View Full Version : Emulation? What is it?

May 4th, 2004, 19:33
I think emulation or emulating is when someone created a game which is a replicat of a game previously brought out on a games consel or different system.

Which means I would be an emulator if I created/replicated a game like turok evolution or any other consel game which worked on the PC.

I think ???

Please tell me if im wrong..

Emulation is making one machine act like another in order to run that machines software or just for the sake of it. What you describe would be making a clone of a game, if you were to make something to make the PC run a console version that would be emulation

Hmmm, you're hardly an 'XBoxLord' if you don't even know what emulation is.

I'm not having a go, its just that I dont think people should give themselve's names that suggest they are something that they aren't.

I think I will change my name to 'PendanticBugger'. *:D

If you don't know what 'Pedantic' means click here-

Maybe you should check out the XBox emulation scene, theres some great stuff available!

Defenstration? You mean throwing things out of a window?

It seems really weird that there's actually a work for that.

defenestration isn't in the English dictionary. * So throw out your yankee-redneck dictionary and get a proper one, so you can speak proper English like what I does. * ;)
