I haven't messed around with it too much, but it seems pretty good to me. I was able to play through Splatterhouse with Ootake. I also used it to test drive some other games like Shock Man and Avenger.

My TG-16/PCE & CD emulator of choice is TurboEngine. It's based off the same code as Kega Fusion, the interface is near similar, and it runs cards and CDs very well.

Dega (SMS) is worth trying just for the enhanced PSG option (though it's not perfect for every game, sometimes the bass becomes the lead etc.)

We should have a list of consoles that can emulate other consoles, i know for sure im going to put some CFW on a PS3 once sony stops supporting PSN on it.

Right now my Wii is my ultimate console for emulating other consoles, but it can only go as far as N64/PS1/Saturn, and that emulation is horrible, but works great for anything 4th generation and under.

This is excluding handhelds, but the Wii emulates the GBA great.

Saturn emulation (SSF) has been good since early 2006 (0.08 version) and is now pretty much perfection (0.12 last time i checked).

I play my original discs through the emulator, and all of the games in my collection are practically flawless. It doesn't even need BIOS to function. It's a perfect alternative, as far as i'm concerned. And it's leagues above N64 emulation, so i don't quite know why anyone would think that the emulation isn't good enough.

NullDC 1.0.4 and its revisions is a fantastic Dreamcast emulator aswell. I've thrown countless well known and obscure games and they worked perfectly fine to completion, with a minimal amount of graphical issues that i barely encountered.

Nintendo 64 – Project64 (while some games still have issues, it plays most games well enough for most people).

I'm in this boat. The games that I want to play are either slow or have issues.

I hadn't heard of this emulator before. I think I'll use it on my XBMC box and see if it plays nicely.

I've messed with it a bit and it seems pretty good. At first I thought it was shit, but when I used a BIOS it ran much better. A BIOS may not be required, but it does help a lot with the performance.

And it's leagues above N64 emulation

Damn straight.

In terms of Genesis emulation, please do not overlook Gens.

I personally prefer KEGA Fusion, but I think Gens has an easy-to-use interface for beginners.

Anyone more up to date on emulation than I am care to chime in with updates?

I know we have PS3, Wiiu, and 3ds emulation now but have not used them.

Wow, go check out my most recent suggestion from this morning in the "Booting Up Content" thread. Goes hand and hand with this thread I didn't know existed.

I think "The State of 3DS Emulation in 2017" would be a great article.

I recently saw this thread on Atari Age regarding WiiU emulation. I did not know this was even a thing! Might be of interest. Folks are running Zelda Breath of the Wild. Need a beasty PC rig though.

KEGA is still incredible, I'm still on 3.63 and maybe there's newer releases
snes9x 1.54
gambatte_qt_win32-r571 for GB/GBC
fceux-2.2.2-win32 for NES

That's what I'm running lately in my emulation binge.

Any suggestions on PCE/CD emulators?

I get a bit too lazy on post 16bit emulation and since that stuff is more widely available I'd rather just still stick to the hardware, unless it's stuff we never got in the US or something.
