    Hello, does anyone know if the iPhone cpu is powerful enough to support SNES emulation?
    NES games are nice, but SNES has really incredibly addictive games...
    With titles like Seiken Densetsu 3, Chrono Trigger or Zelda, that would totally blow!

    I guess one way to find out is to find an open source SNES emulator (like InfoNES) and port it in a similar manner and see what happens.

    It is, afaik it has 620 MHz . The iPhone is nearly 2x faster, than the Nokia N95. ARM Processors with that amount of power should be able to emulate the SNES, MAME and Co. BUT it takes alot of experience to write proper (and fast) code.

    Thats great,
    I suppose that it would also be possible to emulate GBA then, that would make the iPhone so much more desirable for me!

    Here's the problem with emulating video game systems on the iPhone: no buttons. What they did with the NES emulator is innovative and brilliant, IMO. BUT, that doesn't work as well for other systems. You may be able to get a reasonable experience emulating NES, Genesis, GameBoy and other systems that have simple controllers, but how would an emulator provide a playable experience for SNES when it has four more buttons than the NES controller? Same goes for the GBA.

    Making a virtual controller is hard enough as is. Unless someone takes the idea of creating an external controller via the dock connector, you're unlikely to be able to play SNES, GBA, etc. games because there just isn't enough space on the screen for the controls.

    Ok, been hard at work here. I've come up with this layout.

    When you launch the app, you get none other than Coverflow for your games.


    So, you choose a game, and it launches in a layout like this:


    And, if you need to go back to the game list or restart the game, click the red Nintendo at the top. The game suspends and a menu pops up:


    I realize this is far fetched for 3rd party apps right now, but it's just an idea and would be cool to incorporate some or all of these ideas when possible.
    Nice photoshop! I hope this becomes reality.

    I did it very easy, first I created a folder on my Desktop and named it "ROMs".
    Inside ROMs I created a new folder called "NES". When you download Nintendo Roms from the internet you unzip them or whatever and leave them in the NES folder with nothing more than they're name and the ".nes" fileextension.

    Then you can for example use this command when NOT logged into your iPhone through SSH

    scp -rp desktop/ROMs root@10.0.1.199:/var/root/Media

    Remember to correct the IP

    BUT OVER TO MY QUESTION:
    Could someone tell me how to install sound ?

    Already is a reality!

    There is a new version here: http://www.modmyiphone.com/forums/do...do=file&id=354
    With the new button setup (and a landscape mode)
    AND WITH SOUND!
    ..but only with headphones and you have to disable mediaserverd, but I don't know how.

    The README says this:

    headphones. A couple of easy aliases can be added to your .profile to disable or
    re-enable mediaserverd if you are using MobileShell:

    alias \
    nosound="/bin/launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/coreaudiod.plist"

    alias \
    sound="/bin/launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/coreaudiod.plist"
    What is .profile?
