Why add FPGAs when for the most part emulators can be done fine the old fashioned way? As has been stated already in the thread, there would be no efficient way to make the FPGAs interface with onboard memory, and using FPGAs gives you much less flexible emulators anyway.YakumoFuji said:while we are adding shit, can I get a couple of spartan 3e 1000k chips added? that would make emus really kick ass.
i mean, if were adding all this extra other useless shit, why not add something worthwhile??
that would seriously ROCK and be unique amongst handheld gaming devices.
Look at the "Gameport", a handheld that uses FPGAs only to handle old platforms that can easily be done well enough with a normal CPU (actually, don't know if anything became of this.. the website seems down).
Besides that, writing for FPGAs has got to be pretty hard. Then again, I'm not an engineer.
