Default Re: What's your favorite emulator(s)?

Software is software is software. Emulator or not.

Unless you're using 3D effects, it'll look the same on all cards regardless.

For the same reason that you told me. If you really have to ask that then you'd probably do well to socialise with people more.

Judging from what I've seen of MAME's zealots, I'd rather not.

Already stated. (and no, HDD space isn't the problem)

Efficiency is complimentary to accuracy. You're trying to say that you can only have one or the other and it's simply not true.

Because earlier I didn't think that this was going to turn into a name calling match.

If that justification helps you sleep better at night....

Never said I hated pirates, but hypocrites are an entirely different matter.

There can't be a homebrew scene without support for it. That'd be consoles and emulators.

<hr></blockquote>

It's not illegal unless you distribute it in that configuration. If someone wants to change a piece of software for personal use, they are allowed to do so.

As "horrendously inaccurate" as it is, It sure works better than MAME does for NeoGeo games.

Seems to me like you're the one lacking comprehension ability. You keep sticking words in my mouth.

First, see above.

Piracy is piracy. You either pirate software or you don't. I never said that I disapproved. Again, that was completely a fabrication of your imagination.
