State of emulation on 5xxx series?
« on: February 22, 2004, 08:03:33 pm »
I\'m considering buying a Zaurus 5xxx for the obivous reasons however I would like a decently capable gaming device as well.  I see that the Zaurus has an impressive list of emulators however I\'m having trouble coming up with information on how well they perform as well as how difficult they are to control with not-quite-a-gamepad Zaurus controls.  The ones I would be most interested in are NES, SNES, and SMS.  I also saw that there was a version of Quake ported to the Z.  What kind of abysmal framerates would something like that crank out?

Thank you for your time.

Mike

quake doesn\'t work very well on the 5500, or any pda for that matter.  Its more a proof of concept.

But you can get nes and snes emulators, check out the ZSI.

I personaly use the the z version of UAE all the time to listen to mods

There is dosbox if you want to run dos programs.  I also saw a picture of one 5x00 running win98 (it was the boot screen, don\'t know how far it gets, I wouldn\'t think about running word on it though

Snes9x runs great, nes emulator is perfect.  The genesis will yeild under 1 fps (I know not why) and I have no idea how to save in snes9x... (help on that would be great)

Thank you for your feedback.  Glad to hear NES and SNES are decently emulated.

Thank you very much, I read through snes9x documentation and the only thing I could find were F# keys to save and load.


Hmmm... if shift 7 saves, I\'m sure I\'ll be able to figure out how to load...

it\'s crtl + shift + 7 to save and shift + 7 to load.  Make sure you\'ve got the save directory and it\'ll pop up a message on the screen to tell you it\'s succesfully saved.

that pic was of bochs and its a pain in the butt to try to get even win3.1 working on the Z under bochs.  I tried usng FreeDos (granted MS-DOS woulda been better but...) and its REALY SLOW!
