The Beast, The Original, The TYPE-X

The Taito Type X is an arcade system board released by Taito in 2004.  Based on commodity PC hardware architecture, Type X is not a specification for a single set of hardware, but rather a modular platform supporting multiple hardware configurations with different levels of graphical capability. 

They use the Windows operating systems, and for that reason they do not need a special emulator to run on Windows systems. To run on Linux or OSX systems, Wine is required. It is unknown how well they work in Wine.

Tools

Games need a launcher to work. For saving scores, you'll need to use save fixes on a per-game basis, 'Loaders Pack' has fixes for many games. Also, some shmup games for the original Type X need an extra fix.
