    So we've dissected the 650 on virtually every other topic, how about gaming? I'm not talking about the simpler puzzle and card games like Bejeweled and Sol Free, but more involved games like:

    - Hellfire: Apache vs. Hind
    - MicroQuad
    - Warfare Incorporated
    - GTS Racing Challenge
    - Basically anything featured here
    (As examples. Don't limit yourself to these particular games.)

    We know NesEm works and that alone makes it great, but how about other emulators like PalmApple?

    Is the screen good or too small? Are the controls good or too cramped? Does it kill your battery life unreasonably? What specifically have you played?

    I know this isn't what you buy a 650 for, but since you already have it...

    whoa that sucks... !

    But I can't wait to get the Treo 650 so I can try these on the high-res screen.

    I think I can rule out the screen being too small. I worked out this comparison just out of curiosity.

    The web site says a GBA SP has a 2.9" diagonal screen. After a little math and assuming it's 3:4, that works out to a 1.74"x2.32" screen. If I measure the screen on the "actual size" picture on the brochure I got from the roadshow, it's 1.75"x1.75". So the screen is the same phyiscal size as a GBA, it's just limited to a box instead of 3:4. It'll be fine. (Actually it will be better since it's 320x320x64k instead of 240x160x32k. Of course, it's a hell of a lot more expensive )

    Can you play multi-player games thru bluetooth or internet. I dont like the IR game play where you have to stand in front of the other person.

    Here is a very nice comprehensive list of available emus for PalmOS:

    http://www.pdarcade.com/modules.php?...icle&artid=106

    Also, PDArcade is a great overall site for multiplatform pda gaming and they have some very nice reviews of gmaes. Their "Top games of the year" article is also very informative about the best games available...

    In addition, Palmemu.com is another great site devoted to palm os emus...

    You can play warfare over the internet, but it lags too much. I played one 40 minute game with another member. I lagged about every 5-10 seconds though. I wish it could be optimized better because Starcraft BW didnít lag on 56k modem. This isn't starcraft, but the treo has a faster connection that 56k. I haven't tried Bluetooth, but it should work fine. There could possibly be a way to link Bluetooth to your pc and go thru high speed so there isnít any lag.

    The NesEm supports multiplayer Bluetooth. Iím sure there are other Bluetooth compatible games, but I only have NesEm and the warfare demo.

    Indeed. Software always takes longer than you expect, even if you pad your estimates to try to take that into account.

    I poked through their message board and got this:

    Arvale is here. (I actually thought it was Arbale due to the font.) Flux Challenge still looks more interesting to me. I like RPGs, but I'd rather have pick up and go games for my Palm.

    If you <clears throat> own the original NES game you can find tons of roms through Acquisition on a Mac(Awesome app), or one of thoses peer to peer apps on PC like Limewire(not really sure which one is the best on PC)...

    I've played GTS racing, and it runs great... have to have that game since I have a 1996 Viper GTS...

    although once you have NesEM, you'll never look back....

    It looks like there is finally a program that supports wireless internet TCP/IP chess on the Treo 600.

    http://chesseverywhere.com/palm/palm_install.html

    I'm going to try it out.

    Please let me know if you happen to know of others.

    EDIT: My goodness, it worked. Hooray!
