Puppy Linux Runs Amazing On My Old Dell Mini 9 With 8gb Storage And 2gb Ram I Got For Free

The Netbook Would Be Capable Of Running 8/16 Bit and older systems and consoles fine should even be able to play ps1 and maybe n64

i did a google search and could not come across and emulators only something called Puppy Arcade but is beta and out of date so i don't want to use that

thanks

And James, it would help anyone from our gaming community if you were to specify EXACTLY what your goals are. Try'n be as detailed as possible which games you wanna play so that fellow members can address you accordingly.

I would try installing and running puppy arcade.
So what, it has some age to it.
You are talking about running some very old stuff.

Get out of Windows thinking!
It has to be the latest to work Twisted Evil Evil or Very Mad Shocked Exclamation

DOSBox will set up a working MS-DOS environment to run any of your favorite DOS based games.
https://www.dosbox.com/

DOSBox runs very well in most Puppy Linux variants. So I created a PET for it but it is also available in the Puppy Package Manager.

If your are into retro MS-DOS games this is a must have. Also works well to run any DOS programs. I use it to run QuickBasic 4.5 which it does run nicely!

the PET package is here ->
