Emulation info:

Because this machine uses lot of strong hardware, emulators are in very soon state and emulate only few games.

Project Tempest - first and only emulator which is able to run a game. This one runs Raiden, Dino Dudes, and Cannon Fodder, but is under high development, so we'll see what'll be next..

This emulation info was written on 20.January 2003. (This time is very important, because emulation info very depends on the time it was written - emulators can improve a lot after this time..).
