Tech – Steam Deck users may already be familiar with Emudeck. This is a game organizer that will make it easier for us to install, configure and play all the retro games that we have.
After waiting for some time, Emudeck has finally released the Windows version which we can use on various devices such as laptops, PCs, ROG Ally, Legion GO and others.
Here is how to setup emudeck on Windows.

Please go to the official Emudeck website and download the Windows version.
Once downloaded, run the file to open a terminal window and just follow the steps to install Emudeck
Step 2 Configure Emudeck
At the initial stage, please select Custom Mode and select Continue
Next, select the directory to save the game ROM to be played and select continue
After that, select the device used and select Next
Then please select the emulator you want to install on the Emudeck.

Step 3 Add BIOS
After all the emulators are installed, we need to add the BIOS so we can use the emulator. The BIOS from each emulator can be dumped from the console you own or you can download the Minimum Bios Pack below.
After downloading, please extract the BIOS using 7Zip and copy the bios file to the emudeck data directory.
Next, go into emudeck again and select BIOS Checker then make sure everything is checked
