Like walking into a car dealership and picking up another car for free because you already own one. Its the fact there is two distinct versions of the intellectual property you would have in your possession.
Please take note the TECHNICALLY bit, I have never ever heard of it being enforced ever, but as far as intellectual property licensing laws go, you are not allowed to reproduce the IP into multiple copies (unless you can prove they are for backups). Again though, hardly enforceable, and again, have never heard of it being enforced, I am just highlighting the technicality of it.
I've been using PCSX2 to play my copy of Timesplitters: Future Perfect recently as my younger brother still won't return my PS2 controllers. Other than the occasional graphical glitch and the hot, hot CPU on emulated CPU action causing a 68C temp, it runs fairly well.
Might look at using a Wii emulator at some point, I'd really need a sensor bar for it to work with any games I own though
About when do you guys expect that we'll start seeing 360 and ps3 emulators?
5+ years and thats very optimistic.
There is one guy that took interest in making 360 emu, but I don't know anyone else trying it.
I am honestly not surprised, because consoles nowadays are getting more complicated.
Is PCSX2 the best PS2 emulator? I was playing FFX again with it a while ago, but it was plagued with bugs and glitches.
PCSX2 is the only PS2 emulator that runs commercial PS2 games so I'd say it's best. As for FFX you should download latest version and it should be alright. AFAIK it is one of PS2 games that has low requirements.
I want to play God of War 1 on my PC so bad. :smith:
I don't bother with emulators mainly because I already have the hardware.
I would agree though that the original NO$GMB emulator (here) is pretty cool. It's ancient to today's standards but the minimum requirements are for an XT/AT (286) system running DOS so I can play Pokemon on my Compaq Portable 386's amber gas plasma display.
Also briefly had a 3DO but it was total ass and traded it for an equally useless Commodore CD32.
Now that I think of it, I have a Vectrex emulator for an old PDP-11 hidden somewhere but have no vector terminals to use it with.
Prime 1, no Echoes here.
What was that website that allowed you to play DOS games without downloading anything?
Tiny bits of content from TimeSplitters using PCSX2;
It runs fairly decently, the story mode has some slowdown issues during anything remotely intensive, the arcade modes are usually fairly fine give or take the occasional artefact (protip: virus mode and the ghost gun cause bad enough artefacts alone, together, holy shit it's bad).
Does Dolphin support 4 players?
wait, can't you make the mouse emulate the Wii mote? that would work with the MP trilogy for the wii
