      Although you lose the simplicity and charm of OpenEmu, it's easily the best alternative on Windows.

      they both provide good library interfaces and ways of organising game backups, as well as being able to choose different shaders for different systems, and being able to choose an emulator core separately from the main gui which stays the same.

      It will run on anything the low hardware cost makes it affordable for any budget.

      This alternative is disputed. Dolphin Emulator is still a legitimate alternative to OpenEmu, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
