Get an nes or gameboy Emulator running on a 286 then call me ;)

I am curious though besides one gameboy emulator and a z80 cpm emulator were there any emulators for 286 machines?

neoragex was as fast as a neogeo which I used to run on a K6-233, ran every ROM I had too. Genecyst and zsnes (already mentioned) worked fine on that machine too (and I suspect they would work on lesser hardware just fine). Earlier versions of mame running classic non 3D arcade games upto say early 90's (such as NBA jam, Commando, iRobot, start wars etc) worked fine. tbh I never found speed a problem, it was more compatibility. I had various other MegaDrive and 32X emulators such as AGES and when they worked, were very playable, but at the time didn't support a lot of titles. Emulation for those systems was in it's infancy then. an N64 emulator I has (can't remember the name) struggled though.

On a P3/800 I used to run PSEemu and ePSXe which both played ISO's faster and higher resolution than a PlayStation ever could. I used to play Tony Hawks, Wip3out and various 3D beat-em-ups (EvilZone, Dead or Alive, Tekken) at 800x600 (PlayStation maxed out at 640×480) with ATi Rage Pro. Smooth as silk. I suspect lesser hardware would work too since the GFX was doing most of the work in these situations (say P3/500 etc). I was using WinUAE on the P3/800 at that time, which worked as fast as the Amiga500plus I used to have, can't remember emulating various other accelerators though, and probably not going beyond the Amiga CPU timings.

neoragex? what version?

what about the others (c64/atari-st/amiga/nes/snes/etc.)

I am actually collecting Emulators for my P200MMX.

It depends, if the emulator uses SSE2 the atom could be better.

Generally I think Atom IPC ~= P4 IPC.

My 200MMX has no SSE. Actually I am preferring Emulators that run in Dos over the early pendants in windows on my Win95b setup. It seems that the Emulators for Dos are faster and better, even if they are started from the Win95-Desktop.

The early Css64-Version runs really good and does not produce sound stuttering or flickering image.

I was messing around with the last DOS version (0.70??) of MEKA the other day on my 233MMX. It goes pretty well; seems to run most Master System / Game Gear games at full framerate and I didn't notice any emulation issues. Might be worth a try.

Thx, what Games should I try (are best) on that machines?

I checked "fellow" for Dos. This is so much better than "UAE"! on my P200MMX.
Though it does not use a 50HZ Resolution on my TFT, but 640x480 with 60Hz is just fine. Centered Image, Sound is good, animation is good.

0.6b and 0.8c were the ones I used. I also used something called the "redblood bios", which as the name implies made metal slug 'blood' red instead of usual grey/light blue colour. ;)

As mentioned, zsnes had no problems with any of the roms I had iirc. Amiga was always WinUAE (but on a P3, bit later). I don't think UAE was that great at the time.

For Megadrive/Genesis (if you are interested), Genecyst was the best by far, but also AGES, Megasis and KGEN98 worked on my K6-233.

I expect so, given that I used a PC emulator (PCTask) on an Amiga eons ago (before I even got a PC) to emulate DOS... which worked, albeit in a limited capacity, I suspect there were emulators on PC systems then too.

Don't know if it will run on a 286 but it certainly will under Dos. http://zboy.sourceforge.net/
There's a glitch in the matrix.

I love it, when they still code something new and useful for DOS. :kiss:
I am aroused about any X86 stuff that has full functional ISA stuff. I think i have problem.

Still plenty of embedded systems running on Dos.
