    Since the Droid Eris lacks the physical keyboard, I'm wondering if Snesoid, Nesoid or Gensod work at all on the Eris? Anyone give them a try?

    I do believe that the newest versions of those emulators have onscreen controls.

    Thanks, that's good to hear. Has anyone tried it out? Are the touch screen controls very responsive?

    I have... but don't trying playing anything that requires using two inputs like mario jumping and running... since there isn't multitap it makes it really hard doing this. But things like Pokemon where you are doing one input at a time works great

    Nope, it's really frustrating. I gave up trying to configure controls. The issue with this is that your game selections are severely reduced.

    Sadly yeah. No Muti-tap means no fun for Emulators and ROMs. I downloaded the emulator for my Eris and downloaded allot of ROMs of my favorite games. But.. it was very hard to play.. even the simple ones like Darius Twin or my favorite Final Fantasy IV was hard as heck to play. Donkey Kong Country played actually fairly well. Considering it's intense graphics for the SNES system. I was impressed.

    Maybe one day it will work. One day. lol

    It is fun though to play around with it. Try new games and old ones. You just might find one that is worth playing on it. Like Duck Hunt. ;)

    Why does multi-touch work in the browser but not the emulators? Is it because the author needs to update the app?

    My thoughts exactly. The Eris does have multi-touch, so why isn't it working on the emulators when the IPhone works perfectly. You're even given a make shift controller on the screen

    I figure Multi-Touch isn't available to program by the developers of the apps. It may be a code or something not yet released by Google/HTC for anyone to program. The theory is, if the phone does it, your app can do it. So hopefully if this is not the case, Multi-Touch will be available to Developers with the 2.0+ release for the Eris this year. Let’s hope.

    I play SNESoid. It has JUST enough buttons to play.

    This is what you have to do though. You have to enable the virtual D-pad and/or use the trackball (I use both). Due to the un-goodness of these as controls, you really won't be able to play games that really require a lot of d-pad work.

    This is how I configured controls:
    Send-A
    Trackball button- B
    Search-X
    Back-Y
    Volume up- L
    Volume Down-R

    These controls work perfectly. like I said there are JUST enough buttons. I usually just play Final Fantasy III...

    You're game playability is going to be limited but it works.

    How do you have your controls set up?

    It works, controls stink. It's the eris's lack of buttons

    In summary. It blows, but it's simultaneously awesome for having SNES games wherever I have my phone.

    If you want a mobile SNES though, get CFW on a PSP. The psp is the exact set-up as a SNES controller.
