    hello

    do you know if an emulator of the flash language exists for the ds?

    it would be great to play on the ds the many many games that exist in internet.

    i know it exist many emulators (such as amstrad machine, snes machine, neogeo, nes etc etc...) so i think that a flash emulator could exist somewhere... maybe.

    If it could be done, it would have been ages ago. It just wont, its too demanding on the DS

    remember, the ds only has 4mb ram. so it will be impossible to run flash.

    Even the PSP can only barely run simple games.

    but thats because, for whatever reason, the psp emulates an internet browser and is really bad at it. while emulating a browser, it lacks the power to run flash properly, wasnt that right?

    No, its because Flash is bloated and requires a lot of processor power and RAM. The PSP doesn't "emulate" Flash or a browser, emulation is when a system attempts to run software from another system on a different architecture. The browser and flash support the PSP supports was built for the PSP itself.

    The PSP barely has the hardware to handle the simplest of flash games and the DS is far less powerful and no where near capable of running flash games decently.
