Thanks, I think I will try zsnes. I think it would be a simple matter
to add support to mythgame for zsnes... just replace all the config
options. I might see about doing this myself if I can get it working
happily with my xbox gamepads (a whole separate nightmare!) and at
fullscreen. Should be easy enough from there to add support for other
emulators like gens, visualboyadvance, etc.
