DSMasterPlus, a Sega Master System / Game Gear emulator for the DS has been released. This is the first version of the emulator.
The author notes that the emulator is based upon SMSPlus.
As this is only the first release not everything is emulated correctly. From brief tests there were noticeable slowdowns and the overall brightness was set rather low. On the plus side graphics showed correctly and the emulator supports DLDI and save states.
Lick's iPod inspired media player has been resurrected from the grave and released in a fully usable form. A programmer by the name of Lucas picked up the project and completely re-wrote the application, including adding DLDI support.
This is only an early alpha release so the author warns there may be a few bugs and only basic functionality. At the moment sound quality is no where near the quality of Moonshell so expect to only be using this release for testing purposes.
We've recently had our Acekard+ samples dropped off at our door, so here's a little sneak peak for you all. The Acekard+ was advertised last week as a free upgrade to all previous Acekard owners, as long as you don't mind shipping off your old Acekard to either your supplier or the AK team in China.
What's the difference with the Acekard+? The team advertised that the new version now supports FAT file systems, so you're no longer tied down to using the horrible AKFS (Acekard file system), DLDI support, increased homebrew compatibility, new GUI enhancements, and continued 100% NDS compatibility.
Perhaps, you thought that the free replacement scheme sounds too good to be true? Well, on closer inspection of the Acekard+, we can see that it is exactly the same card/hardware as the original Acekard, just with a new front and back sticker. So, does this mean you can simply use the new Acekard+ firmware on the original Acekard? Unfortunately not; we've already tried it. It seems that the internal firmware of the Acekard+ (note we said firmware not boot loader) is different to that of the original Acekard. Unless the team decide to release a tool to manually upgrade the firmware on your old Acekard, you will still have to send off for a free replacement (where we expect they just flash the card with new firmware, slap 2 new labels on and mail it back).

The CycloWiz installation manual has been released which explains how to enable the ability to update the modchip. A total of nine wires are required to gain full functionality from the CycloWiz.
The manual includes detailed pictures of installation and also reveals that if you want the ability to update your CycloWiz you will need to buy an On/Off Switch sold separately. Under normal use you should have the switch set to off, enabling the switch enters the modchip into programming mode which would allow you to update the chip. This seems like a hassle as you would have to open up the Wii again should you want to update the chip.
Another feature of the CycloWiz is that after completing the full installation you will have the ability to disable the modchip by holding in Reset while powering on the system.
