are 4 working emulators that come with mekOS,
Mame 32 ,
Project 64 ,
Kega Fusion . This page is a quick starting point for
general tips, guides, links and resources.
- Getting ROM's is illegal
unless you own the game
- Copy your zipped up ROM into
the roms folder of the emulator.
- Never extract the contents
of an arcade zip file because arcade emulators run off of
the zip file itself.
- Never rename an arcade zip
file because its exact abbreviated name is how arcade
emulators can detect it.
- Sometimes a game will
benefit from having it's keys reassigned. This is specially
true of some of the Arcade (Mame) games.
