Thread: Has anything changed in the last 5 or so years ? EMUS

  1. #1

    Default Has anything changed in the last 5 or so years ? EMUS

    I think its been over 5 years now, but I still have lots of stuff I used to play. NES emu, Neo Geo emu, Super Nintendo, Mame32 for the arcade games, Daphne for the Laserdisc Games.

    I still have it all stored away on an external Hard drive, but I get that urge to get it all out again and play it all again.

    I was starting to look around on the net to see if there were newer EMU players and such, or how to know if there is up to date stuff can that information be found here ?

    Oh yes, a lot has changed in 5 years, im pretty sure someone else can provide more examples then me, but BSNES has 100% accurate emulation, Mame32 Is constantly updating, and there have been new NES emulators.

    OK thanks. I just want to get everything up to date. I had everything set up to play , and then when I stopped playing I just copied everything over into a folder on an external hard drive, and now I want to copy it all back over to my computer and get all the directories set up, input controllers etc

    I really liked my coin op games I was playing with Mame32. I am not sure if there is a new and better platform than mame32.

    There was one game I played but it always played slow. It was a star wars Game, but this game played so slow, like frame by frame slow. Its the one star wars game where you fight darth vader in the end with a light saber.

    Daphne was another I need to try to figure how to get set back up, I miss playing Dragons Lair 1, 2 space ace, and Cliff Hanger.

    I still have this Magnavox game that Phillips made I think. I bought dragons lair one and 2 for it, Zelda, some movies .. It was a neat gaming device.

    I guess I will have to snoop around on the net some to find info about updated stuff, and like always look out for the malware and trojans.

    no, mame still is the leader. I remember that game at the arcade but forget the name. I can test it if you get the name.

    Just use this site to update your emulators. There are also lots of fronts ends now. Quickplay and hyperspin are two that I know of. Also a lot of improvements on controller adapters. See my sig for a project that handles them all.

    The name of that star wars game was Star wars Trilogy
    Here is the game on the firts link and the battle with vader on second one. When i tried to play it on my Mame32 IT was extremely slow and choppy. Im not sure if it was a bad ROM i have, or Mame32 didnt play it fast enough. IM remember reading ( BACK THEN 5 years ago) That it said something about doing it on 64 bit instead of 32, but I tried playing with with a 64 bit and it changed nothing, I did a lot of things, which I forget what all I did, but it always played frame by frame slow choppy.

    Well nevermind I cant post links it seems.. But you can find them on You tube,, star wars trilogy

    Another question I have, is a Game Like CrossBow where you shot at the screen , or Chiller where you also shot at the screen with a light gun. Can you buy light guns and shoot at your Screen or do you need a special kind of screen ? I play my computer in a 55 inch Sony Bravia any way. Not sure how light guns work


    I play on my computer. I dont even know what Mame I should be using. You have Mame, mameui, Mame32 etc .. For someone who just plays on a PC with windows 7 .. which one should I be using. I been using mame32 , but not sure if it really matter what one I used.

    There are also lots of fronts ends now. Quickplay and hyperspin are two that I know of.
    Not sure what that means Front End. I was trying to find out more information about this.

    For light guns look in to top gun. Or some use the wii light gun with glovepi. Mame is Mame, the ui and 32 are just ports. 32 is for a 32 bit os where 64 is for 64 bit, ui is just a user interface version of mame. A front end is software that lets you manage all rom and console emulators and plays with a simple double click. Some like hyper spin let you see video and picture previews.

    huh, never heard of BSNES, I'll have to look into that. I definitely need to stay on top of the news and try new emulators I suppose.

    In terms of what? compatibility? I'd say FB Alpha is the most used. There is way more online players on FB Alpha + GPPO. Than M.A.M.E. + Kaillera.

    If your emulator programs dont work as well I suggest you try zsnew (SNES) and JNes (Nes). But this would depend what you are using. They work
    on modern systems (win 7) but might have problems if you use something before this or a slower pc.

    Its not one I bought, but the last game I received was a gift from Alucard, and it was Left 4 Dead. Thanks again, Con

    Actually, I guess Left 4 Dead IS the last game I bought, but it was a gift for burpingcat.

    Hmm, wouldnt it make more sense for this thread to be in General Gaming?
