Install Puppy Arcade to a Flash Drive from Windows
In the following section, I will show you how we installed Puppy Arcade to a USB Flash Drive using Windows and our Universal USB Installer. Puppy Arcade (created by Scott Jarvis), is a remix of Puppy Linux with a strong focus on Console Game Emulation. Puppy Arcade includes some of the most popular Console Game Emulation software available for Linux. Of course you will need to supply your own game ROMS.
Console Game Systems that can be emulated include: Amiga, Atari, Amstrad, Arcade Machines, Colecovision, Commodore (64/128/VIC20/PET), GameBoys (GB, GBC, GBA), GameGear, Genesis, MasterSystem, MS DOS, NeoGeo, NeoGeo CD, NES/Famicom, PC Engine/TurboGrafix 16, PSX, Scumm, SNES and ZX Spectrum.
