Gameboy Color and NES Emulators for PS3 in Development


Sponsored Links
195w ago - Previously it was reported that shinhalsafar started work on an FCEU NES emulator port for PlayStation 3, and today Robo Hobo has shared a WIP of his Nestopia (NES emulator) and Gambatte (Gameboy Color emulator) PS3 ports for JailBroken consoles.

Note: When upgrading do not delete your old version, it will delete any savegames you've made. Just choose install package, when it tells you the current version is already installed just tell it to install anyway.

Changelogs:

Release 3:

• Settings are remembered between sessions
• Option to underscan output, up to 10% for nestopia and 50% for gambatte
• Option to enable Vsync and Linear Filtering(to reduce scaling artifacts, in exchange for blurriness)
• Maybe fixed sound, maybe not

Release 2:

• Added great NES icon from fraser0206 at psx-scene, thanks
• Save games and save states in nestopia
• Fast Forward, Hold R2 to go at 4x speed
• Fixed the Exit Game option from the PS3 menu, it no longer restarts the system
• File list tweaks, removed the . and .. entries(use Circle to go up a directory). Holding cross no longer trys to down more than one directory.
• VSync is still disabled

Gambatte:

• Supports Game Boy Mono and Game Boy Color
• Supports zip
• Press right stick to open menu, circle to exit menu
• Opening menu causes sound problems
• Press L3 + L1 to save state, L3 + R1 to load
• All saves are placed in the game folder

Nestopia:

• No zip support
• Not really ready for anything
• Press right stick to exit
• No saving or loading
• Package uses same 'icon' as gambatte

Both:

• VSync disabled to prevent sound issues
• Sound buffer code sucks

Next I hope to work on:

• Adding various settings.
• Load new game without exiting emulator.
• Overscan workaround for those with issues.

I wonder how likely it will be for a DS emulator to work for the PS3. I wonder if the PS3 can handle it.. with the PS3 XDR and GDDR3 memory, processor and graphics card i think it would be most likely run smoothly.

Just had a little try on these emu's and I'm impressed. The only issue I found on Nestopia is that the graphics on Paperboy don't display correctly.. Apart from that it was great playing some on the old Nes games on a wireless controller like Bubble Bobble etc

Awesome news - do these emulators use up all the tv screen or do you still get black bars either sides like in snes 9x??
That being said, the snes9x update came out yesterday. 1080p, full screen and point filters.

Great job on the nes and gameboy. This is turning out to be a great weekend. for emu.

i'm not quite sure why someone would want it all stretched out and distorted anyway.

I agree, I never stretch out the aspect ratio
