Request Android x86 port

Post by ruthan » Sat 28 Apr, 2018 12:40 am

Hello,
pleas consider make and Android x86 port of this emulator, there is Androidx86 so no any instruction translation is needed and there have same raw power as normal PC. On Android x86 is Windows 3xx/9x problem, because there is Bochs port from man who is porting everything but not really care about Android adjustments and there is possibility to run bochs image inside Dosbox - limited 2GB hdd size and other issues.

You probably dont know what Android x86 is running on PC, so raw power is exactly the same.

There are some x86 convertibles like my Toshiba Z20, there are notebooks.. on desktop PC, well i actually make more sense that Linux, MacOS,BSD etc.., because how much people are already have Android phone => are used on Android GUI => more than billion? I make sense have 1 OS on all devices only with other dekstop laucher for phone and desktop (more icons, taskbar)..

Some apps are more user friendly on pc, licence is free, boot is much faster and nice dual boot - safe OS, configuration is much simpler and for me personally some emulators are better not on PC - from configuration point of view.. It make sense that is why is there Android x86 project, Intel also invested into it, so its have perspective..

Now Android is supporting multiple windows, there is controllers support, touch to physical mapping, touchscreen support,Teamviewer and VNC remote access are working, ntfs partition mount is working, samba via Total COmmander is working, Steam streaming is working on vanilla ARM Android via Moonlight (on the way on x86 - some codecs problem), Wine is there only few big things are missing.. like 1) good Windows emulation (Vmware, Virtualbox) - but Bochs is there, QEMU is there as Limbo emulator (Win98 and WinXp a bit working) and its getting better faster that any other OS... and 2) multiple displays support.

Community is great, what why lots of others emulator has Android ports.

I thing that its more and more clear every day that Android is what will replace the Windows era.
