Why are there no good Sega Saturn emulators?

There aren't any good ones with good compatibility or speed, and they all have the worst ui's in they history of ui. I can't even figure out how to open games on a lot of them. Dreamcast got a better emulator.

Dreamcast was easy because it ran WinCE

If you have it set up correctly with the proper CD-ROM Drive path, you should go to Hardware> CD Open. You can use a Virtual Drive.

You need to mount an ISO with a virtual drive.

Ok, the virtual drive part was confusing, probably an an attempt to stop piracy.

Thanks for the help, I finally got it working.

Die Hard Arcade, Virtua Cop, Daytona USA, Panzer Dragoon, Guardian Heroes, House the of the Dead Sonic 3D Blast all play decently more or less.

What obscure, crap game are you trying to run?

That's what I heard years ago when I tried finding one. I heard the same about the ps2, but people actually cared about the ps2.
