    Hiya all at AndroidCentral!

    I'm ZodTTD. I port/program most of the emulators on the iPhone.
    Recently there was a petition ( here ) to have me bring PSX, N64, and the VLC media player to the Android platform. With over 1800 signatures I started work on PSX a few days ago.

    With the help of the author of the Android Marketplace's GameBoid (GBA emu) and Nesoid (NES emu) I have been able to get my Sony Playstation 1 emulator up and running.

    It's currently within GameBoid's framework... So things are still a bit early, but it won't be long until a PSX controller skin, some features are added, and polish is given for a release.

    Note that this release will be for Android 2.x and will require a recent CPU such as the Cortex A8 or Snapdragon.

    I really would like to get the news out about this, especially to communicate with the 1800 people who signed the petition.

    With pics inside, here's the news article link to reference:

    Didn't sign the petition, but I could only dream of seeing certain PS1 or N64 games running on a phone. You'll have my money.

    How is the overall performance/framerate?

    Here's some info that I just posted to androidforums as well...

    I still have a lot of games to test but so far so good in compatibility area. I say 3 out of 4 games run but it's higher than that to some degree. With a library of 1000's of games it gets tough to tell. Especially when lots of specific games are wanted and then there's 1000 junk titles.

    I now have sound working as well. Needs to be tweaked for sure since it has gaps in it during MDEC (psx movies) playback. Hoping it's a buffering issue, if so it's fixed easily. In fact while typing this I might have figured out why. :P

    My biggest concern is performance. I need to squeeze some more FPS still in games like Ridge Racer. Games like Buster Bros Collection and even Final Fantasy 7 are running well.

    Will keep at it!

    If anything pushed me to getting Android, it was this. Thanks a million, can't wait to see the final results.

    PS1, Breath of Fire 3 & 4 would be awesome.
