What’s up with the releases

This blog has been pretty quiet  lately, and maybe you’re wondering why there has been no releases lateley 🙂 Well, I have been snowboarding the last month, so I really haven’t made any progress. I still have a lot of photo’s and videos to edit, which will keep me away from my emulator projects for a while.. But soon the releases will be coming at the usual speed 🙂

As I said earlier the future of my emulators is in the Qt. The works is proceeding really well. The AntSnesQt is only missing style sheet, and then I could release it. Actually I already have started the gpsp port with the same Qt based UI. The gpsp requires few SDL-alike functions to be mapped into the UI, but I can mostly reuse the stuff I made for the AntSnes.
I haven’t abandoned the psx4symbian port, but I’m really not working on it neither. The proof of concept was made in couple of hours after the gpsp port, and my plan is to reuse all the gpsp stuff again to make that one. This should be quite fast to thing to do after I have the gpsp running on Qt.
Why not to make the psx4all port at first, and then work with gpsp and AntSnes? The psx4all video has already over 10 000 views on youtube, and it seems like a pretty popular project.  My reasoning here is that I don’t believe that current S60 5th edition phones could emulate the psx4all with decent speed. There’s no technical issued preventing you to run the upcoming psx4all port with current 5th edition phones too, but my personal goal is to run the psx4all with Symbian^3 phones.

The Symbian^3 phones will be a lot better for gaming/emulation because of the new graphics architecture (NGA) .  The basic idea in the NGA is that now you can draw into the screen more directly and with graphic accelerations (opengl es 2.0, openvg, etc.) . See the graphics architecture evolution in Symbian wiki page: http://developer.symbian.org/wiki/index.php/Graphics/Component_Architecture_Evolution. I expect that with the new graphics architecture The AntSnes and the gpsp emulator should be able to run at full speed (60 fps). This would also give a huge performance boost for the psx4all 🙂
Here’s a summary how I’m planning to proceed with my emulators projects.

    gpsp , u mean we can play psp games on our s60v3 phones !!!!.

  4. Armorant says:

    Right way, s60v3 is not good for emulators. Sure, the sym*3 is much (and much better) that my phone, but will psx4all be running on sym*4? Is there any difference? (*3 and *4)

    you are awesome!! just make sure the emulator works for i8910 🙂 🙂 :)!!!
    Thank you so much for all your work!

    But why not psx4all on 5th edition? Devices like Satio, Omnia HD and Vivaz can support a good speed perhaps full speed.

    Excuse my lack of knowledge, tell me, what would that platform QT? platforms because it runs on symbian s60 5th wheel and not the former? what’s the QT?

  9. zaca11 says:

    qt platform runs on nokia n95, and runs normal, because the qt antsnes not work in the nokia n95?

  10. faenil says:

    hi mate, I read on twitter the gpsp version is running, did you make the stylesheets?
    any deadline for gpsp ? and for psx4symbian? I’m looking forward to trying it on i8910, I’m confident it will keep 20fps at least…

  11. rpgaddict_22 says:

    Psx on my n95.. wow that’s good to hear…..

  12. Mathi says:

    hi summeli, did you tried to do a Sega Megadrive Port? it will be awesome on s60^5 and it will run very fast, like AntSnes and Gpsp! and you´ll do psx4all for Symbian 5th? it will be awesome too.
    thanks and sorry for my bad english!

    I have searched so long for this but nobody can do it!
    You are the best and i think you can do it!

  14. NightStalker says:

    Hi summeli, i was wondering if you could release the psx emulator for s60 5th too, in the hope of running any 1 games on the emulator as im pretty sure s60 5th could run few games. What do you think. Sorry for my english.

  16. Dan says:

    Sorry to bother you Summeli, but are you busy………, well, i requested you to release the psx4all for s60v5th too. So, are you gonna do this or not. I watched the psx4all proof of concept video and i think the speed is fine and could do better if you want it to be. Im sure you can do it. I really appreciate all your works and am actually very happy to have such a wonderful developer. Thanks, and please reply…!!
