So now, you could run Citra, the 3DS emulator, on a 3DS? We are truly gods.

Let me guess, they use bochs like the “hackers“ that made win 95 run on a ps3?
Oh no, it's dosbox. Well, the only accomplishment is they run Retroarch, Windows is just a “rom“ they run.

I figured there was a homebrew of Doom on 3DS. I see Doom as a means test to any form of technological screwing about. I want Doom inside Doom inside windows 95 inside a 3DS emulator on Windows 10 inside OSX via Wine inside a Linux virtual machine.

Well, even ScanDisk loading is long. I would like more to see the performance of MS-DOS games on New Nintendo 3DS... I mean, they had to install MS-DOS in x86 emulator during the installation of Windows 95.

Exactly, no garden walled problem. Open platform. Always best to stick with all emus on Windows running non PC.

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

What was that game in Encarta 96 with the jester in the castle? I loved that. Also, the orbit simulator.

With the huge amount of platforms supported by ScummVM (Wii! Nintendo DS! Pocket PC! Amiga OS! Old Samsung Smart TVs!), I won't be surprised in a slightest when New Nintendo 3DS gets the port.

Windows Phone won't get one in forever, though. :(

Did you just compare the moon landing with Windows 95 on the New 3DS?

The latter one isn't even hard but just something you want in the first place.

I want windows 95 running on an n3ds? And it's not hard? Please show me your accomplishments.

And yes, I did, because its comparable. I also compared it to flying the atlantic, climbing the highest mountain, and rice playing texas. If you dont get it, you never will.
