Last week I also got contacted by the people behind the new gaming console Game Consoles Worldwide Zero, or GCW-Zero for short. They would like me to port my x86 emulator also to their new device, and this is something that I find quite interesting. The device is powered by an Ingenic JZ4770 CPU running at 1GHz, so it is quite a bit more powerful than the 360MHz JZ4740 that is in the DSTwo flash cart for which I developed the DS2x86 version of my emulator. However, both of those processors use the MIPS32 architecture, so it should be relatively easy for me to port my DS2x86 code (which is 95% MIPS32 ASM) over to work on GCW-Zero.
I have already done some preliminary porting tests, and there are some issues that I need to solve to be able to run my emulator under an operating system, but these issues are reasonably similar to what I had to do when porting DSx86 over to rpix86. What this means, though, is that it looks like my finishing my Android port will get pushed back, as I am currently more interested in working on GCW-Zero than on my continuing the ax86 version. But who knows, possibly I can use some new features (that are coded in C language) in both of them!
