ares emulator[edit]

ares isn't mentioned anywhere in this wiki as far as I can tell. It's a descendent of higan and bsnes and boasts great compatibility for many systems such as Super Famicom, SG-1000, Master System, ColecoVision, Neo Geo Pocket, Neo Geo Pocket Color, WonderSwan, WonderSwan Color, or Pocket Challenge V2.

Is there a reason that it's not mentioned in the wiki? I think it could be a great addition to some comparison tables - I myself have no idea if, say, ares should be a recommended SG-1000 emulator, or if it's a better Neo Geo Pocket emulator than higan (the bsnes/higan/byuu/ares family loves to compete with itself after all). Does anybody know anything about this?

(I've posted this in the Neo Geo Pocket emulator talk page because I had no idea where to put this, sorry if I shouldn't have)

I don't think there's a reason for that. You can find it on the Multi-system emulators page. If you want to add it on another page yourself, here's a template below to get started. Luckily for byuu, the emulator is merged with higan now so that doesn't need to included as well. I would recommend to put ares above higan on the table as it's often the more recommended emulator. You can delete the table from this page after. - WebMint (talk) 19:40, 11 October 2021 (UTC)

I can add most of the info to each of the relevant emulator pages, except the last column and the relative order of the table. If I did that, I'd be completely guessing as to whether or not ares is better or worse than other emulators! Especially when it comes to things like PlayStation where ares is only experimental. Maybe I can add a question mark until someone more knowledgeable comes along? - BlaBlaCra (talk) 20:46, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
Okay! I did my best :) BlaBlaCra (talk) 21:46, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
That's good enough. Thank you :D - WebMint (talk) 21:57, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
