I've always been partial to FCE Ultra, even on my old shitty computer (And the shitty computers at school) it ran full speed. That and it runs damn-near everything.

Kinda off subject but wouldn't it be cool to see an NES emu that used "plugins" for all those mappers?

FCEUltra kinda works that way. If you check the source, all of the mappers are handled by different C files.

Nes:

Accuracy: Schpune (even does some mappers better than Nintendulator, waits for Quietust to explode)
Performance: Schpune (only need about a 500MHz processor to run it at full speed), NNNesterJ, NESticle (seriously, how does this not make the list?)

SNES:

Accuracy: I'm gonna guess BSnes, although I don't know for myself to be 100% certain. I'm just going on documentation.
Performance: Zsnes v1.36, Zsnes v1.42

Genesis:

Accuracy: Gens PLUS! (Blows Gens away)
Performance: KGen, although the sound has a chance to crap out after a while.

Default Re: Snes & Nes: Best emus for performance & accuracy

Genesis/SegaCD/32X:

Accuracy: I'd go with Kega Fusion on all fronts. The accuracy really is phenominal.
Performance: KGen98 is supposed to be even better than Genecyst in this area, but Generator actually has a dynamic recompiler which might push it even further ahead. But for all of the above systems, Gens or Gens Plus! will probably be a better balance.

Game Boy/Game Boy Color:

Accuracy: Sort of a two-way tie between BGB and KiGB. KiGB is supposed to run some PD ROMs that don't work on a real GB/GBC or BGB, but BGB fails on some commercial ROMs that KiGB doesn't. Either is great really.
Performance: Neither of the above is a slouch, but one of the ancient emulators like Gameboy 97 or a high-performance build of NO$GMB is probably the fastest overall.

NeoGeo:

Accuracy: MAME, of course.
Performace: NeoRAGE or NeoRAGEx really are very fast.

Master System:

Accuracy: MEKA probably takes this.
Performance: BRSMS can hit full speed on a 486.

PlayStation:

Accuracy: ePSXe. No contest really.
Performance: Possibly VGS, but ePSXe might beat it with the right plugins and settings.

Nintendo 64:

Accuracy: R. Belmont would probably say none, but Project64 has done the best in my eyes.
Performance: Corn really destroys everything, but you'll have to fall back on UltraHLE Alpha or UltraHLE 2064 if you have Windows 2000/XP.

Game Boy Advance:

Accuracy: VisualBoyAdvance. The latest beta was really good over here.
Performace: NO$GBA is blindingly fast.

Man, Kawaks is nearly as fast as NeoRage and much more accurate. And loads of features.

Well I haven't tried either recently. Mainly because I have Windows XP now and NeoRAGEx doesn't actually work on that.

Hrm. NeoRage toasted both MAME(expected) and Kawaks on my laptop.

Granted, it's an ancient beast, so that's probably why, but I was still surprised NeoRageX runs as well as it does. Full speed with slight slowdown at times. Kawaks didn't have anything on that.

As for the question, for NES i'm partial to NEStopia, but it's not the fastest solution. That would be either FCEUltra or nesticle.

and Genecyst/Kgen98 are probably the fastest Genesis emulators you'll find around. don't know about their accuracy though, but they'll run well on older hardware.

There's a hack for that. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif> If you're interested I could be persuaded to look for it...I have it backed up on one of my archive DVDs.
