    X2 and X3 use a special chip. I'm pretty sure they didn't implement emulation of the chip.

    X2 and X3 had a special chip in the game cartridge for the 3-D wireframe looking graphics. It can't be emulated on a DS.

    Pretty much, yeah. See http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/SNES_games_with_special_chips for more info.

    Heh, that reminds me, I never did get around to attempting to speedhack those two games. How well do they run on the PSP anyway? Do they need frameskip to maintain full speed? I might take a crack at it when I get the chance if there's actually something to gain.

    An iPlayer could probably run them, but I don't think the software is designed to emulate the chips, so it wouldn't make any difference.
