Emulator Updates
Posted by Niphoet @ Fri, 07 May 2010 | Message Boards

As MasJ menioned a few days ago, I'm going to be providing weekly updates on emulators. I will only be posting emulators for ROMs/Games that are hosted on EP. I'll make some personal recommendations in my posts, so please feel free to do the same in the comments. If I miss any new/updated emulators, please leave me a message in the comments and I'll make sure to include them in the next update.

Soon we will be updating the emulator files hosted on the site, but for now I will link to the developer's website. This will give people a chance to download the emulators for their preferred OS/platform, as well as read more details. Now for the emulators:

NES: MacFCEU has been updated to version 0.6.3 (Mac).

Amiga: WinUAE has been updated to version 2.1.0 (Win).

PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16: Ootake (English translation) has been updated to version 2.3.9 (Win).

Atari 2600: Stella has been updated to version 3.1.2 (Win/Mac/Linux/others).

Nintendo DS: iDeaS has been updated to version (Win/Linux).

ZX Spectrum: Speccy has been updated to version 1.7 (Win/Linux/others). Sinclairean has been updated to B10 rev. B (Win/Linux).

ScummVM has been updated to version 1.1.1. This has to be one of my all-time favorites, recreating my all-time favorite genre of computer games: 1990's adventure games. Originally developed for the LucasArts adventure games (Manian Mansion, Monkey Island, etc.), they have since expanded the compatibility to dozens of other 1990's era games. Check out the site for a list of compatible games and some more info. (Oh, and before someone makes the wise comment, this isn't strictly an emulator, but multi-game engine recreation software.)

Another system I want to mention is the TI-99/4A (Wikipedia link). This was the first computer I ever used. Classic99 is a wonderful TI-99/4A emulator that has many of the popular games for the system integrated. Most are clones of other popular games from the day, but still fun to play around with.

In closing, there are 2 other emulators I want to mention. When I am looking for an emulator, I want one that emulates the original system as accurately as possible. bsnes (Super Nintendo) and Regen (Sega Megadrive/Genesis, Master System/Game Gear/SC-1000/SC-3000) are wonderful examples. They each require a little higher-end specs to run than some of their counterparts, but the end result it well worth it. Check them out and see what you think.

I'd like to thank MasJ for the chance to provide these updates and I welcome any feedback. Have a good weekend, everyone!
