Default DSemu is the best emulator ever.

http://dsemu.oopsilon.com/Check it out.</a>

The author has to have big fucking brass ones for even coming out with it. First of all, it's a Gameboy DS emulator that doesn't emulate the Gameboy DS. It emulates the Gameboy Advance - shittily - and it will emulate the DS "eventually". Seriously, take a look at the site, it says that it will "eventually emulate a Nintendo DS on many platforms." Well, then why are you calling it DSemu, you fuck? Oh, even better, he has a PayPal donation icon on his website so that he can eat, as if that sob story hasn't been done to death already. Yeah, buddy, how about you get rid of the internet connection and sell that computer that you're doing the development on, and get a job? There's some good food money right there.

But I digress. The real topper on all of this is that in this guy's eyes, changing literally nothing warrants a new version number. I swear to god, I'm not making this shit up. Check out the site, it says, "Ok, so maybe I haven't actually changed any code, but it was still high time I versioned up." Yeah, thanks, buddy. We really appreciate the hard work that you're putting into this, not changing the code and all.

That said, I've come up with a few suggestions for emulators that the author could work on once he finishes DSemu:
1) GCNemu, the GameCube emulator that actually emulates the Super Nintendo.
2) XBemu, the XBox emulator that emulates the Atari 2600.
3) SFCemu, the Super Nintendo emulator that emulates the Colecovision.
4) PS3emu, the Playstation 3 emulator that emulates the Gameboy Color.

How about you guys come up with some, too?

Someone already decided to take a shot at DSemu (because it didn't emulate all of the buttons) and I criticized them for it.

But the way you put it, it's funny. So I'll just laugh at this.

Actually, I'm really eager (though it would take a while) to have someone come out with some console emulators FOR the DS. Think of it... taking SNES and N64 games wherever you go! It would be really neat if someone figured out how to tap into the touch screen and make a program that would allow programable buttons for games such as N64 games! This leads me to another question...
I've seen SNES emulators for the GBA, but how can you play SNES games with only A and B buttons?

If they use all four main buttons and the shoulder buttons, you don't. It's slow, buggy and lacks any kind of sound anyway. I'd much rather see a good GBC emulator for the GBA.

But think about it, do you think that DS emulators would be made soon like I said earlier? If that happened, I would have good reason to save up for one.

I got a cool one I bet someone will surely do:

TOWA (which stands for The Other Way around) - The Gamecube emulator for the Nintendo Entertainment system!

Imagine, running a 21st century console in the same console you played Super Mario Bros 3! How cool would that be.

GrandRoyale The multiple console emulator for your lcd watch! Play videogames at the same time you check the hour! Isn't that a wonderful idea?

Yeah, I am going OOC, but I could not resist.

Has there even been a system over 32-bit yet?

You are killing the joke. I kind of changed it, to prevent nitpickers to be...picking around.

Wasn't the N64? Well, I know the Gecko in the Gamecube is a 64-bit processor at least.

The Nintendo 64 used a 64-bit processor (though the vast majority of games only used the 32-bit capabilities, meaning they'd run on an identical processor with the 64-bit part removed, which is exactly what 1964 can do).

The PlayStation 2 can do 128-bit integer (very slowly) and 64-bit floating point.

The Dreamcast is considered by many to be 128-bit, but the SH4 is actually 64-bit.

The GameCube is actually 32-bit, but does two calculations per clock cycle. Still, neither is greater than 32 bits in length.

The Xbox is 32-bit. The Pentium Pro, MMX and SSE instructions can make it 'effectively 80-bit', but it's still actually 32-bit.

The Saturn uses twin SH2s, which I believe are both 16-bit, which would make it a 16-bit console.

The PlayStation uses an R3000, which is 32-bit.

The Jaguar used a 68000 as the main processor, which was 16-bit.

The 65816 in the SNES is 16-bit.

The Genesis used a 68000, which is well known to be 16-bit.

The Neo-Geo AES is another 68000 console, 16-bit.

The TurboGrafx-16 used a HuC6280, which was 8-bit.
