Devesine's Emscripten attempt

Shouldn't prevent anyone else from doing so as well, but I'm going to give the whole "whang it into Emscripten and see what explodes" thing a shot over the next few days. Devesine 15:39, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

interesting idea

I really like the idea. I was suprised for example to find out that javascript is fast enough to run an x86 emulator at decent speed. Then however, that emulator takes some shortcuts that MAME/MESS doesn't (or rather doesn't want to) take. I'd really like to see how e.g. the discrete sound system and the dynarec cores will work once converted. I guess they'll be too slow for anything useful for at least 3 or 4 CPU generations, but hey, I was thinking that of x86 emulation too until some months ago, so I'm actually silently hoping to be positively surprised here ;-) --Darkstar 19:13, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
