    Best Emulators For Ubuntu.

    Hi, first time posting so apologies if this is the wrong forum. Myself and a friend have decided to build a mini ITX PC into a Mega Drive casing with the intention of using it as an emulator box (pics when it's finished). It's at the point where all the major components are installed but we need to find the emulators themselves so does anyone have (or has a link to) a list of the best emulators on Ubuntu for Mega Drive, SNES etc?

    "Gens/GS" is a Mega Drive emulator that works in 32-bit but not 64-bit.

    Re: Best Emulators For Ubuntu.

    There are many great Emulators that run natively on Linux but it's hard to find them all If you don't know the Names. So I will make a List for you because I can .

    Nintendo Entertainment System: FakeNES, halfnes

    Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Zsnes, bsnes

    Nintendo 64: mupen64plus

    Gamecube and Wii: Dolphin

    Game Boy Color/Advance: VBA-M

    Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear: Osmose

    Sega Genesis: Kega Fusion, Gens/GS

    Playstation: PCSX-R

    You can find them either in the Repos, PPA's or on the Emulator Website. If you want to know some Emulators for other Systems just let me know

    pcsxr is a much better native choice on linux. epsxe linux version is old. There are several thread on the forum reporting better success running the windows version under wine.

    I suggest hooking an Xbox controller up to the machine to play your games

    Fusion is amazingly awesome for Sega Megadrive/Genesis stuff. I believe it also does Master System but I don't know if I ever tested it.

    If you want retro computer emulation too, UAE works well for Amiga but can be a bit hardware intensive. Vice is outstanding for C64 and earlier. It took a bit of fussing around to get it running though.
