    Now I'm not brilliant with what can emulate what, but if this emulator turns out to be the real deal, does this perhaps make emulating the sega megadrive on the gba a practical possibility to someday?

    Why dont you guys just accept the fact that there will NEVER be a SNES emulater for the gba? If the SNES emulater for the GP32 isnt 100% with some games how in the hell do you think it will work on the gba? The GP32 overclocked is 156MHZ, the GBA is only 16.7MHZ.

    But GBA can do some graphics tricks by hardware.

    Who said that internal clock means anything??? The things that matter are the Floating points per second, etc. The internal clock doesnt mean much at all..

    It's *still* the real deal.

    I was forced to take the video of the server (used nearly 300 megs of bandwidth in one day).

    there have been about 4 fake snes emulaters for the gba, they all had their own sites and everything, this one is just going to join all the others.

    indeed, if it was real the guy would upload the software as it is now instead of posting a rather odd video.

    I don't care what you guys thinks. I'm telling you: It's real. It's not a fake, I got it right of the author.

    Bleh. Just wait a couple of weeks for the first release.

    May be a silly question but is this emu a port of one that runs on windows? If so what one?

    It's not a port, as far as I know. Porting any of the existing emu's would be a mess, since it would have to be hacked badly to support the GBA hardware fully.

    does'nt have to be hacked badly, it could be hacked well [​IMG], but fair enough. I asked as if it were it would have given a good indication of the compatability of the emu.
    Can't wait for a release, I dont expect it to be perfect but being able to play vintage MK will be cool [​IMG]

    The doubters will be the first devoured!

    I think It's real, I've got no reason not to believe it isn't real, I sit with bated breath waiting for an actual release and anticipate any more word about this emulator

    I think its real and I believe that SNES software CAN run on the GBA:

    While it would be exceedingly difficult to write an emulator for the SNES on the GBA (just on a code level, not to mention what to do about scaling, filtering, buttons etc), I highly doubt it it's impossible. The DC, for example can run SNES games at full speed with no sound. I'm sure people have been working since the GBA technical docs came out for somethign to this end and the SNES is a (techincally) well documented system.

    I agree, too, that it would be impossible to port a PC emulator to the GBA; one would have to write a completely new emulator that takes advantage of the GBA hardware.

    As mentioned above there have been fake ems before, but if Gragga and Flubba say it's real, I'm inclined to believe them. The proof's in the pudding, but I'm willing to wait (and encourage the developer!) and see before dismissing it outright.

    Hey Lord Graga,

    Couple of quesiton if you dont mind answering them...

    First off you said that the only game that will run is SMW right? So did the emu come pre-compiled with the game attatched? or did you have to attatch it with a compiler or through a command prompt?

    If not have you tried attatching any other games?

    Also it sounds like you may have been sitting on this for sometime... How long have you known about the emu? How long has the author been working on it if you know?

    It also seems that you made the video through a GBA emulator... have you run the program on actual harware? How does it run? I know you cant hand out this *alpha* but I was wondering if you wouldnt mind making another video? If anything it will just put a hush the non-believers.

    Sorry for all the questions... I think this will help clarify somethings, and add to the credibillity of the project.

    Thanks again for all the info you given thus far.

    hmm if its going to be an emu, then they can modify the buttons, maby L + R can be pause. and start and select can be the x and y buttons, itd be complicated, but im sure whoever is working on it can do that. i just hope it can work with seiken densetsu 3, thats all i want. if i can play that at a descent speed with sound, ill be happier than the happiest person on earth [​IMG]

    I reckon there are two good thing you can do to make use of the 8 buttons. One is of course to multifunction them, but another is to have you hold down L for example, and then R, A and B have a secondary function while L is held.

    This is most certainly interesting... I never thought I'd see the day. That is one fast emulator though. 400Mhz Pocket PCs can barely handle SNES. That SMW video is near full speed, without frame skip or anything really. Why is it that SNES can be emulated so well (with speed hacks I suppose) as Flubba's PCEngine emulator? Isn't the PCE a weaker system?

    I don't know anything about programming, but I know that this is one large feat. Congrats to whoever is able to do this stuff. Maybe it's really Flubba...? Trying to trick us, eh?
