Who uses them and which ones?

 

What games are playing with your emulator of choice?

 

Do you use a controller and if so which one?

 

If you can please try include some links because google is hard :)

Wii/Gamecube - http://dolphin-emu.org I use a xbox 360 controller or a ps4 controller.    Tons and tons of games to play (mariocart, mario party, smash)

PS2-  https://pcsx2.net a xbox 360 or ps4 controller. Tons and tons of games as well.  all the ps2 classics (ATV offroad fury, Ratchet & clank, time splitters)

 

https://www.emuparadise.me has a great selection of information on emulators/games.

I've experimented with a bunch over the past couple year, Gameboy, SNES, but the most recent one I've found is insane.

It's called cemu, emulates the Wii U https://www.reddit.com/r/cemu/

It's really awesome when you get it working, but it is new so there's a lot of bugs and games that just straight up don't work, your best bet is to find a very detailed Youtube video on setting it up because you'll need the emulator and an app called "Wii U USB Helper" It's worth it in the end lol

Good luck!

So glad someone started this topic, I have been in the market for some of these emulators and more specifically emulators that could be ran off of a raspberry pi/andruino set up and just haven't done the research to know what's good and what isn't. 

 

My dream is to build an arcade cabinet for my shop that runs on andruino/pi that's capable of running all the old arcade games like galaga, pacman, etc with 0 maintenance over time.

 

Pretty sure someone out there has some pi experience they'd be willing to sprinkle here too lol

Salty, That would be amazing. 

 

The main reason I am looking into it is to introduce my daughters to gaming in the same way I was. I want them to experience what games were when I was a kid. Games were so much fun then and less complicated. Now there are so many variables in gaming that one can get overwhelmed and lose interest very fast. I want them to appreciate them for the fun and not all the fluff.

You should chat with M2THE49 about that - he did that already

I'm not up to date on the latest enulators, but I can do the old school stuff. I have built tools and stuff to manage all the emulators and ROMs that I use. 

 

Let me know if you have any need. I can supply ROMs or guidance for any of the systems in the image. These are my complete ROM sets.

In regard to the questions:

1.) All of them. As many as I can. I generally do oilder stuff though because I enjoy the nostalgia. 

2.) Rolls into 1.

3.) Generic logitech that mirrors the buttons form factor of SNES/Playstation. (https://www.amazon.c...0/dp/B003VAHYQY)

 

@SaltySam - A self-contained cabinet has been on my to-do list for a ridiculous amount of time, but I suck at building things out of wood. It will probably never come to fruition, but I'd be more than happy to help you with your quest. :)

I use CEMU. someone already linked the reddit. Pretty much my favorite emulator. I've tried a few others mostly for SNES and gameboy, but cemu is by far the best.
