    So, since we've mentioned every other pre-DS console here, be it hand-held or not, I think it would be only fair to ask this one too:

    Is it possible to run Sega Game Gear ROMs on a DS? Since the DS is like 15 years less old and supposedly more powerful. Do you think they'll ever make a Game Gear emulator?


    (Seriously, though.)

    There's a Master System/Game gear emulator for the GBA that works pretty darn well. But I can't remember anything about one being made for the DS...

    Dammit. There goes my little master piece of irony and sarcasm. Oh well.

    (Yeah, one would think a 3.5 MHz processor with 24KB RAM and 160*144 screen would get an emulator by now...)

    EDIT: I searched the forum for "(Sega) Game Gear emulator" and didn't find that thread. My search engine Juju is strong.

    There are two GBA emus:
    Reesy's DRSMS:
    Flubba's SMSAdvance (actually got an update about three weeks ago):

    SMSAdvance is probably the better of the two but do not be quick to discout DRsms.

    DS code:
    If you have hung around DS emulation chances are you heard of Alekmaul, enough said. GBA code may still just edge out this but not by much.

    part of neoflash coding contest and I am not sure it has seen an update since late 2005.
    Not worth it compared to what is around.
