video game emulation
I was just wondering what any of you had to say about video game emulation. I think emulation is fun.
Coding an emulator is not illegal. Playing your own dumped software through the emulator is also ( obviously ) not illegal. I believe that the prupose of emulation is concrete in it's morality. Preserve the hardware VIA pc to prolong the life of a classic game that cannot be duplicated. Afterall, Pac Man was Pac Man - not Quake.
Unfortunately ( for the legal side ), when everybody sees how the format goes, they hop on google and the warez games begin.
P.S. I am aware of the previous post(s) about emulation - they weren't that long :(.
mame is the best thing since shortbread...
I agree. You kind of just get lost in that neighborhood....
ever try Bubble Bobble? or Magical Drop?
Ahh, the classics. No. :D
I will though, on an "unheard" recommendation from yourself. :)
I usually play anything Street Fighter either through Final Burn Alpha or MAME ( personal sf fav being Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior ). On the other hand, set me up with a nice console emulator and some mega man titles and I'm good to go. If you want to get into a favorite game / emulator war, I'm game.
P.S. Mega Man owns ( 46 games )
on the zsnes(super nintendo emulator) i play some final fantasy some crono trigger, arkanoid, Dr. Mario, Bust A Move(bubble Bobbles american title), the legend of zelda, the Lufia series, rampart, shadow run, super bomberman, and one of my favs FaceBall. all kinds of stuff!
well unfortunatly its 2:00 am here i need sleep eventually so the war must wait, but i'll get ya started!
ZSNES IS THE BEST EMULATOR EVAR!!!!
MAGICAL DROP 2 IS THE BEST GAME EVAR!! ADMIT IT!!
AKARI WARRIORS IS AWESOME!!!!
FACEBALL IS DA COOLEST!!
Sreet Fighter 2 BITES THE BIG ONE!!(actually i had a great many blisters from this game, i probably spent half my life on it)
MEGA MAN SUCKS!!!!
>P.S. Mega Man owns ( 46 games )
dear lord i had no clue it was that many!
::edit:: woo boy im sorry for the lame.. i'll do better tomorrow
I sense sarcasm....?
RockNes X - It requires Direct X 8 or greater. I think it's the best emulator though. It' unfortunate that for an NES emulator it requires so much power, then again it's worth it. "Full-screen" scanlines. :d
ZNES is my pick too.
Final Burn Alpha for CPS, MAME for everything.
Games on all systems:
me sarcastic? never? nah...
um i don't know if i could war with you, you play Street Fighter how off can you be?
as for megaman maybe i just never played um enough(probably got a bad one er something), i never could stand um...
Castlevania, man i played that to death.
you like Action Adventure titles me thinks?
::Edit:: if i can get one ill try some megaman again, see what i think now!
I like action titles. Zelda 2, Castlevania 2, and Legacy Of The Wizard / Dragon Slayer 4 is as far as I'll go RPG. I don't mind arkanoid, tetris, "i'm bored" type games though.
P.S. Does your grammar always slip when you're tired? :)
>P.S. Does your grammar always slip when you're tired?
for the most part yes, hehe. along with many other more neccessary functionality...such as typing skills, this must have take 5+ minutes to write...
>Legacy Of The Wizard / Dragon Slayer 4 is as far as I'll go RPG
whats wrong wiht RPG's?
::edit:: i see what you mean...reading my own posts...
::edit2:: do i sound like im speaking engrish or what
> ::Edit:: if i can get one ill try some megaman again, see what i think now!
I have the original 6 cartridges for the NES & the system. I've heard and read that some of those go for crazy amounts at ebay. Mega Man also has some "weird" hacks ( as does mario ).
>I have the original 6 cartridges for the NES & the system.
wow! i have a 10+ year old super nintendo and a duct taped up street fighter 2 cartridge that still works!!plus about 6 other titles!
what? its not that bad!
