In case anyone was wondering, my current choice of emulators for screenshots. These may not be the best - many were picked out years ago and I don't use many of them enough to care. Asterixes (*) next to emulators that are actually pleasant to use.

  • 3DO: FreeDO
  • Amiga: WinUAE + lots of fighting
  • Amstrad CPC: Arnold (it doesn't always work)
  • Apple II: Had to resort to an online one
  • Atari 2600: Stella
  • Atari 8-bit: Atari 800Win Plus (also doesn't always work). I'm using an "old" colour palette because they changed it between versions for some reason. Who knows if it's correct.
  • Atari 5200: Atari 800Win Plus ^^
  • Atari ST: Steem
  • BBC Micro: BeebEm
  • ColecoVision: BlueMSX *
  • Commodore 64/VIC-20: WinVice *
  • Classic Macintosh: Mini vMac, Basilisk II, regular breaks for fresh air, trained therapist on-hand
  • Dragon 32: xroar (meant to work with TRS-80 CoCo too but bleh)
  • Famicom/NES: Nestopia *
  • Game Boy (Color/Advance): VisualBoy Advance *
  • That official Gamecom emulator
  • IBM PC: DOSBox *
  • Mega Drive/Game Gear: Kega Fusion *
  • Model 2 arcade: Model 2 Emulator

  • MSX 1/2: BlueMSX *
  • PC-6001: ip6
  • PC Engine: Ootake *
  • TRS-80: SDLTRS
  • X68000: XM6 (emulation a bit dodgy - can't do After Burner II title screen for example)
  • ZX Spectrum: SpecEmu *
  • Anything else: MAME/MESS/whatever
