IIRC there was a Gundam software (not a game) wherein you can create models, paint it & kit bashes and stretches up to probably the AC or AW timeline. However it was probably for a Mac. Saw it from a friend's Animerica.

Virtual Game Station ver 1.4 is the best since there are small problems with Bleem! ver 1.5 like skipping/stuttering sounds. However saving games in VGS is still the same speed as a normal PSX (bleem! is faster).
Here is a list of Gundam & Non Gundam related games I've tried:
2nd Super Robot War: Perfect
Super Robot Wars FF: Perfect
Super Robot Wars A: Perfect
MS Gundam: Char's Counterattack: Crashes after 2-3 fights but you can try to save between stages. However you will be unable to finish Amuro's side since it crashes after the End Credits.
Zeta Gundam: Same problem with Char's Counterattack.(Or due to a very scratched CD Disc).
Gundam: Battle Assault: Perfect (I'm using the disc as a coaster)
Ghiren's Greed: Good since it runs but I haven't initiated any battles yet.
SD Gundam GGeneration F - good with some rendering defect (Annihilation/ Occupation GFX sometimes) and the insignia text are poorly rendered (not sure if its due to the emulator).
Bakusoi Chodai Lets&Go Eternal Wings: Perfect
TM of Tron Bonne: Crashes during Item selection.
Rhapsody, A Musical Adventure: Perfect
FFantasy 8: Poor battle rendering scenes.
For SNES emulation I've always preferred ZSNES/ZSNESWIN.
4th Super Robot Wars: Perfect
Super Robot Wars EX: Crashes after 1st turn (could be a fluke)
MS Gundam Cross-Dimension: Perfect
GGundam: Good but some stages has flickering effect(NeoEgypt, NeoJapan,& Neo Canada) rendering it to near unplayable
Gundam W Endless Duel: Perfect
Chrono Trigger, BofFire 2, final Fantasy 4-6, Metal Warriors, Tenchi Muyo, SM, Macross, Rayearth: Perfect
Haven't tried any Saturn, Genesis, or N64 (IIRC it need a Glide supported card or Glide emu) emu though but feel free to experiment.
For Cheating 8> for PSX you can try PEC since it has most GS codes encoded already and can support externally inputed codes.
(Is this getting redundant: A Game shark emulator for a playstation emulator!)(Had some problems with SRWFF cheat codes hat was built in though)
For transfering/converting PSX Memory Card Formats there is a freeware program available which not only converts format but changes Nationality(USA,Japan, Europe/Pal-NTSC & vice versa), has an icon editor, & a hex editor but I forgot its name.
A memory card editor that I can still recall goes by the name Memory Card Captor (Sakura? sic) but IIRC it was in jap.
