Emulator. It emulates something ie it copies how it works. Emulating a game is the process of playing games such as dgen for an emulator of the megadrive. However some emulation (basically all of it) is illegal and I would rather keep my PCA account by not going any further and risking getting in trouble.

It's a means of emulating or using an established standard.

For instance you used to be/are able to run the old Sinclair Spectrum games on a computer by emulating the original machine's operation.

This can happen if he has software to make virtual CD drives installed.

Something that pretends to be the real thing. As in Loading a CD you can use a CD Emulator that copies the CD to the Hard Drive so you do not have to keep putting the CD in the drive. It works as if you are using the CD
