  • SNES HD for iPad Demo : Use Your iPhone As The Controller
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlcigMvkkoU]YouTube - SNES (HD) Demo[/ame]

    I've enjoyed playing SNES on my iPhone but never really felt fully satisfied. The biggest pain was trying to cram all of the controls and the gameplay video into the iPhone's screen. We saw the surfacing of the iControlPad for users who wanted more control. While the iPhone did the job, it wasn't the best in the end. But of course, with the Jailbroken iPad comes all sorts of possibilities. Wherethewoozlewasnt has posted a preview of his new port for the iPad called SNES HD.

    The app is a port from the famous Super Nintendo emulator Snes9x we've all used on our PC's for years and is based on Zodttd's original. What is unique about this app, is the ability to pair it with your iPhone or iPod touch, thus making your iDevice become a wireless controller, using your iPad as the playing screen.

    As you can see in the video, upon launching the app, a request is sent out to the iPhone to be paired for gameplay. This can be done for up to 4 DEVICES! Yes, that's right, 4 players! While not entirely fully tested, wherethewoozlewasnt has posted a link to the source code on his website where you can get your hands on it and test it out.

    The app looks really slick and even shows an Super Nintendo system ready for a game cartridge to be inserted!

    *Note, do not link to roms on here. If your looking for links, check out the video.

      This guy is definitely on to something with this whole, using the iPhone/ iPod touch as a controller thing. It's a good idea. No clue why it wasn't thought of faster. But I'm not one to talk....

      fyi; all ROMs/emulator games are completely illegal.
      also, buying/downloading/ripping roms yourself, is also illegal and has a copyright violation connected to it-- even if you own the game and/or system.

      take a look

      This is cool, i love it! Its a great concept but my gripe with having no tactile feedback on buttons extends to this. Just tried to play mario kart on it and struggled to get thru the first race on 4 lives! Overstear city :P

Props to the guy that spent countless hours between the porting and bluetooth iphone dongle.....but if anything this motivates me less to get an ipad. Port it on my desktop that I have connected to my 55" LED TV and give me a physical remote with buttons. The guy blamed losing on talking while playing....but it looks like the remote size will make everybody feel like they have fat thumbs. Does anyone stand playing an emulator on the iphone or itouch? I couldn't stand it having to look where my fingers fall and the hole "lift and press" instead of sliding your thumb to the next button. Haha...imagine trying to do the FATALITIES on the ported mortal kombat....lol, i'm laughing right now thinking about it
      Because the lady is watching Law & Order on the 55" LED, and as long as I'm "spending time with her" thats why I'm playing SNES on my iPad on the couch next to her, capice?

      i don't like the delay when you hit a button on the iphone. other than that it's pretty cool, if there was a way to fix the delay then that would be great.
