NES Emulation on a Rasp Pico - Castlevania Demo
Ropgar last edited by mitu
I've put together code for a NES emulator for Raspberry Pi Pico as well. In my project it can run several ROMs using Mappers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7 (90% of the games).
It can do 60 frames per second on VGA and emulates APU and PPP perfectly well. It uses a PS/2 Keyboard as controller (I have no NES controller here with me). Sound is very impressive and there no glitches on video and backgound game music.
@ropgar Very Cool. What kind of UI can it run? Assuming ES is out of the question.

@cnoto, It's still an experimental project. So far there is no UI.
It has 10 games preloaded on its flash.
Pressing <CAPS LOCK> on the keyboard will switch among these games.
Using cursor arrow keys, <CTRL> and <ALT> works as a game controller.
Enter and TAB are Start/Select.
The emulator working with preloaded games can be seen at:
@ropgar This is awesome! Well done. This would be a cool project to imbed within a nes controller with a small battery. I cant imagine the pico needs much power.
@ropgar id be happy to test with a usb nes controller if that would be helpful.
