116w ago - As a follow-up to their previous update, this weekend EmulateMii has confirmed that the PS364 Nintendo 64 Emulator for PS3 is still under development and has a near-complete hardware renderer.
To quote: Long overdue progress update and... a 1up on bigN!
We must start by saying that yes, it sure has been a while since our last update. Followers can rest assured though that we have been actively developing all of our projects in one way or another. As mentioned before, all three of us have very little time to work on this stuff due to real life commitments, but combined we seem to be getting things done at what we think is a decent pace.
WiiSX has seen some tinkering to try and get compatibility up, but has run into other issues. We have been keeping in sync with pcsx-reloaded whilst trying to maintain the PPC dynarec for it. Eventually we need to add more recompiled functions to the dynarec in WiiSX, particularly GTE. We initially wanted to do a full PPC dynarec re-write, but that doesn't seem feasible time-wise at the moment. Future plans for WiiSX also include porting a hardware renderer now that Pete's OpenGL plugin is open-sourced.
146w ago - Following up on the recent N64 Emulator for PS3 videos posted, today another Team known as EmulateMii have announced that the PS364 Nintendo 64 Emulator for PS3 is currently under development.
To quote: "We've been playing with PSL1GHT, the legal, open SDK for PS3, over the past couple days, and we have a basic port of Wii64 to PS3 already. Expect more to come...
PS. There is some recent news about a team claiming to be working on an N64 emulator for PS3. Just so you know, that story is not about us or about PS364."
More details will be posted on this Nintendo 64 PS3 Emulator WIP as they are available.
147w ago - We are a team of 3 guys who have been working on a Nintendo 64 emulator for quite some time now, and we have decided to go out with the news since now our N64 emulator is officially working on the PS3.
We still have a huge load of things to work on, but it's playable and N64 is finally working on the PS3.
What we have done so far:
1 player (keyboard only)
We have succeeded to enable gameshark codes
Graphics works excellent on most games we have tried; Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, Ridge Racer 64, Diddy Kong Racer, Mario Kart 64, Banjo Kazooie and 1080 Snowboard.
Games we have tried that are jerky (so far): Duke Nukem 64, Doom 64, Hexen 64 and WCW Smackdown 64.
Issues (we are working on):
Audio is not working yet.
A user interface and the ability to edit and change files such as controller settings, cheat codes, etc. (We do all this over FTP now).
Game menu (we now have to upload one game at the time).
PS3 controller, (we now have to use a USB keyboard).
We have decided to use ps3news and youtube to communicate with you guys, and if you want to help us out, feel free to either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or PM us on youtube.
209w ago - I was looking on ebay for a DS and noticed at the bottom of a listing "most watched" and came across this gem. I then googled it and found a video (below) and write up on this device.
To quote: The modding community has been quite active improving old game consoles. I'm such a fan of the Nintendo 64 that the latest mod of the venerable console was just too cool to pass up.
Dubbed the N64Mini, the portable Nintendo 64 device from modder Zenloc features the familiar Nintendo 64 controller buttons (minus the D-pad, unfortunately) in a nicely compact package. Users can place their Nintendo 64 cartridges in the back of the device to play some of their favorite games.
According to the device's developer, the N64Mini runs on a 4-cell battery and comes with a charger. It also features a headphone jack and an A/V out port for those who want to play the title on a display that's a little larger. It even comes with built-in brightness controls.
But here's the best part: the N64Mini is available now on eBay. Bidding ends in five days, but so far, 44 bids have been placed. The price is at $555 at the time of this writing. I obviously haven't...
