No, the SH-2s are both 32-bit. So are the Saturn's VDPs. It does have a variant of the M68k in its sound suite, though, and as you said, that is 16-bit.

> The 65816 in the SNES is 16-bit.

Yes, but it only uses an 8 bit wide bus.

Maybe I should've changed my sig to Mario and Bowser before posting that...

That is correct. So the Saturn is 32-bit. The 32X is still 16-bit though, since the 68000 remains as the main CPU.

The Atari Jaguar uses a 64-bit bus. I'm only concerning myself with the main CPU/CPUs here to make it as strict and possibly inaccurate as possible.

Yes, I've seen this a couple of times. No one's really sent in any news about it, but I'm aware of its existence. We are not making a Nintendo DS emulator section yet for this emu, because of what you said: It does not emulate the Nintendo DS. We can put it under GBA emulators, but I don't think we've added it yet.

Well, just keep in mind that according to the measure by which the SNES CPU is 16-bit (ALU and register width), the 68k is 32-bit. Similarly, according to the measure by which the 68k is 16-bit (bus width), the 65816 is 8-bit.

I don't like this game anymore.

Personally, yes, I don't feel he should count his chickens probably WAY before they're hatched in this case, but that doesn't mean he shouldn't try to emulate the DS at all. And btw, the emulator is going to have to emulate the GBA anyway as the DS uses it's processor in tandem with it's own, and can utilize many of it's graphics modes.

At any rate, maybe this guy does have 'brass ones' but ya know, I can think of way worse things than someone creating an emulator. You act like he's a damn Nazi or something.

NO DSEMU FOR YOU!

Um, well, no one can even get homebrew code onto the thing at ALL, let alone start making emulators. It would seem that people are getting close to cracking the wireless, and therefore closer to sending MB code using the Wireless Download Play function, but nothing yet, and no one is really close yet to a DS flashcart as far as I can tell.
