Nintendo Game and Watch simulators under Virtual PC

Nintendo Game and Watch simulators under Virtual PC

  • Comments 2

Recently I was contacted by someone who was trying to get some old Nintendo Game and Watch simulators to run under Virtual PC.  These are highly authentic versions of the classic handheld games that I had always wanted when I was a kid.  You can download the simulators for a number of these games from http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Disk/1486/sims.html.  The only thing that you need to do to run these programs under Virtual PC is to download this package: http://www.mame.net/zips/csdpmi5b.zip and run CWSDPMI.EXE before loading the games:

All in all a very cool retro blast :-)

Cheers,

    These websites are all in Italian so you will have to use Google etc. to translate it to English.

    However all games play in English. Some work natively in Windows XP...
  • What about plastic playing cards under Virtual PC?

    Nintendo made plastic playing cards for 100 years before branching out into electronic games. They still do, too.
