Emulators no longer supported by Squarepusher as standalones:
- VBA Next
- FCEU Next
- SNES9x Next
- Genesis Next / Genesis Plus GX
- FBA Next and all other FBA builds
Reasons why the older ports should die and be left in the past:
2.) They contain many bugs and issues that are not present in the RetroArch builds
3.) There is no reason to use something old when the new stuff is much more reliable & gives you a better playing experience.
4.) It creates alot of issues for the developer when users complain of the bugs and issues on ports no longer supported and the RetroArch builds doesn't contain those bugs.
Some of the popular reasons why people use/prefer the older ports have been:
Answer: RetroArch can be split up into Standalone emulators and they can be found here.
2.) I like the menu/frontend in some of the emulators compared to RetroArch. (like in FBAnext)
Answer: While you may prefer the menu, the game compatibility is much better in RetroArch and when playing a Retro game its about the gameplay, not the menus.
3.) I have used RetroArch in the past and I could not get it to work properly.
