• Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich hands-on (video)

    The Galaxy Nexus (formerly referred to as the Nexus Prime) carries on the Nexus torch in spectacular fashion, and we've just spent a few quality moments with one here at the launch event. Design-wise, it's clear that the Nexus S DNA is here, though the rear reminds us most of the Galaxy S II. Those who abhor physical buttons will also be delighted, and while we'd gotten used to the whole Power + Home for a screenshot on the GSII, Power + Volume Down works just fine on this fellow.......

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now official, tons of enhancements

    PSHax member - Google has taken the stage in Hong Kong to make the next version of Android OS, nicknamed Ice Cream Sandwich, a thing of reality. Better known as Android 4.0, the update offers a massive redesign to the user interface and adds a plethora of new features. Some of the highlights include an NFC-enabled feature called Android Beam, offline search in Gmail, new lock screen features and a fancy unlocking method called "Face Unlock," which uses facial recognition to ensure strangers can't use your phone without permission. Ice Cream Sandwich also includes enhancements in.....

  • Motorola RAZR to get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012

    Mutricy mentioned that while the company's new flagship device was designed for Gingerbread, plans have been set to introduce the latest version of Android in the start of 2012, with a more precise date naturally on its way. Given past experience, however, it's probable that the unbranded version of the device will get the refresh ahead of the Droid RAZR on Verizon, so US users may need to exercise a wee bit of patience here. Regardless, it's time for the competition to step up......

  • HTC Rezound render resoundingly revealed- wait next November 10th

    Hark! The first renders of the HTC Rezound have appeared online, thanks to some of the device's cases going up for pre-order. You can see that, like the Sensation XE, the phone has red-glowing soft keys -- a bit of a departure from HTC's traditionally conservative design language. If you recall, the phone formerly called Vigor is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Beats Audio and an 8MP rear camera.....

paulscode from ngemu.com porting Mupen64Plus to Android

Posted by Mohd Khairun Nasir Saadi On - - 0 comments

It's just a matter of time when Android user to enjoy Nintendo 64 game on their Android Device. Still a lot of job to be done. Of course it will be not perfect at this moment. But take a look at DaedalusX64 a Nintendo 64 for PSP nowadays. Nothing impossible :)

Here's what paulscode say's

Having been out of the emulation scene for a few years, I recently decided to play some of my old N64 ROMs. I went with Mupen64Plus 1.99.3 for the emulator, and I was so impressed with the program that I had to dig around in the source code. I really like the modular nature of this library - it is perfectly structured to facilitate porting to new systems.

I've decided to take a crack at porting it to Android, using the NDK (so I can use native c/c++ directly rather than having to translate the entire project into Java). I realize that current devices are probably not at a level to run N64 emulation smoothly yet, but by the time I finish the port, who knows?

I'll be using pelya's Android SDL port, which doesn't require the target device to be rooted (allowing for easy distribution through the Android Market and avoiding any licensing/warranty concerns that can come with rooting). My initial challenge is translating the Makefiles used by the Mupen64Plus source into NDK-speak (I'm rather new to the whole Makefile concept, so it will be a bit of an initial learning curve). I'll post my progress on this project here. Comments and suggestions are welcome. Also, if anyone else is already working on an Android port of Mupen64Plus, I'd be happy to collaborate.
