N64 emulator?

I know the ipad has a n64 emulator but its complete garbage. I've seen n64oid on android devices and it looks amazing. Even nook tablets run it. Why isn't someone working on one for the ios? The emulator we have currently is pretty much unplayable.

Yep, i totally agree with you man. The one available right now is shit.

Seeing as the current ios devices are getting more powerful, shouldn't be too diffucult for an n64oid port?

I could see the iPad running an n64 emu but with as many buttons as it has, theyd take up too much screen real estate. Still, I would love to play Castlevania 64 on my iPhone.

Maybe someone doesn't reckon it's worth their time to spend coding an emulator just to have it pirated the shit out of.

that applies to most apps aswell.

If you ask me I think he lost his determination to continue updating his apps regularly when google suspended his google devolopers account last year for the andriod platform losing him lots of potential revenue from andriod apps, also if you read his twitter its obvious he puts more effort into other things rather than update his apps, shame really as its an easy fix to at least update the control scheme so it emulates the directional stick rather than using the accelerometer.

The vast majority of emulators, at least when they are found outside of an app store, are and have always been free and open source. Most have been coded by the type of ppl that just want to prove it was possible and that they could do it. I remember there being one psx emulator that was packaged and sold on store shelves, but was pulled from retail after Sony sued or something along those lines.

It seems weird that there would be so many willing people to make an emu for android, but only one person for iPhone!

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

I really don't know how you can put out an emulator for N64 as there are so many buttons.
