    can we talk about emulators on here?

    hey, is it okay to talk about emulators and the whole shebang? i'm referring to historic ones like snes and n64, obviously nothing that kills nintendo's current money makers.

    i searched the rules for "emulators" and saw nothing

    well the only rules about "piracy"

    Linking to pirated/illegal software/material: Don't do it. It will be removed and repeat offenses will result in a ban.

    So I suppose we can talk about emulator? Also emulator is legal, and the emulator website don't have any roms (I think?)

    In the past, the mods have warily allowed general discussion about emulation, as long as no links or how-to instructions are posted.

    I believe people may have done it, but obviously there would be no 2nd screen functionality. You'll just have to Google it.

    As far as discussions about emulation is concerned, we've become more lax over time about our initial policy of completely banning them from the forums as we know many of our members know about the technology.

    That being said you're free to discuss emulation as long as it's done in a general manner with no specific instructions being provided on how to do so, linking to said types of instructions, or providing the means to access emulation software through the forums.

    Of course since this is a grey area of the rules, we do reserve the right to close threads or delete posts in the threads as we see necessary.

    Y'know, it would seem to me Max is either serious or clickbait happy when he's around here...

    Would wwf no mercy be considered completely legal since the developer and publisher don't exist anymore?

    That's the latest game I am emulating. Well the only one actually. I have banjo kazooie on my phone but I don't play it. If I feel like playing some banjo I'll load it on my chromebook since I got a n64 emulator running on it perfectly

    I don't have Xbox one to play banjo kazooie *shrug*

    Doh! I totally misread that. Yeah, you can use a Pro Controller on your PC. But that specific question has nothing to do with emulation, so I don't see why I can't post this link to a USB adapter on Amazon to do that. People legitimately use Pro Controllers for all of their PC games.

    Most of the games I emulate I would happily buy were they to be made available through legitimate channels.
