These emulators are for use on CFW or LCFW.

The specific emulator versions compatible with the Half-Byte Loader can be found listed on the official site.

Emulators for OFW are meant to run on unmodified firmware, a list for that is also on the HBL forums.

Please note that some emulators may require BIOS files from the original machine, we cannot supply those files.

"Don't use the BIOS option for RACE!PSP. It breaks more things than it fixes e.g. Metal Slug 1st and 2nd Mission, Puyo Pop and Mini Puzzle Bobble all break when the emulator attempts to utilise the NGP BIOS. "
Regarded as the best Neo Geo Pocket EMU.

Nintendo 64

Check the compatibility list.

Nintendo DS

  • NesterJ v1.13 Beta 2 by Rukka -> DOWNLOAD
More compatible (mother 3, etc.).

Sega Game Gear

Often regarded as the best choice, emulates a few other systems as well. Can change the clock rate down, saving on battery life.

Sega Genesis/Sega CD

There's a button bind to change rendering engines. One is faster but not as visually-accurate, while one is more accurate but slower. In the majority of situations, the faster engine is still just fine, only some specific special effects need the accurate one now.

Sega Master System

Often regarded as the best choice, emulates a few other systems as well. Can change the clock rate down, saving on battery life.

Sega Saturn

Sinclair ZX-Spectrum

Super Nintendo (SNES)

Fullspeed on most games with some hacks, will even run Super Mario RPG and Star Fox properly. If a game seems to run slow at parts (and you know it wasn't slow like that on the original SNES, then go into the hacks menu and set it to show rendering passes. If it's more than 0 or 1, then try out some of the hacks, the palette write issue seems to be the most common. Settings are saved per-game, and if you ever change settings to where a game will no longer load (for example some games don't like some rendering engine settings), press SQUARE to override the game's settings with the default ones again.
A viable alternative. See the above entry for info on speedhacks and settings.
