    I'm having a problem with my Eris -

    Rooted or not, I have run into consistent problems with choppy game play.

    Even Sonic is choppy! Overclocked too!

    I wonder, am I missing something?

    Or is this phone less powerful than a Sega Genesis?!

    I'd like to enjoy these emulators, but it is extremely frustrating.

    Help!

    Does no one else experience choppy game play?

    Sorry not much you can do. The Eris has very old CPU. Same as the old G1 (first google phone ever made)

    Either emulator or phone is at fault. It is possible to have a not very efficient emulator. But in any case, you will have to stick to emulating less complex consoles.

    I'm talking Sonic being choppy. :p

    If my phone can't run a 16 bit console emulator then I am baffled.:mad:

    After 20 years, I'd hope Sonic isn't graphically complicated.:thinking:

    Maybe they should make an Atari emulator. (lol):cool:


    Oh well.:rolleyes:

    All android apps are written in a variant of Java which is not the fastest language but it is cross platform.

    Emulators written for the PC are typically written in C, C++ or sometimes even assembly. All of which are much faster than Java as they can be tuned to the specific architecture of the processor and are precompiled into binary code. If someone could write some apps that run in binary mode on the eris tuned for the ARM processor, you should not see the lag but you could risk some system stability as it will run outside of the protections of the android environment.

    If/When 2.2 with the new Dalvik system is ported to the Eris, these things should probably go away.
