AntSnes 0.8.6 for Meego

The fist working AntSnes build for Meego is ready and it’s running on my N950. AtnSnes is Snes emulator for Meego. It is actually based on DrPocketSNES version 6.4.4, which in turn is based on snes9x 1.39

I’ll add this to the public meego repository when I have some more time ( In the mean while you can download it from here.

    Hey. How much did you pay for this n950? Its only for developers.

  2. Anderson says:

    I challenge you to play Kaizo Mario World ( using your emulator. You get past the first stage? 😀

  3. Ahnaf says:

    hi. does this mean you’ll stop developing for symbian 3/4 devices?
    I love your emulators and appreciate the effort and time you put into them. 😀

  4. ngoanrazor says:

    woa. Summeli, are you working for nokia?

  5. pH5 says:

    Nice interface! Any idea why the emulator hangs when sound is enabled?

    • Summeli says:

      I don’t know. it doesn’t hang for me… what game are you running? Sometimes the fps slows down a lot when the sound is enabled.

      • pH5 says:

        Sorry, false alarm. The game was Seiken Densetsu 3, but the next day I couldn’t reproduce this anymore. Now the game just runs sluggish for a few seconds after switching to the emulator. But I can reliably crash it by waiting for the screen to turn off or by pressing the power button while the emulator is running:

        • Summeli says:

          ok, it seems that there are still some problems with enable / disable swipe stuff. I should have something to prevent it to go into “inactive state” when the emu is running.

          • pH5 says:

            That sounds good. But the crash also happens when there is an incoming call or an alarm goes off while playing.

          • Summeli says:

            That kind of makes sense. I’m trying to put the emulator into pause (enter the menu) when the focus is lost (to save the battery). That stuff works with Symbian, but there seems to be some issues with Meego.

    hey summeli,and i8910

  7. goosepig says:

    Awesome work – this will be great when I finally get my hands on an N9!
    Is there any plans to port any of the Sega emulators such as PicoDrive? – That is easily the best emulator I have on my N900 🙂

    There are plans to port the playstation? there are games dendy, sega … for playstation, so why do these emulators if you can just make an emulator playstation for all consoles

    summeli i luv your work but plz don\t give up on symbian plz help us ppl’s on symbian …….and also i tried playing star ocean (english translation) n i got a black screen is there anyway to fix this? and i tried to find your patcher thingy and i cant find it can u plz make a vid 4 dummies like me on youtube PLZ N THX^_^XD

  12. lai says:

    hi, summeli. Since this is already running on harmattan could it be easily ported to fremantle without much hassle to you? Do you think it’s feasible?

  13. Rukia says:


  14. demona says:

    summeli can you do one for i8910 please

  15. Urho Kontori says:

    Would be very nice if you would allow users to add a rom as a shortcut to desktop. Once ROM loaded, add a button: add to desktop (or application grid). THen you would create a . desktop file to: $HOME/.local/share/applications that contains the launch instructions for it (and preferably some icon as well – perhaps a screenshot of running app?). Then the games that you use often would be easily accessible at same level as first grade applications.

  16. tam says:

    Why are you not making a Site on Facebook?
    There are a lot more people on Facebook than on Twitter.
    And what will you do now?
    Will you make a new Emulator (as example Gnuboy) for S^3 or a Update for the Meego Emulator?

  17. o.o says:

    summeli plz work on psx emu coz psx r worthy i dun think other emulators r worthy as psx emu x.x

  18. Lai says:

    Well, having AntSnes for fremantle would be great as an alternative. DrNokSnes is indeed really good, but is has some sound issues and some games dont run. Same with vgba on fremantle, but in that case the bugs are much, much worse. We really need an alternative for gba emulation.

  19. jhay06 says:

    can you make an antsnes for android too?thanks

  20. Tam says:

    Androıd have Antsnes already, just search
    Summeli is the only Person who made / make Emulators for S60V5 / S^3.

