The supaboy probably has a 16:9 screen because they buy screens from other companies, and nobody really makes 4:3 screens.

The psp has a n64 and ps1 emulator. So this systems pretty much useless. At least for 5th gen and below.

My set up is the DS lite with an acekard flashcart and a ez Flash omega for ds and GB/C/A games and New 3ds with cfw and a few emulators installed for NES SNES and sega games.

Yeah.. Of Course only games that I already own.
The Shield Portable is the obvious go to if you want the perfect emulation machine. But there are plenty of other choices, Vita is an excellent step up if you're used to messing around with PSPs. Your phone that's always with you is also usually a stupidly good emulator... if you have a small controller or something. Heck my phone can even run Gamecube perfectly.

what a fucking idiot, like most people saying about "pirated" games. Yeah right, if you own the physical copy of a gba game ITS TOTALLY OK TO DOWNLOAD A PIRATED VERSION OF IT! emulation alone is something that companies hate, even if you own the copy of the game companies don't care, the DON'T WANT YOU TO PLAY THIS GAME ON ANOTHER SYSTEM, ONLY ON THEIR OWN SYSTEM. Not only that, but buying a used copy a snes game for example does NOTHING to help nintendo, you are buying a used game, the money goes to the game that actually SUPPORTED nintendo and maybe bought the game full price or on sale. The game may be 2nd or 3rf or 476284rd had so nobody give a shit. So stop acting like the "good" guy that supports companies. You all download pirated backups, so stop trying to prove the opposide and shut your mouth, or just don't mention it like all normal people. I own a tons and TONS of games from ps2/3/4 psp psvita, all legal, and I also downloaded AAAAAAAALLLL NES SNES SEGA and others LIBRARY because I wasn't even born yet and bying many games from these systems doesn't even matters to companies anymore. Ok.. this comment is just.. an answer to many many many other videos and stupid people, its just happen that this video was the one that I decided to wrote something that none will read and even if they read it who gives a shit. I am bored

Or just get a cheap 2ds xl and do the virtual console, 😉 don’t forget that any 2ds/3ds can play any ds game. Legal, cheaper, easier, and works way way better.

With the installation of the H-Encore exploit for HENkaku on the Playstation Vita 3.68, Snes9xVita, the DS4Vita plugin, and the download of Earthbound make A fantastic first experience of an SNES game that holds its own weight in spite of the 23 years since initial release.

Didn't even consider the scaling modes for the snes emulator? Didn't consider that the snes screen was higher resolution than the original DS? Didn't care to check to see the y-offset options in the snes emulator's menu on the ds?

A new android phone pretty much emulates snes, nes, sega genesis, game boy advance, Nintendo ds, Mame 0.139, Atari, sega CD, turbo grafx perfectly while enhancing the sound and overall look of the game to look 10 times better. Powerstone one and two run flawlessly on a android phone via reicast. You can get a wireless controller and attach the phone to it. And emulation with the vulkan engine on android allow most psp games to run surprisingly well. I honestly got phones eventually being the absolute top and best all around mobile emulator pretty soon. Imagine having the entire library of all retro games on your phone lol. What would happen if Nintendo or Sega decide to venture into manufacturing cell phones 🤔 mobile gaming on the phone would rule all.

Imagine a balance. On one side: The GPD XD. On the other, a jailbroken/jailbreakable Nintendo Switch. They are almost same price. Guess which one is better? Also, the New 3DS can run a bunch of stuff jailbroken. The GPD XD is shite.
"Only download games you already own!" Okay grandma.

3:36 This is no glitch. This happens because the screen resolution of the SNES is taller than that of the DS, which means that unless you squash the image, you cannot see the whole image. The solution is to reposition the screen and cut off part of the bottom, or to shrink the image to the DS screen can display everything (albeit smaller).

Since I'm not interested in most newer stuff, I've been rockin a Gameboy Advance SP (AGS-101 backlit) with an EverDrive X5 flash cart, which not only seamlessly supports just about the whole GBA library (only exclusions being games that had carts with special hardware) but also does GBC, GB, NES, Game Gear and Master System. It's an extremely compact system that really does fit in a pocket and can run a ton of games. At home I've got a GameCube (EON HDMI adapter on the way) with a Gameboy Player that I can plug the EverDrive into and continue my games on the big screen. The biggest downside of this setup is the lack of SNES support, which is something I've yet to decide on. Been debating between doing a RetroPie build, DS/3DS, PSP etc.

Legally yeaaah. When the guys hacked NES classic mini - official product of Nintendo, it turned out that the images of pre-installed games in it recorded in .nes! In the format invented and created by pirates! So fuck Nintendo. If it's released more than 10 years ago, it's public domain.
T Lee (10 days ago)
Also, look into the GCW Zero for emulation up to PS1 (somewhat laggy). I own one, had it for about 4 years now, and hasn't let up.
Ayjop (10 days ago)
The switch will probably be the best console to play retro games on. Not only can you already play pirated switch games but with retroarch you can play NES games all the way up to potentially Wii games and Gameboy to DS or even 3ds if citra is optimized well enough. We will see by the end of the console’s lifespan
Ayjop (10 days ago)
I just hack my 3ds. It’s around $100 and you can play Gameboy-3ds games and NES/SNES. Honestly the best imo

I play my retro games on my phone, using the touchscreen controls, with image interpolation, the hq4x filter on and with the "fill the screen" 18:9 stretched aspect ratio.
ACE1252 (12 days ago)
GPD XD hands down for an all in one. However, I found the included emulators to have lag and some sound delay. Here are my recommendations for the best emulators.....and no I'm not getting kick backs from John. =) I just found them to have no input/sound delay. John NES - NES John SNES - SNES DraStic - Nintendo DS Mupen64Plus FZ Edition - N64 ePSXe - PS1 D-Touch - For Classic Doom(must own Doom and/or Doom 2 for PC). It can be used with Doom Mods. Get it via Amazon app.

