Emulator Help Thread


This thread is loosely based off of the ZSNES help thread, I'm just improving on it a bit.
Ask any questions regrading any emulators.
Along with that, here is a list of a few of the more well-known Emulators and their sites that may also help you with what you need.

Note: I'll update this list as time goes on. If you feel I missed anything, feel free to post a link to it and I'll update this list. Just please make sure that the site DOES NOT contain any links to a ROM.

FCE Ultra X - All the major FCE Ultra offshoots merged together. Recommended for Tool Assisted Speedrunning.
NEStopia - A easy to use, customisable emulator that supports just about everything. Recommended!
NESticle - NOT recommended, as it is very very old and outdated. If you're using this, use one of the emulators above!

SNES
ZSNES - Probably the most popular emulator.
SNES9x - Not quite as popular, but still useful. Sound emulation's iffy with some games, though.
SNESGT - A Japanese emulator in English. Has good sound emulation!
bSNES - Extremely accurate to the original machine, so system requirements are very high. Crappy computers need not apply!

N64
Project64 - The most popular emulator. Development has stagnated and the latest version is only available to donators or people who are very good at finding things.
Mupen64 - Development has stopped, and the latest spinoff (Mupen64plus) is current OSX/Linux only, but this might be useful to someone.

Next-Gen
Dolphin - A Gamecube AND Wii emulator? That WORKS? It's a Christmas Miracle!

Portables
VisualBoyAdvance-M - THE GBA emulator.
NO$GBA - A great emulator for GBA and DS.

Layout by LDA during C3.
I have some.

Gens for the Genesis, from tasvideos.org

Visual Boy Advance v21 for the GBA, also from tasvideos.org

Project 64</a> at http://www.pj64-emu.com/

This is a thing that's happening, now. Achievements in old video games.
Thank you for the layout, Erik557.
Man, I wish this would've worked. Oh well.
If not for respect, but dramatic effect, take on the face of Guy Fawkes.
I want to see the No$ emulators for GBA and DS (yes, both).

That works. :P Gives me less to do. ^_^

No probs man.

If I get bored I might do a list of emulators for the DS, or possibly the Wii. I can't really do a PSP emulator list since I don't have one, let alone a homebrew-capable one.

My Hacks:

I'm trying to save an SPC file to listen to from a boss. I'm using ZSNES 1.42, and the game is Ninja Warriors. When I listen to it, it doesn't work. It's either blank, or half a second of noise. Can someone answer? I have a savestate before entering that area, in case anybody just wants to do it themselves.

I have SNES9x v1.43, and i tried to Load a hack, and It came up with

"???" [bad checksum] loROM, Corrupt,
Type: ROM+RAM+S=DD1, Mode: ac, TV:
PAL, S=RAM: Corrupt, ROMId: G Compan
y: F8 CRC32: F972D038

Excuse the Noobishness, but i am just lost.

Let me guess, you tried to load the IPS patch?

Use Lunar IPS to patch it to a clean rom. Test your rom here.

World Community Grid: Thread | Team
 
OK. got that. Once again, excuse me, so in order to play the hacks on the emulator, i have to make the hack seem identical to the Original ROM with the Patch? in That case, do i need the Original ROM?
BLAH BLAH BLAH
What? You take a clean rom, use Lunar IPS, patch it to the clean rom, and play that patched rom. If your rom is not clean get a new one. Don't ask for one, we are not allowed. It's illegal.

Look at this 8 year-old layout that I should probably update.

On ZSNES, when you make save states can't they be deleted? isn't that z something file?
They can be deleted. They're .zst or .zs# (with the pound sign being replaced by a number). I don't know about states above 9, though, since I don't increment my saves.

This is a thing that's happening, now. Achievements in old video games.
Thank you for the layout, Erik557.
Man, I wish this would've worked. Oh well.

how can i switch a state without letting the select state window popping up?i'm using ZSNES.
1.42 - Misc., Game Keys, State Select
1.51 - Config, Saves

Easy. Go to CONFIG > SAVES and where it says STATE SHORTCUTS and ST0, ST1, ST2, etc., replace those with the key you want to use fore saveslot 1, 2, etc. I recommed using the keys 1 - 0 and for the ST+ and ST-, use - and =. Although you might be mixed up. And there you go.

Is there a decent emulator for the virtual boy?
<-An excellent spritesheet site

I am now willing to take ExGFX requests

(I'm making changes so I don't really know what exactly it is at)