  21. Jiman says:

    Hi Summeli,
    I have try the emulator, it was great. some feedback from me:
    1. The buttons seem too small, if compare to emulator on E7. It made the button hard to press or easily press wrong key.
    2. The load rom Ui also too small, perhaps can made the font bigger will be nice.
    Finally, we are waiting for GPSP for meego. ^^

  22. Lucian says:

    Summeli,the big pad on s60v5 eat all the screen,(to play some games is horrible),so I have this idea:we dont need the big pad anymore,tne control pad of gpsp is perfect for AntSnes.You can take the control pad of gpsp for AntSnes,the control pad with transparent key will be awesome…and I saw the AntSnes for meego,why is the utility of swipe in the emulator?You can port for all AntSnes?By the way I think in this year you made a revolution with emulators compared with the last year.And were is clpalmer?And another thing:much thanks for all your FREE work,thanks Summeli!!!!!!!

  23. Krell says:

    Hi, witch version should I use on Nokia E63 Symbian OS 9.2, Series 60 v3.1 UI ?
    I manage to run older version 0.6(…) is there better version for my phone ?

  24. cansual says:

    hey summeli. I tried antsnes on the nokia n8 with the latest update belle, the emulator starts but you can’t play games. I’m sure that it’s possible to play with audio and 60 fps because the phone is faster. I think nokia has overcloock the cpu to 1gh. I hit 1.8gh with speedygo and over 4gh with the acceleration speed. Before i only got 1gh with the acceeration speed. What i try to say is, i think you should try the latest symbian update to create your emulators. This would be great to see your emulators working perfect

  25. cansual says:

    i can’t recomend it to but it works really fast and it’s 3 times faster in the speed test. I compared it with the symbian anna. Let’s wait for the official release than we can see the full changelog. And there’s a new task in the taskman wich is called qtappbooster. This is on anna and belle new, but you can’t see no big differences on the qt apps?

  26. Karma says:

    Summeli,you made 3 emulators all of nintendo;antsnes,gba,gb/gbc (unfinished).So why you dont made PicoDrive for s60v5/s^3?For you its just add the port for qt to enable SWevent,you now the picodrive is complete for devices with multitouch,you said than will just add bug fix to your emulator for s^3 and meego,dont forgot the s60v5.Anyway like I said the picodrive is complete with save state,screen options,highly compatility with roms,PERFECT audio with sequential options (better than your antsnes with full fps) scaling options,and much more…remaking the picodrive you will learn more of emulators.

  27. Manish says:

    I dont kno where to ask is there ny ngage emulator that runs both ngage QD & ngage 2.0 on S^3????
    there is one i kno ngage2.0 emulator for S60v5….& ngage QD emu for s60v2 phones…

  28. kadet89 says:

    PicoDrive and PS0ne for s^3 plz

  29. Drakaner says:

    Hi Summeli I have a samsung wave2. I cant open .sis files, just .jar. Did you have any ideas to make it compatible with Bada? It would be great, because you’re the first one he make an emu for Bada. Sorry for my bad english.

  30. o.o says:

    summeli can u check this site plz he’s make EmuMaster he’s planning to make all emulators in 1 and i guess with ur help its possible plz check it team up with him u can make this work plz check it

    • Summeli says:

      What’s there to see? I can not see any source code shared. There’s no way for me to help.
      I’m sure that the developer can find my antsnes code if he wants to integrate it with the emumaster.

    Nokia is dead, man! Now who rules the smartphones world it’s Samsung and Android, which Nokia refused to use like main operate system. Idiots! Stephen Elop it’s a idiot!

  32. GrimyHR says:

    does this play mario rpg? ‘cos drnoksnes doesn’t
    @luis69 nokia would be a much biger idiot if it went with crappy android, it should have stayed with maemo/meego and symbian and force them aggresively

  33. Fredrik says:

    Seeing it’s based on Snes9x 1.39 and now Snes9x 1.53 is available, will there be any “upgrades” so to speak? I don’t think 1.39 support the graphic encryption that Star Ocean use, for example, so it’s not playable.

  34. Never says:

    Hey, may you up AntSnes on Would be a nice addition 🙂
