My GameRoom Virtualized – A Tribute To Emuunlim – Part 1 – Atari 2600
#Preservation #Launchbox #Openemu
Is it possible to virtualize your entire gameroom? Well I’d say up to PS2/PS3, Wii/WiiU and a little Xbox360 it’s actually quite possible these days. While I prefer to use the original hardware there’s something to be said about using emulation: preservation purposes as well as ease of use.
On my Emulation RIG in the gameroom I have installed Launchbox which is a very easy to use flexible frontend in two flavours: a desktop version and a box-box version that allows acces to all the games in a more console-like interface. Emulators can integrate seamless in the frontend. A must have for PC owners.
On the Mac side of things there’s OpenEmu that basically is a frontend and emulator in one. This also is very easy to use.
and various stand alone emulators that can be integrated in Launchbox

Emulation is no piracy in itself but people can abuse it for piracy. I don’t condone piracy.
