  13. EMULATORS - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
  14. (MAIN SITE: - Roms [game files], Emulators [programs that run the games], BIOS [special operating files for some emulators such as Playstation 1 and Sega CD, these are necessary to get them to run], gaming music, and.... Books, Comics, Guides & Magazines [a huge ton of vidya related merchandise for free download.])

  16.  
  17. (The emulator section itself. Ask me for help.)
  18. https://www.emuparadise.me/Emulators.php
  19.  
  20. (This is where you can download individual games one by one.)
  21. https://www.emuparadise.me/roms-isos-games.php
  22.  
  23. (This is where you can download huge batches of every normal game for ENTIRE SYSTEMS! I recommend doing this to save time as you don't want to systematically download 700+ games for say, the Sega Genesis or some such.)
  24. https://www.emuparadise.me/Complete_ROM_Sets_%28Full_Sets_in_One_File%29_ROMs/List-All-Titles/37
  25.  
  26. (Decent site where you can download games one at a time, see some primitive tutorials and get emulators. It's kind of unnecessary when you have emuparadise.)
  27. http://coolrom.com/
  28.  
  29. (Rom site where you download stuff. It's kind of unnecessary when you have emuparadise.)
  30. http://www.freeroms.com/
  31.  
  32. (The development team for the massive MAME emulator which runs tens of thousands of arcade games.)
  33. http://mamedev.org/?p=414
  34.  
  35. (Place where people hack roms (games) and make variants of well known games for you to download for free and goof with. You might need to learn about patching IPS [I'll describe another time] but it can be really fun at times. A project for later.)

  39. =================================================================================
  40. SPECIAL NOTE: -
  41. There are a lot of emulators that are pretty much complete and will run almost every game for that system. WARNING: - Sometimes a game is not perfectly emulated, but the systems I am going to name are pretty much cherry.
  42.  
  43. NES
  44.  
  45. SNES
  46.  
  47. Sega Genesis
  48.  
  49. Sega CD
  50.  
  51. Sega 32X
  52.  
  53. Gameboy
  54.  
  55. Gameboy Color (some games don't work 100% on all emulators. It's a crap shoot.)
  56.  
  57. Game Boy Advance
  58.  
  59. Nintendo DS (Yes, it works on a powerful computer.)
  60.  
  61. TG16 (Turbo Graphx 16... spell check. I don't know how to spell it, but it has a lot of action games for it's era.)
  62.  
  63. Turbo Duo (Off-shoot of the TG16, it had the first CD games for a console that I know of.)
  64.  
  65. Atari (Old consoles: various, 2600, 5200, 7800)
  66.  
  67. Colecovision (Really old as well.)
  68.  
  69. Amiga (difficult to emulate, but one you know what you are doing there are a few old games for this old computer that are kind of neat. I wouldn't recommend this for beginners by a longshot.)
  70.  
  71. DOS (Old "disk operating system" computers that I grew up with. There is a plethora of awesome and also a mountain of bad, but it's worth investigating later through the emulator "DOSBOX" using what is called a "Frontend" at a later date. WARNING: - This takes some setting up to do and learning ancient stuff, but it's worth it for the patient. The games for this also known as "Abandonware.")
  72.  
  73. Apple IIC (REALLY OLD COMPUTER series. You have to be pretty much a history buff to want to play these, but it does exist with pretty much spot-on emulation.)
  74.  
  75. Arcade games (MAME is the emulator to go to. I will teach this one because it needs a bit of setting up, but there are literally TENS OF THOUSANDS OF GAMES FOR THIS from decades of vidya history.)
  76.  
  77. Nintendo Famicom Disk System - (Old attachment to the Japanese version of the NES. It was an actual disk drive. Emulation is perfect and I tried it a few years ago. There isn't many games for it though.)
  78.  
  79. Nintendo Virtual Boy - (This failed system has an emulator oddly.)
  80.  
  81. Nintendo Game Cube - (Seriously emulation has come pretty far over the years. I have no experience with this one as of 2017-01-28.)
  82.  
  83. PSP / Playstation Portable - (My old comp can't run the emulator for this, but soe people swear by this emulation scene. Something to investigate later.)
  84.  
  85. Neo Geo - (Old console that was really expensive back in the day with massive cartridges.)
  86.  
  87. Commodore 64 - (Ancient computer with a total of 64k of memory! O_O; You have to know what you are doing and 99.9% of C64 games are trash. There are a few treasures here, but you have to know what you are looking for.)
  88.  
  89. Sega Game Gear - (Old portable from Sega that didn't do well.)
  90.  
  91. Sega Master System - (Sega's console before the Genesis. It's hit or miss 8-bit games.)
  92.  
  93. Playstation 1 - (Needs BIOS and some tweaking, but yep, you can play old PS1 games on even a crappy laptop such as mine!)
  94.  
  95. Playstation 2 - (Some emulators exists, and you need a powerful computer to run them. I do not know if the emulators are 100% compatible with all games yet.)
  96.  
  97. OTHERS - (There are other really old computers, arcade systems that are already covered in MAME, junk like the Panasonic 3D0 and more, but it's not worth talking about here.)
  98.  
  99.  
  100. GLOSSARY: -
  101. "Vidya" - Silly shorthand for video games on some sites.
