What hardware do you use for emulation

Post by sparky » Tue Dec 06, 2005 7:32 am

Currently do all my emulation on PC, I was an avid user of the GP32 and will be using the GP2x when they release one that actually works.

What about you.

Ditto.

I came very close to ordering GP2, then I read on another forum about the problems.

I have been buying the Midway,Taito,Capcom,Tecmo compilations on Xbox though , for 2 reasons, I like to sit in a comfy armchair when playing and 2 difficulty in tracking down Roms for Mame.

All other emulation 8bit and 16bit on PC, and thats because I can't be arsed to unpack all the old consoles and Computers!

I used to use the Mac for everything, but I've used Power64 about twice in the last year, and no other Mac-based emulators at all for yonks. The PC gets the odd emulator fired up on it if I need to take screen grabs for something, but otherwise that's also unused these days. Instead, I tend to play most emulated stuff on the GBA, and some on the Xbox, when I get the TV to myself.

Mainly my PC, but increasingly my Dreamcast.

Mostly XBox, sometimes PC, and occasionally the GP32.

I use a PC, but I've been tempted by the GP32.

Talking of emulation, does anyone use the Amstrad emulator Caprice?

I haven't used it in so long I can't remember how to run a game.

I've attached image, then typed cat, but can't remember what to do next?

Any takers?

Is that the one where you type:
RUN"Gamename.BIN" (its usually the .bin file that starts the game)

I would hang on till next year - Apparently some of the GP2X's are bugged. Plus the emulators don't seem to be up to standard yet...

Currently I spend most of my time emulating on the PC, but I do have some Dreamcast emulators. The only tiresome thing is when you get a game that crashes the emulator and you have to reboot...
