Mednafen PC Engine CD tutorial.

http://www.zophar.net/multiem/mednafen.html

Run once. Download a PC Engine BIOS package from somewhere.

Copy the file Super CD-ROM2 System V3.00 (J).pce (from the bios package) into the emulator's firmware folder, renaming to syscard3.pce.

Drag and drop .cue or .ccd file for your game onto Mednafen EXE.

Shift+Alt+1 to configure player 1's controller. Make sure the controller is plugged in before you start mednafen. Alt+Enter toggles fullscreen.

SNES Mini - 21 games (Nintendo)
NES Mini - 30 games (Nintendo)
Neo Geo Mini - 40 games (SNK)
Genesis Mini - 42 games (M2)
TurboGrafx-16 Mini - about 52 games (M2)

TG16 had a small US library, but here digs heavily into the Japanese library, where it outsold Sega. Including CDs!

Pac-Man for the 2600 disappointed many by showing the limitations of the system. Ms Pac-Man was advertised as "more than Pac-Man with a bow" and is a better port. Recently, homebrewers have improved on Pac-Man using the same 4k memory limit, or doubling it to 8k.

Cony had already made bootleg NES versions of Street Fighter, Fatal Fury and Mortal Kombat. World Heroes 2 NES bootleg is actually a bizarre crossover with Mario, Sonic, Goku, Mike Haggar, Ninja Turtles and others.

Here's 2010's Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril for NES. Known for being unusually hard and frustrating.

"Get 'Em Gary" is an unlicensed NES port of Fix-It Felix Jr ....

Fix-It Felix Jr. was officially ported to the NES for a mini arcade toy. I think this is the same ROM?

Fix-It Felix Jr. was unofficially ported to Sega Genesis and Commodore 64, and to the Atari 2600 as Fix-It Felix Sr.
