    So I compiled the Game & Watch emulator from RetroArch and thought I would share it with you guys! :)

    Screenshots:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Note that the games use a hardcoded border that look like the handheld system. That means a lot of the ROMs are nearly impossible to use with the border. Fortunately, many (all?) of them support zooming in on the display by pressing select.

    I've tested it on my N3DS and get 60 fps! Hopefully someone with an o3DS can test for us :)

    Get your ROMs here! This is supported by RetroArch and I think public domain!

    A few more photos in my imgur album here.

    Note: I plan on submitting my changes to RetroArch later (they were minimal, tbh) but I thought I would make a thread in the meantime. Also, I compiled a few more emulators such as fmsx, vecx, and a few others. RetroArch is so well architected it's unbelievable. Also, for some reason the cia wouldn't compile properly. Sorry, guys.

    Enjoy!

    This just makes me wonder even more why there are no Game and Watch titles on the eshop.

    Tested Donkey Kong, Mario Bros, and Pacman. All of them work faster than 60FPS on my o3DS, I just can't actually play any of them. In the case of Mario Bros I can get Luigi to move but nothing else happens, and in Pacman's case the game starts but I can't control Pacman at all. Super weird.
    Either way, great job!

    I love you :) But what about dual screen games? We just have to be able to use both screens in for example donkey Kong etc.

    The games truly shines =)

    But it would be 1000X better if we could use both screens on multi screen games!. I know it wont be easy to do. Just saying. Thanx for the release =)

    Excellent stuff! Nice to see that this core running on the Nintendo 3DS. The only issue I have with it is that a couple of the game screen are cut off for me for some bizarre reason.

    With the Mickey Mouse Game & Watch game, the very far right of the handheld graphic is cut off. This leads to the last two buttons on the console itself not being visible, but it's still very much playable.

    Mario Bros. on the other hand is completely unplayable. It certainly works (as in I can start the game), but I can only see Luigi's screen. Mario's is completely cut off, making it impossible to tell if there are any more bottles coming out of the far right side.

    Anybody having similar issues? I've tried changing the video and aspect ratio with no success.

    I would still love to see dual screen support in this! Are you still on-board @DogParty?
