    Sort of, ish. There's a DeSmuMe port for libretro, which is unrelated to this project. I don't have any inside information, but baseless speculation would suggest the Wii won't be a prime target, simply because it's unlikely that it would run a majority of games at playable speeds without becoming a massive undertaking. Stranger things have happened, though.

    40-50% faster is nice.

    Two words: Paired. Single.
    That's right. I got tired of waiting. I created paired-single versions of ALL of
    the matrix functions. On average they run about 40-50% faster. This has been in
    the works for a long time. There isn't any noticeable speed up that I could
    find, but it's there, and a preview of things to come

    I'm trying to compile this myself (with some minor modifications) but it's saying I'm missing zlib.h when it gets to NDSSystem.cpp

    I already added the libs from the GoogleCode downloads. What am I missing?

    Anyway, maybe someone else can compile this before I can figure it out.

    Here's the modified main.cpp
    http://www.mediafire.com/view/?3w48xyu6armtjob

    since I can't compile it it's obviously not tested but this should leave it with all it's normal features PLUS being able to be used as a WiiFlow plugin.

    Okay, I got closer to compiling this time ... but now it's looking for some files from Dop-Mii and I can't get it to compile either :( (both seem to want libraries and apps installed that I don't have ... or they want me to be using Linux or something.)

    ANYWAY
    In the process I found a little bug in the main.cpp file I had posted so I updated the link :
    http://www.mediafire.com/view/?3w48xyu6armtjob

    If anyone actually CAN get this to compile (if you can get the normal version to compile you SHOULD be able to get this one working, too), PLZ share the DOL file. It would be really cool to have it available.

    EDIT : It goes in the /source/src folder replacing the existing one.

    Okay, I finally found the DOP-Mii library (right on googlecode. Can't believe I didn't see it before. I'm so blind.)
    Now if only my kids hadn't cracked my netbook's screen this weekend ... :(

    Anyway, I'll get this eventually (unless someone else beats me to it.)

    Okay, I got the OFFICIAL, precompiled Wii zlib library now, too (google is my friend ... when I use it right.) I can't wait to get home and try this out now (even if I do have to remote desktop in to do it)

    Man, I have so little time IRL lately

    Anyway, compiled now. Just haven't been able to TEST the thing. Will post when I do.

    Awesome, I'm excited to see what this thing runs like now. I know it will be far from perfect, but maybe some games will be very playable. I'd love to get Pokemon black and white and their sequels working on my Wii.

    It is my most anticipated project! Unfortunately,2d games run at around 60% speed and the 3D games ( the majority crashes,I am talking about some very simple 3D games ) run at 20% at best.

    Also this project screams for a proper GUI and there are almost no option settings at all.

    I pray everyday that some people will devote themselves to actually make DeSmuME Wii a decent emulator with a proper GUI,options and speed...

    P.S OK,I know that stating the truth,it may seems that I am trolling but I would like to express my gratitude to all the people (especially dancinninjac) for the realization of a DS emu for Wii! :grog:

    Okay, for anyone that's interested, here it is, the DeSmuMe WiiFlow plugin:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?nqskk7l1dkzajj3

    It's basically the same as r252 linked by ECSS above with the added ability to use it as a WiiFlow plugin. If you rename it boot.dol and run it with the HBC it will run exactly the same. The only difference is that you can now use it to play NDS games in WiiFlow. If any of the devs see this and feel it's worthy of being committed, be my guest. The only added feature is optionally auto-booting when the full path of the NDS file is passed as an argument.

    EDIT : oh, and the plugin assumes it's to run the hardware rendering instead of software. Anyone feel free to complain if that causes problems.

    I am wondering why noone decided to help dancininja with this project.There are in the Wii homebrew community excellent programmers who have contributed marvelous things in the scene.
    It is almost that only one person on earh (dancininja) actually cares for this...:sad:
