A general topic about emulation.Ideas for sub-topics: ROMhacks, Ethics, Technical support/recommended emulators.NOTE: One of the rules of the board is "no warez." This means no linking to ROMs in the thread. Google is your friend. My Emulation
-I emulate NES/SNES/GB/GBC/GBA games on my jailbroken iPhone, using NES.EMU, SNES9x EX, GBC.EMU and gpsPhone, respectfully. (http://www.explusalpha.com/home
- first three emulators, really good IMO. I'd recommend GBA.emu also, but it doesn't seem to work on my device.)
-Some of my favorite games to play on mobile are the Pokémon series (right now, I'm enjoying the ROMhack, Yet Another Fire Red Hack
, I also enjoy the official pinball spinoffs), Advance Wars 1 and 2, Earthbound, and some of the original Zelda games.
-On a PC, I run Dolphin (http://www.dolphin-emulator.com/
) for Gamecube games.
-Some of my favorite games I've emulated so far on PC are Kirby Air Ride, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Mario Kart Double Dash.Ethics
I consider it ethically OK to emulate in the cases of:
a.) The games weren't localized in your country
b.) The games aren't being sold anymore, or are extremely hard to find
c.) ROMhacks (much more difficult otherwise)
d.) Restrictions of any kind block you from using the original console
So, how about everyone else? Do you emulate? How, and with what? Do you play ROMhacks? Got recommendations of old games to play? What's your view on emulation ethics?
