Ouya Emulation box: how it fairs out

Now yes there are plenty of guides talking about emulators you can get for the ouya, I have seen a few, but I am not going to copy paste their works because this isn't a guide just a look at my experience with it.
I have been able to emulate many many systems, but some emulators required my ouya to be rooted inorder to install googleplay, now all of the games I have owned in one form or another, and still do own in some way. Now I was able to emulate the atari 2600, master system, nes, snes, megadrive/genesis, comidore 64, Gameboy, Gameboy color, Gameboy advance, n64, nintendo ds, saturn, DOS, PSP, Dreamcast, and Gamegear.

The Problem emulators:

I guess I will start from worst to best....

Sega Dreamcast: I couldn't get one game to even work granted the only emulator for the system has basically been in development hell for a long time, I really am doubting that any work is being done on it to fix any problems with it.

PSP: I got a few games to work with the PPSSPP emulator but it seems to me that it has a lot of problems and couldn't get it to play a single game to work without bugs everywhere, the only games I even got working I didn't want to play....

Sega Saturn: I got a few games to work with Saturn.emu just mostly basic 2d games I got to work, any 3d ones didn't want to work.

nintendo ds:
Plenty of games do work, but there is plenty that don't with the nds4Droid, like a good 1/2 of my games just don't work, which makes me a little upset, like any tony hawk games, nope, metroid prime hunters nope, resident evil deadly silence worked on start up but crashed 1/2 way through the game.

Nintendo 64:

Plenty of games work but most have graphics glitches, some games are completely unplayable like Majora's Mask, and games like smashbro's have frame rate issues at times and all the characters faces are just gone. Its actually funny kinda. But I only used Mupen64 I heard there are better ones out there that you can just sideload. some games wont even run but its more common to have graphical glitches than completely crash

The good emulators

(they still have some problems just no where near as much again worst to greatest)


PS1: Most games work with FPse but the problem with is it requires a lot of setting up, because sony made it hard on emulation software you have to actually go out of your way to get the Bios. Other than that most games work, but I have had trouble with Resident evil 2 crashing randomly. I think it has to deal with mostly the bigger games are they more problems I been having with this one, including ff7.

DOS : requires Rooting to install googleplay store, requires a keyboard hooked up, but other than that everything works. You do have to purchase this one

Snes: SuperGnes has a lot of options, but they took a few out of the ouya version like idk custom controls, now my usb snes controller doesn't even work with it.... Makes me angry that I can't get my snes controller to work with a snes emulator.. other than that it runs perfect.

Gamegear/Master system: MasterGear requires googleplay, You do have to purchase this one too but with little configuration you should be ready to go. Turning off Hardware Acceleration, & Sync Display & lowering Frames to Draw to 80% or lower will cause the game to speed up, run better performance but... You will want to turn on Scale Video& stretch video, this will get rid of a game image buffering probem. You will also want to set a start button since the ouya doesn't have 1 that is compatible with this emulator in the key mapping. Its not a hard setup and this emulator even has netplay to bad it isn't setup with a system like kailera, where you can see what others are playing, you have to type in your friends IP manually, you would think charging $4.99 for a emulator would be to cover the costs.....

NES: EMUya has a bunch of free public domain homebrew games included with it but loading in, has a lot of extra features such as replays and community voting. You can't load in compressed games only the pure rom folder. Image is extremly distorted on most games with rendering issues and sounds are too. You can assign controllers to who is what player instead of playing musical controllers though.

2600/Megadrive/GB/GBC/GBA: .emu emulators All of these use the same menu systems, they all work with all the games I put in them, and they all can find wiimotes. The saturn emulator actually is a .emu emulator but it was a alpha when I downloaded it so that is why its probably broken. All of these are FREE. But are very simple Emulators. Most games are pixel perfect and sounds on the right pitch and beat for the most part.

Conclusion:

I can't stress this enough that the ouya is a good android device, if you are not interested in the games on it then I can tell you how ever that maybe it is not the best choice to emulate on alone, it makes it better to play a game together, with most of these emulators offering some form of multiplayer on a hdmi display device such as a HDTV that is easy to take elsewhere with ease.

Yes you can do it with a laptop as well as some smartphones and tablets but you also have a library of games with controller support and a few exclusives worth at least looking at.
