These lists were last updated on 2019-02-24 to include the latest files from the Repo, the File Archive, Pandora Apps [deprecated], and the community forums. For other software lists on the wiki, see Software projects and Games.

If different versions of an emulator were released, the listed "release date" is from the most recent one.

Please click on the little squares to sort by different categories.

To read a usage guide for several emulators, download this guide.

Released emulators

Entry colors only denote compatibility and speed; interface and features are not taken into account.

Quality Description
Perfect Emulators with a blue background, for all intents and purposes, work perfectly. Virtually every game runs at full speed, and ones that don't come close. No overclocking required. Practically no compatibility issues, with the possible exception of extremely obscure hardware tricks or addons.
Fantastic Emulators with a green background work very well. A lot of games run great at or close to 500Mhz, though some issues do exist. Little overclocking is required. Compatibility issues are minimum.
Decent Emulators with a yellow background have issues. Some games are playable, and a few do run full speed, but overclocking is typically needed. Compatibility issues may be considerable. This could also represent emulators with great compatibility, but low speed (or vice versa).
Bad Emulators with an orange background do not run well. Few games are playable. Overclocking is mandatory. There may be lots of compatibility issues as well.
Poor Emulators with a red background are worthless. No games are playable at 500Mhz, and you have to overclock very high to see a difference. Full speed is out of the question. Compatibility is likely nonexistent. This is test release territory.
N/A Emulators with a white background do not have enough information about them. Please try them out and add to this page!

If you have tried an emulator which has an uncoloured background, please add the appropriate background colour based on the legend to reflect the status of the emulator. You may add a statement in the notes if you feel that it's necessary.

1 "C" is short for compatibility list. FT = Forum Topic GD = Google Docs W = Wiki page

2 "CS" is short for "Compression Support". The entries denote the formats that can be used to save space on the games. A blank entry doesn't mean "none", it means there's not enough info! Please add more if you can!
