I - Introduction

Do you like old games? Are you sick of Triple A companies releasing overhyped 60 dollar titles with day 1 Patches and DLC? Are you dirt poor? Do you think Darth GayBen is responsible for the necrotic rot of the entire gaming industry? Are You bored to death? Would you rather blow a load of hot lead through your cranium than play yet another Koala Doody?

If you answered "Yes" to any of theses questions, then this guide and it's contents are for You. And maybe even if you didn't say yes, you may still get some use out of this thing. I certainly did.

In this guide I will assist You how to create, set up and play your own Retro Gaming collection with entirely free and (mostly) legal software. You can download them in a neat little toolbox I prepared for You or You can get them yourself from their designated mothersites. Furthermore You will find 3 Step-by-Step instructions with illustrations how to use everything You find here, Some overall advice on games and of course all the source material I drew this from over the last month if You wish to look it up yourself.

How I came to make this compilation

I myself knew of the existence of Emulator technology since about 2007. At the time I was not into it for a lack of interest in 16 Bit Era Games as I regarded them as outdated. The whole concept of playing old console games on Computers seemed highly sketchy to me and even if i wanted to at the time, I had zero knowledge how to deal with it and was scared off by the potential problems with the law. I basicly ignored the whole emulation scene for the next decade, occasionally watching videos about old games on Youtube.

All this changed around the end 2016 when I heard that Nintendo was about to re-release an old Console, a new edition of the 1986 NES, a big game collection in an authentic console case with a new oldschool controller. I was curious about the thing, but my ambition was initially stumped for my own lack of love for the system and it seemingly being limited to its 30 title library. I never ended up acquiring one due to the thing being in short supply and the merchandise falling victim to greedy resell scammers.

Unexpectedly I ended finding a certain Retro Gaming Channel in late 2017 that informed me about the impeding release of yet another new re-release System, The SNES Mini. This one I became genuinely interested in and thankfully the production supply was higher and less pestered by scammers than it's predecessor. I caught wind that people managed to hack the NES and I expected it would only be a question of time until the same would be achieved for this version. To my luck I ended up getting one of these MINI SNES' gifted, got into roiding up my machine shortly after and eventually all this culminated in putting together this bulk of text.

But thats enough about that. Before you fall into a Coma lets get right into the meat.

II - Emulators and Launch Box

Before we get started I'd like to mention something of great importance:

ORDER

I strongly advice You download all the Emulators You need and ROMs you want to play beforehand.

Construct a clearly labeled and easyly accessable directory of Retro folders so that you can find all your Data swifly when You need it.

The better You do this, the less problems You will have later on. Take your time with it. You will thank yourself later.

A clear file regiment is half the work done.


A word on the Emulators themselves and Launchbox

Emulators are privately produced software You use to run your old console games on. They imitate the related mothersoftware and give You an opportunity to enjoy almost any system on pretty much any device that is currently around. Emulation on PC is of course the most common and easiest to do. You can download these programs on the sites of their related creators and often also on places who offer ROM-Files for download.

It is close to impossible to cover every existing Emulator with just one guide, all of them look and work slightly different, but they all have one thing in common: The goal is to play games and most of them work straight out of the box without further instructions needed. You start them up, slap in the ROM and there You go.

For the purpose of this guide I will stick with the Super Nintendo Emulator SNES9X and a piece of free Software called "Launchbox". Launchbox is entirely optional for the use of Emulators, however it will give you the opportunity to equip your ROM Collection with a neat looking overlay that enables You to play your Classics in a connected HUB with the graphical flair of something you can compare to STEAM. With that said, let's get going.

Click here for an illustrated guide > https://imgur.com/a/tJ2P5

1. Decide what System(s) You want to play.
2. Download all the Emulators, Games and (if you wish) Launchbox.
3. Build a good folder structure for your new files.
4. Unpack all ROMs and install all Emulators You desire.
5. Start Your Emulator, Check the Screen and Sound settings for functionality and Map your Controller (if you have one) or Keyboard buttons, so You can play games. **

Your Emulator Games are now ready to play. Go further ahead to make it look nice.

