Notsure SGS2 Emulator solutions? HELP!!

Hi, noticed a few people (myself included) having probs with emulators on the galaxy S2. If anyone can post a list of compatible emus it'd be a great help! Heres what i have so far:

PS1 / PSX emu - FPSE works great, except the d-pad sucks. download from marketplace then download scph1001 bios and put it on your SD card along with roms (.bin, .iso, .img all seem to work), select bios to activate it and most games should play

SNES emu - SNES9X EX is the only one i could get to work, really straight forward and plays everything so far...

Nintendo DS emu - NDS4DROID works (surprisingly), although it is horrifically slow. button in top left will switch between regular controls and full touchscreen. gta was well laggy, only games like pokemon would be playable so i got it refunded

These are the only ones i have got working, and i have tried a lot!! Please anyone with others working post details on this thread I am mainly after a sega genesis / mega drive emulator but none of them seem to work. Also cannot get MGS to work for PSX

The NDS emulator probably doesn't work that good yet because the app is not programmed to use dual-core so its only using one, so In the future it'll be better. NOTE im not sure if its not already programmed for two cores, but my guess is its not.

GameBOID works fine, as does N64oid (you won't be able to get that unless you'd previously purchased it from the Market though, re-release meant to happen this month). The Phonejoy game controller works great with the emulators, really makes them a lot more fun (can't wait for my MHL adapter, then I will have such a nice portable games console!).

I vote for n64oid.

I had hoped to use my Wii remote but alas, it doesn't work with the SGS2 so I bought a Zeemote for the grand sum of 7 on eBay. It's not as good as a proper PS3 type controller (surprise, surprise) and indeed I've only managed get the joystick and not the buttons working so far, but it's fun playing Mario Kart 64 on the tube with it.

No rooting neccessary, just needs the Bluez IME app installed.

Just a quick update, i now have most emulators running on my GS2 now

'GENplusdroid' has just come out and gives flawless sega emulation across mega drive/genesis and master system games. Initially i was only getting sound but after emailing developer Stephen Damm he had it fixed and updated in a couple of hours!! Big thanks for that, been trying to get mega drive on this phone since launch day! Appears to have <50 downloads and totally underrated but dont let that put you off! 'NESdroid' also gives good emulation from the same developer.

On a different note, i only just managed to get MGS working on FPSe (PSX emu). It seems to be a common problem - game used to load with no sound and then crash at 'new game'. Heres my fix:

- go to settings > system ... disable EVERYTHING.

- settings> audio ... SPU sync must be enabled

This will bring back the sound and allow the game to run. As always the bios needs to be set (see first post). For optimum graphics do the following:

- settings > video ... enable framelimiter, but no frameskip. Now enable 'screen filtering', 'sharp overlay' and 'enhanced 3d rendering'

A recent FPSe update has also fixed the stick settings for the controller - i can finally play resi 2 dual shock!! Few games still crash but this is definitely the best feature on my phone.

Now i just need to get MAME (arcade emu) working, anyone had any luck with that? Also does anybody use DOSbox or the android OS emus? Im curious to know if/how well they work!!

Can't help you with PSP, since there's no emulator yet (or ever).

TMNT I...don't know. Lots of TMNT games came out on lots of consoles with cartridges.

FPSE is the PS1 emulator to use. You don't need root. Google "FPSE apk" or buy it on Android for $4-ish. The first post of this thread basically says it. If you download it from google, make sure to enable "Unknown Sources" in Settings -> Applications.

I'll get FPSE soon, I'm sure Dodgem Arena will be a great game to run on the S2's smaller screen (compared to TV set).

Just been using a Phoneoy myself the past few days, very fun to use, very easy to set up and ALMOST perfect (the control has some issues with FPS games)

Hey everyone!

I was wondering how you got on using the emulators with the MHL cable? Did you manage to get it working with HDMI out to a TV?

Have you tried using the SGS2 emulators with two bluetooth controllers connected for retro multiplayer in any of the emulators?

Thanks in advance for any response!

Cheers
