Default Windows 95 on a psp?

Yeah, this guy has no life

What is this?

Yes, it's true. I've managed to run Windows 95 and Linux on the PSP. I've done it by porting the excellent open source x86 emulator Bochs.

Windows 95 actually runs quite well but don't expect it to be a speed demon. It takes about 10 minutes to boot but afterwards it's pretty usable. I was able to do things like: open "My computer" and browse the virtual hard drive, complete a whole game of Minesweeper and run various other applications. Now you too can get your Minesweeper fix on the go :)

I've also tested DLX Linux which comes pre-packaged with Bochs and it works just fine. However, I couldn't do much with it because there's no keyboard support. If you want to do your word processing on it then wait until keyboard support is implemented (though I doubt it will be any fun using the joystick).

In windows, mouse handling is extremely difficult. I suspect it has something to do with the "boost" feature windows has. Once you get the mouse moving it will keep moving in that direction even when you're trying to move to a different direction. The solution is to counter the movement by moving to the opposite direction. It's sort of like trying to push the mouse the other way in order to stop it.

I highly doubt SRB2 would run.

Yes, it should run.

Just use -nosound -nomusic -nomouse -nodinput -win and you should be fine.

If you install DirectX on the PSP as well, you don't need all the above junk.

Doesn't the PSP have a 533Mhz proccessor in it? If so it should run fine and playble, i've ran it on a 435Mhz computer before, but then it all comes down to the RAM, SRB2 is a monster.

Don't forget, Win95 is running inside of an x86 emulator on the PSP.

SRB2 works on Windows 95(A) with Direct X 7.0,IMHO.

Sweetness, it works. It's a bit choppy, but luckily, nowehere near as flesh-rippingly bad as the DC port.

I'd seriously consider putting Wadauthor on my friend's PSP if it wasn't for the fact that the first post says that it's hard to control the mouse..

You could always revamp everything to be much more watered down to the point where it would run on a DS, like simplify the physics engine, remove music and sounds, decrease texture quality, ect...

If DOOM runs on a GBA, a watered-down SRB2 would run on a DS. Think about it.
