Retroarch is free and great for NES,SNES,and Genesis/32x/Sega CD and other systems like PS1 on Fire TV if you can get it to co-operate like I do.
GenPlusDroid has easier access to rewind than Retroarch and is also free.

There is an unofficial updated version of Mupen64Plus AE with many internal improvements over the normal build.
You may have to sign up to get it from an attachment in some random topic or from inside the shoutbox.

You'll need Retroarch for the Sonic hacks (like the recent contest ones) since some only work properly on the Picodrive core.

Im having trouble mapping the buttons on my wired xbox 360 controller. It works awsome in xbmc. It navigates the menus in retroarch well but i dont understand how to map the buttons for specific cores. Nes.emu works great. All the other emulators ive used the key mapping was very simple.

The main issue with emulators on the Fire TV is the linear filtering most of them use. It just blurs the image when stretched to 1080p.

So far the only one I've used which can disable Linear filtering is MyBoy and MyOldboy for Gameboy games.

I'm pretty sure all of the .emu/explusalpha emulators have the option to disable linear filtering.

I turn on scanlines if possible, IMO, it makes all the old console games look the best, sort of like you were actually playing it on the TV. Linear doesn't bother me and it doesn't actually look that bad as long as your are not stretching images, but scaling images.
