Android Emulator Tests

The Nes / Famicom (NestopiaUE), libretro core, on The Retroarch emulator frontend, is the most accurate & preforms better than all other NES emulators on Android OS. ... g_results/

You need a beast of a device to handle Snes / Super Famicom (BSNES - Mercury Accuracy), (BSNES -
Mercury Balanced) & (BSNES - Mercury Performance). For more moderate phones, phablets, & tablets go with The Snes9x+ application available on The Google Playstore. ... ng_result/

Sega MS/GG/MD/CD (Genesis Plus GX) -RetroArch ... g_results/

Go with Game Boy / Game Boy Colour (Gambatte) on Retroarch. GBC.emu uses Gambatte, has the same accuracy & performance, but isn't free, with less personalization options. ... -c.169937/

Go with Game Boy Advance (mGBA) on Retroarch. GBA.emu uses mGBA & has the same issues as GBC.emu as written above. ... g_results/

For ePSXe use The SCPH-18000[NTSC-J] BIOS. That BIOS isn't region locked & actually works with for High Level Emulation or HLE for ePSXe. Even with coming from The PS2. The BIOS check size is adequate on Android. The PSP's PSX or PSOne emulator is just a modifyed SCPH-100[NTSC] without the PS1 startup logo & menu. ... a-version/

Go with (Beetle PSX HW) on Retroarch if you've got a beast of a device. ... a-release/

For Nintendo 64-Bit, go with Nintendo 64 (Mupen64 Plus Gles3) or (ParraLLel). ParraLLel can use The Vulkan API.

For PSP, PPSSPP application on The Google Playstore.

Of course for (N)DS(L)(i)(XL), go with DraStic instead of Nintendo DS (DeSume) on Retroarch.

I think this would fit better under "Off The Wall".

Just a correction that GBA.EMU uses the VBA-M core and not mGBA.

the .EMU emulators are not free but are open source, if you really don't want to pay for them you can just compile a build yourself :P

the retroarch cores... are like the pc version of the emulators or something?

i saw gba m desmume bsnes cores even that new melonds and wow i cant even run some of those emus on my pc (im a xp user forever)

do those cores get updated often with additions and bug fixes when the pc emulator gets updated?
And what is the latest version of the standalone pokemini android emulator?

I dont like retroarchs onscreen buttons they are plain and distorted in my phones screen and i pressed some button and could not exit the app because the buttons dissappeared... and the back physical button did nothing usually it brings the exit pop up in other emus.

The physical back key aint working even in the main menu lol
