(your SNES battle one was extremely helpful. you're the only reliable source/guide for this stuff around!)

I downloaded one a while ago, and it was really sluggish. Are the emulator and the ROMS better than the ones that were out there, say, eight months ago?

thanks, glad it's appreciated http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/biggrin.gif

I wrote a 'your guide' to psx before, but i'll try to sum it up quickly..

emulator= http://www.epsxe.com

the BIOS used to be athttp://www.geocities.com/epsxe/

but after visiting, it no longer exists, so i'm afraid that you'll have to search for it. It shouldn't be too difficult to find though. just type it into a search engine.

It's possible to download roms, but i haven't found them.
I just use CDs.<font color=black>

Very cool. I just got it and i'm playing Kart 64. The only thing that sucks is that the link to Paper Mario doesn't work.

You downloaded Mario Kart or Paper Mario? Mario Kart works just fine for me (although the control is certainly not the same without an analog stick). The Paper Mario link didn't work.

i was right into N64 emulation back in like 99. i had mario 64 running at 30fps which is pretty much better than it ran on the actual console. i was impressed.

sorry, i was talking about Mario Kart. weird, because i get similar problems in Mario64. it's like i have extra outlining which is obviously not part of the game.

is there any way to do it w/o a 3-d accelerator?

there's a whole bunch of little graphical glitches, you just kinda have to ignore it i guess.

i think a 3d card is on the 'minimum requirements'.

As for the links on that rom page.
All the links work, but just at different times.
If you keep checking, they'll all work.

This is cool, I remember my friend got a N64 emulator on his computer like 2 years ago. I never really tried it myself however now that I have a better video card I think I'll give it a try and see if it works.

is there a segaCD emulator out there???

Andrew_Pakula
02-12-2002, 03:22 PM
Or what about a Sega Genesis one?

I don't recall ever seeing one.

you can get games on that same site..

I use "gens" but I think there are better ones.

I downloaded the Gens one and downloaded a bunch of old games I used to have, works great! Thanks http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif

Ok has anyone gotten the Paper Mario link to work yet? I have never played that game and I feel very bad about that.

02-12-2002, 10:25 PM
i think that paper mario will work eventually, but if you can't wait, I suggest using IRC. http://www.dorokhin.f2s.com/site/gold/irc.html
using a client like 'Mirc'..

yeah, the page wasn't loading for me once.
But this link to it is better.

i've discovered that the SNES rom library on this site is pretty fantastic too..

As for the direct link to zelda2, here ya go:

perfect dark is unusually large, it's about 50 something
