Alright. Well there has been some scepticizm on whether or not I should post this egg. I say, #%!@ it. I just wanted to contribute to the scene because I used to be a HUGE fan of emulators and such. I hope you enjoy my egg.

Alrighty well here goes.

Emulators are programs used to "emulate" something. Hence the name, emulators. Well someone came up with the great idea to emulate videogame platforms for computer enjoyment :D There are tons of different emulators out there, and today I’ll show you how to set up 2 different kinds; Nintendo64, and a GameBoy Color/Advanced. I’ll split this egg up in to 2 different sections N64, and GBC. I will be doing N64 first, so if you want to read just the handheld emulator section, just skip down to section 2.

NOTE:Before downloading ANY ROM, make sure that you have a legal copy of the original game (cartridge in this case) Any other downloading is to be considered illegal and can be punished by the law.

Nintendo 64
This section consists of the process of setting up the actual emulator, and then playing the downloaded ROMs.

First what we are going to have to do, is download the emulator. We can’t exactly play ROMS without an emulator...Right?
The emulator that I use in the egg is the best in my opinion. It has a great GUI and good GFX and audio.
You can get "Project 64" from here.
Thats the one I will use, but in the future if you want to browse for another emulator, you can always go here
Or just search google for a lil while.

Once you are done downloading, just start it up and install it with the standard settings. Maybe just install it to a folder on your desktop ;D

Alright, now that we have our emulator, we can start to download some ROMS. REMEMBER that if you do not physically own a copy of the game that you are downloading, it is illegal. Fortunately I own a N64 and a couple of games, and I will be using Mario 64 in this egg. Again, I head out to for my ROMs. Along the left hand side, you will see a little link that will say Roms (it’s underneath "Features")

Go ahead and click that. It will then take you to a screen that lists a bunch of different systems. Go ahead and click on the system you want your roms for the system you want.(in this case Nintendo 64)


Now, what this website did is that they organized the ROMS alphabetically. Go to which ever letter (or number) your game starts with, and then click it. I will be clicking on "S" for Super Mario 64 (TEH BEST GAME EVAH)
I dont think I really need to put up a pic for this one lol.

Alrighty, scroll down a little bit and find your rom.....
Found it? YAY!

It might take a while because it is a fair size of data. Once it is done downloading, extract it to you desktop for easy access.

Go ahead and start up your emulator (Project 64). It will bring you to a screen that doesnt look like anything special. Well go to file and click Open ROM.


Now begins the grand search for the ROM.
Just do the normal computer browsing and go to the same directory as you saved your ROM. Mine is here.


Double click it and your ROM should start up.


And that about sums up the N64 Section. I personally don’t know how other emulators work but I prefer project 64 over all.


Ooohkay. Well It’s pretty much the same process as above, but if you just skipped down to this part that means I have to explain it all over again. LMAO.
I get all my emulators from just because it’s awesome.
In this egg I will use Visual Boy as my emulator. You can get that here.
It doesn’t get anymore basic that that. Although you do need Winzip to extract it after you download. Just go ahead and extract that to your desktop :D

Off to the ROM part.
REMEMBER: that if you do not physically own a copy of the game that you are downloading, it is illegal.
Well again, go to and on the left handside underneath "Featured" is ROMS.


Now they have it organized by system. Since we are working on GameBoy Colour’s, we can go ahead and go to that section underneath "Handhelds" because 6ix wants Pokemon.


After you click on that, the ROMs will be organized alphabetically. So just click the letter that your game starts with. Im going to click on P because I want to download Pokemon Silver. Click on P and look at the table of contents. Looks like we have to go to the second page. After you go to the second page, scroll down and it should be the 2nd one down.
^^^Thats the Pokemon Silver Download. To get to that, just click the File01 and then click the USA mirror.

After that is downloaded, extract it to your desktop for easy access.

Woot, all the downloading is finally done. Ready to play Pokemon? Well I am, so lets go ahead and start up Virtual Boy. It should look something like this.


Now to open up your ROM. First, go to FILE, and click Open.


Now just browse for your game.
I found it.


After that just click open. And wala, you are now playing Pokemon =D


I spent alot of time on this. Positive feedback is always welcome, and so is constructive criticism. Rate and comment :D
