    From what I know the PC-98 is pretty similar to an ordinary PC, so I doubt that's going to happen.

    -5MHz 8086 cpu with well known opcodes on the internet
    -128Kb of ram
    -640x400 pixel display
    -No graphic card!

    It can be done, maybe even with just userspace access

    Well, if anyone would want to look into it but not start from scratch, Neko Project is on github. I know there is atleast a Pi port of it.

    Thank you! I was just looking for an emulator to base on!
    Unfortunately I can start porting it right now since I already have an unfinished Gameboy Advance emulator (quite early stage :P) but when it's done I will try to port this one :)

    so it could be easy to port i think ^^ port a wii homebrew to wii u is easier than port a pc software

    Yea, the one on Wii is also Neko Project. I'm not sure if it'd be easier to start there or from github because the Wii one is probably behind.

    I don't think it's a good idea starting from wii homebrew as AFAIK it use an hardware access level that wii u just doesn't have and gx libraries, that we won't be able to use from browser (That should work with the 5.3.2 kexploit thought)

    Fam hold your horses

    We all wanna play the old crappy touhous but realize that the scene is still kinda mew and that stuff just won't happen in awhile

    just use the Wii version, it's more than enough
