  • 3G4: N64 Emulator for iPhone 3GS [Preview]


    3G4, is a Nintendo 64 emulator developed by NWorksDev, for the iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 3rd Gen. Yup, your gonna need some juice for this bad boy!

    Just recently there was a video released that demos the project thus far. It appears to be legit and runs incredibly smooth. The controller layout looks great and saves screen real estate. However, there are no L, R, or Z buttons at the moment.

    The developer claims to be 14 years old, and says that "something deemed impossible is being brought to us by a 14 year old developer". Unfortunately he has said the release will not be until April 2010.

    3G4 could possibly become first native Nintendo 64 emulator for the iPhone 3GS and the iPod Touch 3G. ZodTTD has also been working on a Nintendo 64 Emulator, but unfortunately we have heard no news on in some time. By the looks of it though, ZodTTD will probably release something before this unlad anyways.

    There are of course the usual problems with any project in development such as "duplicate button registers, delay of presses, and crashes when heavy gameplay occurs. "

    Here is said video below for your viewing pleasure. I will try and get a review of this as soon as I can get my hands on it. Stay tuned.



    Here is what the developer has released as a "Trailer"

      I'm calling ********. only because the rom loads too fast. The only way the game would start like that is from a gamesave. Normally it would go through a bootup like a real n64. It loads way too fast... looks like it was made with 3D pinning and a controller layout. As you can see, the person who made this obviously has video editing skills that he used in his trailer. hmm until I see a release I call bs. If the emulator does have gamesave ability, why wouldn't it be ready for a release now? If it is real kudos, but I don't believe it.

      NWorksdev you are the man and I totally believe in you and what your doing! Don't let the critics get you down! Use their banter as motivation to get this out as fast as possible! I would love to beta test your product! Please! I have to get my hands on this ASAP!!

      Does this ONLY work on 3GS? Not on the regular, old, I-was-there-first-generation iPhones?

      That 'fake' video doesn't seem consistent with ignoring the belief the emulator is in the works of this developer. The last part though seemed convincing. Why would it punch before he pressed? Dunno.

      And I haven't received a beta version. I asked for one. You would think if some people got it, someone would have uploaded it somewhere and everyone would have it by now which is also weird.

      kind of hard to believe a 14 year old would understand mips instruction set
      either he's lying about his age or the 3g4 is fake (or not 100% his code).

      Good point. It seems highly unlikely the truth is being told. I won't say it is fake though because I'm hoping for this damn thing, haha.

      Somewhat, but then you remember that a 17-year-old was the first person on the planet to unlock the iPhone.

      Seen too many hoaxes out there to not be skeptical about this. It could be real of course, but it's also easy to imagine that he's just playing back a video file and pressing buttons in time with what's happening on screen. All the more power to him if it's real, but until something is actually released I'm not gonna hold my breath.

      It hasn't been proven fake, actually. Just theorized.

      Why? Just because when you you were 14 you couldn't understand a light switch?

      I am so sick of people like you who think that is fake just because you probably still couldnt work out how to do it.

      A 14 year old can do a lot of things, when i was 15 i wrote a whole operating system with one of my mates, You gonna say thats impossible?

      You people who think this is fake are all losers, this guy put a lot of time and effort into this program and when he releases it you will all look like fools.

      something like [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkB9vQDY3eU&feature=related]YouTube - iPhone GamePad - an iPhone gaming case[/ame] that? seems awsome. that + a n64 emulator or psx even... just great. iphone can finally match up with the new gaming console likes psp etc.
