Hi to all,
I love emulation of ancient home computers and so i found mess a dream.
Actually i use mess on my pc. So why not use mess inside my cell phone? This is the reason for my question.
What type of difficult should i meet trying to compile mess under symbian os.
I think gcc is a avaiable for compile under symbian os.
Could someone respond to my doubt.

...ps. sorry for my bad english,
Luca

Is SDL available for Symbian? If so, a port could be relatively easy, though most likely way too slow to be usable.

The SDL homepage indicates that there's code in the tree for Symbian but it's not actively maintained. I'd have to think keyboard input would be a fairly major problem MESS-wise as well :-)

Some years ago MAME was much smaller and much faster on CPUs under 1 GHz. None of that is true anymore smile

I'd prefer it if people started using mobile phones as mobile phones. Nothing annoys me more when some moron on a train decides to crank up rap or techno so the whole carriage can hear. Same goes with headphones, but to a lesser extend I find.

That said, I'd probably find it amusing to hear someone playing the old PC Digger (the Mr. Do! type game) on their phone! (starts playing Popcorn in head...)
