I am looking into making an arcade cabinet and I want to have some games I bought from steam on it as well. The games I want to use are retro style and take up even less ram and processing power than SNES games (I currently want to play probability 0 and VVVVVV, maybe some more eventually).
What emulator should I use to run them? I know I can run them through wine, I tried it on my Ubuntu computer.
Is DOSbox the right emulator for this or should I make my own with wine?
I have quite a bit of programming knowledge (mostly java) and I am used to using Linux operating systems, so I don’t mind doing more complicated tasks to get this working. Thanks!
Well the games I mentioned both should run on the pi. I tried out performance tests on them and they both take less than 200mb of ram and I am using the raspberry pi b which has double. Plus the processor should handle it fairly well since they use the same amount of processing as snes games.
P.S. VVVVVV has a linux version so I could probably play it without dosbox, is there a linux game emulator or something? Is there a linux command line executor in retropie?
