I'm looking for an emulator that emulates N64, Dreamcast, PS and other etc.:KS

Something like mess or mame would be useful for me but something which is a bit more powerful which will run newer system roms:confused:

Or even a package that installs all of the useful emulators.:)

Thanks in advance!!

At the moment (according to apt-cache) there is no such package. It would be a little tricky for ps support because you have to get a BIOS rom and that is in 'gray area' of the law to distribute.

You could always install all packages separately or even make such GUI yourself using other emulators as backend, and you would only have to write the GUI ; ).

Try a google search with "linux play station emulator". Do the same for the rest you want.

I you open System-->Administration-->Synaptic Package Manager and search for mame you will several emulators. Make sure you have all the repostitories select in System-->Administration-->Software Sources.
