Emulator requests thread
« on: December 12, 2014, 11:10:12 pm »
I'm still working on DcaSTaway right now but am curious to know if there are any more emulators out there people want running on the GCW. (And sorry, PS and N64 are still beyond my humble capabilities so lets keep this 16bit and below  ;))

And yes, I am interested in porting (insert obscure console no-one has ever heard of here) as long as there's compatible source code.

Thanks for the excellent work you are doing for the community to make the GCW Zero a great emulation handheld. Really glad you are working on the ST as my favourite systems are computers

We need more classic 8bit computers emulated. Atari 8bit, Apple series and BBC computer emulation would be much appreciated

There is a VICE release (not opk) that works pretty well:

... in any case, an OPK optimized version would be welcome ! ;)

I agree with Gab1975, an opk version would be good.

Would also be good to understand what needs doing to Unreal Speecy Portable (on the google drive) to get it to qualify for the repo.

An optimized wonderswan color emulator would be fantastic :)

An optimized version of Temper and Genesis Plus Gx would be great

Edit: Thanks Gab1975 for letting me know that Slaanesh has Temper on his to do list!

Some time ago I asked Slaanesh to achieve a GCW Zero version of his latest Temper release and he answered me that he will put it on the to-do list! ;)

Mednafen's PCE-Fast emulation should be feasible and would be better than temper (WonderSwan and NeoGeo Pocket emulation in Mednafen is excellent too). A more robust Genesis Plus GX port with button remapping and scaling options would be welcome. I'd like to see a better Gambatte port with remapping, scaling, and custom color pallete support too. Hell, I think Nestopia is enough of an upgrade over FCEU to want a port of that as well :-*

Atari Jaguar would be awesome but does the GCW Zero have the power to emulate it at full speed?

What's the issue here?

It's trivial to add TRIPLEBUF to fix graphics and package to opk (for multiple executables).

Of course... it should be an "easy" task!
If I remember well the main things to fix are:
- opk package for multiple executables (in any case the most users should be interested only in the C64 emulation);
- the software ability to create a work-dir in the $HOME folder (obviously);
- a function to save the menu settings;
- enable the hardware frame buffer instead of the software frame buffer.

Thank you, opt2not. Very cool.  :) Will try it out.

Stumbled across a Cybiko/ Cybiko Xtreme review at Ashens YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojatBoMZubk

Reminds me on classic Game Boy or Palm games up to Palm OS 4 and some games look like they could be fun. And actually it has quite an impressive library of games and apps. I wonder if an emulator for those platforms would be possible. I haven't seen it covered on any other handheld yet.

Cybiko at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cybiko
Here's an emulator project: http://b2cv5.sourceforge.net/
And here's a forum (with extensive file database): http://forums.planetcybiko.net/
