    Default Amazon fire tv and emulators

    Hi all

    Now I know a few of you have done this but I canít 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 isnít 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

    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 doesnít always work

    If it works and is good I donít mind small fees
