ZodTTD Preps 1.1.3 Updates, Taunts Us With snes4iphone

Posted by Eric March on February 1, 2008

It’s-a soon!For those of you who have been wondering why there have been no releases forthcoming from yon Zod way, this would seem to be the answer: He has been busy adding compatibility for firmware 1.1.3 to all of his apps.

Very soon ZodTTD.com applications such as snes4iphone, gpSPhone, OpenTTD.app, and psx4iphone will be receiving updates to fully support firmware 1.1.3 change to using the ‘mobile’ user instead of ‘root’. There is however a quick fix for those who want these and other applications to work with 1.1.3. You must chmod (set permissions) to 777 to the /var/root/Library/Preferences/ directory and also chmod 777 the directories used for external files such as ROMs, usually somewhere within /var/root/Media/.

More news to come shortly. Thanks for the continued support everyone!

“Very soon” is now the current estimate. Be patient — this ain’t Duke Nukem Forever, and he didn’t say When It’s Done™ so we’re safe.

Zod Strikes Back

Posted by Eric March on January 29, 2008

It’s-a me!ZodTTD doesn’t sleep. Ever. I know this because no human being could possibly do as much as he does in the span of time he does it and still manage to saw a few logs. You already know his work so far: gpSPhone, psx4iphone and OpenTTD are his current projects. You may also be aware that he presently has a Super Nintendo emulator, snes4iPhone, that is currently touring the beta circuit. Well, you’d better get your fill of ROMs and get ready for a barrage, because Zod has some big plans, and he intends to hatch them within the next few days. In his own words:

snes4iphone is being worked on more as we speak. Performance will increase, the tricky part will be to maintain or improve compatibility. In v0.4.1 the addition of landscape mode is included and the GUI has been replaced with a more familiar look.

The ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) for the public version of snes4iphone is about a week or less.

Though remember there will be constant beta tests to be had for registered ZodTTD.com forum members who donate. Especially with some great software lined up. ZodTTD.com Beta Testers Club members get to see releases before being made public. So there’s always lots to enjoy.

[GAMING] Emulators (GBA, NES & PSX) available for use on iPod Touch/iPhone

Posted by Jody Mitoma on January 14, 2008

iPod Touch NES EmulatorI know this may be old news to some of you, and I am sorry to have to do this, however, this is actually a pretty big deal, and well, being a new blog and all, I haven’t yet had the chance to talk about it myself.

If you know everything you need to know about the emulators and roms available on the iPod Touch/iPhone, please, do feel free to skip this post completely, as you will most likely learn nothing new.

..

Emulators have been available for the iPod Touch/iPhone for a few months now, with the most recent being the release of the psx4iphone(PS1) emulator. Don’t let the name fool you – this emulator works on the iPod Touch as well, as do all the emulators listed below.

Lets begin with the NES emulator (a.k.a. iPhone NES):

Now lets move on to the GBA emulator (a.k.a. GpSPhone):

Last but not least, the PS1 emulator (a.k.a. PSX4iPhone):

Note: Most roms for the psx4iphone emulator run at half speed, if not, slower. Personally, I find this emulator quite useless for iPod Touch/iPhone users. If you want to play PS1 emulators, buy yourself a Sony PSP! Reasons for this are because the PSP actually has an embeded graphics processor, whereas the iPod Touch/iPhones do not.
