Following the release of his port of Fuse, the Spectrum emulator, Chris Gransden has busied himself with porting another emulator to RISC OS. This time, it’s a port from the Unix version of Mednafen, a command line driven multiple system emulator that provides support for OpenGL and SDL graphics, network play, re-mappable input configuration, joystick and keyboard support, save states, game rewinding, GSF playback, and screenshots.
Platforms emulated by Mednafen include:
- Atari Lynx
- GameBoy (Color)
- GameBoy Advance
- Neo Geo Pocket (Color)
- NES, both NTSC and PAL
- PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16 (CD) and SuperGrafx
- WonderSwan (Color)
Chris says that the emulator will run most games at playable frame rates on BeagleBoard (such as ARMini) or Pandaboard based machines, and that to run it you may also need UnixHome, SharedUnixLibrary and DRenderer.
