Except it still wouldn't read GD-ROMs or homebrew, thus defeating the entire point.

And besides, I can't see how it would ever run full-speed.

even though the Xbox cpu supports SSE, it would run really slowly.

probably not worth the trouble

yea seriously. also, the Xbox's CPU wouldnt be able to do it, since DC games rely mostly on FPU stuff and the x86 in the xbox benchmarks almost identical to dc in that respect.

I might not be very informed on whether or not the Xbox could pull it off, but due to what these people have been saying, I think it's ok Ian. We don't have much to worry about... hopefully. :D

Shocking

Would Xbox on Dreamcast be fine with you?
Aside from the fact that there's no way in hell that could happen? :lol:

I know that was to Ian Micheal, but I would just like to say that there's nothing on Xbox that I'd wanna emulate on DC anyway :P

:guffaw:



Na, seriously:

I see that Chanka for PC maybe will hold up the interest in DC for some time but on xBox? My statement over at DCEmu forums:

That's not possible! xBox runs at 750 MHz and it uses a CISC CPU - it's slow as hell

DC runs at 200 MHz with a SH4 RISC chip - You'll get about 1-3 FPS even if coded in ASM (like Chanka already is, I guess) ...a Dreamcast slideshow :wink:

DC is a little xBox 8-)

...and you'll need someone stupid enough to try it! :yahaha:

It may be possible and playable in a DreamX 1480. A normal XBox would die just trying to load.

And you shouldn't underestimate the XBox power. I wonder if that project that uses the GPU to do math operations might be used in the Xbox...

if your really going to buy a dreamx just for chanka on xbox, then buy a real dc for 25$ (probably cheaper if you look) and then you have no worries about speed, sound, and campatibility....

if you are using this emulator instead of buying a dc..... im sorry..

Loopy is a genius! You can't compare that! The GBA is somewhat downward compatible to the SNES as Genesis-SMS or SNES-NES, Loopy's trick is to take advantage of these features and fake the emulation!

Similar could be for SegaSaturn emulation on DC as it uses SH2 ASM which is practically the same as SH4 that the DC uses... Just all the other million units like 3 VDPs and one 68K (again downward compatible to the SEGA Genesis / MegaDrive) and whatnot makes that almost impossible to do 4 DC.

I would want some one stupid enough to try it.I mean ppl said the psx could'nt be on the dc a few years back and some one pulled it off at even better than the ps2 can play ps1 games.All that is required is to get the emulator optimised for the xbox after it is ported so meh.
