    Would an N64 emulator be possible on the new iPhone 3GS? ;P

    They said it wasn't possible on the recent iPhones, But with the new hardware it may be. I doubt it will happen though. I would suspect it to be a HUGE battery drainer.

    one of teh main issues with the n64 emu was the sh*tload of buttons it needs, so i guess not unless you get an external joypad

    External joypads are completely possible, but I really think it would be great if someone at least tried n64 emulation on the new hardware.

    Who... me? *looks around*

    Look, I'm not trying to rush any of this, I'm just suggesting that someone with the proper skills and knowledge try this out, it would be a big hit for the iPhone community.

    ya, this is something thats ya beyond the normal users knowledge. i cant even make a game w/ python, or even graphics. were just saying that we need someone else to do it because we dont have the brains for it.

    It's already pretty hard playing with two buttons and a d-pad on the screen in landscape. >.< Wonder how hard it'll be with 2 extra buttons?
