How to play Turrican games on P800?

Finally, its possible! I have a Sony Ericsson P800, and while testing a emulator called PicoDrive, SMSPLUS etc. You can now play Turrican games on your P800.

Heres a step-by-step manual how to get the MegaDrive "Turrican"
running under P800 cellphone. Dead Simple!

-You need a P800 cellphone, with a internet connection or vice versa.

-By using P800 with internet, you can download the files very easily. P800 support .sis files, the main applications files.

-Get yourself the megadrive "Turrican" rom. (Not MegaTurrican, it wont work)

-Now download the emulator from here:

-Its a sis file, just download it to your P800 and follow the instructions. The emulator is an early beta release, so expect some bugs, and sound does not support yet but it supports zip files.

-Load the emulator, and load the rom. Now youre playing a real Turrican game on your phone. Enjoy.

There are some other emulators, like SMSPLUS, which you can play GGT on P800 and ATARI ST. However, I tested the frodo64, and non of Turrican game works!

Well, Frodo isn't really the "reference" C64 emulator.
Try "VICE" oder "C64S". (Note: C64S is commercial.)

Question: The emulator's name is SMSPLUS?

Well - SMS is in my opionion the abbreviation for
"Sega Master System" - the previous sega system before the
Sega Mega Drive (aka "Genesis" in some countries).
(And then one would need the Master System ROM - if any
available, don't know... - to run the game.)

Either I didn't really unterstand you or I messed up some
things. (Or YOU messed up some things.) Possibly I'm simply
stupid at all.

I don't know, but there probably is nothing else but Frodo for Handys.
SMSplus is indeed a Sega Master System emulator. PicoDrive is the MegaDrive-emu.

Well, SMSplus can run Game Gear roms too, so D´UH!

I think Imperial was confused, cause you wrote SMSPLUS just before your Mega Drive-manual.

Yes, that's exactly what I was. Confused. Caused by limited knowledge of the facts.
Thanks for explaining.

Btw: Vice is a Multisystem C64 Emulator - compiled for many OS. (DOS, Windows,
Linux, BeOS, etc...)
Probably - if you write to the developers - they provide a mobile phone version,
too. (Or anyone talented mobile phone coder asks for joining their huge team -
and ports Vice for mobiles.)

Btw: I've heard many people complaining about the Frodo C64 emulator, stating
it's less compatible than others are. And it seems to be not that stable on
some OS, too.

Sorry if I broke some nerves.
