Gauntlet Video Game?

Anyone know where I can get a copy of it? It's the old Atari Arcade Game, I remember playing it on my ancient Sega System and was wondering if there is a place I could get a copy along with an emulator.

You can play it using mame. I have the rom for it if you can't find it. I have almost 500 of the old school games.

I've also got a ton of old NES/SNES roms ... dunno if I've got Gauntlet, but I'm pretty sure I do. RockNES, or NESticle will do ya good on the NES side, and SNES9x, or ZSNES (recommended) will do ya good for SNES roms.

And mame can be found, I think at www.mame.org ... if not, do a search for mame, or m.a.m.e. and ya should find it pretty quick.

OK, I downloaded MAME last night but haven't installed it. Quick question, does it support multiplayer games where two people can play at the same time?

Oh man, you got me looking...

Found Zaxxon but couldn't find Wizards of Wor. Now WoW is something I would definately buy, I have tried some of the emulators on computer but they are not even nearly the same thing.

yes.. but you are limited to the keys on your keyboard. You can get controllers to work.. but it is a pita.. you have to do it everytime you start the rom.

Ya but it's probably the more recent version which is different. I like the classic one.

Depends. I haven't used mame, so I'm not familiar with it's controller setup. But I know with emulators like RockNES/Nesticle, SNES9x, and ZSNES, they all hold the controller configurations, so you don't have to reconfigure them each time. I would think that mame would do the same, especially newer versions.

I was just wondering if there were emulators for the Axim I needs to play me some old school goodness. Too bad there's not enough buttons for anything more than an NES or Master System emulator Would be sweet to play some SNES games. Unless ... hmmm. Unless they do button combos. Like the two left buttons at once = the L button on the SNES controller, and the two right buttons at once = the R button. Or something like that.


Hmmmmm.


Ok, gonna go find out

Hrm. Seems that all the emulators out there are compiled for ARM, MIPS, or SH3 processors. The Axim and most new handhelds are using the XScale processor. Supposedly getting the ARM versions work ... but people are having performance problems with 'em

Fortunately, they provide source code for most of them ... but where can I get a compiler that will run on my Axim?

Nah ... but I can't imagine there's not one out there somewhere I'm just gonna grab the ARM versions, as the XScale processor is based off the StrongARM, and from what I've been reading, they work, though for example, the SNES emulators are dog slow (like 1 - 5fps ) Figure that might work ok for RPGs or something, until someone gets some re-compiled for XScale processors.

I'm gonna pick up a memory card (whichever's cheaper of the two) this weekend (Best Buy's got a 10% off deal going), so I can load roms and emulators on it, and save the onboard memory for processing ... some people have had some noticable improvements in performance on the SNES emulators that way. The NES / 8Bit generation consoles, and earlier all seem to work peachy. It's the 16bit and up that are sluggish (though work ok on StrongARM equipped PDA's).

There's even a GBA emulator in production that supposedly works, but is buggy. Funny thing though ... the GBA uses a StrongARM processor ... one would think the cpu translation would be minimal, if at all, to get it to run on either StrongARM or XScale equipped PDA's.

Another thing I gotta pick up this weekend at Best Buy is the Game Boy Player ... hoping they have some in stock, since it just came out on Monday, and I've not seen any places taking any more preorders after June 1st, because they'd already gone through all their pre-orders