Emulators and roms still are illegal even if you own the game :/
Colm McGivern (10 days ago)
Connor G I'm not necessarily sure on the rules/laws on emulators but as long as you own the game, ROMs are legal. It it your consumer right to make backups of software you own.

The whole R4 3DS thing is uh, messy. Hi, supervisor from GBAtemp (where you got your footage of that forum post with all the emulators). What you showed only plays DS roms but on the 3DS. It still runs on the 3DS's DS hardware only, but gets around the blacklisting that an original R4 would get blocked with. The card you are looking for is called a Gateway. It comes with a 3DS card that plays .3DS files, and a "blue card" which plays DS games. The Gateway requires specific CFW to run, and EVERYTHING the Gateway can do, there is new and up to date CFW that can run games, emulators, and homebrew without a flash cart. The "glitch" you are showing off at 3:35 isn't a glitch. Its a scaling issue that can be corrected with some settings. The aforementioned "glitch" comes from the DS lite's pixel height being only 192 where a SNES game would have a resolution with a height of 224. Hence, you not seeing mario on the bottom of the screen. Your guest is exactly right, the M3 is actually a near perfect hardware clone of the original R4, you could even swap firmware between the two. ANYWAYS, I think you should give a second look at Retroarch on the 3DS. GPDXD is a bit outside of most people's pricerange for retro gaming.

Its true, that the 64 GB GPD XD model is more than 200 USD, but there is a cheaper 32 GB model which is far more cheaper. I bought mine for 139.9 USD. The N64 emulation is not perfect. Lots of games have gliches or run slow or dont boot up. BUT: all PS1, SEGA, SNES, NEOGEO,CPS1, CPS2, CPS3, MAME 0139 romset, PGM ARCADE, PC ENGINE CD, C64 games work like charm with full speed (measured with fps counter), with the analog controller support, just use the proper emulator with the proper bios files (ePSXe, MD.emu, Classicboy, Snes9x, NEO.emu, MAME4Droid, FBA, PCE.emu, C64.emu...)

QuotePilgrim (20 days ago)
RetroArch >>> OpenEmu For one, it supports far more platforms, ant it's multiplatform, so you can run it on Windows, Linux, Mac and pretty much any modern video game console. And it's pretty damn easy to use. You generally don't even need to configure the controllers or manually download and install cores because RetroArch does that for you automatically.
Less's GC (20 days ago)
Cool. Emulation is okay but I'd always strongly prefer original hardware. If you were going down the route of Nintendo I'd recommend just using one of the clone GBA systems, & a Ever Drive. At least you'd be playing the game as is should or was meant to be played. R4 Carts as well. Point made, thanks.

Miles (22 days ago)
Downloading games you already own is just as illegal as downloading games you've never owned. You can either dump your own cartridges if you want to stay within the law or just say fuck it and torrent every ROM ever otherwise.

The cheap basic R4 card works on 3DS ASWELL as the DS lite etc, you just cant play 3DS games. You can run SNES, DS, GBA and GB games and you only need the "Big expensive" card if you want 3DS games

even if you own a game already, that does not give you the right, to download the rom on the internet. i mean, who cares... just making things clear.

You forgot hacked 3ds console. It runs any retro game and the new 3ds plays ps1 games comfortably. The only reason I don't use it to retro game (yet) is because nintendo does NOT tolerate hacks these days :v

I'm hoping to get my hands on the GPD XD Plus. For some reason, it's cheaper than the older version on most sites. It's got a newer version of android and Bluetooth. They also upgraded the RAM on it. If you get one, definitely do a review of it.

REtroArch And Emulatofs On My Wii
klauszik (1 month ago)
I have a PSP Go and a new 3DS, but my preferred method of playing classic games in a portable manner has got to be my Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and SFC30 Pro combo. The S9+ provides a brilliant screen, has enough power for retroarch to have no perceived lag and also has awesome speakers for a mobile device. The 8bitdo sfc 30 pro is just an amazing controller and there's a smartphone holder add-on for it, which combines the two into an awesome package. I prefer this combo to any available handheld, including the Nintendo Switch.

What is "DM" ?
lurkerrekrul (1 month ago)
Fun Fact: Downloading ANY copyrighted games that the owners haven't authorized for distribution is against the law regardless of whether you own an actual physical copy of that game or not. Unless you get your games from an authorized source, the only fully legal way to play those games on an emulator is to make a copy of the game yourself. Fairly easy to do with discs, but you'll have to jump through some hoops if the game is on a cartridge. Also, if the game includes ANY DRM to prevent it from being copied, then you're not allowed to make copies of it, period, no matter how pure your intentions are, since breaking/bypassing DRM has been made illegal in most countries. So while emulators are fully legal to use, the only legal way to get the games into the emulator is to make copies from your own discs/cartridges, and only if there's no DRM standing in your way. Of course most people don't bother to do this and there's virtually no risk in downloading unauthorized copies, but if you want to be in 100% compliance with the law, you have to make the copies yourself. Welcome to the wonderful world of modern copyright.
