For C64 we really only need a few keys premapped - or the ability to map 1 of about 20 keys to the other 11 buttons on a common 12 button controller.

These would cover a good 90% of the popular games out there:
Space
F1, F3, F5 and F7
Y
N
H
T
0-9
Run/Stop
C=

I worked closely with Robert Broglia on the C64.emu - trying to get all the t's crossed and i's dotted. I think it is the best overall C64 emulator there is.

We would benefit from NTSC/PAL switching, Fast/True drive emulation, Cart support and a quick way to swap joystick ports.

Thanks for RetroX. Get me some C64 and Amiga CD32 and I'm one happy camper. :)

Amstrad CPC 464 - already fully working emulator in retroarch called Caprice, complete with fully functional keyboard. Being able to listen to Tim Follins Agent X II music is a must.

My selection :
GameCube :D
Sega Saturn :)
Amiga CD32

Sorry in advance, but regarding 3DO.... how many "good" games in total ?
too few, I'm afraid..... :evil:

I'm nervous concerning Sega Saturn : it was not emulated very well on pc... now on an android device.... :?
Hardware used : Nvidia Shield TV (2017) 16Go + 1 Hdd 2 To

I voted for Gamecube, zx spectrum is definitely my second choice as that brings many memories back staying up all night playing pyjamarama :-)

Another one for Saturn, though I wouldn't mind Gamecube. Funny thing is when I first got retrox I was downloading a bunch of games I played as a kid or wanted to play and several of them were for saturn. Then I realized there was no emulator :(. I never played GC before but looked up some games and see a few titles I want to try.

I actually pulled my vote for Gamecube. Not because there aren't amazing games on Gamecube, but ...

I've yet to see GREAT GC emulation on Android. There are ALWAYS issues; ranging from slowness to audio issues to graphical breakage. If I can't be assured of GREAT emulation? I'll stream Dolphin from my PC or heck - just break out my modded Gamecube :)

I would MUCH rather see resources and time going to emulation that CAN be "mastered" by Android - like C64, Amiga CD32, Atari ST, etc. I also believe that this mentality would contribute more to a positive impact on RetroX with the public as well. No one likes "half-assed" emulation; even when it isn't the fault of the developer.
