    Hello, I want buy an Android device which will be always connected to pc and controlled by gamepad. Because I love old games from 90's (and before) I want use this device like a retro station for playing MS-DOS, Amiga, C64 or NES games. I will be very happy if people can describe here experiences with various emulators available for android. Because I am author of one of them, I can describe that one.

    Magic Dosbox

    Allows playing old MS-DOS games like Warcraft 1 or 2, Doom, Dune 2, Command & Conquer, Monkey Island, Civilization or Sim city 2000.

    Playing games on touchscreen is hard, but Magic Dosbox supports virtual buttons called "Widgets" which can be placed with custom position, size and background/foreground image. They offer various functionalities like keyboard keys, mouse buttons, virtual dpad, notes, loading html, combo actions, streaming part of screen to another location etc,,,. Widgets can be placed on multiple layers, which offer creating complex games layouts. Layouts can be exported and imported on another device. People are sharing layouts here.