5. Install Launchbox and start it.
6. Launchbox will greet you with a Wizard to install Games for the first time.
Summon this Install wizard via the Tab Tools > Import > ROM Files.
7. Follow the onscreen instructions carefully so You don't mess up.
8. Select a whole Folder OR a couple of ROM Files You want to upload.
Make sure to only add files that are able to run on THE SAME Emulator.
9. Select the Platform You want to play on from the dropdown menu.
For this guide we use the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
10.Choose the Emulator you want to play on. For the guide I pick SNES9X.
If you don't already have the Emulator You need, Launchbox will offer you to find download links for it.
11.Select the directory path to .EXE File of the Emulator of your choosing from Your gaming Folders.
12.If you want you can now add extra lines to the booting commands of the Emulator like "-fullscreen".
13.If your ROM Files are in order, proceed. If they are still in Zip Folders add a checkmark at "[x]Extract Rom Archives before running".
14.Launchbox will now ask you if you want to copy, move or leave the ROM Files of the games you are uploading. Pick what you want.
15.You will now be asked if you want Metadata for your games. This is optional, but enhances the Utility of the Software.
16.Next Up you will be asked How Much Artwork you want for your Library. This is one of the main purposes of this Software. If you have enough Memory Space, proceed. Keep in mind, more checkmarks mean more Download time. All downloads are done automatically, you can change minor errors later via edits. I recommend you download at the very least the Box front art.
17.You will now be offered to upload additional Content from EmuMovies to your Launchbox. This requires a free account and is optional.
If you like Extras as Game Movies or Music consider a look. Otherwise, proceed.
18.Launchbox will now ask you if you want to change any last-minute custom options on your Rom Files before uploading. Read them and decide.The default checks are usually sufficient.
19.You will now get a list of all Games you are going to upload, File directory path included. Look shortly if everything is complete, then Proceed.
20.Launchbox will now upload all your Game Files & Emulators as well as download all Metadata and Art to your Library.
Please be patient. This process can take between a couple of minutes and several hours depending how many Games and much Data has to be handled.
21.Launchbox will send you a textbox with a sound notification when it is finished processing. Do some sample testruns afterwards to see if everything works as intended.

Congratulations!!!

You now have a working Retro Emulator Station with HUB on your Computer! Feel free to add as many additional Systems and Games as Your Machine can handle.

III - MINI SNES Modding

Click here for an illustrated guide > https://imgur.com/a/aj7Yn

1. Download Hakchi.
2. Download Retroarch with cores (optional but recommended).
3. Unpack the Zips.
4. Prepare your Game Folder with .SMC Rom Files.
5. Start Hakchi (look out for the exe file with the NES controller icon)
6. Pick a 1 of the 4 offered console versions (SNES EU/US)
7. Connect your MINI SNES with your Computer via the USB plug
8. Turn the Mini SNES on.

+++ IMPORTANT +++

Before You do anything else with your PC or console, it is important to follow a major security measure. In case something goes horrible wrong with your system or you accidently destroy something, You need to do the following as a back up to reset the software on your System.

9. Hakchi will now synchronize with your Mini SNES. Follow the Onscreen instructions. (Hold the RESET Button for about 5 seconds before letting go during Synchronization.)

Proceed with the Synchronisation & dump the Kernel with the source code of you Mini SNES. Retrieve the Kernel dump from your Hakchi folder, make a copy of it and take it a place where it is secure. (Or better yet, Email the file to yourself!)

10. To Rearrange your Ingame Library on the Console, Hit the Tab Settings - Pages/ Folder Structure. Pick an Organisation Format and change the amount of games per page if you wish. Keep it below 30 to avoid errors. This should solve Error 7.

11. (Optional) If you want to Install the Retroarch Drivers for other Emulators, now is the time for that. You can also add additional Mods, if you wish. I recommends the Extra Space and the Reset Combo Mod. Make sure that Hakchi DOES NOT save the Emulator cores as games, but as MODS. It wont recognize them otherwise.

