188w ago - Update: Some pictures and a video (below) are now available of the NullDC Dreamcast emulator running on PS3 for those interested!

A few days ago we reported news that drk||Raziel is working on porting the Sega DreamCast emulator NullDC to Sony's PS3, and today he reports that the BiOS is operational and running!

Speaking to PSGroove, drk||Raziel states, to quote: "Letsee .. oh wait, it cross compiled ! *yay* for uber portable code ;p Interpreter only / underclock 4x / no pvr rendering / no audio / no input. Bios intro runs fine, then gets on the clock dialog screen. YAY !"





Currently it is produced on a PS3 Debug unit due to its remote debugging, but the code will run on Retail PS3 consoles as well. Below is the log file for those curious, cool news indeed!

500°
192w ago - While it's been awhile since we've reported on any PS2 news, today ffgriever has proved once again that the PlayStation 2 is not dead yet with his PS2PSXe Preview release - a homebrew PS1 Emulator for Sony's PS2 console!

According to the author, PS2PSXe should be able to run PS1 images from all devices (CD/DVD, HOST/LAN, HDD) on the PlayStation 2.

Download: PS2PSXe Preview

To quote: "Public PS2PSXe preview. Only command line version attached. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get current sources to work properly (I'm halfway with some major changes and it will take awhile to complete them). The one attached you can consider as "the last one that actually works", or simply rev168.

The emu supports both PAL and NTSC display, but I REALLY RECOMMEND leaving the default PAL output. Why? Well, it's the only mode I use. Many fixes were made to make PAL games show less glitches in PAL mode... When you switch the display to NTSC it most often will show more glitches.

The PAL scph7200 bios is recommended to run games. PAL games are recommended due to two simple reasons:

Video: SNES Emulator - Mario Kart Runs on Non-Jailbroken iPad

300°
210w ago - Today ZodTTD has compiled a special version of his SNES4iPhone emulator specifically for non-jailbroken iDevices including Apple's new iPad and has shared a video of Mario Kart running on it below.

ZodTTD states that while he does have access to the iPad jailbreak, he did have to utilize official dev tools to make SNES4iPhone work on a non-jailbroken iPad.

To quote: "The build of SNES4iPhone running on my iPad as seen in the video was actually based on an AppStore app I submitted called "snesty". Apple quickly rejected it right after pulling the NES emulator.

I combined snesty with some SNES4iPhone features such as using the private API called CoreSurface. I used Apple developer tools and self signed it."

Finally, ZodTTD states that after Apple officially releases iPhone OS 4.0 and the existing jailbreak is distributed freely, he plans to create new versions of his emulators that run at the iPad's 1024 x 768 native resolution and support touchscreen controls, hardware keyboards and even external controllers should...
