Yeah I read the whole compatability list sticky, but I still wanna know what Saturn Emulator is the best? I am especially interested in which emulator can support Dragon Force if anyone knows? But yeah, what is the best emulator because I know alot of these are in beta and/or still debugging it.
peace

There aren't any. Some emulate some games better than others. It's a crapshoot.

Well there was that segaB club version of GiriGiri, but that's discontinued, and was Japan only.
Of the other 2, Satourne is French and so what news and updates we do get from it tends to not get posted in a language most people here get. The same is true of SSF, except Japanese instead of French.
Essentialy I havent got a clue how well these two run or even if they are still in development.

just to add to what Kane just said...
basicly try them all. Satourne and SSF are still in development.
you can try those two and you can also try Saturnin.

and finally theres Yabause which seems to have made alot of progress, so check from time to time for its next release.
basicly we have no clue on what emus run what games

Aww dang that sucks. I guess there just isnt as big as a demand as the PS emulators and PS2 ones? Saturn was a good system that was overlooked too often. LOL :(
Thnx for the advice.

Well from all emus i have tried, SFF works the best and runs the biggest amount of games. So far, SSF is the only Saturn Emu with i got Virtua Cop running. Depending on your system, you can reach near full speed on SFF. Worth trying.

Satourne beta shots look good. I believe ckemu is a betatester for it.

SSF I haven't tried. Sounds like a good one to try. :)

*edit - apparantly my cpu isn't supported :/ (amdxp2500+) *

*edit2 - seems that release 0.07 prototype R11 is the last one to support older processors - it's downloadable from ngemu: http://www.ngemu.com/saturn/ssf.php?action=download&req=emu&id=364
Of course, people with a processor that supports SSE2 should just get the latest one :)

Which is like saying Emurayden isn't VGS. It's jsut a hack of the emu I'm talking about.

the hack doesn't seem to differ a lot from the original one anyway, just like with emurayden...

It should run with the next verison if not maybe second one. I remember i tried Virtua Cop on R12. Reached the loading screen at most. R13 made it run like it should. The emulator with every version runs more and more games which is very good.

too bad the old non-sse2 one doesnt have sound. :/
oh, and it's rather slow on an amdxp2500 anyway.
But I'm not in an upgrade mood ;)

The lastest one runs perfectly on my P4 3.0GHz. Well, at least Panzer Dragoon does, it's the only Saturn game I have access to at the moment. :p
