Greetings Sherbros! I have decided that with my bonus in October I would like to build a new PC for my living room. I intend on using it as a media server (smart TVs and Roku boxes on the dumb TVs in the house), occasional web browsing/streaming, but I also want to use it for video game emulation. I'd like to emulate 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, Atari 2600, Atari Jaguar, ColecoVision, Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga, Microsoft XBox, Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo Super NES, Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Sega 32X, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, SNK Neo Geo, and Sony PlayStation 1 (would emulate Wii as well, but I already have a modded Wii with 600 games on it). I'm quite sure these consoles can be emulated by even a mediocre rig, but I'd also like to emulate XBox 360, PS2, PS3, and arcade games. As far as I know the 360 and PS2 have been emulated, but require a pretty powerful machine and I don't know a damn thing about PS3 emulation. Is it reasonable to expect that I can build a machine that will cover at least up to GameCube and PS2 games for less than $1000? Please recommend a build if you have any expertise in this area. Also, I've been doing some reading about MAME to emulate arcade games. I intend on using this program, but I'm wondering what kind of hardware accessories I need and what ones are highly recommended. Can I use just about any USB joystick on MAME? Do I need a double stick setup for 2-player games or can I use 2 single sticks? What about 3 and 4-player games? Could I use a double stick and a (or 2) single stick(s) or would I need a quad stick setup? I really don't want to build an arcade cabinet, so I think it'd be more convenient to just use single joysticks, but I suppose a double joystick could be set on the coffee table for 2 people. How difficult is it to emulate light gun games on MAME? What kind of hardware would I need for that? So I guess I'm just looking for as much advice you can offer and as many questions you might be able to answer. Thanks in advance!
