Game Emulator Page

There are are 4 working emulators that come with mekOS, Mame 32 , Project 64 , SNES9x and Kega Fusion . This page is a quick starting point for general tips, guides, links and resources.

General Tips

  • 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.
