Nintendo Emulator recommendations?

10 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone is currently running any Nintendo emulators for the PC/Mac? I've got the itch for some classic NES games and did a little research into emulators. With so many to choose from I was wondering if anyone has some recommendations? Come on children of the 80's....I know your out there! laugh

Cheers.

I used to run nesticle on my pc about eight years ago when I got the Zelda itch- Duck Hunting isn't nearly as fun without that toy gun though...

It seemed to be about the same quality as the real thing- I don't know if there is much room for improvement on those games for an 8-bit system

same here nesticle rocks! nothing better than going back and playing contra and seeing how many times you can beat the game over and over with out dieing smile

I have all the NES, SNES and GENISIS games on my PC. Not all of them converted over very well but a majority are just like the real thing except playing on a keyboard.

Check out some of the online auction or listing sites.

Why not buy the real deal?

Thanks guys. I think I'll give NESticle a whirl. I've got a Nintendo at home that is in great shape....however some of the prices they are offering for the classics are absurd. I've been looking at the USB converter's for the NES controller's which seem to work pretty well for emulators. Ideally I'm going to load the emulator on a laptop and bring it in the boat. Nothing like playing a little Excite Bike waiting for the clicker to go off! laugh

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
