A Brief Explaination of Gaming Emulation

An emulator is program that is used to “Emulate” or copy the original consoles from your past. Most people new to emulation might not know what a Rom is so, I will explain. A rom is an image or copy of the original cart or disc. The emulator loads the rom into the program and shazam, you have gaming emulation. That doesn’t include all the coding in the background that goes into that emulation but hey, you get the gist. Emulation without owning the system and the physical carts is illegal. If you run your emulator you should also have your own bios. The bios is the operating system that runs the original console. Windows is an operating system that powers most computers out there. There are various ways to dump your own bios and you are welcome to google them. For example, dumping your Playstation’s bios will require a Dex Drive, a memory card, and a PC computer. It is actually fun and good project for any amount of free time you might have. So what are you waiting for? Go download your favorite console emulator and play some games.
