DraStic: new DS emu for Android

Recommended Posts

Exophase and Lordus will be soon releasing a port of the DS emu DraStic to Android.

It will be awesome, buttery smooth, packing high compatibility and totally paid (they ran out of cheap noodles).

 

With desktop-based emus still generally free and the donation faucets reportedly dry, mobile marketplaces are becoming increasingly more compelling alternatives to fund project development and gain some livelihood from previously ungrateful hobbies.

It's unlikely it will work well, as it's be touch-dependant and the small touch surface on gamepads won't do.

PPSSPP will come out on Ouya in v0.9, not DraStic. Sorry about that.

With Google, Gamestick, Ouya, Mad Catz project M.O.J.O. and supposedly Apple coming out with game console's you would think the developer would have to implement controller support at some point.

It wouldnt make a lot of sense other than for the stick control, as the devices targetted lack either touchpads or sticks (we're emulating the DS here and extremely few own the accessories you mentioned).

This might change after Android 4.3 is released, as it seems it features a handful of standardized gaming-related functionalty, which could help compatibility between accesories rather than require implementing support for each separately (same problem DirectInput resolved on Windows).

Can't wait to try this out on my quad core tab. Looks like he is going to charge $8 for it. Well worth it if it works as posted.

Seems it works really nicely on mobiles with large screens and pens, like Galaxy Notes. Not sure about input precision but it's not been reported to be problematic.
