Lately I have been hoping for a device that can out do my PSP in controls and emulation. First I turned to the Open Source Pandora handheld, it seemed to fulfill all my hopes and dreams.
However as time wen't on I came to realize that I probably would never get one or if I do PSP2 will be out and even hacked by than (I do not think I'm being overly optimistic here it is a joke at the expensive of the delays on the Pandora even during shipment).
So I turned to netbooks, they are small enough to carry everywhere and can not only run older Windows games they can emulate everything the PSP can and do it better, the Pandora can do this but being a Linux based ARM device it cannot and never can run Windows games unless you count Dos. I choose a hybrid of a net book it is small enough to weigh 3 pounds and big enough to have an HD screen and a real graphics chip, but I'm not happy wth it not just becase it runs Windows 7 and there fore is worthless on older games (atleast quite a bit) but I cannot carry this device everywhere or fit it inside my pocket :humped:.
So instead I'm sticking with my PSP on this one, now that I look back on it there were only a few games I tried that did not work. So I was hoping for the months of neglecting my PSP that the emulators had been updated somewhat and some more stuff works.
This brings me to my point I was wondering if people could ask me if some games work now that did not work before well?
Does Kirby Super Star on the SNES work yet? This is basically the sole reason I started looking for a new handheld since it never worked well on the PSP with sound on and at the most I got 20FPS with sound disabled and frame skip on.
Does Sonic CD work yet? I tried a few Sega CD games and they worked fairly well but now that I look back on it those games were console style RPGs like Lunar and therefore probably did not use much of the hardware on the Sega CD. Sonic CD ran too slowly to be playable.
One more specific question, does Chrono Cross work yet? It crashed on me half way through the game where I found out that I did the eboot wrong due to a bug or something in POPS. Later this bug was fixed but it was too late for my game save
Any other strides in SNES emulation? I know Chrono Trigger was not the fastest game in the world (I never understood why my only guess was that it is possible Chrono Trigger used a higher resolution than the PSPs screen I never fully understood Super Nintendo resolutions so I'm probably wrong.)
Also can anybody tell me if any other emulators like Turbo Grafx, N64, and PlayStation have gotten any better?
