Genesis Plus GX is a Sega multi-system emulator originally for the Nintendo GameCube and Wii, developed by eke-eke. The author claims the emulator has accurate emulation and 100% compatibility with Sega Mega Drive, Mega-CD, Master System, Game Gear, and SG-1000 games. It also has preliminary Pico emulation. The emulator was originally based off Charles MacDonald's Genesis Plus 1.2a. For Mega-CD games, ISO + WAV, BIN + CUE and ISO + OGG formats are supported; ISO + MP3 is not supported.
Mednafen is a portable, utilizing OpenGL and SDL, argument(command-line)-driven multi-system emulator. Mednafen has the ability to remap hotkey functions and virtual system inputs to a keyboard, a joystick, or both simultaneously. Save states are supported, as is real-time game rewinding. Screen snapshots may be taken, in the PNG file format, at the press of a button. Mednafen can record audiovisual movies in the QuickTime file format, with several different lossless codecs supported.
CEN64 is a new Nintendo 64 emulator which aims for perfect emulation bysimulating the hardware inside the Nintendo 64 itself, down to theregister-transfer level (RTL). It is still heavy under development andcurrently does not have any sound emulation.
Being a cycle-accurate emulator, CEN64 has considerably high hardwarerequirements to achieve passable performance when emulating most Nintendo 64titles. However, similar to the higan emulator, the cycle accuracy guarantessvery high compatibility and despite its early development stage, CEN64 alreadyallows one to run several commercial titles without or with only minorglitches.
As a distinctive feature among Nintendo 64 emulators, CEN64 offers emulationsupport for the 64DD external disk drive that was never released outside Japanand even there is considered rare. Thus, CEN64 offers the unique possibilityfor anyone to play any of the rare titles that were exclusively released on the64DD.
Dolphin is an emulator for two recent Nintendo video game consoles: theGameCube and the Wii. It allows PC gamers to enjoy games for these twoconsoles in full HD (1080p) with several enhancements: compatibility with allPC controllers, turbo speed, networked multiplayer, and even more.
Unlike most other open source Atari ST emulators which try to provide a goodenvironment for running GEM applications, Hatari tries to emulate the hardwareof a ST as close as possible so that it is able to run most of the old Atarigames and demos. Because of this, it may be somewhat slower than less accurateemulators.
higan is an emulator for systems from Nintendo (SNES, NES, Gameboy,Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance), Sega (Master System, Game Gear),NEC (PC Engine, SuperGrafx) and Bandai (WonderSwan, WonderSwan Color).It was formerly called bsnes and the SNES emulation is especiallycomplete and polished.
higan strives to provide the most faithful hardware emulation possible.It focuses on accuracy and clean code, rather than speed and specialfeatures. It is meant as a reference emulator to document how the underlyinghardware works. As a result the minimum system requirements are high.
MAME is a hardware emulator: it faithfully reproduces the behavior of manyarcade machines (it is not a simulation). This program is not a game but candirectly, through ROM images, run the complete system of these old arcademachines. These ROMs are subject to copyright and it is in most of the casesillegal to use them if you do not own the arcade machine.
PCSX is an advanced PlayStation (PSX) emulator, which uses a pluginarchitecture to provide full support for all components of the PSX.It has full emulation support for gamepads, videos, sound, memory cards,and other important PSX components, and is able to play many gameswithout problems.
RetroArch is an open source, multi-platform frontend for the libretro API.It can be used as a modular multi emulator system, game engine, media playerand 3D technical demonstration. These features are available throughlibretro cores.
Virtual Jaguar is a cross-platform emulator for Atari's infamousJaguar console, the last video game system to be ever released bythe now defunct company. The Jaguar was marketed as the first64-bit video game system despite the fact that it was actuallya 32-bit system at heart, just the blitter operated in 64-bitmode. The system was a commercial failure and eventually leadto Atari leaving the market for video game systems for good.
This emulator features an intuitive user interface and emulationof all of the major subsystems of the Atari Jaguar console. Thisincludes full GPU and DSP emulation as well as emulation of theAtari Jaguar CD. Most of the commercial Atari games are supported,albeit some of them have some minor glitches when running in theemulator.
VisualBoyAdvance is a Game Boy Advance emulator that works withmany ROMs that are publically available. It features save states(like those that are available in ZSNES), full screen support,joystick support, the all-important 'speedup emulation' key forimpatient gamers, and a lot more.
RetroArch is a free and open-source, cross-platform frontend for emulators, game engines, video games, media players and other applications. It is the reference implementation of the libretro API, designed to be fast, lightweight, portable and without dependencies. It is licensed under the GNU GPLv3. 2b1af7f3a8