Open the MODULES Tab > Install Extra Mods > Drag the HMOD Files in there > add checkmarks to all Mods you wish to install > Hit OK > Synchonize your Mini SNES.

12. You can now add new Games to your Library via Rom Files. If you Right Click on Games, Hakchi will look up Boxart via google for You, or You can choose Box Art yourself. You can also alter the Game Name and Data on it, if you wish.

Keep in mind that your Mini SNES has a limited accessable memory. You should never use more than 50% of your accessable space. Using Save Files and Save States with so many games costs a lot of memory. Also, newer games (especially from other consoles) chew up a lot of Bytes as well. Pay attention and dont get greedy. Only add games you are personally interested in.

13. If you Add Non-SNES games or encounter files that dont run on the MINI-SNES Hardware, edit the COMMAND LINE in the game Options. Add the line " –retroarch" at the very end. Make sure that you have a suitable core for the System Installed you wish to play. Hakchi will now run an emulator on your Mini-SNES in place of the original hardware. SNES9X is recommended for faulty Super Nintendo games. This usually solves Error 8.

To Enter the Emulator Menu In-Game Hit Select+Start.

14. If you have added all games, mods, box art and Extras you wish to. Synchronize your MINI SNES for a last time to save all your changes.

Exit Hakchi, shut down your console, unplug the USB from your PC and reattach it to your TV. Do a testrun to see if everything works.

IV - Retro Fangames

Click here for an illustrated guide > https://imgur.com/a/UaV53

There have been one a many games released over the years. Some of them were lucky enough to flourish their own community of dedicated fans to make new and exciting content for them.

With this short guide I will explain to You how you can connect yourself to this stream of new Content. This works both for PC Emulators and MINI SNES. It gives You access to a theoretically endless hoard of new Retro Games.


Why can't I find play-ready fangames?

This has technical and legal reasons. Big web Communities like romhacking.net are forbidden to host Game Files of licensed games or to give spotlight to software that has been created by altering the source Code of such. Hosting and Supply of Game Roms is a whole can of worms on its own, but it is sufficient to say, you wont see any websites giving these games out by themselves (for long).


Where can I get the Fangame files?

You make them yourself. Literally. This is how you do it:

1. Find out what game your Fanhack is based on.
2. Get a working ROM File of the Base Game you desire.
3. Make a copy of the base game (for security reasons, some patchers use it up)
4. Download suitable Patching software for the game you want
(romhacking.net and others usually offer those)
5. Download the Fangame Romhack you want and find the patching file
6. Open the Patching Software.
7. Put in the Base Game ROM
8. Select the designated Fangame Patch File
9. Apply the Patch
10. The Patching Software will now produce a new, genuine ROM File for You.
11. Open a related Emulator for the Base Game and check if the New Rom File works.

This is a little tough if you have never tried that before, but it soon becomes second nature. Be careful though, some Romhacks end up being faulty due to patching errors or poor coding. This can always happen. After all, those were made by civilians, not professionals.

Never expect a Fangame to work straight away and always keep a copy of the mother File. Test different patching Software if you have to. And if you are lucky and the Creator was worth his salt, You get a shiny new game for yourself to play! Thats about it. Good Luck!

Hint: It is usually a very good sign if people bothered to make Box Art or even a physical reproduction cartridge for a fan game. Chances are that is not only is actually good, but the code is stable enough to run without major problems.

V - SNES Recommendations

According to Game Collectors, Retro Enthusiasts and the fine people on the Internet the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is a contender for the best Nintendo console, and dare I say even the best Console of All Times. 27 years after it's release, a gallery of almost 1.500 game titles, a flourishing second hand market and fan support to this day this is hardly surprising.

You can think of that statement what you will, but I myself am inclinded to agree. Although I am willing to admit that my opinion on the subject might be more than a little bit biased with this System being the only one being in my possession at the time aside from older Nintendo consoles and an Atari.

