    It isn't without pleasure that I announce you the near release of the SNES Emulator for Supercard DSTWO. The emulator makes use of the cart's onboard CPU to supposedly run games at full speed, but unfortunately still won't support games that embedded co-processor chips on their cartridge, such as the Super FX, rendering a few games incompatible (among which StarFox).

    [​IMG]
    To find out more about this beta version, which we unfortunately cannot release right now, stay tuned for a mini-review from GBAtemp reviewer lilsypha who will tell us her first impressions: does the emulator make the most of the onboard CPU? how is the compatibility? what features does it offer? The answer to all your questions in a few hours...

    All we know for now, and this comes straight from the Supercard team: they will be releasing their final version as open source, in an effort to help third party developers to make better use of the Supercard DSTWO SDK.

    Fiiiiinally, I've been waiting on this forever. [​IMG]
    Hell, I can take not being able to play SuperFX games, just being able to play some standard goodies like Super metroid, Link to the past and Super Mario All Stars + World with good speed and no graphical issues will be awesome.

    Well, I guess releasing it as open source may allow the homebrew community to add support for embedded chips?

    It's not like the games that make use of a SuperFX chip are that good, so this should turn out pretty well.

    At least, if it can perfectly run Terranigma, I'll be happy.

    (And I won't be here till I've finished it again [​IMG])

    I just want to play Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars without any issue. That's what I'm waiting for.

    That list shows pretty much all the games that require special chips to run, but I'm surprised that Pilotwings and Super Mario Kart were also on it.

    the news is awesome, the list is not

    i thought the whole point of extra RAM was to emulate the Super FX chip (or any other chip it has)?
    hopefully they'll get there further in the development
