Quote from: Replies From View on June 27, 2020, 06:42:22 PMI have OpenEmu emulator for my mac and an original megadrive controller from eBay, and I can download rom files for free of any megadrive games I want. Amongst other systems OpenEmu also emulates Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Game Gear, Master System, NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Playstation 1 and Game Cube.Out of interest why is the emulation route so anathema for some people? Is it that you don't feel people should get this stuff for free, or do you like collecting the physical consoles themselves?

Quote from: madhair60 on June 27, 2020, 10:03:31 PMNo, they're ace. You can hack them easily, pop all the games you want on there (with an attractive menu, boxart, etc) and then have a wee replica of the system with the original pads. Near as damnit to the original without the expense of, well, creaky old Mega Drives.

Quote from: oustropique on June 28, 2020, 02:44:36 PMIf I'm remembering rightly from an Ashens video, only Japan's Mega Drive Mini got the six button pads, but you can probably buy a generic usb one and use it on the Mini easily enough at this point. I was thinking about this official Sega one. Price is a bit steep, though.

Quote from: madhair60 on June 29, 2020, 08:59:53 PMThe aesthetic and nostalgia is more important to me than the convenience. Obviously I could just boot up an emulator, but having a parade of wee replica consoles with all my favourites loaded onto them and the original controllers is perfect for me.
