These are my results on how emulators work for me on PocketCHIP.
Higan: run “sudo apt-get install higan” (without quotes)
I use Mednafen for everything else, but downloaded simply for the SNES emulator. It works, the higan-balanced version runs at around 15 FPS, and the higan-performance runs in between 15-20 FPS. So for now it’s slow. (Tested with EarthBound)
NES: A Whopping 5 FPS (on higan-balanced)
higan-performance: FPS UP!.. by 1
Mednafen: sudo apt-get install mednafen
Surprisingly GBA works well. However SNES ends with a SIGABRT message (if it’s fixed I’ll post the results [tested with Mother 3)
NES works flawlessly on mednafen. (Mother 1)
By these results, GB and GBC should work well on mednafen and not higan.
Comment with your results!
(and yes, I am a mother fan)
