Palm Pre Gets an NES Emulator!

Guys over that the Wiki dev page have gotton a world of hurt going on in their thumbs but at least they have something to show for it. The new linux based NES emulator for the Palm Pre. All that is required is a root on the device and then some code compiled, tweaked display settings and of the FCEUltra NES emulator for Linux and Tada, you find yourself in NES heaven.

So when will things like this be loaded via a installer application?

There doesn't appear to be enough info there for just anyone to follow to do to get it on the pre. Like are you doing that stuff on the pre or on a linux box and then somehow getting it on the pre? Or is it you have to be a uber linux expert to even begin to know how to follow those steps.

Looks to me he took a picture and is just viewing it...Good job.

I agree with ghost... this is in 2 player mode, and both players are in action (down and jumping) with no input from the person holding the device. pure sham, and engadget fell for it

I guess I have to take that back... I just watched the video they link to at the wikidot page. I guess it's kind of crappy so far, but still promising and I was quite wrong

look at the image again. The life/score counter for both players iscurrently replaced by 'game over' meaning it is the demo of the game if it is left at the title screen.
