Here are some answers to common questions made about emulation.
Emulation is simply using a program (emulator) to play games on your computer. These games are called ROMS. There are emulators for most vintage gaming systems including Atari, Nintendo, Sega and even old arcade games.
Where do i get the emulators?
You can download emulators on several sites. Begin my checking all of our affiliate links. They have a lot of emulators to download for free.
I've got the Emulator, now how do i play games?
Now you have to have the rom files, these are the games you will play. Each game, like for instance Super Mario World, is about 1MB in space. We have a lot of roms available on this site.
Ok, i have the Emulator, and i downloaded a rom file, what do i do?
It's easy: run the emulator, then in the menubar of the emulator, go to 'File' and open the rom file.
If i got a SNES emulator can i play NES, SNES and N64 roms? No, snes emulators only work with snes roms.
