    I have just ordered my gp32 and its on its way, but I just want to know what your favorite pc engine games are that run well on gpengine. I am looking forward to playing outrun, afterburner, thunder blade, chase hq, space harrier and S.C.I. Do all of these games work right and what ather games out there that I might not have heard of should I load up right away.

    Yes they work fine, but my fave has to be the genius that is R-Type, absolutely perfect Aracde conversion on the pc engine, brilliant.

    Oh, and try Wonderboy 3 if you have never played it before, its a really good RPG/Action platform game. There are several websites devoted to that game :)

    Yep... i agree with craigix.

    R-type is the almighty one. :lol:
    Outrun is good too but just doesn't hold up well now-a-days (unfortunately... coz i loved it yonks ago).

    Bomberman is cool on the GPengine emulator too...

    Chan and Chan was my all time favorite game on the Pc engine - very silly !!

    Just pull down on the pad in the game and you will see what i mean !!!

    Most of the PC-Engine games I have tried have worked so far, with Parasol Stars being my favourite. I was sad to find that none of the Bonkers series appear to work, either the background is corrupt and the main sprite is ok, or visa-versa.

    Still it's a great emu anyhow.

    :D

    Well, yeah, Wonderboy 3 IS great...
    But I'm missing the energy hearts on GPEngine... hard to play when you don't know when you'll die...
    Is this just my dump?
    Works fine in any other emulator, though.

    I haven't been able to run any Bonk's on my GP either. Other games that I can't seem toget working are Jackie Chan, New Zealand Story and of course Street Fighter 2: CE. So far everything else I have played works great.

    The Bonks also work fine for me. For anyone looking for a different version, PC-Genjin is the japanese version of Bonk, to give you a few others to try.

    New Zealand Story works fine for me, but no joy from the Bonks. Fortunately I hated SF2, so I don't miss it.

    What were the best puzzle type games for the PC-Engine?

    SFII and Jackie Chan didn't work for me either. Avoid Jack N. Golf too, it works but it's pants!

    with gpengine i think tg16 versions (the us pc engine) of games do not work as well as the original pc engine ones - for example Gunhed works on mine but blazin lazers does not (the same game) ect - so if you cant get bonk to work try the rom Pc genjin (like stated before) {also known as pc kid) Also the US rom i had of devil crash did not work so i downloaded a jap one and it worked fine.

    Galaga 90 is running great and really close to the arcade - extremely addictive stuff!
    Parodius is excellent. R-trype, Raide, Gradius...
    However, I have noticed you have to run Galaga right after starting GPEngine - if you run it after running another game it might freeze the screem
