What's on your emulator right now?

Post by fordie020376 » Fri Jan 19, 2007 4:48 pm

Hello everyone I am new to the forum so sorry if I ask a question that has been asked earlier or recently.

Anyway, what game do you find yourself playing on an emulator most often.

For me it would be Target Renegade on Caprice...

I miss my CPC which is packed away with all my other retro consoles

At the moment im working my way through diddy kong racing for the N64, i got one of those usb adaptors that let you use the original controller, the plan is to reduce the amount of use my pikachu n64 gets because i dont want it wearing out!

Juggernaught by CRL.

If they made this in first person 3D, I would be the happiest man on earth.

Hello Dexter,

Do you know I never played Juggernaught before.

I take it it's a great game.

I must give it a try :P

MAME and whatever the current game is on the retroleague (this week it has been Silkworm).

Anyone who hasn't already had a look, go to...

Good friendly game playing fun against likeminded retroheads.

Hey fordie!

"Spindizzy" is glued to my CaPriCe32 at the moment.
Also have it on a real CPC464 before anyone starts pointing at me! :shock:

SMB3 is also on my FCEUltra (NES) at the moment. The save states really help! :)

For anyone who's still pointing at me, I also have a NES with SMB3! :lol:
Also on Mario All Stars on SNES.

Spikey :wink:

Visit http://www.cpczone.net/ download the Amstrad emulater of your choice (Caprice32 is good), do a search for Juggernaught there and download the .dsk file and play away!

Basically, you drive a lorry (8, 12 or 16 tons) around a town, loading it with various commodities (oil, fruit & veg etc) and then unloading it at different warehouses.

That's it - BUT... just play it! The driving and parking of the lorry are just so much fun!!

If you are new to the emulater scene, let me know and I can give you a guide on how to install them.

Being able to save games on old systems is THE most powerful excuse for using emulators over the original machines

Many 8-bit games were almost impossible to complete on the original hardware

For example,I had Colditz on my Speccy - towards the end of the game,there's a bit where you've got to use skill to complete a task - at
full speed,things move so quickly it's difficult to tell they're moving at all!
Using emulation.you've got to reduce speed to about 10% in order to have any chance of completing the task

I just can't get enough of the Metal Slug series on MAME.

I just wish they all had MS5's music! :D

I have 6000 arcade games on a MAME emulater, the last game I played was Knights Of The Round.

I also have 3000 Spectrum games emulated on my PC.

The last game I played on that was R-Type.

I shall have to have another Spectrum session a bit later today...

This week I have been mostly playing 3D Death Chase on't Speccy for the RetroLeague, which has in turn led me to start Auf Wiedersehen Monty again. Usually loads of MAME though.

I'm well gutted now.

I have a leave of absence from the League and I find out you're all playing Deathchase while my backs turned :(

Might have to squeeze in a game or two on the PSP - she'll never know ;)

3D Deathchase is a fantastic game. My favourite Retroleague game yet. This is why retro gaming is so great - uncomplicated, undisputable fun!
