============================
Hello everyone !
Rather than make a new thread each time i port an SDL application/game to Ti nspire,
i have decided to make a single topic where i will post everything i did.

PokeMini

PokeMini is a pokémon mini emulator by justburn.
It works pretty fast and doesn't require a bios.

The last mission

The last mission is a game originally made by PEDRO RUIZ for DOS/MSX2.
It was reprogrammed by Dmitry Smagin in C/SDL.
Full description :
Spoiler For Spoiler:
You control a tank-like robot which can be divided in two: you rotate caterpillar and
head-cannon, and the head part can fly off on its own. However, the head can only
survive separately for a short amount of time, and your restart position is dictated by the
location of the body, even if the head has moved forward through further screens.
Therefore, the difficulty of the game was in making it possible to advance with the
assembled robot's two parts.

Source code : https://gameblabla.olympe.in/files/lastmission-src.zip

Make sure to read the readme for each game/app !
Enjoy

Hello,
I have finished the port of OSwan and i have improved the last mission as well.

Oswan


Oswan is a GPL'd Wonderswan emulator.
The games are running pretty cool though i would still recommend to overclock your nspire.

Source code : https://github.com/gameblabla/oswan

The last mission
The last mission was also improved and the framerate is more consistent now.
Download link is the same, refer to my previous post.

That's all !
I'm sure you'll like my port of Oswan, even though most games don't run fullspeed.
Now i'm working on Handy again...

Enjoy

Any chance of you porting/making an SNES emu? That's what the Nspire really needs.

Well, there's already a NES emulator for NSpire (not quite a SNES emulator, but it could be a starting point):

How to install NESpire emulator on a ti nspire!!!

There is only one SNES emulator that works both fast enough and supports most games: Snes9x.
ZSNES is x86 only, so it won't work on Nspires. I tried a quick port of Snes9x, but didn't succeed, all I got out of it was a frozen black screen.

No SNES emulators will run at decent speed on TI nspire.
Snes9x is not very fast, even the older versions.
We will have to wait the ZSNES team to complete the C/C++ rewrite before we can talk about having a decent SNES emulator on TI nspire.

Speaking about the NES, i did tried to port FCEUX but i failed because C++ support in Ndless is limited and lacking so i can't port it yet.
So yeah.

Well, gpSP runs pretty well (for some games) and the gameboy advance is more powerful then the SNES (someone even made a SNES emu for the GBA)  so a SNES emu should be feasible.

Except for threads everything should be working. What doesn't work?

Nevermind, i forgot to pass -std=c++11 to the compiler.
I wasn't able to compile it though...
Using g++ ( GCC 4.8 ) works just fine but with nspire-g++ ( GCC 4.9 ), i'm getting lots of "undefined to" errors when linking.
This is what i was trying to compile by the way : https://github.com/dmitrysmagin/fceu320-rzx50

Finding a good emulator is not easy : They either don't use SDL, don't have a gui or they are too complicated.

You have to resolve them in a case-by-case basis. It's not the compilers fault.

Definitely not, emulators are complex by nature.

I have ported Zboy to TI Nspire.
Zboy is a portable gameboy emulator by Mateusz Viste.

Yeah i know, why would you want to use a slower emulator when we already have one that is good enough ?
Because i wanted to see if SDL File browser could be used for porting command-line only emulators.

Only Gameboy classic games are emulated, this is a limitation of Zboy.
It works and you can try it by download it in the attachments below.
Be warned though, it's very slow.

Now maybe i'll give the numerous versions of Snes9x a try...

You might want to consider getting a GitHub account (if you don't already have one) and putting these projects up there.

Hello guys,
Just want to let you know I have sucessfully ported Dgen to TI nspire !

Dgen

Dgen is a megadrive/genesis emulator using SDL.
On Ti nspire, it can already run most of the megadrive/genesis games but it's very, very slow.
Instructions on how to use it is inside the readme.

I already have a github and i was already considering this. I think i'll do it, thanks ivoah.
