What is Emulator? Emulator Definition, Emulator Info

An emulator is a piece of software that emulates a system (that is, imitates it in such a way as to be functionally indistinguishable from the original: e.g. entering input/data/software for the original should have the same result as with the real system) on a computer sufficiently more powerful than the original system to make this feasible in real-time. Usually the subject for emulation is a popular but super ceded computer. However, it is possible to create emulations of all kinds of systems, electronic or otherwise. A few years ago, emulators of microcomputers, coin-ops and games consoles became feasible on modern PC hardware.

Emulators recreate other systems and make them compatible with your computer. Video game emulator are most often used to revisit classic games long out of print or systems off the market for decades, they can also be used to modify games or translate them. Recently, classic gaming fans have been able to create new games for using emulator in the systems. The first widely used video game emulator was released by a game-developing company called Bloodlust Software. The emulator, first created in 1997, replicated the original Nintendo Entertainment System and was nicknamed NESticle. Gene cyst emulators are available to download all over the internet, and now have working models that mimic most early game systems. Most emulators are created by reverse engineering, a protected form of technology under the laws of many nations.
