    1. What games does the Pokemon Mini emulator run?
    2. Can the Pokemon Mini emulator run fan-made games like some I have seen in Youtube videos?
    3. Which SNES emulator has the best compatibility?
    4. Were there ever any emulators that supported the Laserdisc games? (I already know about Dragon's Lair for the DS.)
    5. For the Klax and Tetris arcade emulation, is it more worth it to simply skip ahead to the NES counterparts instead?
    6. About the DOS emulator on the portal page... Can you really run Warcraft on it? How would you even get the game small enough to fit on a 2GB Micro SD?

    Warcraft came on a single CD or 4x 1.44MB Floppies (5.76MB) so installed I'm guessing would be ~10MB. Much smaller than your average NDS game.

    Warcraft =/= World Of Warcraft.

    I don't enjoy World of Warcraft at all. The game is quite boring. You click an enemy over and over and expect it to die. You can spam potions and all kinds of magic. I do not understand how people can even get addicted to it and spend real money on it.

    I simply did not know the installation size of Warcraft.

    Warcraft is from around the time of ~5GB harddrives, so I assumed you were thinking of a later game.

    That said, a Supercard DSTwo would be better for you, it's got better DOS and SNES emulation, it can use emulators normal cards can't.

    I had Warcraft on my old 800mb Mac.

    Warcraft came out in 1994, it was the late '90s that saw 'explosive' growth in storage. So while I'd doubt 14GB in '94, in '98 is easily believable.

    The DS is incredibly weak as far as processing power goes (which is the deciding factor in emulation ability). I mean it's weak. It's pathetic. It's a joke. It's so bad that the SUpercard DSTwo has a more powerful processor. The flash cart. It has a more powerful processor than the DS.

    The only thing better is the emulator for the DSTwo. While it can play more, it's still not perfect.

    That is quite depressing. While I could very well attain a Supercard DS2, I would rather spend my money on games for my Nintendo DS Lite, as the only game cartridge I have at this time is the R4 my friend gave to me with the DS itself.

    Oh well. At least I am able to play other games.

    Yep.
    Even the original Diablo is only like 100MB or something.

    That is interesting. Usually, your computer would either shut down because it would freeze, or maybe you changed the settings in the graphics options. [​IMG]
    Usually, the game would say that the graphics card failed to start up the game, but I am glad you got it to work.
