Is there one?
x86 proc emulation on DS = Wow, that's FREAKIN' IMPOSSIBLE. UNLESS YOU'RE EMULATING A 5MHz 8086 CPU.
Would be nice to have though.
No. And there probably won't.
Since you obviously have no idea what you're talking about:
It completely possible, but there would be no point to it.
lol @ 5MHz 8086 emulation
I know it's totally possible, just that it is pointless since... well it is.
It'd be so slow that it'd be almost unusable.
Speed is not relevant at all.
Porting DOS to the ARM7 architecture works.
Which is completely irrelevant to the current discussion.
Since an x86 emulator would be virtually useless, no there isn't one and there won't be.
go urza go!
you've just stated something that was already stated..
and I thought you said there isn't one and there won't be cause of speed and because that is how it is. o.O
I thought you were joking at first.
This is a sad day for humanity indeed.
This is too confusing.
then stay out
The Atari ST did a pretty good job of 8086 enulation. It was just DOS obviously but it was good enough to play CGA/EGA games on it.
with an x86 emu we could play old dos games.
thing scumm but with a dos style game start.
closest you will get I suppose is Speccy ds or AMEDS 2.0 Amstrad Emulator for ds
that and the dos for ds that was released recently
DOSbox for the DS. Runs at maybe 1 fps, if that, and has very little in the way of user input, but it works as a proof of concept.
Runs Visicalc at least. Just make sure you edit the end of the config file to reflect the program you wish to run.
It's possible and it is useful, could be used to play old DOS games.. or just to have a portable computer with DOS or some old Linux
Good to know that someone is working on it.. if it gets optimized, it could run some games like Wolfenstein 3D and Prince of Persia.. would be great to be able to play those on the DS..
Hasn't Wolfenstein already been ported to the DS?
Regardless, GPF abandoned the project long ago, though like his post at GBAdev states, anyone's free to email him for the sourcecode.
Yeah, Wolfenstein is on DS here, port is dead, though. Prince of Persia is available on the Amstrad CPC, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Genesis, Master System, NES, SNES, Atari ST and ZX Spectrum, all of which are emulated to various degrees on the DS.
