    Hi.
    I was wondering if the vita was powerful enough to have a gamecube emulator, since it has some similar (and maybe better) specs to the gamecube. Is it possible?
    Thanks in advance. :)

    The only GameCube emulator worth mentioning is Dolphin, and you can see the minimum specs for that yourself. It's got an Android port in the works, but that currently requires top of the line hardware to run at all well.

    So, I know that even Dolphin isn't running at full speed sometimes, but is there a chance that I can do something like port it to the vita as Rejuvenate homebrew?

    I guess? It's open source, so there's nothing stopping you trying. Of course, your casual tone suggests to me that you're massively underestimating how much of a task it'd be, you'd expect to be working at it for another few years at least before getting anything even remotely playable, even longer if you don't already have the relevant skill and knowledge of how Dolphin works..

    No, I do know that it'd take years of development; I'm not trying to be lazy, or anything like that. And yes, I do have plenty of skills to port something like that, maybe. It depends on how you code the program for it to work at (near) full speed.
    Also, casual tone?! ...no. :glare:

    It's probably possible, I really doubt it though.

    All I need to be happy is a perfect N64 emulator.

    Before this thread breaks down, I'm just gonna say that I only wanted advice on if it was possible. I got my answer; it might be possible, so I'm gonna leave it there for now.
