PostSubject: What is emulation?   Mon Feb 08, 2010 3:03 am

Emulation in the gaming sense is utilising your PC to run a program that allows a computer (or some modern consoles) to act as a different video game console. Emulators are most often used to play older video games. The most comminly used emulation software goes by the name M.A.M.E which stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. M.A.M.E allows users to play arcade games through files called ROM's which are original copies of the arcade machines sofware. Once you have a ROM for an arcade game you'd like to play M.A.M.E uses your PC to run the ROM file exactly as if it were in a arcade machine allowing you to experinse the same sights, sounds and feel of the original game.

Emulators come in all varities ranging from the Atari 2600 up to the Playstation 2. If you are interested and would like to learn more check out www.coolrom.com/faq.php

Xyeer0 HAS A TON OF KNOWLEDGE ON EMULATION

I showed Xyeer0 the basics of how to use MAME and next thing I know he has EVERY emulator and EVERY game availibe on the "interwebs"

I also am nearing the end of my "summer MAME cab project". I am taking an old Xevious cab that is gutted. All I have to do is put my PC in it, hook up my X-Arcade Tanksitck. Speaking of which Xyeer0 has built his own arcade sitck!
