Porting The AntSnes to the S60 5th edition

I have been porting the AntSnes to the 5th edition. The reason I have been a bit lazy is that I can’t get the TRK debugger working with N97. So I have been working only with filelogger. That sucks!
Here’s some video of the current state of the AntSnes to the 5th edition. I’m running only the regular c-core in the video, so the final version could be a bit faster with the asm-optimized emulator core. I just can’t get the previous asm-optimized core from 3rd edition to work with the S60 5th edition for some reason, and I’m too lazy to add all loggings to all sources.. Hopefully the next N97 firmware will help to my debugger problem.

As you can see from the video I can run and jump at the same time, so it really does support 3 buttons at the same time, if the phone is capable of it (nice feature for chrono trigger).
You might notice that I didn’t use menu to load the ROM, and the reason is that I can’t do it yet. The current version has some issues with the menus on the 5th edition that needs to be solved before I can really release the 5th edition version. But as you can see, I’m getting there 🙂
The menu problems are now solved. There’s only some small tasks before this emu is ready for you guys 🙂

    I am glad you are focusing on AntSnes again. I have been checking your blog daily for updates concerning the S60 5th Edition version. The time and effort you are putting in is very much appreciated by myself and I am sure many others as well. Do you know if AntSnes can or will support multitouch with the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD’s capacitive screen?

    Just my opinion, but I think you should consider adding extra buttons to the d-pad for the up+down, up+right etc. movements. You could keep that original snes-controller look if you made those extra buttons invisible. So if I want to press up+right, I simply press the space between up and right keys.
    Can’t wait to get my hands on this. The only thing I need for my N97 right now is the 2.0 firmware and a snes emu. 😀
