    I never played any of these games but am looking to start emulating some. Do either of these emulators have a strong edge on the other?

    It depends on the games you're looking to play. Wii Engine has the edge with reguards CD game support, but Hugo is much better when it comes to standard HuCard games due to superior sound emulation. On Wii Engine, it seems to struggle to play multiple sounds at once.

    Apart from a much nicer gui on hugo - wiiengine (IMO) is far superior in emaultion for both regular games and also cd games.

    HugoGX has original video resolution support, which Wii Engine doesn't (I like this on Wii emulators, makes really feel like the old thing) , better interface and generally more options.

    Regarding Hu-Cart compatibility, it seems Wii Engine runs some games that Hugo doesn't... (that's said, from the code, Wii Engine seems also to be based on Hugo original code, with a few enhancements and a lot of shared code). I didn't really noticed any difference in sound emulation.

    However, the best thing about Wii Engine is CD audio tracks support (which is disabled in HugoGX)

    I personally prefer Hugo, just plays a lot better, and I am not really bothered about cd support

    I think both should be updated, there are some games for TurboGrafix-16 I'd like to try out 1st.

    ???

    They would need to be updated if those games did not work, otherwise, I don't see the point.
    WHat's preventing you from testing them ?

    @Jacobeian:

    Some of the games just won't work: Rondo of Blood (Castlevania), it's a pain in the arse to try to find TG-16 games . . .

    Rondo of Blood is a CD game, it works under Hu-go (well, without CD tracks support) and perfectly under WiiEngine, read the later's documentation again to know how to setup iso/ogg files

    i wonder when these things will be updated, because all the other emus get updates every other. When the last tg16 update was what sometime last year.

    by the other emus you are meaning nintendo emus (snes/nes/vba), others are not updated very often anyway
    those are mostly GUI updates but yes tantric is very active... like others before him were also very active at some time.
    Remember this is homebrew development, not a full time paid job and people eventually lose motivation or have other things more interesting and important to deal with than coding all night long [​IMG]

    I'd say 99% of CD games work perfect on wiiengine already (same goes for all the regular PCE games I've tried on it too)... the only thing its missing is a fancy GUI - but I'm already v happy with what we have ie: a fully functioning full speed emulator (Full CD and mp3/ogg support, 4-player multiplayer, loading games from usb, screenshots etc etc).

    Wiiengine has come to a halt as Hermes has moved on to bigger and better things and I'd personally much rather see eke-eke finish off his genplus and eventually (well hopefully!) add sega cd support seeing as its a system we still don't have running on the wii yet.

    How do you get the music to play in the cd games? and do super cd games work, because it's telling me i have the wrong system file.

    eke-eke can't just add cd support.......it's not that easy..... it's a complete different machine, you need to run a genesis emulator + a sega cd emulator at the same time to achieve that, it's a lot of work and probably won't ever come unless someone port gens or something like that.

    I appreciate that (thats why I said 'hopefully' [​IMG]). Sega CD is definitely do-able though - whether its eke-eke that cracks it or even another talented coder in time. If the psp can play full speed genesis games and a sega-cd games (picodrive) then I'm sure the wii will in time too. [​IMG]
