Hi there, I was wondering if you guys had any interest in Porting Reicast to the WiiU?
The WiiU is an awesome little Console and is really easy to setup Homebrew. :) It's starting to get a few Emulators ported over now (mainly Retroarch Cores) But hasn't got a major system like the Dreamcast yet. I'm hoping you would think of doing a port?

Thanks :)

WiiU would require big endian support, a video backend for GX2 and a JIT backend for PowerPC. All 3 of them are substantial work. nullDC/reicast had big endian support in the past, and could be plausibly backported, assuming there's time and devs to work on it.


Speed wise, WiiU is close to A15 in perf, so it /could/ play at least some games. Depends on how the other factors affect perf.

Thanks for the reply. It's good to know it could be be possible to port DC to the WiiU. Just need someone to step up and have a bash at doing it. :)
