    i cant wait to mess around with my NesEm now and they have multiplayer support over Bluetooth! i would like to play the original Contra with someone else on a treo 650. that would just be sweet.

    now itll actually be worthwhile with the higher processor speed and of course the high res screen!

    I'm sorry to dampen your excitement (and let me just say, I'm as excited as you are about NesEm), but there's a chance that the serial controller that listens to the buttons and the 5-way may not support multiple button presses. Many PDAs have had this problem in the past, and until we actually get the hardware in hand, there's no way to know. NesEm would still be playable if that should turn out to be true, but many games wouldn't be any fun (imagine playing Super Mario Bros. without being able to hold down B and run). Let's keep our fingers crossed that multiple button presses will be supported in the Treo 650.

    Wha? Multiplayer support over bluetooth? Where did you get that?

    I had Kalemsoft's nesem, and gizmo on my treo 600, and it did supported it.
    So I assume that the treo 650 will also, maby even better than the 600 did.
    But what I truly wanna know is if the treo 650, with its knew processor, can support GBAZ OK.

    well it worked in the treo 600. ive had the emulator for a while just stopped using it cuz of the poor res. back then i had a slow sd card which is where it ran from and the processor speed was slower on the 600. I have emailed Kalemsoft and they have assured that they are definitely planning on fixing any Treo 650 bugs if they arise.

    as for bluetooth...

    support was added last month for bluetooth and upgrades are free

    I'm looking forward to playing some River City Ransom on a 650

    The 650 hardware is really very different from the 600. Because NesEm worked on the 600 is no guarantee that it will on the 650. I'm very hopeful that it will, but many users on this board have set their expectations high for this device. Many PDA manufacturers over the last five years, have shifted serial controllers for the buttons from product revision to revision. Just Google for 'iPaq' and "multiple button". I just want to point out that this is a possibility so that our expectations are kept realistic.

    Ditto to that.

    That could very well be the single greatest piece of software I have ever come across. I was already going to buy the 650 but now I want it even more (don't have any palm phone).

    May be a stupid question but where are the games? Are they included or downloaded somewhere else?

    Edit: Forget that... stupid question

    Nope, the games aren't included with the emulator. You would have to download them (do a google search), unless you have one of those NES ROM readers/burners where you can snap in your cartridge and grab the image off it.

    I am afraid if I ask this question the thread may be booted to another forum but I will ask it anyway: Anyone know of a good emulator for XP?

    dunno about this but try www.emulation.com or www.emulation2000.com.. It really isn't hard to just do a google search for NES emulators though. There are loads...

    As far as win xp compatibility is concerned... I haven't had any problems with win xp yet.

    I agree, it isn't hard to search for them, but I had an emulator f up my computer a couple of years ago so I wanted to get some tips on some that people knew worked.

    I will give the one you sent a shot... thanks

    I'll tell you right now, if the NesEm works on the 650... WOW.

    Excitebike in HiRes on a Treo = ZERO productivity!!!!

    What worries me is if duck hunt, techmo bowl or ice hockey work.

    Are you guys serious. Are you guys telling me that I can play NES games on the Treo 600/650. Wow, I am now absolutely sure that I am getting a Treo650 (My first Treo, and my First Smart Phone.) This is the best news (well to me its news) I've heard in a long time....

    I got NesEm for my 600 but am very dissapointed with the low res screen and how it works there... I'm really looking forward to the High Res of the 650 for that alone!
