to patch a ROM with a translation read the FAQ at the same site Emulation: For ANY and I mean any emulator you would ever dream of wanting, go to It is updated constantly (not so constant these days, but good enough) and will contain just about everything you need emulation wise. Another helpful emulation forum that is updated more often try: LINK!! Suggested Emulators to use: Playstation: ePSXe ePSXe I recommend this above all others, some sites will say other emulators are better for some games, but I find this works fine for anything. SNES: SNES9x - compatability is higher than ZSNES. I still prefer the ZSNES layout and familiarity, but it is no longer the best due to some glitches. Alternatives: ZSNES SNESGT Genesis: Either Gens or Kega Kega will do you well. Kega supports Sega CD as well. NES: Try the suggestions at Zophar's Domain under the NES emulators section. I don't even know which ones are good anymore. Nintendo 64: These are a little more difficult to get working, but either 1964 or Project64 should work. Arcade: Simple solution for nearly all arcade, including NEO-GEO would be MAME. I would suggest the MAME32 or better. NeoRageX is a good alternative to MAME for NEO-GEO games. GBA/GB/GBC: Only one I will reccomend, there are others that work great, but I use Visual Boy Advance. VBA it plays them all. no$GBA Nintendo DS - I haven't tested these too much, but no$GBA does play FFXII Revenant Wings very well: no$GBA Also, iDeaS is another great NDS emulator that plays TWEWY while no$ also does, but I've heard it's buggy and cannot be completed with no$: Dreamcast: Dreamcast Emulation - Dreamcast emulation is a little tricky but it has certainly come a long way. There are only 2 emulators worth noting: and . Extra information: Orochi-kun. Dreamcast info courtesy of slimscane. Wii/Gamecube: Dolphin Emulator: Shit's so cash. PS2: There is really only one good one that I know of (and it's near-flawless, but requires a high-end machine): As for others, check Zophar's; they have a huge list under their Emulators section. Quick note: Cassini is great for Sega Saturn emulation, but it's a bit bugged. Plugins: N64 and PSX are the two main players you want to think about getting some good plugins for. My N64 knowledge is limited, so I suggest you go into the forums at the Project64 site to see their list of plugins Message Board. As for ePSXe, I suggest Pete's plugins for Video and he also has some ok sound plugins as well. I recommend Eternal SPU for sound however, which can be found in the Plugins section of Zophar Since ROMs are illegal for the most part, unless you own the game, ePSXe can actually run the original CDs, they will not be discussed in great detail here. I suggest the normal P2P programs to find these, and there are even some links on the various sites I've posted to ROM sites. I think that about covers it... any furhter questions should be directed to this thread, and I'll probably be able to answer 90% of them. Hopefully we get someone the answer the extra 10% I can't. For the PSX and PS2 emulators you'll need to go find your own BIOS file. I can help with this in private.
