CoolNDS runs quite well on Fire TV,especially when JIT Block Size is set to 100.
No wonder it works so well,since the same dev of CoolN64 made it.

Waiting for the hope that Dynarec becomes fully functional in a free DS emulator.

PPSSPP works perfectly as far as I can tell on the FireTV. Beats waiting for the Vita TV when they ever comes out in the United States.

I'm using a wired XBOX 360 controller to play Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together and various Japanese PSP titles.

Quick Question...I am not rooted and was curious if I would be able to install epsxe?
The reason I ask is because I am able to sideload free apps from the playstore, but when I tried a paid version I got an error message(INSTALL_FAILED_MISSING_SHARED_LIBRARY). Not sure if its related not having google play services or just those particular apks.
If I do not need root, then I will buy it and sideload, but wanted to make sure before i spend 4$ on it.

EDIT: I was able to sideload a paid app that I had, so I think I'm good with epsxe. It must be related to google play services.

I had an app I paid for that worked for a little while and then it called home to verify that it was paid for, since google play wasn't on it wouldn't run anymore until I had Play running on the device. I don't remember which emulator it was though

I've sideloaded MAME4droid and works really great with a Wireless Xbox controller. However I could not make the FireTV remote to select elements on the User Interface. In other words, if I don't have the Xbox controller, I can't play, because I can't select anything. I even tried a keyboard and mouse, and a Playstation joystick + USB adapter, and had the same luck with those. The UI_SELECT mapping would go to the Game Controller only button. I tried to modify the configuration files manually, but no luck either. What bugs me is that I don't always have the Xbox controller. I have 2 PS controllers, and a keyboard.

Did anyone experience this?? Any workaround?
