Best Emulators?


#1

Hey guys.

Im currently using MAME32 ver 0.90u1, but its compatability isn’t great.

Does anyone know of a decent emulator which will run CPS/2/3 and NeoGeo MVS roms?

I remember trying a couple of other emulators a while ago, but they weren’t as configurable as MAME32, and the front-ends on them were awful.

Any help = much appreciated

Maybe you should try the latest version of MAME.


#3

I usually use Mame32k++ or Mame++0.117.


#4

Thought I had got the latest. Only downloaded it last week lol. WIll have a look round…


#5

Final Brn Alpha.

MAME is garbage (performance+interface)


#6

The current MAME release is 1.29.


#7

Final Burn Alpha.

Or just download GGPO and use the Final Burn that comes packaged with it as well as being able to play online


#8

mame have the best video quality and interface option


#9

video quality is so great that it naturally produces around 3 frames of input lag

fun


#10

Just got Mame32k++ - works a treat.

Have problems with GGPO - it sometimes locks up/freezes for no apparent reason.


#11

3fps?
game ver?
mame ver?
how you checked?


#12

Very impressed with MAME32k++


#13

Final Burn alpha all the way man


#14

for mame32 ++ where do i find the config for buttons, ive been looking for awhile and cant find it, thx in advance


#15

im using final burn alpha and mama plus!

have you tried to press “tab” ingame ? there should be an input option (game and gerneral)


#16

tere was a discontinued version of mame non official that allowed 3d acceleration with your graphic card making street fighter ex, tekken , strider 2, rival schools look much better then how there are in the current version of mame, you guys know what the ver was called?


#17

Yes, Mame++. It allows you to use PSX plugins for improved emulation. The last version released of that was .119. Here it is: http://rapidshare.com/files/178666179/mameppkgui.rar

The best emulator for CPS2/3 and Neogeo games is FBA/nFBA. MAME is the only option for a lot of other arcade games, but its insistence on “pure” emulation means that its a super resource hog. Not that this should bother anyone outside of some 3D titles.


#18

i recommend this cause it works fine for me and mame has always been complicated to get working especially the online play for ggpo


#19

thanks any other arcade emulator use the graphic card to improve grphical quality?

i knwo there was a 3d specific one but i want to try and imrove the older alpha, Mvc, Marvel super heros, SF3’s, as on a 42 inch lcd they need some anti al, antrirosphic x8 etc???

Try FB Alpha with an HQ2x or HQ4x setting. I don’t personally like filters but those should look nice.
