Favorite Android Emulators!?
« on: January 17, 2016, 06:08:21 pm »
So over the past five months I've had more experience with portable Android emulators for my Sony Tablet S. I really like the .emu Free series.

NES: NES.emu Free
Genesis: MD.emu Free
GBA: GBA.emu Free
GB/GBC: GBC.emu Free
Arcade: MAME4droid / MAME4droid 0.139
DOS: aDosbox
N64: Mupen64 Plus AE
Game Gear: Gearoid
Turbografx 16: PCE.emu Free
SNES: Snes9x EX+
Playstation: psx4droid
MSX: MSX.emu Free
Neo Geo Pocket: NGP.emu

What are your favorites? What about Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, or Sega Master System? Let us know in this thread.

I run the following on my phone:

Arcade (General): MAME4droid 1.5.2
Arcade (CPS-2): MAME4droid Reloaded 1.2.1
Atari 2600: 2600.emu 1.5.14
Atari Lynx: aLynx 1.032
Colecovision: MSX.emu Free 1.5.13
FDS: NES.emu Free 1.5.13
Gameboy Advance: MyBoy! 1.6.0
Gameboy(Color): GBC.emu Free 1.5.13
Game Gear: Nostalgia.GG Pro 1.12.2
Genesis: MD.emu 1.5.12
Master System: MD.emu 1.5.12
Macintosh: Mini vMac 1.1.0
MSX: MSX.emu Free 1.5.13
Playstation: ePSXe 1.9.33
N64: Mupen64 Plus AE 2.4.3
NES: NES.emu Free 1.5.13
Neo Geo Pocket(Color): NGP.emu Free 1.5.13
PC Engine(CD): PCE.emu Free 1.5.13
SNES: Snes9x EX 1.5.18
Wonderswan(Color): WonderDroid 1.9

Even overclocking my CPU +600MHz, it's not fast enough to run PSP, DC, Saturn, etc emulators (It's a now ancient single core Qualcomm Scorpion paired to an Adreno 203 GPU).

The best PSX emulator is either Mednafen's core via the wonders of Retroarch, the PCSXwhateverthefucktheycallthatversionthatletsyoumakethegameslesswobby version via the same wonders, or ePSXe.

So far, I've stuck with Retroarch on my Shield TV system.

Ive got a hideously underpowered plt9606G Proscan tablet but somehow ppsspp does in fact run on it up  to a point,  I have my doubts about commercial games but the cave story hombrew runs smooth as butter at least.

I like Robert Broglia's ".emu" series. I use those for Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Gameboy, GB Advance, and Genesis/Master System. They run great, have a lot of options, and I like having the same interface for most of my emulators. for Game Gear, DraStic for DS, and ePSXe for PS1.

As for N64, I have N64oid and Mupen 64 Plus AE. They each have their strengths and weaknesses, but there doesn't seem to be much progress on the N64 front... If anyone knows of something better, I'd love to hear about it.