After I unexpectedly received a Mini Super Nintendo as a gift for Christmas 2017 and over 2 Decades of not playing any SNES games whatsoever I can say without a doubt that many of these games have aged like a fine wine. I feel at peace when I play them, as if they had returned something to me that time, age and modern video games had ripped from my heart. Sounds maybe very cheesy but this is the best I can describe it.

Since I was around at the time when the SNES was a thing I played a decent chunk of these games when they were new. Therefore I think its appropriate that I give some general specific recommendations about the Do's and Dont's of this machine. Since these Emulators and even the Mini SNES itself are not bound by physics, don't let that limit You if you want to try out exotic titles, of course. (I am only judging you secretly for it.)

What to look out for

The Super Nintendo was not just a great console, it was also the Golden Age for more than a few Companies that made games for it. If you ever wanted to personally witness peak performance Nippon Programming at the Height of its collective career, This is probably the best Opportunity You will ever get in your life.

Titles from the following Developers and Publishers have made the machine as great as it is. Almost all of their releases were even at the time considered modern classics.

Nintendo - The best chef in the kitchen also owns the restaurant.
RareWare - The Donkey Kong reboots and their incredible graphics engine
HAL Laboratory - for Kirby, Smash Bros and general Ball themed games
Intelligent Systems - they later made Paper Mario and Smash Football
Konami - Besides Castlevania they made some of the finest action games
CAPCOM - Excellent Run & Gunners as well as fighting games
Squaresoft - perhaps the biggest RPG makers, even during this period
ENIX - Squares Rival and excellent Action RPG designers on their own
BLIZZARD - Yes, THAT Blizzard. before they became famous they were cool
NAMCO - The company that now owns Digimon, Pacman and Dark Souls
Hudson Soft - the people behind Bomberman
Iguana Entertainment - who later made the Turok Games
IREM - hardly ever saw better Space Shooters

What to be aware of

There are some things you need to consider before getting started. False expectations can lead to unwarranted disappointment, so get the biggest of those monkeys off your back.

Processing Power - All Memes and Marketing from Sega Aside, the SNES is in fact objectively slower than it's competitor. While this isn't that much of a deal breaker in most games, it can lead to issues with Racers, Shooters and Beat 'em Up's.

Ports and Sister Games - The SNES has an overall great library of games, there were however some titles that were never released on it. Some were complementary pieces for handhelds, some were released on competitor consolers as completely Original Titles. Check on those to support your system with quality games. Some of them are even better than on the Super Nintendo, no shame in playing those.

Roleplaying Games - Even when compared to today the SNES had a vast, sprawling library of RPG games, including turn based, real time and strategy titles. However, One of the biggest beasts is not here: Pokemon. There are no Pokemon games on the system, that was after the Systems lifespan. If you still have an itch for a Pokemon-esque game, take a look at the Dragon Quest Series and Robotrek. If you got to have a Pokemon game, use an Emulator and Play Silver from 2001 or the Leaf Green remake from 2004.

Licensed Games - Licensed Games based on other Media have a generally bad reputation. For very good reasons. Many of those games are cheaply produced uninspired cash grabs from studios who could not make a fun game if their life was on the line. Every now and then there is a beautiful flower growing out of this dungpile. Keep a look out for those. Generally speaking, Take Disney over Warner, DC Over Marvel, Star Wars Over Star Trek and ignore anything else out of Hollywood. If the AVGN made a review about it, you probably don't want to play it.

Controller - Good Periphery hardware is the hallmark of good design and quality craftsmanship. The Super Nintendo Controller is no exception to that, to the point where sheer shape of the thing has become a symbol for gaming in itself. If you choose to play on PC and want to enhance your experience, i strongly recommend that you make a small investment and buy a USB Reproduction controller, (if you dont already have one.) You can get decent ones for less than 10 Euros each and they will make it worth your while.

Missing Genres - There were some kind of specific games that simply did not work in a 16 Bit Environment, be it for the technical limitations or by design. Some of them simply worked out a lot better on later Console generations. There are no FPS or Stealth games here. Racing Games and Flying Simulators were just out of diapers. And Strategy Games worked way better with a mouse. Someone attempted to make a DOOM Mod, but it was simply terrible. That's just how it is.

