Okay. That narrows it down a bit.

The best emulator for PC, in my opinion, is SSF.

That's the one. It is difficult to configure, but once you have it configured correctly it is decently accurate. I use XPadder with it for the game controller interface.

It can't be effectively emulated on the XBOX. I've only been able to get SSF to run decently on fast quad core systems, like my i7. The Saturn is a very complicated piece of equipment. I'm surprised the programmers didn't all die of brain strokes.

I can provide a link to an easy tut (I'm talking n00b status) that makes it easy as pie to set up.

It is SSF but to use SSF you also have to use Daemon Tools to mount the image. (sort of like a fake cd drive) just search for "daemon tools lite"

:D :lol: agree :roll: buy a model 2 saturn ( any region) and chip it up fella. best thing you will ever do..

saturns are a wacky design with multiple proccessors etc and can not easily be emulated to a good standard like the other consoles can.. unlike the other sega's they do need to be chipped to play cdr's..... but.. its sooooo worth it..

nothing like the real thing.....

I actually haven't had any problems with SSF. I have v0.12 beta and it's worked like a charm so far. You do have to have a virtual cd drive setup (Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120%, MagicDisc, etc.) but that's really not that much of an annoyance. I will say though that I've had some trouble finding image files that work properly. Had the best luck with .nrg files, but several others just give me a "Failed to mount disc image" or whatever message. Dunno if I'm doing something wrong or if there's just a bunch of bad files out there.
Oh, and the version I have let's you map controls without having to use Xpadder.
Also has most of the standard features (save states and whatnot).
I do agree though that the best option is to chip a model 2 Saturn. Nothing beats the real thing.

SSF is full speed for probably 90% of all roms or if it's slower it's not noticeable.

All of my roms work for it. (Guardian Heroes, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Nights etc....)

The only roms that are slow are the 3d fighters Fighters Megamix Virtua Fighter 2 etc...

Open the cue with wordpad and make sure the first line matches the bin. Example if the bin is PanzerDragoonSagadisc1.bin make sure it says the exact same thing in the cue and if it doesnt just change it to match in the wordpad document and then save the changes.

I probably would get one if I knew if they had any decent exclusive games as plenty of them seem to be PSX titles.
