When following the step-by-step instructions for Midp3Exe to which I linked above, midp2exe worked perfectly for me, other than the screen not being resizable. I tried it with multiple games. It works.

Next up I'll try the mpowerplayer one. You need Java installed for this one. Aaaand.... yep, this one also works fine for me (No sound on my Linux netbook, but that must be because Java is misconfigured on my netbook, because the sound works fine for me on my XP laptop.) Once again, screen not resizable.

Those are the easiest ones. As for the SDK, let's see... I'd better double-check that I have Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 or higher already installed... yup... ok, downloading the Wireless SDK..... double-clicking on sun_java_wireless_toolkit-2.5.2_01-win.exe... installing (oops, I wasn't logged on as Administrator)...done. Now I go to Start Menu > Sun Java(TM) Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2_01 for CLDC > Run MIDP Application

Ok, this one apparently requires a .jad file along with the .jar. Ok, I'm testing with Zelda Mobile... and it works fine. Yet again, the screen size isn't configurable, but otherwise it works perfectly. (Wow, Zelda Mobile sure sounds incredibly better on my laptop than it does on my phone.)

If you have Windows XP (and Java 1.4.2 or higher for the Java programs) all three of these should work fine. (Except the toolkit one requires a .jad (Java Archive Descriptor) file in addition to the .jar (Java ARchive) file. Basically the .jad contains some name and version info. Some phones need it, many don't.)
