RPG, Pinball, adventure. Those were the first words I had read when I was taking a first look at Rollers of the Realm, and I immediately had to know more about the game. Find out what my impressions...
Just a reminder for those who didn't read last week's news on GBAtemp: the GBAtemp Quiz will be closed tomorrow around midnight GMT.
If you haven't submitted your answers yet, remember to do so tomorrow if you want to get a chance to win one of the two CycloDS Evolution that we're offering as prizes.
The G6 Team have released version 2.2B of their G6 DS Real loader. The biggest enhancement in this version is the addition of DLDI auto-patching. To use the auto-patching feature, you need to launch homebrew from the "My Card" file browsing menu. DLDI auto-patching seems to be the only major addition as there is no change log for this version.
DS-Xtreme owners will be happy to learn that some smart members here at GBAtemp have found a way to play Zelda Phantom Hourglass on their DS-Xtreme. Fortunately, this trick doesn't even involve an unofficial firmware upgrade or downgrade which would void your warranty, as recently read on the DS-Xtreme forums.
This trick was discovered a few days ago and works with several games (Sim City, Zelda, ...) so you might aswell try it out if you own a DS-Xtreme!
Just in case you've been living under a rock for the last few months, here's a quick reminder that Nintendo's "down-sized" E3 press conference is being held today (11th July). The conference is going to be streamed live via various websites, see below for more details.
Team Xecuter have unveiled the final design for their new open source Wii modchip, the Xecuter WiiP v2. As you can see, it's a 5-point "quick solder" board and the PIC is placed on an external PCB mounted out side the console above the USB ports that connects to the main board via a flat ribbon cable. The PIC can apparently be programmed either via USB, LPT or DVD.
Lordus has released a new Genesis/Mega Drive emulator for the Nintendo DS. Apparently compatibility and speed in this version is very impressive, but just like PicoDrive DS, there is no sound emulation yet.
