However, the most popular PC98 emulator in Japan is Anex86. Although a few games doen't work with it (e.g. Ningyo Tsukai: the original Japanese version of Metal & Lace), Anex86 has high emulating performance. Strictly speaking, Anex86 is not a PC98 emulator. It is the emulator of EPSON's PC-286, 386, 486, 586 which are compatible hardware of NEC's PC98. Therefore some games need to have the EPSON check removed: this fragment of code discriminates whether the hardware is the genuine NEC PC98 or not. You can download the check remover, DISPELL, from this page.
Several other emulators are available for the PC-88, check this page (jp) or this page (en). You can find a lengthy help page for PC-98 emulation on 46okumen.com with updated download links. You may also use DOSBox-X to run PC-98 games. 2b1af7f3a8
