GameStone's Emulator Recommendations

All Emulator links listed in this section are Microsoft Windows based emulators and have been tested with Windows 7 64bit, if you have an older or newer OS they may or may not work, some have 32bit and 64bit versions so make sure you download the correct version for your operating system, while 32bit works fine on a 64bit system, 64bit programs do not work on 32bit systems..

Some of the emulator links also contain other OS releases, ie.. Apple Mac, BeOS, Linux, Wii etc... I've not tested any of these as I don't have access to any of these systems.

There are many other emulators available for the various systems but these are the only ones I've tested and the Gradius related games play fine on these.

If more than one emulator is listed for each system then the top listed one is the favourite one to test first.
