DSonPSP Desmume core

A few years ago, DSonPSP was created as a proof of concept revolving around the Desmume core at the time, from 2006/07. Recently, a group of programmers - myself included - have taken an interest in DSonPSP again. We think that the PSP is capable of emulating, say, 2D DS games quite well, and we're setting out to update the code.

However, we've run into a pretty big difficulty. DSonPSP's iteration of Desmume is so old that it's written in C, whereas Desmume was rewritten years ago in C++. Additionally, the PSP is MIPS based, so the x86 dynarec is a no-go as well for the time being. So on behalf of us I'd like to reach out to the programmers here to see if they could offer us any assistance in backporting Desmume code to the PSP. Is anyone interested or willing to give us help or info? Thanks in advance.

(Edit: here is the DSonPSP source as we're updating it: https://github.com/TheMrIron2/DSonPSP)

Re: DSonPSP Desmume core

You're wasting your time. libretro desmume already works on PSP, I assume. Not very well, I suspect. Desmume has grown more bloated over the years.  You should be forking the libretro core and doing what you can to make that work better.

We've only just this month had someone show up who wants to make an ARM jit, and that's 100000000000000000000000 times more useful than a MIPS, so judge for yourself the interest level in a mips target.

Re: DSonPSP Desmume core

I thought a few years ago Desmume was rewritten with the intent of that? I don't think any retroarch cores on PSP are even half as performant as their standalone PSP counterparts, but that's to be expected I suppose. Thanks for responding anyway.
