This ones for all of you out there whose disks are broken, your pockets are deep with lint, your laser wont read, and the motor doesn’t spin as fast. All your base r belong to us.
This is in celebration of my favorite Retro Gaming website EmuParadise 15th birthday and also just honoring all Retro gaming and the Emulation of retro systems and its games.
First of all, I would like to thank the online community for making this possible. All of the open source development is really pushing the envelope and making for better experiences to be had. There are a lot of things that can go wrong with our old gaming systems. Beyond repair? Probably not, but beyond my willingness of time to dedicate to repair? probably for now. lol. This is my thought process for emulation and why it is so common nowadays. As most everyone owns these games and systems anyways it is an oppurtunity to revisit titles on a new frontier and platform.
In order to get into Emulation one must simply be willing to learn how and have access to a computer with their own rights. Be prepared to dedicate some time to reading and trouble shooting. You might also want to have an up to date antivirus. I use Avast. The premium membership offers a sandbox similar to sandboxie.
Grab your system here at emulator-zone . They also have the GPU software and other plugins that may make the game more familiar to you like Controller Plugins. The setups can be difficult coming in with a fresh perspective but its really quite simple. You will also need the system firmware or BIOS which can be found here romcollector
After that you will need games which of course can be found at EmuParadise.me and all of these services are offered for free. As you can see it can be quite easy to be a cool kid nowadays. Thanks for reading 🙂
