    including ROMS. how much space is given to hold all of these? im just curious.

    an estimate of how many the itouch (8GB) can hold. if its as much as the ipod cn hold then, so sweat there but im under the impression that only a portion of that is allowed for apps (roms).

    thanks

    The ipod touch without modification has ~300MB of space on its system partition. There is another partition for music etc.

    Its possible to fool your ipod into thinking the applications are in the usual place, but theyre actually in the second partition, giving you more space

    search the forum for that!

    EDIT: I should point out that ROMs for the emulators go in the large partition anyway, so they dont come into the 300MB limit at all.

    alot of nes games
    if you took the advantage of limited space
    then it will depend on how much space you have left on your ipod

    Just a reminder, iPod was originally designed for media player, it's not easy to play games on iPod. If your intention is to play game, PSP will be a suitable console, it can play NES, SNES, GBA, and PS1 roms too.

    I agree with Haruyuki - the iPod is pretty lousy as an emulator - not because it can't handle the processing or sound or graphics, but because the onscreen controls are very hard to use without any tactile feedback (you can't feel the keys). It's a nightmare to try to watch what's going on in the play area while trying to make sure your fingers don't "slip off" of the control pad or buttons while you're trying to jump barrels or fire missles or whatever. Forget about any good play with "twitch" games...
