So, games that have batteries for saves... N64, GBA, GBC in my case. I'm worried that my treasured possessions will one day die on me, along with my save data. To this end, I wonder if it'd really worth keeping the hard copies or if I should just go emu... I mean, what's the point in treasuring the things if in 50 years or so the data on them is useless? DS means that GBA & GBC are easy enough to have on a flashcard, but the N64 - that is a whole different ball game. I'm guessing that my only option is PC emulation - there's no cheap backup unit is there (Z64 = £££)? Sadly, I've toyed with Project 64 & 1964: I'm unfortunate enough to have one of those PCs that has a Radeon GFX card that "Direct 3D failed to initialise your HAL device..." blah blah message with P64 that to my knowledge is unfixable. But that's besides the point -I could always get a cheap unit solely for 64 emulation or toy with 1964. But how does PC emulation compare to the real deal? On the plus side I'm thinking that I get crisper picture, better FPS and the US versions as opposed to some of the laggy PAL versions which I have. I also have to find a decent pad with rumble - which is good, given the N64's sticks eventually wear out. I'm interested in what everyone else has to say on this.
