I have bought 3 controllers for me and my friends to play games. We've had a lot of fun playing PES 2009 on my computer.

We also had a lot of fun playing Mario Party 3 for N64 (emulator).

I am thinking of installing a GameCube emulator and playing the newest Mario Party on it.

Is this emulation good enough as of yet? And do you have other recommendations for playing with my new controllers?

I am not familiar with GameCube emulation myself, if no one picks up your thread or simply doesn't know the answer, I suggest looking through the forum sections of the three big Gamecube emulators. You could look for screenshots of the game to see if it's graphically in working order with proper speed (hopefully the creator will post his PC specs alongside), or you could find a compatibility thread.

Also, the Search function may help you out a lot here if you do a search on Mario Party. Most Emulators are WIP, so I suggest not getting your hopes up high, but since it's an early title, you may be lucky as well. I hope it's been at least of a bit of help :)

It's pretty good so far. Most games play, some are perfect, others are unfinished, others don't even get in-game.

I'd say it's improving extremely. Most of the games people like run almost smoothly, depending on your computer, that is.
I've seen videos, people can get them running at great speeds with no lag, errors or missing things.
Although my computer is ****e right now, I will get them working perfectly! :p

So, if you own the games and systems and have a powerful computer, I say go for it and get your help from here. This forum helps a lot.

thomasz, I had to delete the link since it was in violation of Ngemu's no spam policy. You might want to brush on on the [rules]rules[/rules] of the forum before you post again, taking note of the no spam policy. :)

Should run on Vista, though you're on your own for the ROMs. GameCube discs are proprietary mini-DVDs with the data written in the opposite direction as normal DVDs, which means you won't be able to read the discs in a normal PC optical drive. There is a way, but it's somewhat complicated and you'll need a broadband adapter for your GC and a copy of Phantasy Star Online. There are plenty of guides floating around Google that explain how this works.
