I must admit I haven’t tested this release yet, how good is it? The guys behind Retroarch are planning to support things such as ScummVM and CaveStory in the future, how cool is that?

    Don’t forget that I/we have a Xbox 360, Wii and Xbox 1 port of RetroArch to go along with it too.

    I’ve been playing around with the idea of doing a PSP port eventually – I’ll have to see how/if that pans out.

    Cave Story/NXEngine runs on PC – the problem porting it to the big-endian consoles is down to the little endian nature of the data files – this will require a lot of tracking down and I could really appreciate a keen and able guy to help along with the process as it’s time consuming.

    NXEngine/Cave Story technically runs right now on Wii/PS3, but the game logic is totally broken due to endianness issues – enemies don’t move, destroyable star tiles don’t get destroyed, and so on.
