    Default Amazon fire tv and emulators

    Hi all

    Now I know a few of you have done this but I can’t find the threads.
    I have an amazon fire tv that I use for watching a tv source that will remain un mentioned.

    I am very very keen in getting it running a few retro emulators
    Mainly NES SNES and Mega drive
    With Mame if possible too.
    Storage wise for Roms isn’t an issue as there is a 4tb drive sitting waiting solely for this purpose.

    What I would like is any advice or guidance from you lot as like I say I know a few of you have already done it.

    My other option is to mod a wii and do it that way.
    Any advice and help appreciated

    Install Retroarch and from that dash you can easily install emus. I have n64, nes, snes but loads more are available. The only one I couldn't get to work was PSX so I installed PSXe separately which works fine.

    I installed this on the Fire tv box rather than stick and works perfectly with the Amazon game remotes.

    retrox is very good for a small fee
    another idea is old original xbox modded and load up something like coinops or a modded ps3 is great

    i use all of the above if you need some pointers

    Thanks to emu

    I have got this on but have found the Amazon game controller a pain in the ass for the nes

    Have tried re mapping it aswell and still doesn’t always work

    Retrox?

    Is that on the fire tv?
    If it works and is good I don’t mind small fees
