    Man, if this thing gets to running native speeds and the controls work correctly, this thing is gonna rule.

    Totally cool... I am just waiting for someone to come out with a nice "iFuntastic like" GUI app to add third-party apps to the iPhone. I am too lazy (and too old) these days to hack it out myself. :rolleyes:

    NES Emulator for iPhone


    Now we're getting somewhere. A native NES Emulator for the iPhone has been released.


    A Youtube video demonstrating the application is available. Appears a little slow at the moment, but certainly functional.

    According to the release notes: "Presently there is no sound, and the emulator is a little slow (most likely due to the way I'm drawing onto the screen). And the control is a bit iffy (using an image of an actual controller, while cute, sucks)."

    This is one of the reasons I'm glad I'm an early adopter. These may be baby steps, but each advance is pretty dang exciting. And it's just the tip of the iceberg, folks. Imagine what the iPhone world will look like a year from now.

    Good times...

    The game screen is too tiny; might as well be an iPod game. Why not take advantage of the iPhone's widescreen mode? And as I mentioned in another thread, with multitouch, why do the controls have to be visible at all? Just imagine an invisible NES controller superimposed over the widescreen, which knows when you're tapping up, down, left, right & A/B. It's hard to explain, but hopefully some of you understand what I'm talking about.

    Well its open source, so someone should do it if it comes to fruition. If not, you could always do it yourself! :D Long live open source! But it will probably be a option, there are usually quite a bit on the emulators.

    Now lets get a mame emulator on the iPhone. :rolleyes:

    Hell freakin yeah :D
    I cant wait, I got all those NES roms for the PC. It would be great to play them on the Iphone.
    I remember the gameboy screen was smaller than the Iphones screen.

    Yeah this is gonna rock because this is only the beginning. Ah yeah the gameboy was pretty sweet way back when, I think I may have to dig this up and play a few games until the iphone stuff gets rolling along.

    Holy Cow! Talk about a leap! It was just the other day we were seeing little terminal apps, and now this? I'm impressed!

    Dude! Sweet!
    Please please please you hacker guys, make this stuff work. I want to write native apps for the iPhone, but without sdk and with the software updater erasing custom mods, I'm just going to wait for y'all to make it all work.

    So do you use Xcode, or what? Do you need special compiler for the ARM, or does the gcc handle it? Does anyone know where I can get this info?

    LOL Do you have any idea how much processing power that would take? Not a hope in hell on the iPhone, at least until Apple enables true 3rd party app development.

    With or without a zapper? :D It seems just hitting the duck with your finger would be a little too easy. ;)

    You have to spend some time reading the how tos on various iP hack forums, then you need to find game ROMs. If you dont have those you cant play the games and if you dont know where to find them then you're out of luck.
