Pepper 2.1 software: livin’ it up in emulator land

So I ended up on the pre-release list for the Pepper 2.1 software. The new apps and features are there, and the pad is a whole lot more responsive in general.

But what I was really looking for were pre-build development libraries and include files, and I sure did get them. I compiled FCE Ultra, one of the premiere NES emulators, and also managed to build the Allegro library and then the FakeNES emulator without too much extra effort. They both run but a lot of frames are dropped. But still, I’m one step closer to my goal of using the Pepper as an awesome portable game system for emulation.

  1. Werd. Rock on, my friend. 🙂 We’re in the middle of our release cycle for the official Pepper 2.1 update coming out next week but afterwards I’d like to RPM up some of the stuff you’ve been working on for Pepper Hacks.

  2. Intriguing. 🙂

    On a side note, FCE Ultra is outdated. It became Nintencer, which became Mednafen.
