    This is a Request Thread feel free to post your Requests in the comment's and maybe a dev will take your idea and make it happen.
    (General Guidelines) (BELOW)

    (Don't post ridiculous suggestions)
    (Understand the limitations of the device)
    (STAY ON TOPIC)
    (Don't always expect me to reply as i have a life and other things to manage.)


    For example, a good request might be:
    Can you please port (BLANK) to the Vita?
    Here is a bad request:
    Can somebody make a PS2 emulator for the Vita?


    (Consider that your request is more likely to be fulfilled if an open source project already exists for a similar architecture (i.e. don't ask for Cemu or SSF), and is feasible to be ported (i.e. don't ask for Dolphin (GameCube). Your request is less likely to be fulfilled if it has to be coded from scratch and is completely from the leftfield with little regard for the target hardware.)

    That kind of emulation on the vita would be difficult as all hell.

    I know but every time a game console is open, people think of the dumbest things for homebrew.

    People should think in resonable terms like an N64 emulator for instance.

    The problem is people don't think of the hardware limitations.

    Can someone make a PS3 emulator, or, even better, a PS Vita emulator? :lol:

    Seriously, though, let's establish to newcomers that the newest home console that the Vita will ever be able to have a fully functioning emulator for is the Dreamcast and leave it at that. In fact, note it in the OP.

    These threads always end up messy because people don't use a lot of common sense when making requests, or don't really see things from a developer's point of view.

    For example, a good request might be:
    Here is a bad request:
    Consider that your request is more likely to be fulfilled if an open source project already exists for a similar architecture (i.e. don't ask for Cemu or SSF), and is fesible to be ported (i.e., don't ask for Dolphin). Your request is less likely to be fulfilled if it has to be coded from scratch and is completely from the leftfield with little regard for the target hardware.

    Ha! not even modern deskop pc's, laptops, or any other modern mobile device can run dream cast emulation. From what I understand Dream cast emulation is one of the most complicated things ever created, next to the xbox 360.

    Actually, a Dreamcast emulator wouldn't be too unreasonable a request as per my above stated criteria, as the Reicast emulator is open source and available for ARM architecture and many Android tablets share the same GPU as the Vita. It might be too much of an undertaking for a relatively niche homebrew format like the Vita, however.

    I didn't think the emulation for it was good much less stable.

    Yes could you make a VPK to edit a .ini file that may or may not unlock the vita. The only trick is you have to set a 0 to 1 in the Vs0 partition. That looks to be a bit on the un-easy side. That or possibly a theme manger. Subsonic music streamer app would also be the best thing ever. Any of those 3 and I would be forever grateful. If not thanks for listening

    Following are consoles/computers/engines which had a emulator for PSP but don't have anyone for HENKaku:
    • C64
    • Amstrad CPC464
    • ZX Spectrum 48K
    • MSX
    • Atari 800,800XL,130XE and 5200
    • Sam Coupe
    • Dragon32/64-Tandy Coco
    • Thompson MO5
    • Thompson TO7
    • BBC Micro Computer
    • Atari 2600
    • Atari 7800
    • Colecovision
    • Intellivision
    • Vectrex
    • Pc-Engine/TurboGrafx-16
    • Commodore Amiga
    • Atari ST
    • Final Burn
    • M.A.M.E.
    • S.C.U.M.M. <- Yes, there is a ScummVM for PSP (but the Vita has a touchscreen)
    • Nintendo 64
    • Z-Machine
    I would like to see a native version of all of them (even when they had no problem in VHBL since its more comfortable this way and some could utilise the touchscreen and the rear-touchpad)

    Edit: All emulators for the consoles/computer/engines mentioned could be found here http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=8026
