hi all!

i've been lurking for sometime here and i've learnt a lot. i'm hoping to give something back.

i just wanted to share with you a webpage i'm currently working on, where i review various emulators and their games.

nothing new, but with respect to the games, i have hand picked the games that suit the zaurus' controller and have the best playability.

i'm an old skool gamer (used to own a c64) ph34r.gif so i'm not easily seduced by fancy fmv cut-scenes.

i'm currently wading my way through gameboy and c64 games. next up will be snes and mame.

the web page can be found here: http://booyaa.org/dokuwiki/zaurus/gamingonthego

please pm or leave your comments. i would grateful for any feedback.

thanks!

booyaa

p.s. once i've got my head around bb code, i'll try to post excerpts of the web site here.

I'm interested in emulation, but so far I've been disappointed by the speed of most emulators I've tried on the Zaurus. I like that you talk about how well each emulator performs. I'll have to give Frodo a try.

I'll also be interested in your Mame results, I tried one version of mame but found it too slow. I remember playing early versions of Mame on my 486DX4, at full speed! The Zaurus should be fast enough to run at least some Mame games full speed, but I think the Mame code got bloated and slow over the years sad.gif

Thanks for the site. It was an interesting read and will check back often. Will you also be covering native game file interpretors for the Zaurus like ScummVM, Exult, or Sarien? I find those usually give you the speed boost that traditional emulators are lacking on the Zaurus. I'm having a blast with ScummVM right now on my Zaurus. I have got a decades (1987-1997) worth of LucasArts games loaded on my Zaurus at the moment.

thanks for the feedback! give me a shout if you need a hand with frodo. it was a bit tricky to get working.

i'm going give the mame games a stab next. i suspect auto frameskip rate will play a big part of emulation sad.gif

now if only someone would port fuse, or give me some usable spectrum emulator i would be sorted!

i just hope can finish the majority of my mini retrogaming site before i get my gp2x in august, otherwise i feel you'll see a dip in the site's updates laugh.gif

Thank you so much for writing up some good docs for emulators. This is one of the main reasons I got my C1000.

I would like to help with screenshots when I get some time to spend on emulation this week.

Soon your document will grow large enough that you must break it off into one page per application. =)
