Emulators & ROMs


Recommended Posts

Sup guys & gals.  I need to get my hands on some ROMS.  I pulled out Mayte's ol NES the other day & we were having a trip.  I need to get her & myself some of these games.  If you know a good spot to grab SNES, NES, Genesis, NeoGeo emulators & Roms, please leave the links here.  I've been running into a bunch of dead ends & endless banners.

For Arcade (mame and such), Sega Master System, and Neo geo games I go to fileplanet.com, just go to classic games, and they'll have a bunch of stuff.  It's a pain in the ass to get anything else nowadays, I'd actually be interested in where to get good NES, SNES, and genesis stuff too.

I see on Kazaa you can download them.  I'm going to try a few from there.  I use SNES9xW  good program.  Also have NESticle, GeneCYST and KBMame... but it doesn't work.


I want Mega Man games... Castlevania... Metroid... Samurai Showdown 2+... alot of stuff.  I just want to make a compilation of them and I'm sick of going to that top 100 site & being led in circles by banners.

That's a good idea, i can do that. Ill give a quick general list if i can, let you know what i got, you tell me what to leave in a ROM folder on FTP 1...


genesis.gif: Streets of Rage 1-3

Golden Axe, Shinobi, ToeJam & Earl, Sonic 1-3, Vectorman 1-2, NBA Jam, Moonwalker, Gunstar Heroes, Strider, Rambo III, Bonanza Bros, Castlevania Bloodlines, Double Dragon, etc....


nes.gif: fuck. 165 of em, no lie, if you dig it request it, i might have it...if you want, instead of listing i could just screen capture the list and leave it in the ROM folder?


snes.gif: Castlevania IV, Contra III of course, all the FF games you dont care about (prolly), Actraiser, DK country 1-2, Zelda, Megaman X (only part 1, sorry), F-Zero, Final Fight, Smash TV, Starfox, Street Fighter II (i wanna say Wolrd Warrior?), Mario Kart, Mario world, Mario all stars, Mario bakes a cake etc.

do you remember the Super Star Wars series for SNES? I thought it was cool, tricky controls tho..i have all 3, good games but hard.

Turtles in Time, Metroid, Super Punch-Out, Off-Road, X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse (good one nobody played), Zobmies at my Neighbors, etc...


Anyway i gots a lot. I can upload some now if ya want or have em burned for you when i get back in miami, your call Chiefy.

Chief....you gotta answer my damn question and say what you want...ive got @ 250-300 megs worth of ROMs for those 3 systems...

PS could you upload the emulators you use? I have Netscile & Genocyst (same program i think, just different platforms..its real easy to use, i love it) but my SNES one's never been that good, and they all need upgrading...

Sure, I use SNES9X for Super NES games... I tried a few for Neo Geo but couldn't get them to work. Did you ever get a N64 one that worked?!


I want some cool NES ones, they're small enough to upload en masse. The SNES & GENESIS ones turn out to be up to a few megs each, for dialup, that's a bitch to upload.

Ok...you want me to just toss all 30 megs of NES ROMs into your folder?

N64...no i never did, but Yahven did as i recall...he said Zelda 64 lagged, but that was when he owned this computer so im sure its better now. Ask him bout that one...as for Neo-Geo, nah, i never even tried, got Magic Engine for Turbografx hacked tho, that was cool. Been meanin to check out MAME (arcade one).

Hey, so i was thinking, now that ive got a non-arcahic PC i should get back into these some day.


I had Genocyst and Netsicle working ok, someitmes. Never got MAME but always wanted to try it - where's a good spot to get a current emu & ROMs, isohunt & torrent sites or wha?

Also, what's a cheap controller i could use to play them, or does anyone have an extra? I think XP shat on my old Sidewinder.

ok, best emu's for their prospective platforms IMO.


NES: FCE Ultra is all the rage plays damn near anyhting including Castlevania 3.

Genesis: I use Kega Fusion, it supports just about every old sega system known to main including Sega CD and 32x.

SNES: Tough call, SNES9X is keen, but I always preferred Zsnes, just works nicer.

Turbografix/CD: Well, you have two options Magic Engine which is the shit, or Yame which is also the shit. Magic Engine only does TG-16 stuff, while Yame also does some nintendo systems. Still Yame is free while Magic Engine is not. There should be an english version of Yame somewhere at : Retro ISO Gaming Guild. Now you can play all the old Turbo-CDs you missed out on.

Neo-Geo: Lotsa chouces though I would stick wiht either NeoRageX or Kawaks, several versions of MAME also support Neo-Geo.


You can get all of these at Zophar's Domain. Badass site. For ROMs I go to EmuAsylum


As far as pads, Radio Shack oddly enough has some good cheap ones, I picked one up for $20 the other day, dual analog.

Ok you guys have been going about it all wrong...stay off Limewire. Many of those roms are corrupted and are non-compatable. Your Rom Fairy Godfather has arrived and this link and it is all you will need for now... Enjoy...

http://emu-russia.km.ru/default.php?l=en Main Page




This link is a Russian "underground" site- All roms are American versions unless indicated (there are tons of Japanese versions also)


If you have any troubles downloading the roms, check out your software. Your browser/download manager has to be able to return the REFERRER parameter correctly. Some firewalls block this parameter so check out it's settings. Otherwise, you'll get the error/link stealing page instead of necessary rom!

It's clear that Mozilla and Download Accelerator


DO NOT return (or configured to do so by default) the REFERRER parameter at all (and DA sometimes tells that you need a password to download roms - it's crazy :)).

You should use browsers (Opera or IE) or good download managers (FlashGet or GetRight) to download the roms. They all work fine. The site's library is incredible and the site itself is easy to navigate.


There is also a section for
