RetroArch is a must for MAME, cause only it's mame2016 core supports later romset 0.174 (mame4droid emulator supports only very old 0.139u romset).
yeah, but that core is very slow in android emulating many boards, unless you play very old mame games. CPs3, PGM, Cave games etc are slow with that core. Even simple neogeo games struugled a bit with that core, at least the last time I tried. Maybe is more optimized now. Fba is better for those boards (Cps3, PGM, Cave, Kaneko, and some Taito ones)

And this core is still buggy, I tried to run Virtua Racing, because it doesn't work in 0.139 and Retroarch simply crashed with the Mame 2016 core.

I'm really in love with the Beloko ports as well, which you can use to play DOOM, Quake, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, etc. They are paid and available from the Android app store, and are not on Google Play. FYI there are free ports for some of these games as well, though the Beloko apps have nice control mapping options.

Completely agree with what others have said. Aside from Beloko (if you're into that), pay for ePSXe for and Drastic. Retroarch can fill in all the other gaps.

Retroarch is definitely a pain to set up but works great after the initial learning curve. I am also a big fan of the ReArmed core in Retroarch for PS1 games.

PS: Street Fighter 3rd Strike is glorious using FBA Core in Retroarch ;-)

Last week I bought some of his ports, they are really great. In Quake you can choose between the original engine, the dark places engine and the WinQuake source port. There is also a port for Jedi Knight II and Jedi Academy, which is great, I never so any wrappers for those games before.

So just for verification, before I go buying all my favorite and necessary emulators (which I have no problem doing).
In order to emulate the most popular of systems on an Android device, I must pay for most of the emulators (with exception of the obvious free ones)?

You have tons of choices when it comes to emulators but here is my setup of the best I can play all games across all systems (n64 is the limit in regards to emulation with gpd xd):

PSX emulation:

-epsxe (paid)

N64 emulation:

-Muppen64 fz (free, no ads)
-Tendo64 (paid)

SNES:

-Snes9x - Robert Boglia (paid)

NES:

-NES.emu - Robert Boglia (paid)

GB/GBC:

-GBC.emu - Robert Boglia (paid)

GBA:

-GBA.emu - Robert Boglia (paid)

Neo Geo pocket:

-NGP.emu - Robert Boglia (paid)

PCEngine:

-PCE.emu - Robert Boglia (paid)

Sega genesis/megadrive/mastersystem etc

-MD.emu - Robert Boglia (paid)

Neo Geo or Arcade:

-aFBA (free)

Nintendo DS:

-Drastic (paid)

If you want to go all free then RetroArch is also good, the user interface is confusing at first but once you get the hang of it it is a good emulator which comes with tons of cores, again the ones I use are:

RetroArch cores:

-Nestopia UE (nes emualtion)
-Snes9x (snes emulation)
-Gambatte (gameboy/gameboy color emulation)
-mGBA (gameboy advance emulation)
-Mednafen NeoPop (geogeo pocket/color emulation)
-Mednafen SGX (pc engine emulation)
-Genesis Plus GX (sega genesis/megadrive/master system/game gear/sega cd emulation)
-PicoDrive (sega 32x emulation)

When you get your gpd xd device I would recommend that you install the 1.8ghz Legacy ROM  as you will need every bit of power out of the gpd xd specially for n64 and ds emulation:

How well are Panasonic 3DO and Philips CD-i systems emulated on the GPD XD if at all?

3do emulator works really well.  There is no cdi emulator yet

I also like all the robert broglia emulators. (what will I get with the paid ones though?)  They already seem as good as can be, when free

This one is actually free in the Play store. All of the other Robert Boglia .EMU apps are paid. There are free versions of the .EMU emulators, but they are also very outdated and missing some newer functionality.

I just dont notice any problems with the free ones.  I guess once I come along something that could be better, Ill get the paid one
i hope robert broglia makes some newer apps for other systems.

Hey I was wondering if anyone could help out a noob wasn't sure where to ask but this thread seemed kinda appropriate. My girlfriends nephew loves playing Sonic Adventure 2 on happy chick on my GPD XD but when the game loads it says there is no memory card and I can't save the game is there anyway I can fix this. Im using reicast and the English version of the game?

Thanks

Take a look at this guide:
https://www.reddit.com/r/gpdxd/comments/4uuefi/guide_setting_up_reicast_dreamcast/

You need to format VMU under reicast to get memory card working.
Also, don't use reicast from hapy chick, it's better to use a nightly from here:

Thanks for the reply. I forgot to ask about Commodore CD32. How does that system run on XD?

In theory just selecting cd32 profile in the emulator should be enough. Try a different ISO just in case is an ISO problem
