  • Many consoles have a much higher performance than standard PCs, this should be considered if a game with a very high graphics performance is to be emulated. Here you should pay attention to the performance of the graphics card, the processor and the RAM.
  • If a game runs too slowly, changing the resolution can help.
  • If an emulator does not meet your own requirements or does not run satisfactorily on the PC, an alternative emulator should be tried out or the settings adjusted.
