    I've been wondering, what's the longest chain of an emulator within an emulator? Like, you can run a PSP emulator on a PC and run an SNES emulator on the virtual PSP, and run some emulator that runs on the SNES and emulates a very primitive system (say, Chip8).

    Computer VM's don't count 'cause they're not under nearly as many restrictions, I'm talking standard handheld and console game systems.

    Doesn't that quickly drain the battery?

    Isn't there a way to run it through a nes emulator without gba?

    PS3 is totally not playable on Windows, bullshit. Same for PSP on a Wii emulator.
    Your chain is a fail.

    I've always wanted to know the record for the longest VM chain, but this is also interesting.

    My take on it is that it would be like powering an LED flashlight with a nuclear reactor. Speed and accuracy would have to turn crap really quick going that many layers deep in emulation, so it would it would make it appear as if the nuclear reactor was insufficient to power the LED flashlight.

    I've never even thought of running an emulator within an emulator (all Inception-like) before. Talk about the ultimate [​IMG] maneuver. Go deeper. Now that's funny! [​IMG]

    You guys come up with some trippy ideas sometimes.

    Doesn't matter if you've got the worlds most powerful super computer, if it isn't programmed right, it won't work.
