n64iphone: N64 Emulator for iPhone 3GS/iPod Touch 3rd Gen by ZodTTD

Posted on Sunday December 20th, 2009 / 02:22

Ο ZodTTD, ο developer πίσω από τους δημοφιλής emulator για το iPhone (βλ. mame4iphone, psx4iphone, gpSPhone κ.α) μας παρουσιάζει  το n64iphone.

Το n64iphone είναι ένας N64 Emulator για το iPhone 3GS και iPod Touch 3rd Gen (λόγω του ότι ο κώδικας είναι γραμμένος ώστε να υποστηρίζει OpenGL ES 2.0 δεν μπορεί να τρέξει σε παλαιότερες συσκευές).

Ας παρακολουθήσουμε το 1ο video demonstration του n64iphone:

Όσον αφορά τις δυνατότητες του n64iphone, ZodTTD δήλωσε τα παρακάτω:

Today I bring to you a work in progress video of my latest emulator port I titled n64iphone. n64iphone is a Nintendo 64 emulator currently designed for the iPhone 3gs and iPod Touch 3rd Gen. It is a port of mupen64plus along with Ari64’s ARM Dynarec, and Adventus / Orkin’s OpenGLES GPU. Since the graphics processing unit (GPU) code is written with the OpenGL ES 2.0 specification, it limits the devices able to be used to the iPhone 3gs and iPod Touch 3rd Gen as of the current Apple lineup.

As said this is a complete work in progress video. I will continue to show development as the port progresses. At the time of writing this I still need to implement:

– Controller plugin (WiiMote / hardware support will come first oddly enough)
– Sound plugin (Can affect performance once enabled)
– Screen scaling & rotation
– ROM selection screen & my usual emulator’s layout
– Improve compatibility a bit as I most likely made a bug or two in the dynarec port

Note that performance can be improved from what is currently shown here. I am using NO frameskip. I also am not using all the assembly for vector math within the GPU currently. Sound and controlling the emulator aren’t within this video as I still need to implement sound & controller plugins.

Current testings as far as I can tell show:
Mario Kart 64 runs real well.
Mario 64 runs real well.
Smash Bros has a graphical glitch where eyes are missing on characters. Perhaps this is due to a bug made in the dynarec porting I did.
Legend Of Zelda – Ocarina Of Time runs a bit too slowly but turning on frameskip should help fix that.

Πριν από λίγες εβδομάδες είχαμε αναφερθεί στην πρώτη προσπάθεια για ανάπτυξη ενός N64 emulator από τον NWorksDev (βλ. 3G4 N64 Emulator for iPhonε 3GS/iTouch 3rd Gen) ωστόσο μέχρι και σήμερα δεν είχαμε κάποια ενημέρωση πάνω στην εξέλιξη του project.

Όπως και να έχει, ο ανταγωνισμός πάντα βοηθάει και κρίνοντας από την μέχρι τώρα δουλειά του ZodTTD δεν μπορούμε παρά να είμαστε αισιόδοξοι για το μέλλον του N64 emulator στο iPhone.
