For questions about processes and software for emulating retro computer and console hardware (e.g. MAME, QEMU).

Emulation is the process of imitating software or hardware (usually hardware) with a program in order to run other (usually older) programs that require the emulated software or hardware to function.

Sample questions:

  • Which Commodore 64 emulator offers better compatibility for game ?
  • What platforms are supported by MAME?
  • How does a emulator handle 50Hz (PAL) games on a 60Hz (VGA) display?
