Re: What Emulators Are You Using - 2018?

Checking out bsnes v.075 right now since Super Mario All-Stars seems terrible in snes9x.

So far I'm digging it. Which video driver do you guys prefer? It defaults to Direct3D and I can't really see a difference when I change it, but there's also no confirmation so I don't know if it's even changing? (it's easy to see the changes in snes9x)

Smooth Video, turned that off right away and looks better. Not really sure what Synchronize Video and Synchronize Audio are about.

There is an interesting maintained fork of bsnes called bsnes-classic. Runs nicer than higan, but has the benefits of it.

Here's my list of what I currently used on pc:

Mesen - NES/FC - emulator that enables hdpack (custom highres) on NES:

sample:

Mega Man(first one)

..it is also known to passes more test ROMs than any other emulator currently available. Great options that includes save states, online play, cheats, movies, rewinding, overclocking, remove sprite limit, custom palettes, stereo effects, and much more. 8)

Phoenix Project - 3DO & Jaguar - probably the best 3DO emulator i've used (better than FreeDo imo). Jaguar emulators compatibility is also high. Also support Colecovision, SG-100.

Kega Fusion - Genesis/32x/CD, etc - Indeed, the best Sega console emulator out there.

TeknoParrot - Arcade - able to play select Arcade games; mostly racing, shmp, fighting games. (ex. Samurai Showdown - Edge of Destiny, Intital D Arcade Stage 6, Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, Raiden III/IV, etc)

MAME32UI - Arcade - the version I used.

ePSXe - PS1 - love the options on this emulator, still best out there.

PPSSPP - PSP - when I want to play PSP game on a bigger screen :mrgreen: still improving

Project64 64DD - N64/N64DD - because I can play N64 and N64DD games on PC :wink:

mGBA - GBA - As of yet, it's the most complete GBA emulation effort.

Citra - 3DS - still WIP; but I like what I can play so far.

Dolphin - Wii/Gamecube - :)

Is Citra finally to a level that really has some good support? I haven't checked on it in a year. I know it had been low compatibility and pretty slow even on i7 type hardware. Also I don't recall if it needed a BIOS download or if it just ran around that internally.

MGBA I had never heard of before, that I'd like to try as that old vgba thing that died years ago had an -X fork that was good but that went dead too. Marat with this emulator is pretty solid, but he's more general I think with things not that that is a bad thing but it took the guy like 15 years to actually bother re-writing sound core for his older Nintendo emulators which sounded awful and now are great.

You and me both. My old 27' Trinitron was great when I found it, but now I want to scale down to something that fits on a bookshelf.


Better be a deep bookshelf. Those guys are long. :lol:

@seven, great list.

Still far from the level unfortunately, but the progress is still active. So far the game I'm enjoying that is fully emulated is Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden. Runs really well, close to 99%. Others I've tried have graphics and sounds glitches, but playable to an extent.

VBA used to be my go to for GBA emulator but since I discovered mGBA, it is far much better. Though it is well noted; mGBA is solely for GBA emulation only. While VBA also supports GB and GBC.

I wouldn't be so certain of that. After I posted that I did download MGBA and I was curious and tried to fire up a GBC game, it booted. I then checked the menu, it has a spot for adding your own legit BIOS, has 3 spots for it GB, GBC and GBA listed.

Whatever this guy was up to, he did it well and was a completionist as far as any kind of potentially useful feature it seems as there's a lot going on here.

Your right! it does support it (went under my radar) :lol: but the compatibility is not great for gb, gbc as posted on the author website. Hopefully it will improve overtime.

oxbox emulation is coming along well. Cxbx Reloaded now runs some games close to fullspeed:
