Atari 2600 VCS Emulator for SONY PlayStation 2 :


After successfully porting M.A.M.E. to the Sony PlayStation 2 I just had to try and port my generic Atari VCS 2600 emulator. The results are good. I’ve mapped the video display on to a cube that can be rotated around as you play. With VSync turned off the emulator runs at well over 300 frames per second, and whilst I have yet to do it, I could conceivably place different games on each side of the cube and still have it run at 60 fps with a little optimisation.

I took a few pictures of the Atari VCS emulator with a handheld digital camera — sorry about the camera shake and poor lighting. ^_^;

Note that “Wizard of Wor” and “Space Invaders” are rotated around on the cube. Makes it difficult to play but interesting to watch. Hmmm… that gives me an idea for a game design! =^_^=
