his is where you can download Castlevania ROMs and emulators to play them on. I do strongly suggest that you get the actual games if you can. Emulation can never quite match up to the real thing, but it certainly does have its merits. This site, as it is now, wouldn't really have been possible without it. There are links to some of the emulators' sites so that you may periodically check for updates.


MSX

BlueMSX official site

ParaMSX was my favorite MSX emulator, but I started encountering annoying problems with it. On my journey for a superior emulator, I discovered BlueMSX. It boasts a better, more straightforward interface,and the developers of it seem much more progressive. ParaMSX is ok, but I suggest using BlueMSX if you want optimum performance and a better interface.

Nintendo Entertainment System

Jnes official site

FCE Ultra site

JNES by Jabo is my personal favorite NES emulator. The interface is good; the sound is great, as are the visuals. Unfortunately, it has major issues when it comes to running Akumajou Densetsu, so I suggest FCEUltra as well. Generally speaking, I don't like that one quite as much, but it is still very good, and it plays Densetsu just fine.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System

ZSNES official site

In my opinion, ZSNES is the undisputed Super Nintendo emulator. If there exists a better one, I have not yet come across it. Though be warned, the interface can be a little tricky at first. In the beginning, browsing for the ROM that you want can be sort of a headache, but you'll get used to it. It has many different settings for sound and graphics.

Sega Genesis

I don't emulate too many things for Genesis, so I can't really say too much about Gens in comparison to some others. But this has proven to be a very reliable and straightforward tool, so I endorse it.

Nintendo 64

Project 64 official site

Project 64 is the best N64 emulator there is, so far. Even so, N64 emulation can get sort of shaky for some. The system requirements for running this emulator are pretty high, considering. Don't be too surprised if things don't always sound right or look the way they should. Your computer will need a decent amount of RAM, good sound and graphics cards, and a good processor to get ROMs on this emulator to run proficiently. Don't forget to unzip the ROMs before you load them.

Nintendo Gameboy and Gameboy Advance

Visual Boy Advance official site

No$GBA official site

Instead of presenting different emulators for Gameboy and Gameboy Advance ROMs, I think the best thing to do is just use a GBA emulator to play both. I like the Visual Boy Advance the best, because of all of its selections and ease of use, although recently, Serio has grown particularly fond of the No$GBA because it makes the games much darker. So, if games like Harmony of Dissonance or Aria of Sorrow are too dazzling for your tastes on the VBA, then the No$GBA may be better suited for you.

Also, the VBA's controls don't react well if you make it full screen. I'm not quite sure why that is the case, but thankfully, No$GBA doesn't suffer the same setback. Unfortunately, though, for No$GBA, it has terrible sound if set to 44kHz or even 22kHz when it plays certain sound effects that are actually used as music (i.e. the HoD intro and credits themes) and it cannot play ROMs while they are in their zip folders.
