There are currently four EMUs for SNES, two for NES, Megadrive/Genesis and three for the GBA:
(I excluded ones which can not be exited via a gamepad/controller)
I would like everyone to chime in on which should be “more compatible” than the other(s). I’m looking to find out which emulators I should be using as the default.chdez77076Participant03/21/2015 at 03:08Post count: 66

snes9x-next is the most accurate/compatible snes option (especially if you consider sound emulation), but is only suitable for the Pi 2. It does struggle a bit with some SuperFX games, though.
nestopia is noticeably better than fceu in my experience for nes
genesis-plus-gx should be the best option for both mastersystem and genesis if you have a Pi 2. For the Pi 1 you would want to use picodrive for the genesis.

I have recently had the same problem (figuring out the best choices for emulators for each system). I think it would be great to have some kind of collection in the wiki which lists recommended options (including emulator version) for each platform (Pi and Pi2) and system. I would gladly help working on a list like this, not sure who do talk to about permissions to do this.
Another possibility would be to just use the default values for the new emulator selection mechanism. I am not sure if those are currently just semi-random or follow a specific pattern. Also those can not be system specific as since the SD card images are built from the same source I think…neighbourhoodnerdParticipant03/21/2015 at 14:09Post count: 111
lr-gpsp and Picodrive are my preferred emulators for GBA and Sega respectively.hazza4569Participant03/25/2015 at 21:09Post count: 10
I just did a standard binary based installation for all my emulators – most of them work fine.
I did however get very frustrated with the controller configuration in gpsp as it wasn’t saving at all. because of this I decided to install lr-gpsp, however now it still uses gpsp by default and I’m not sure how to change that. Can anybody help me out?
