    Wait. So we're likely to get a working Wonderswan emulator before we get a working original Xbox emulator???

    Were there any horror games on this system (unlikely given the specs, but iirc some horror games were on the GB/GBC, so its possible)? This would be a great way to freak someone out if done right

    What a dickhead button scheme that device has, though.

    It's already emulated, it can just be emulated more accurately now.

    One of the two only MMBN platformers, but I think it was in the WS color.

    I think that Microsoft made an original Xbox emulator for their Xbox One.

    The GBA version is better I think?

    Neat. Surprising that it took this long for a dump to be made. I guess the console didn't get much love. Kinda reminds me of the Atari Lynx.

    I've never seen a real WonderSwan console, I only know it through emulation. I've played Makaimura for Wonderswan via emulator because I'm a fan of that series.

    So does this mean that there will be an emulator for this? Or is there an existing emulator?

    I have a Wonderswan Flashcard (WonderMagic) but it's broken somehow, there are other flashcars out already for Wonderswan, like the WS Flash Masta

    anyway, it's nice to see the bootrom dumped, i still love my WS and WSC, it's a pitty the system failed and never saw a US/EU release, i used the flashcard to get patched roms working (translations)

    Also worthy page (WS(C) games that are playable without Japanese knowledge or use trial and error

    I have Mr. Driller and a few FF games, would love to get my hands on Loderunner for WS :D but don't won't to pay $50/60 for it :P

    Maybe we can convince Bandai to release a WSC mini with ALL games ever made for it on it :D héhé

    Heh, since it was a Bandai system, there were a lot of Gundam games for it as well as 3 different Super Robot Wars games, one of them a three parter. Hmm. I think the bootrom stuff was needed to transfer progress from Super Robot Wars Compact 2 parts 1 and 2 into Compact 2 part 3.

    Only 39 OG Xbox games work on the Xbox One... the rest of the backwards compatibility list is 360 titles.

    The Xbox 360 is compatible with a lot of the first Xbox games.

    But you still need an original Xbox since the 360 updates broke some Xbox games like Pyschonauts.

    Or just use the Xbox windows emulator, apparently there are several of them. Dunno what's the best one.

    I can't get any xbox emulators to work. I think I copied my game wrong, since I don't have an OG Xbox lying around to dump games through. And the 360 is not compatible with any of the games I have. (I just checked, and found one on Wikipedia's compatibility list, but I'm sure I tried it and it didn't work...)

    I get 60 FPS on my New 3DS. Maybe mess with frameskip/throttle?
