- Mednafen is great, it has two PCE cores: PCE-Accurate and PCE-Fast, its operated by command line. pcejin is based on an older version of Mednafen's PC Engine core but with a GUI. Linux users should use Mednafen with a GTK GUI.
- RetroArch uses Mednafen's PCE-Fast core.
- MagicEngine only has a free demo available. The full version costs €15 EUR. There is no reason to buy it when there are better free options available.
- Ootake is okay for general purposes.
