Can someone tell me if the GBA emu by Fast Emulator (My Boy!) will work well with 'Pokemon Emerald' and 'Castlevania Aria Of Sorrow'? Been looking for a stable GBA emu.
Yes both my boy and gba.emu will

I wish Unreal Tournament GOTY Addition would be ported to Android. Quake 3 and some other mod versions play smooth, so should pay great on newer devices.

Found a lesser known Commodore 64 emulator for the Android called AnVICE. This one requires a C64 ROM file in order to work, and also a drive ROM for disk drive emulation. But from what I've read, other users think it's a better C64 emulator than both VICE and Frodo, although maybe a bit harder to use.

Most of these emus worked amazing even on my Nexus one.

The high end phones are more for say

N64
PS1 with open gl
NDS
Dreamcast
Sega saturn

We shouls hopefully see improvments in the above emus over the course of a year.

A phone with the upcoming A15 arm cores will be best

All,

I will have an update for the main post in a week or two.

Lot of emulator news trickiling in and some updates that need to be brought on

Fans of Grim Fandango should have a reason to rejoice !

I updated the main thread to include the following:

1. Link to PSP emu for Android:
PPSSPP - a PSP emulator that's both fast and portable

This PSP emu is made by the same guy who did Dolphin for PC. I am hopeful he can get it full speed. Already it runs the same on Android as it does on PC. Only issue is overall compatibility (a problem for all PSP emus).

Since this is made by the guy who did dolphin I hope this means we can see Dolphin on Android in the future soon too !

Secondly:

Those who like Grim Fandango will be happy to see that you can already play it full speed on Android using Residual VM (will take a little work for initial setup)

forums.residualvm.org :: View topic - Android and IOS ports

This is still in a test build phase. I am hoping they polish it up and do an official release soon.

I have yet to get the PSP emu to work with any game and have tried quite a few that work fine on the PSP.

Based on how and what works so far, no harm no foul, but appreciate the effort.

The site lists only a few games working right now.

What is important is that the few that do work are full speed.

This is still a very early and unexpected suprise

The links for the psp emus dev site are above. He lists out which games are bootable.

He also notes not all formats are supported yet.

However as far as PSP emulation is concerned this is an impressove feat doubly so cause he released the Android and PC versions at the same time !

This man deserves donations.

The next year is going to be an amazing year for Android emulation:

The below all stand to occur :

1. Psp
2.Nds
3. Dreamcast
4. Grim fandango
5. Mame 32 speed increases
6. More Saturn optimizations
7. More n64 optimizations

I would like to see a Vectrex emu with full support. There is an app with all roms releasing on iOS by end of year. Preview so far indicates it rocks. Will be a purchase for me and iPad 3.

I use an iCade with the TF300 as a mini arcade cabinet. MAME Overloaded works fantastic with it, so speed updates will be nice.

Why not ask the dev making the IOS version if he plans to do an Android port ?

Not currently but we are getting close.

There are at least 3 respectable devs working on NDs emulators for Android. I think when the new Arm 15 cores come out in phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 then we should expect some real impacts.

On another note the MAMe4droid dev has stated that he is planning a big update to MAME4droid Reloaded when Arm15 phones/tablets become mainstream. He believes it should make almost all high end arcade games (talking PS2 & Dreamcast era) run 3-4x as fast

FPse For Android Works Really Well For Playstation/PSX games. This has hardware accelleration, OpenGL Support and plays nicely

And Gameboy Color A.D is a Nice app too.

Some games work on it differently than tigers though and he has a different control scheme. That might be something you could consider adding into your write up, the controllers that are currently available to make playing emulators a bit better.

Horribly sorry to ask this stupidly, but is the recommended NES emulator still one of the best out there and about this one for SNES?

Any good?

I am not a fan of most bt Controllers unless u can attach them and never have to remove them...

Mainly been going for which emulators get u the best compatiability but with a preference tied to devs who are not copying others and produce multiple emulators

That said the list is indeed of an update...I have been working 80 hours a week ...

Thank you for swift reply.


How about current situation with NES, SNES, Megadrive, GBC and N64 emulators?

I assume for SNES its SuperGNES , maybe Animaonline SNES Emulator

For NES obviously NES.emu (as mentioned in first post)

For Megadrive still MD.emu

And for N64 either Mupen64Plus AE or MegaN64 (Money isnt object here, I am mainly looking for quality)


And as last for GBC - Gameboy Color A.D. or GBC.emu


Sorry to ask so many questions at once, I just want to be sure to get the best before making purchase.

I prefer snes9x ex by Robert brogila aka explusalpha

Animaonline is a rip off copy of Yongzh

Explusalpha best for md (Sega cd ) but retroarch actually plays more Sega cd games

The rest all explusalpha

As for n64...

Nothing beats N64oid...to this day it has the best comparability and speed.

Get n64oid from slideme

I also have mupen64 but n64oid is best

Animaonline is a rip off copy of Yongzh

Explusalpha best for md (Sega cd ) but retroarch actually plays more Sega cd games

The rest all explusalpha

As for n64...

Nothing beats N64oid...to this day it has the best comparability and speed.

Get n64oid from slideme

I also have mupen64 but n64oid is best


Thank you for help. Two last questions and I am done (and thank you so much for being so patient and kind), the Snes9x EX+ on Android store is the same version found on the webpage of Robert Brogila right? And is the + version best for Nexus 7?

For kicks, I have been testing a bunch of resource heavy MAME games with the same 139.1 emulator that is on Android and iOS. Tested with my VZW GS3, Excite 7.7, TF300, iPod 5 and iPad 4.

To my surprise, the iPad 4 with A6X in spite of a super high res display performs much better than the other devices. I expected the Tegra 3 with lower res display to perform better, but it did not. It was about the same as the iPod 5 which has the older A5X chip.

I had all the Android devices in performance mode when tested. I would like to test one the newer chipset quad core tablets to see how they perform compared to the iPad. Must admit the iPad with iCade is a sweet combination. I use the TF300 with the iCade too, but the MAME performance on the iPad makes it the better combo.

Tested MAMEReloaded and Gridlee. Of course, the positive for Android is no need to jailbreak to get emus working. I got Gridlee before Apple pulled it from iTunes.

have any of the emulators added support for that new blue tooth controller? I forget the name of it, has 2 analog sticks, dpad, 6 buttons and 4 shoulder with a stand on it to hold your phone. I believe hexage games recently added support for it.

:edit:
Its called MOGA

Hi, I'm looking to purchase an android. I'd like to play NES, SNES, Sega, N64 and PS1 games. Just wondering what the best tablet is for me to purchase? All I want the tablet for is playing those emulators, don't really care about any of the other functions. Also need to be able to use a PS3 controller on it. If somebody couldn't give me some insight on what to purchase, I'd really appreciate it!

well that depends, do you want a 7 inch or 10 inch tablet?

Nexus 7 or 10 should do you fine for either. you can pair a PS3 via Bluetooth with an app from the play store, and both are pretty well priced for what you get, (decent storage/screen/etc).

I personally have a transformer prime I use, which is nice as the dock has a USB port so I don't have to faf about pairing the controller, just plug and go.
Plus the Tegra processor (that the nexus 7 also has) means I get Tegra optimized games, including remakes of PS2 stuff (GTA3/Vice city/Bards tale etc).
