NEC - PC98 Emulators

Name Description
Anex86 Anex86 is a PC98 emulator for Windows that surprisingly has a GUI that's in English, so you don't have to blow your mind trying to figure out what you're doing. It ran at frameskip 5 or something on the Pentium 120 I tried it out on, but if you have a newer computer you should be fine. I don't know about the legality of the ROMs for these emulators, though, so you will have to find them yourself (it's not that hard).

You might want this Japanese font if you like something else than jibberish showing up when you play games.
Neko Project II This is a PC-98 emulator for Windows that is based on the T98 source code, and inevitably so, very fast. It doesn't have that many features yet, but it's update very regularly.
PC98E This is another PC98 emulator for Windows, but I wasn't able to test it, so I can't give you any details on how good it is or anything just yet.
T98 I couldn't get this PC98 emulator running, due to the fact that it didn't seem to support .hdi files. Either that or it was so slow I'd have to wait more than the 15 minutes I did wait, heh.

You might want the font for use with this emulator, too, since if you don't have it, it won't start up at all.
T98-Next This emulator is kind of a sequel to T98, though I couldn't get it to run in Windows 2000 it seems to support a whole lot of nice things, so if it works on your system, you might want to check it out.This is an English Translation of the T98-Next GUI.
T98vmm This emulator is from the same people who coded T98-Next. It only works on Windows NT based systems.
Virtual 98 This PC98 emulator requires MMX, so I have been unable to try this one out, too, but I will update the descriptions as soon as I get a chance to try them out at home.
