These lists were last updated on 2011-07-02 to include the latest files from Pandora Apps, the File Archive, the Repo, 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 see how you can save space on ROMs, check out the Emulator Compression Support page. To read a usage guide for 15 emulators, download this PDF.

Released emulators

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

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. No compatibility issues, with the possible exception of extremely obscure hardware addons. If preliminary support for another platform is added when the first meets this requirement beforehand, the emulator does not get demoted.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
