Roofus (porting/coding request)

Post by Calavera » Sat Jun 23, 2018 6:46 pm

Roofus being the big player in the Dreamcast emulation scene that you are I was wondering if you can fulfill a request for me. Can you port PCSX2 to the Nintendo Wii? If that is too much of an undertaking then could you possibly just code a PS2 emulator for the Wii? I'd like to have it today but could wait an entire week if need be. The Dreamcast and PS2 were comparable in power with the DC winning some ram busses but the PS2 winning some DVDs so I know a PS2 on the Dreamcast would be slow. That is why I'm not asking you to port code to the DC but giving you the awesome power of the Wii. PS2 came out in 2000 while Wii came out in 2006. There was a lot of progression graphically and computing wise in that time so the Wii has more than enough extra power to play PS2.

I want Sitting Ducks on my Wii

Some little kid wants to play it, lets call him bubster. I have the game for PS2,Xbox and Windows but bubby prefers the motion controls of the Wii plus I don't feel like hooking the PS2 up and my Xbox is mainly a retro machine.

So code me a PS2 emulator or I just thunk of this you could maybe just port the game so you don't have to emulate the entire system but just one game. It would be ok even if you ported the Xbox,PS2 or Winders version. As long as it on Wii and use Nunchucks and some wagglin' he be happy and so will I. It would be a fun activity for him after he gets he Wetzel Pretzel from shopping centre.

He also like lighting Mcqween from that movie cars so when you code maybe code in that car as a driveable cpu and put Wall-E in there too because he likes Dick Van Dyke VHS tapes, Wall-E likes'em not bubbie, but bub likes Wall-E. Flushed Away is also a movie but will smith was a fish in shark tale so in the ponds of the game put him and jazz jeff under the water.

Also add in baseball game where you swang the remote as a duck. Make the ducks house contain a dreamcast with a bleemcast that you can play motor toon grand prix on in the game. If you could do something with a Sega Saturn 32X CD computer that would be nice too

He has Rio on Blu-ray so no worries about that, but I snort pills off the cover but it is ok cause it is still sealed I only snort off the cardboard sleeve what covers the case.

I thank ya in advance for this, bubbie will enjoy playing his sit down ducks on the wii and I'll play Segagaga on the Dreamcast using google translate instant camera translation. I heard you make some Sega stuff in that game and I'm gonna make a Dreamcast that can play Saturns and stick a 256X on it so it can also playXbox 360 games then maybe Sega will make new consoles.

We have good stereo reciever, speakers and sub woofer so we can blast bass from sitting ducks or a radiant silvergun. Sometimes we hook PS1 to betamax to record footage and sometime we vice versa and hook the beta into the PS1 and feed footage directly into its SH1 processors and it converts the video to polygons, and the brave little toaster ends up being comparable to Shenmue saturn version.

I wrote a PS2 emulator this morning for you. It's technically for the Switch but it should run on the Wii with some frameskip. Let me know if it works OK.

Do you seriously code? Wanna make me what I think should be a super simple Android app that I’m having trouble finding on the Play store?

X-stream radio!!!

And he’s too busy coding us all sorts of wacky emulators!

After he’s finished cals thing I’ve commissioned him to port a series of modern games to the original gameboy.
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

Any progress? It has been almost 3 weeks, seems like you should be done or at the very least have some progress to show!
