    I'm sure the Dreamcast Emulator is far from running efficiently on the DS, but remember that talking fish game? That would be AWESOME to have running on your DS. The DS is even equipped with the required microphone.

    The emulation will most likely never happen but I would love to see a port of the game Seaman. I would go like this if it ever happened... [​IMG]

    That's not a Dreamcast emulator. That's a DS emulator.

    LOL you might as well ask for PS3 or Xbox 360 emulation. Emulating a powerhouse like DreamCast on a system with as weak specs as DS is pretty much impossible.

    The SH-4 architecture uses a very powerful instruction set. It's difficult to emulate even on high-end PC's.

    Erm... Do you know chankast? http://www.chanka.org/

    It actually runs almost all games at full speed and without major porblem. But the author released 2 versions before he quit the project. No update since 2004. He made this emulator in 3 weeks! And it wasn't to difficult since IBM provide many application to emulate powerPC and espicialy the one in the dreamcast. Don't know if all the doc is still public.

    It runs most commercial games just fine as they don't really utilize the system to the fullest extent. Try running something like genplusplusDC on it which really does use all resources available and you'll see what I mean.

    Plus, what does IBM have to do with Dreamcast emulation? The SH-4 architecture was developed by Hitachi (and the graphics accelerator used in the DC was developed by NEC).