Sports Games - Sports games are much like Licensed Games. Quite a lot of them are just in their for the revenue selling big names. Personally, I was never too thrilled about them unless they had a twist that made them unusual, but that is just me. Doesn't mean they are all terrible though. There are legitimately good Sports Games. Sadly, If you played on of them for a certain Sport, you played them all. My advice is, find the branch leader of the sports You like and stick with them.

How do I get a PS4 controller to work on an NES emulator, and have certain touchpad gestures perform macros?

I have no personal experience with Sony or Microsoft console Periphery whatsoever.

Assuming Your controller is otherwise functional and You are using the FCEUX NES Emulator from the Toolkit, follow the steps as pic related.

Every Emulator has of course a different interface, so this procedure will vary depending on the program. Look out for the tags "Input, Mapping, Controller, Game Pad, Configure" etc. and you should usually be successful with little effort.

In Regards to touchpads or macros I can give no advice at all. I dont think most Emulators work with either of those. Consider contacting the Developers of the Emulator in questions or read up on a FAQ to learn more about this.

I'd like to announce hereby that I have submitted a Databank Update for the Retro Gaming Folder today.

Besides the existing content You will now also find:
~ 80 Nintendo 64 Game Files (as ROM's, circa 1,5 GB)
- an additional N64 Emulator, Project 64 (New Software from 2017)
- Update for the new Launchbox Next BETA (~180 MB)

Since the rumors of Nintendo releasing a Mini N64 Classic in the next 6 - 24 months persist, I figured this would be a good addition to the gallery, in case (You) plan to buy one of these and wish prepare to an Update to your personal hardware. These games are especially relevant if you enjoy Action Adventures, Racers, FPS or Fighting Games. Hope you will put them to good use!

Please keep in mind that the 64 Bit games are more difficult to run than most of the other Games I Offered here before, so please be mindful of errors. I Playtested every single game file and can confirm that over 90% run without any problems whatsoever out of the "box" (on a Computer when used with the Project 64 Emulator, which I do recommend for usage). Additional knowledge for Emulator Plug-In's can be helpful, but is not required to run most of this stuff.

I may or may not end up creating a gallery for the Game Cube some time in the near future. Should this be the case, I will post a notice.

Alright, time for another Update I suppose.

Due to some provider sided changes to my MEGAsync account I had to do some redecorating to accomodate the folders to the smaller cloudspace. After preparing the files for this event for the past 2 weeks, I think I did reasonably well and argueably crammed more games for in less space in than ever before. But have a look for it yourself. c:

Heres the notes:

- added a Nintendo DS Emulator
- added extra support files to run the Dolphin Emulator
- added ZIP Software (to decrypt the new files properly)
- Removed ALL previous game ROM's
- added ~1.250 Game Boy Games, ~1.900 NES Games, ~1050 SEGA Genesis Games, ~2000 SNES Games & ~1000 Game Boy Color Games (In Total circa. 7.000 unique games)
- All Game Roms are sorted by Language (Japanese/English) and alphabetical order
(dublicates, demos, prototypes, Revisions, Samples, Unlicensed Games, Pirated Games etc. have been removed)
- Added a Folder with ~30 Modded Games (mostly SNES)
- TOTAL Download Size ~3,5 GB

For playing I recommend a Nintendo Wii USB adapter (http://archive.fo/89e3s), who I can confirm also works with SNES Mini controllers and most likely also Wii U pro and NES Mini controllers. Got mine shipped from Japan in ~2 weeks.

As already mentioned due to cloud limitations I had to removed all game files that go beyond 16bits. If you are looking to play those, I do recommend checking Emuparadise for the Comprehensive Collection Lists from NO INTRO (http://archive.fo/dsmTR). No Intro is a certified ROM Librarian who verifies software for reliable ROM sites such as Vimms Lair. He is also recommended by Retro Gaming Youtubers. For Translation Patches of Japanese Games and Mods please consult Romhacking.net (http://archive.fo/SN1m9)

I would have loved to add the 6 Volume N64 Gallery and the 7 Volume GBA Gallery, but until Megasynch changes its mind or i find another valid file distribution service, this will have to do.

