Win a PS4 Pro God of War Bundle
We're having a birthday sweepstakes! EmuParadise turns 18 today, March 27th 2018. Since this is our 18th birthday we thought we should make our prizes ahem... a little more mature.
We received over 40,000 entries for this competition. Thank you for participating and making it so much fun! We've conducted a random draw and selected the winners. So without further ado, here they are:
Grand Prize - PS4 Pro 1TB God of War Bundle - szunyzoli99
2nd Prize - 18 months of EP Premium - MrSmart
3rd Prize - 12 months of EP Premium - VenomRush1997
We'll be in touch with the winners shortly to get their details and send them their prizes. Thanks again for making this so much fun and supporting EmuParadise. We couldn't have made it for 18 years without you.
As always with EmuParadise we are following our tradition of having the competition open to our users WORLDWIDE. We will ship the PS4 Pro Bundle to you anywhere in the world, so everyone is welcome to enter!
How to enter
There are two steps to a valid entry.
Submit at least one description, screenshot, or video to a game page.
Make a post on social media about your entry. You need to either post publicly to your Facebook profile OR tweet about the competition. We have some useful links below that you can use to share to facebook or tweet out your entry. In general, your post should be public (so that we can see it), it should include a link to this page, and it should mention the prizes.
You *must* complete Step 2 for your entry to be valid. Please note, that you ONLY need to do Step 2 once. So, if you submit 50 screenshots, you only need to make a single social media post for all your entries to be valid. But we will check for Step 2, so make sure you do it right!
For each category of submission you get a different number of entries:
Think of each entry as a lottery ticket. Every entry you get increases your chances of winning. So if we get 200 total entries but you have 50 of them then you have a 25% chance of winning! Makes sense? Great!
So once you've submitted some media, please tweet about it or post to your facebook timeline. Remember to mark your facebook post as public.
That's all, we like to keep it simple. If you have any questions, please ask in the comments. Oh and most importantly, HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY EMUPARADISE :)
Thank you all for supporting us and our community for so many years. It is a matter of great pride to run this site for so many years and we could not have done it without you.
Introducing our new emulators section!
This has been in the works for a long time and finally, I'm very happy to introduce our brand new emulators section. We always had the goal of presenting emulators with all their different versions and add-ons on the site. But the way our emulators section was organised didn't help towards this. So we took into account what would help you the most in your journey to emulate specific games and redid our entire emulator section.
Every emulator is now unified under a single page. All version numbers are available on the same page with the latest one being presented up front. Furthermore, the emulator pages include helpful descriptions, a link to the project homepage, screenshots, videos and more. In some cases there are links to BIOS files that are often necessary, add-ons and plugins, etc.
Going forward, this will make it easier for us to add new emulators, recommend the best ones for certain cases, and more. To see all this, and more, head to our emulators section.
Games now have videos available
We've just launched some great new functionality for our game information pages. Now, you can submit game videos for your favourite video game titles. What's more, you'll earn 10 EP Points for each submission which can then be redeemed for various goodies.
All you need to do is login with your EPForums account and then hit the Add Video button on any game information page. We accept video URLs from Youtube.
Once you've submitted your video, we'll approve it within 24-48 hours and you'll get 10 EP Points for it. Also, if you notice anything out of order, please hit the report button so that we can review any incorrect submission that might have gone through our moderation system.
We accept trailers, short gameplay videos, short reviews, and more. Looking forward to watching all your submissions!

MAME Section Updated to 0.184
Our MAME ROMs section was at 0.164 for a while so it was definitely time for an update. MAME 0.184 just came out a few days ago. The biggest change however is that we've now moved from split MAME sets to non-merged MAME sets. What does that mean?
Well, to put it simply, you no longer need to get a parent ROM for any MAME title that you download. All you need to do is get the rom and everything (parent roms, bios files, etc.) will be included in the file! The only exception to this of course are CHDs. If you need a CHD for a particular game then you'll need to get that separately since those can run to several gigabytes in size.
However, most of our MAME ROMs will now be directly playable with a single download. So go right ahead, fire up the new MAME and enjoy some arcade classics without any additional complications!
