Hu6280 is a Turbo Grafx 16 emulator available for Windows and DOS. Both versions have a fair amount of compatibility as well as features. Currently, the DOS variant of Hu6280 is more full-featured than it’s Windows counterpart with the ability to add far more command line arguments for more precise control over audio and video aspects of the emulator. Neither variant includes a GUI and are both entirely controlled via the command line and shortcut keys, with the exception of a file loader on the Windows version.

Hu-Go is an Open-Source Turbo Grafx 16 emulator from Zeograd. Hu-Go is based on the Japanese TG16 emulator, “FPCE”. Hu-Go’s compatibility is comparable to most of the better TG16 emulators in existence and like many of the others it is primarily command-line driven. Hu-Go includes a simplistic GUI which can be used to launch games, edit minor settings and perform basic functions. Most of the more powerful settings are stored within the INI files and can only be edited directly.

Turbo Engine is a PC Engine/Turbo Grafx 16, SuperGrafx and CDROM2 / Super CDROM2 emulator for Windows. Turbo Engine 16 was developed with an emphasis on accuracy. The system requirements for Turbo Engine 16 are a bit steeper than some of the other emulators. The author recommends a minimum of a 2.2GHz Pentium 4. Turbo Engine shares the same plugin system as the Genesis emulator Kega Fusion so it can use any Kega Fusion compatible video plugins. Language translations can be found on the author's website.
