Entertainment & Technology / Re: emulators.... which ones?
« Last post by Rivkid on November 17, 2019, 23:56:20 PM »
I bought a wii on ebay and I got my spare system up and running too... was running great, had to check gigabyte site for some drivers, saw bios updates, thought I might as well.... which turned everything to sh*t

total pain in the arse.... finally managed to get an oil bios running, but it's still running like sh*t, got pissed off and ordered a new motherboard.... ordered lga-1155... but 1115 turned up :-(

looked around harder.... no new 1155 I can see anywhere :-(

I'll try a few more bios versions and see if that sorts it

I've got a wii running many different emulators in the living room - works great really nice solution. I've also got an adapter which lets me connect old mega drive, snes and nes pads to it. Defo worth it for how cheap you can get and softmod the wii for.

I would agree with you to a point, but at the moment there is what are effectively bribes coming in from Russian businessmen, police reports being delayed and prosecutions sat on.

They seem to have some control of Boris, but TBH he looks better off playing with clay in a school than being PM in parliament. Austerity never worked yet they insist on continuing their failure, and I certainly do not trust them on the promises of more money for the NHS.

Jeremy Corbyn, while I do not mind most of his policies, we would be better off kick starting our economy again rather than continuing with austerity and giving the rich even more tax cuts. Then his Brexit stance is leave while his party is remain.

AS for Swinson, umm, voted with the Tories a bit too much for my preference and abstained on the voting to help protect the NHS.

You could argue that none of them look like PM material, but I'm sure this has happened before in our history and the eventual winner ended being an ok (as far as they can be for a politician) PM.

Maybe it's more the fact that being the PM makes you a good leader, than being a good leader makes you PM?

That's a cool setup. I'm starting to do similar in my man-cave, I just bought an Intel NUC which came with a USB pen running Plex, a PS1 Classic mini which I'm going to mod with bleem to put all the PS1 games on, and I've got a Pi I've yet to build which I'll get RetroPi running on.

I'm running RetroPi on a raspberry Pi in a mini NES case and wireless controller.. it's basically a modified version of RetroArch and Emulation Station for the front end.. no idea if it's powerful enough to do Wii emulation though..

Should be a dolphin core to run Wii on PC.

But tbh, a Wii is like £15 and is pretty trivial to hack.  It's not worth the effort of an emulator.

I... didn't even know a Wii could be hacked...

I'll get one on ebay and a drive for it

I used to run SNES stuff on an emulator at home for my nephew and niece, was on a 1.3gig early pentium....

the spare system is an i5 2500k, can't remember ram, has an ssd... no hdmi out for tv so ordered a 1050ti   (incase I want to do anything else with it later on)

actually... now I've typed that out I think my full ld system might be here at work and full of stuff...  (it's too easy to buy stuff!)

Even a stoneage PC will run a lot of the classic arcade stuff with comfort, a good dark horse, simple yet wacky arcade game to play is "hyper bishi bashi champ"  :thumbup:

But what about ROMs!? You can get them from archive.org with a couple of minutes of poking about, here for example is a complete set for mame2003+ https://archive.org/details/MAME_2003-Plus_Reference_Set_2018
