I've got a current USA set of GC images but no GC to play them on yet. I'll give this a go and report back with how I get on.

Lol, does it still only play two game perfectly or did they work on some other 2D games?

Anyone know where PS2 and XBOX emulation is at this point, like which one out of the three is the best atm?

I gave it a quick go and at first I didn't think it was working ... then I realised it was play at about 1/16 of the real speed. Veeeeeeery slow. I'm gonna read more about it today and see if I can get it to speed up a bit. I don't actually want it for seamless playing per say, I just want to have a look at some of the odder games and see if they've worth burning.

How big is the US set? Must be pretty sizable...

Hi,
I got it from www.eggmansworld.com just before he closed everything down. It came on 119 DVDs and covers pretty much every NGC USA release. On disc 119 are a few games that haven't even be released yet .. so as of now, I'm pretty sure its a complete USA set.. I doubt there will be many more NGC games to come but I'll be sure to grab them if they do :)

What's your setup? I think anything but a quad core and dual 8800s will play it pretty slow. :?

I gave this a try a month or so ago with Twilight Princess - was only able to run it at like .05 frames per second. 100% CPU usage on my AMD 3400+. 1.5GB RAM and a Radeon X800 256MB video card to.

One of the other emulators - I forget the name - actually ran the game at what seemed to be full speed. Only problem is it was in black and white and wouldn't render anything that was 3-d!

Anyone know where PS2 and XBOX emulation is at this point, like which one out of the three is the best atm?


My understanding is there are only one or two Xbox emulators and both projects are dead. One plays only Halo and the other Turok or something. Considering the Xbox basicaly is a PC one would think the emulation would be a bit easier.

The PS2 emulator I've used is PCSX2 - probably better then any Gamecube emulator but it still has a ways to go. A few games do work flawlessy I think. It is still being developed last time I check.
