Default Emulators for touch screens

Let's talk about them.
I own a Nexus one and personally I am still unable to play games because there is only an A and B key, and the dpad is all the way up by the top now.

Personally since i own an ipod touch, I wouldn't mind being able to have the buttons lay almost upon the game itself, and taking more of a model from some of the ipod emulators.
Just me though

In case you are wondering what i mean... take a look at these (i'll update screenshots as I go along)
SNES

If you can see it, the controller layout is preserved and isn't just a uniform controller layout. And the landscape puts the buttons on top of the game. (my only complaint is that there isn't an option to scrunch it up so the buttons aren't on top during landscape)

N64 one is a toughy but this is what i got (It's hard because some devs have used an accelerometer others crammed it onto it like that. The other one is basically a SNES controller with accelerometer controls for the yellow arrows i think.


and the NES emulator looks almost identical to what we have now.

Being this, yongzh is doing a great job, but there is a need for updated controls. At the moment, I think people need to wait and stop bugging for a ps1 emu that they KNOW their phone will lag up with, and let the touch screen controls be worked on and tweaked. At the moment i have refunded everything, since it is just too hard to play any of it at the current thing, especially with the button locations and limited phone space i have.

Thoughts? Ideas?

I have a nexus as well, and I have snesoid. I would like the setup you are describing, cuz as of now it's pretty much impossible to play any games with thee two buttons they give you, even mario is a stretch because I cant hold down the y button and press b at the same time (i guess multi touch cant handle the d pad and two buttons at the same time). I haven't played any emulators on the ipod but I can imagine anything is better than the current touch screen only android ones.

I noticed that too, though i don't think the ipod ones allow triple touch. I'd have to check.

I emailed yongzh yesterday and he told me that if you update to Android 2.0 then all emulators by him have multi-touch. By the way.

Well it's getting there. But when i do widescreen, then the A and B buttons lag out. I'd just love to see some improvement of the control scheme, such as this.
