    Has anyone had any decent luck emulating the following consoles through VNC on a Android device?

    - DS
    - PSP
    - Dreamcast
    - PS2
    - Wii

    If so, which VNC app did you use? I'm sure a person's internet connection will play a huge deal on performance but I'm still curious as to see what results, if any that some people have received.

    It also depends on the receiving device's ability to decode the signal.

    If it can decode 1080p@30fps, it should be fine.
    Just don't try it on a DS.

    I don't believe VNC properly handles DirectX or OpenGL; you would need an emulator that uses GDI (on Windows). And, I'm not sure how well VNC is set up to handle bitmap operations in GDI.

    Yeah most VNC programs do not do well on the 3d standards, RDP (granted I would probably have to stick that over VPN, *shudders at the thought of having a RDP server be internet facing*) on the other hand.

    What I mainly came here to ponder is are there any Kaillera (or an equivalent) enabled options- such things have been pretty good on the low latency/low bandwidth front for years now.
