No, but I did find a MAME port for 5800 that may work on the N97.

Just added it to my site - but I've not tested it yet as I need to dig out my ROMS.

VBAGX works fine on the N97 - except you will need to redefine the keys so that it uses something else other than the right soft key as the "exit" button. works beautifully in full screen and pretty cool playing GBA stuff on it.

so i imagine this would not work on a 5800 as it doesnt have any physical keys to map to? that would be great if there' s a work around, OTHER than using a bluetooth keyboard!

"Iím planning to add touch support for phones with capacitive touch (Samsungís i8910). Hopefully there will be more 5th edition phones with capacitive touch in the future.."


might work on 5800. Guess the problem will be the CPU on 5800.

I got Picodrive working fine on my N97.

vBagX is problematic - apparently you can hold the menu key while in-game and press the 'cancel' softkey to get the vBag menu up, to redefine the keys. This hasn't worked for me though, it just locks up and eats all the RAM, even after it's closed.

I also tried AntSNES, which didn't work properly either.

Install VBAG on your N97

Attach your N97 in Mass Storage mode and do a search on where you installed VBAG for a file called VBAG.cfg (its in the Private\20010F59 folder or somewhere)

replace this file with the attached.

This basically is the direction pad for normal direction, the select button as select, start = q, select = w, L button = I, R button = O, A button = K, B Button = L and finally ENTER is the equivalent of the right soft key (go back in the menus). Also, it runs the game in full screen.

Does the GBA run in full speed with sound for those who have tried it?

There is no vbag.cfg file on my phone. Can you tell me exactly where it should go? Thanks.

Edit: I couldn't get vbag to recognise the cfg file. But I did manage to get the menu to show by going to task manager during a game, then returning to vbag. Eventually the menu loaded and I could assign new keys.

Anyone know if there's an N64 emulator around for S60?

No there isnt. Besides if there is, the N97 (without 3D Hardware) wouldnt be able to render it well anyway as most N64 emulators are all OpenGL based (but I'd think it will work well on N95 however!)

Regarding the VBAG config - sounded like you had it running and wasnt closed off properly in the background already if you needed Task Manager to switch to it. Shouldnt need to do that normally. The config file should just go into that folder under the private folder and should be cool from there.
