    Well, since the old sticky topic hasn't been updated for 2 years now, I decided to make a new one. I will only list the latest versions of the best emulators for each console, with a link to their FileTrip download page (or, if there is no FileTrip download, I will for now post a link to the author's site, in time I will change all links to FileTrip though). I won't post direct links, because sometimes there's useful info on the page itself too. If you notice I forgot about an emulator, feel free to send me a PM about it or post about it in this topic. All emulators should work on every flashcart. Installation instructions are included in the files.

    So, here's the list:

    Amstrad - CPC

    CrocoDS

    Apple 2 DS

    Apple Macintosh

    Yeah, I said I would only list the best emulators, not all of them, because that is IMHO useless.

    I wasn't too sure on that as you did say "So, here's the list of every possible emulator for the DS there is:" in the thread but "Best" in the title [IMG]

    Er, well, I don't need anything of what you just suggested, because they're games, and this is a topic for all emulators on the DS.

    These are individual emlators of arcade games from Mame! They are individually emulated to get the best quality on DS.

    Marca DS is same but not individual.

    Yeah, but it still comes down to basically the same: it's only one game each, instead of an emulator that can run all games.

    The point of an emulator is that it allows all (or at least most) games of a console to be played. The things you posted are, again, not really emulators in the most commonly used sense of the word, because they only allow for one single game to be played. Nothing more.

    An arcade machine contains usually only one game.
    There are also emulators of calculator without game.
    Your definition of 'emulator' is strange.

    I'm with you...

    The word 'Emulation' doesn't just apply to video games systems, it basically means, 'mimic' so the emulators of the single game arcade boards are emulators because they emulate a specific set of hardware.

    A person who wants to be like someone else so badly that they copy their dress sense and mannerisms can also be called an emulator, in the traditional sense though...

    EDIT: I forgot the actual reason for replying !.. It was to say thank you for updating the list of emulators. It needed doing! [IMG]

    Well, I'm still not going to add them, as no one is going to use them anyway (and I think you can play those games with other emulators as well, so there really is no point to it).
