    A native app sounds wonderful... Not to rain on any parades but using DOSBox, most emulators already work on the Playbook... The interface on yours looks a lot better with the keymapping... Keep up the good work!

    Hi A7omic, do you need a rooted PB, or os 2.0 for this to work?

    Looking at the Street Fighter pics I can infer that the controls must be coming along nicely.

    You cannot play a "fighter"-esque game without tight, responsive controls.

    No, this is just a regular app currently compiled using the 1.x NDK and it runs on 1.x or 2.0.

    Rooting has no impact on normal app development. You can be rooted or not, it makes no difference.

    Additionally I am again using the open source libraries that RIM developed, the same ones used in dosbox, openTTD and Battle for Westnoth.

    Actually the controls need a lot of work, I just quickly through these together.

    In all honesty I hate touch interfaces for games, you lose so much not having that tactile response that you get from a normal controller. Hopefully it will work well with a blutooth keyboard and maybe in the future we will get some controller support through the usb.

    But for now I will do what we can with what I have
