Maemo Emulation



, ,

For those of you looking to kick it oldskool when the Nokia 770 comes out, there might be a few open source projects that fit the bill. Frodo 4.1b, a Commodore 64 emulator, and Atari800 built and ran without modification on the x86 Maemo development environment. Frodo chewed through almost all of the CPU on my Athlon XP 2500+, so getting that to run on the actual device might be a bit iffy. I saw some .asm files in the Atari800 source, which may be the downfall of Atari800 on Arm.

We’ll see though. I tried a few more modern emulators (gameboy, nes, snes, etc) but nothing looked like it was going to be easy to get work at first glance. Here are a few screenshots of what I was able to get running this evening:

    This domain seems to get a great deal of visitors. How do you promote it? It gives a nice unique twist on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to post about is the most important thing.

    It can be rare to locate a professional in whom you might have some confidence. In the world of today, nobody absolutely cares about showing others the way in this matter. How fortuitous I am to have found such a wonderful web site as this. It is really people like you that make a real difference nowadays through the strategies they share.

    Some time before, I did need to buy a house for my firm but I didn’t have enough cash and could not buy anything. Thank heaven my colleague adviced to take the credit loans from reliable creditors. Therefore, I did so and was happy with my commercial loan.
