I'd like to provide the latest update to my list of working emulator sites for various platforms. All of these enable play directly within your browser, so there's no sticky business of downloading software and finding the necessary game files to get it all going. These are all great sites and we should all show our support. This is the "July 2010" edition of the list and, naturally, I'd love to keep adding to it, so suggest away. Here goes:

I tried Retro Uprising, but it didn't work. Just keeps crashing my Firefox after hanging at the loading screen.

Works fine for me, at least with the Coleco games I tried on 3.6.6 at work (selecting the Java option - I didn't try their interface).

Retrouprising is the best

Retrouprising is the best site on the net, and there is a very helpful community, just post your problems in the support section of the forum and you'll get your help asap, it's worth it, challenging the other members in all your favorite classics for high scores is super fun.

I tried Retro Uprising too...

This site has everything: Genesis, NES, SNES, TG-16, Game Boy, Amiga (yes Amiga!), Colecovision, Atari, and even old radio shows and text adventures. I have had no problems with the program at all. Everything works great! I have yet to find its equal in the emu world.

Pretty sure you downloaded the wrong version.

If you're using 3.6 or higher you need a special link that is located in this topic right here: http://retrouprising.com/support/retro-uprising-support/firefox-3-6-inco...

If that's not the problem the admin would be very willing to help, just make a topic. :)

TRS-80 Color Computer emulator with lots of software

Laugh at the Trash-80 all you want, but this is an impressive site with a large software library:

Nobody here ever laughs at any system, so no worries. We love them all. Thanks for the CoCo emulator link.