Hope You will put this Update to good use. This is without a doubt the most sourceful library of games I wa sever able to redistribute thanks to the Efforts of NO INTRO. Those are in all likely more games than a single man can play in a lifetime. Please keep in mind that these lists are completely uncurated as far as game quality is concerned, so feel free to eject titles (You) consider unworthy. (∩✧ω✧)⊃━☆゚.*<卐3

Additional Notes on Gen 4/5 Emulation:

If You are interested in playing Game Cube and Wii Games, please see this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPy0VBV5Q0Y

Please keep the System requirements for the Dolphin Emulator in mind. - http://archive.fo/t7bBR

I myself have a regular office notebook, so I cant really use it. This things eats a lot of resources, even on minimum requiresments. A gaming computer is recommended for high end Emulation. Downloading a GC/Wii Rom from a site takes about 30 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the game. Also please be aware that there a lot more work and complexity invovled with this system (which are still being worked on), so with playing these you are bound to encounter flaws.

I took my sweet time for this Update after i was done upgrading my NES Mini, but I think It'll be worth it. This Load is a lot more refined than the last ones. Of course, the Super Nintendo is still the main emphasis, but i am sure you will appreciate the variety, especially if you were looking for some translated Japanese titles.

Removed all previous files and replaced them with Players Choice Titles recommended by SNES Drunk, the Launchbox Community Ratings and the Romhacking Net Database. Excluding the Japanese Translation and Romhacks every Title has a Community Rating of AT LEAST 3/5 Stars, often better.

CONSOLES
~ 270 SNES Titles PLUS ~ 60 Translated Japanese Games + a dozen full game Romhacks
~ 120 NES Titles
~ 60 Nintendo 64 Titles
~ 330 SEGA Mega Drive Titles

HANDHELDS
~ 100 Game Boy Titles
~ 70 Game Boy Color Titles
~ 170 Game Boy Advance Titles

ALSO includes
Updated Software for
- the Launchbox NEXT Hub
- the recent SNES Mini Classic Tool
- 6 different kinds of Romhacking Software
- a free Zipping Tool

TOTAL Size
2,3 GB worth over 1.000 handpicked games on 7 Systems

As some of you will know, Emuparadise got sued by Nintendo for 12 Million Dollars, Downloads are no longer available as of this year.
Unfortunately, The Nintendo Switch and shakey Online service still struggle to properly curate the vast majority of the titles included and beyond here. For all your recent Emulator needs i recommend Vimms Vault and Romhustler for further usage. Vimm recently finished their PS1 Library and is now erecting a Sega Dreamcast Database.

Also I am Currently contemplating on modifying a 3DS Game Boy and a Sega Flackback (aka the Mega Drive Classic). I dont think I will write a guide on those, but I may or not may Do some short posts about them If i tackle those.

Hope You will enjoy the contents of this one. c:

Is this as good as the Soulja Boy Console?

Considering that the main product in his line is some Android based Rasberry Pie Ripoff from China that he resells for 200% the profit after he slapped his initials on them, I*d like to think it surpasses him by a considerable margin.

There is in fact a conker game within the library, in the section for SNES hacks
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3346/

a highly rated romhack of Link to the Past with an Original storyline including the Squirrel.

If you were looking for the N64 game, You can find a download link here:

I omitted this title on purpose. In my eyes its an overrated game and does not have much going for it outside of the prophanity and the gore. Theres better alternatives available, especially on the same platform (which I included in the collection). The Teddiz were nice, tho. Still, I find it regrettable the developer went down this road instead of creating a more traditional action adventure.

>>88083

Some months ago heard of this Software, but never used it yet. I might include a copy of it in the future once i know how it works, but since i dont really play the same game back to back several times, I've not felt a need for such a tool yet. Maybe in the future.
