    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?

    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:
    http://drsms.webpersona.com/
    Flubba's SMSAdvance (actually got an update about three weeks ago):
    http://www.ndsretro.com/

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

    DS code:
    DSMasterplus:

    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.

    DSMS:
    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.
