Pico Drive seems way faster then NESEMU and SNES9X...

Is it just me?  How can we get these other emulators to run as good as Pico Drive.  I mean the NES emulator should have no problem right?

It's not really that simple. NES should run fine, and it does (I haven't tried NESEMU in a while. It didn't work that well when I used it though. On the other hand, nofrendo works very well). Genesis/Mega Drive is generally easier to emulate than the SNES though.

Additionally, Picodrive is a very well optimized Mega Drive emulator, specifically optimized for ARM and MIPS processors, with years of development behind it. Snes9x also has a lot of development behind it, but it's development specific to Dingoo's MIPS processor and hardware hasn't gone on that long. It'll be a while until Snes9x works as well as picodrive, if that's even possible.

Does Nofrendo work with sound on?  I haven't figured that out yet.

in fact, Snes is a little mor complex than megadrive...

and to fully optimise the snes9x you'll probably need to rewrite a good ammount of program code lines...

tough work and no one pays for it.

do someone wants to offer a "bounty" for a fully optimised snes emulator?

Nofrendo has no sound support.

So as of right now,  the best NES emulator out there for the Dingoo is the native one,  correct?
