ZodTTD has found his niche in building emulators for the iPhone platform. Within months, he’d ported over pocket friendly versions of the SNES, Genesis, N64, Playstation, while somehow finding time to build things like an iPhone version of the VLC media player.
Now, after much demand by his fans, he’s building things for Android. His first project? An Playstation emulator.
Zod is collaborating with the author of the already well established NESoid/GameBoid emulators on the project, providing a pretty stable codebase for the stuff that ZodTTD brings to the table.
As you might’ve guessed, the PSX emulator requires some pretty beefy hardware. ZodTTD says it’s already running at a faster clip on the Nexus One than it is on the iPhone, and more optimizations are going to be made before release, but if your handset’s not packing a Cortex A8 or Snapdragon processor, don’t expect a reasonable framerate.
The pictures show the emulator running on a Nexus One. The touch control’s “skin” is currently that of the emulator GameBoid, and is not final. There will be a Sony Playstation 1 specific skin before release with all buttons needed for playing games on this game console.
