Indeed. Especially since Nintendo themselves cherry-pick when emulation is legal:
Nintendo owns the ROM. Where they get it is irrelevant.scruss wrote: ↑Tue Aug 14, 2018 3:30 pmIndeed. Especially since Nintendo themselves cherry-pick when emulation is legal:
It's particularly amusing that for Wii Virtual Console, Nintendo almost certainly used a ROM image of Super Mario Brothers that they found on the internet (consequently bad and wrong and illegal by their standards). Check out Frank Cifaldi's talk from GDC 2016 for more details: "It's Just Emulation!" - The Challenge of Selling Old Games (the fun bit is at 14:28, but the whole talk is great).
- Wii Virtual Console, NES Mini = perfectly fine
- Any emulation not sold by Nintendo = bad and wrong and illegal
To the OP: if you're wanting to run more than a couple of emulators, RetroPie is the least hassle - but it really does work best if you dedicate an entire Raspberry Pi to it.
Thanks alot, im installing these emulators. Are there any lists of downloadable emulators somewhere in the internet? A PS1 emulator would make my day.
Code: Select all
./configure && make
Just tried this out. Looks great so far...
