Well, since 2009, I've been answering hundreds times that NO, PS2/Dreamcast/etc was impossible, or not before 10 years
But actually, I remember, early 2009, my first discovering of FpseCE, that even if it was only 24fps, Gran Turismo 2 was playable!!!!!
I had a PXA 624mhz single core device, no GPU, small amount of RAM....and I was playing PS1 games!!!
Today, we have quadcores, running at 1.5ghz, 1Gb of RAM, powerful GPU
And so I start wondering if we will see new emulators. I search a lot on the internet but haven't found real projects, or "dead" projects
=> 2 Nintendo DS emulators
, slow as hell as soon as it must display 3D, no sound, just some cerebral training games are playable
=> A Saturn emulator
in really early stage, yabause, but so far I just had a game to launch, went to the menu, and crash, that's all and that was already really slow. It is said to reach some 5 fps ^^
=> NullDC, a Dreamcast
emulator. It was discussed a few years ago, after some videos of a beta were published on youtube, then nothing. Developement is stopped, it seems it was not a fake thus (I've even read that the dev was dead, maybe not true)
I opened this thread for two reasons:1) Share your findings if you hear about new emulators, new projects, new beta versions, etc
2) What do you think? Possible? Not possible? What emulator would you like to see?
Most of the time, it depends on the difficulty to emulate a console, it's the same on a PC. So if you play emulators on a PC, tell what can be easily emulated, what is harder....and just tell your opinion and dreams!
Here are the emulators I'd like to see:
-NDS: two emulators already exist, they seem very compatible, but really suffer from a lack of developement. Because it's too hard? Don't know...
-Saturn: same as above, needs serious dev !
-GameCube: is it possible? Hard or easy to emulate on a PC??
-Atari Jaguar: just because I used to have it, and it was 64-bits. I know it's hard to emulate, and wouldn't get people's attention.
-PS2: are quad-cores enough to start trying to emulate, even if we have only 20 fps, like FpseCE in 2009?? How is the PS2 compared to the PS1? 10x more powerful??? How is a Tegra3 compared to a PXA624Mhz? 20x more powerfull???????? (I really don't know for the proportions, of you do, please tell!)
