Has anyone figured out how to run Windows games on Pocket PC yet? I think I'm about to get a Dell Axim X5 and I'd love to run some windows games through an emulator or something. The best I can find is SCUMM and a couple of DOS emulators.

Like I said, there are DOS emulators, I've got those. What I really want to run are older 2D games such as Civ II, stuff that doesn't require 3d hardware of any kind. I can't seem to find a Windows emulator I was hoping somebody knew of one that existed or was in the works.

A nano can play those games? I didn't know that.
I really don't know much about Pocket PC 2002/2003 compatibility. Do WIndows-based games and software even run on them? Where is a good place to research this I can't seem to find anything and I really want to know, just ordered my new Axim a few hours ago.

bah, i am sure HL1 and Doom1 would work if an Ipod nano can do it...

Man, Half-Life is a wayyyyy more advanced 3D engine than Doom. I have seen Doom run on a Pocket PC before, but the day I see Half-Life run on one is the day I buy one. :)
