    I decided to make a complete list of emmulators on DS with a link to their FileTrip download page, the author's site links and a few comments. If you like it, I will continue in this way. (I need your comments to update it.)

    There are THREE stickies which all have the same info on emulators.
    There was a VERY similar (and more complete) topic just like this (which is gone now).
    http://gbatemp.net/t228898-list-of-emulato...ds-updated-2010
    http://gbatemp.net/t29964-list-of-ds-emulators
    http://gbatemp.net/t31650-list-of-emulator...t-run-on-the-ds

    There are three Moonshell stickies:
    http://gbatemp.net/t149734-commercial-rom-...-2-ysmenu-guide
    http://gbatemp.net/t163493-moonshell-2-faq-guide-and-index
    http://gbatemp.net/t35547-videos-on-moonsh...-batchdpg-guide
    Admittedly, each covers one area... but they could(should) be merged into sections of one guide, like tk_saturn's AK guide.

    FIVE(!) Homebrew topics:
    http://gbatemp.net/t70468-homebrew-discussion-thread
    http://gbatemp.net/t154871-homebrew-starters-pack
    http://gbatemp.net/t82722-homebrew-essentials
    http://gbatemp.net/t105578-popular-homebrew-games
    http://gbatemp.net/t70463-top-30-ds-homebr...s-of-jan-2-2008


    That's a total of 12 stickies out of the 25 topics shown per page. Just a hair under 50%.
    They could all be condensed into three topics

    Among the links you give, there are only two similar list. A very old list and the list of Overlord Nadrian which does not want to put all emulators. Show a little patience!

    is this just a more organized version of an already stickied topic?

    http://gbatemp.net/t228898-list-of-emulato...ds-updated-2010

    if you are collecting different data why not contact the author of the stickied topic and start a joint project? add to the list what is missing and organize it better. i'm sure something like this could be accomplished for the good of gbatemp.

    to be honest i think this project should be moved to the gbatemp wiki. i would even be willing to add to the wiki if one existed, as i am pretty much the only person who posts nds homebrew news for gbatemp.

    arcade:
    might want to add AemioDA by alekmaul, and GreenBeret by FluBBa

    nesds:
    your link is incorrect, you are pointing to neods.

    nesds has had some unofficial updates which should be hosted as well as the original project.
    last code by loopy, updated after emu_kidd fixed some stuff: http://filetrip.net/f796-nesDS-(7312007).html
    an update to loopy's code that added some fixed support by emu_kidd: http://filetrip.net/f4232-NesDS-WIP-v1-7222006.html
    unofficial update which added new mapper support: http://filetrip.net/f8405-nesDS-102309.html (check pocketheaven forums to find the author)
    unofficial update which added d-pad support for some major touchscreen controls which are problematic on the dsphat/dsl: http://filetrip.net/f4103-NesDS-MOD-121507.html

    after that you are still missing many files. consider moving this to a wiki project. organize it however you want, i'll help to fill in some data and make a front page post to get other members involved. if you don't wiki code, consider recruiting someone who does. i'd like to see a really pretty and well organized page that breaks up the information in tables that allow for other information as well (author, change log, file size, compatibility listings, reason for updates, homepages, reasons why projects are dead, etc).

    edit : A Wiki is a good idea unless I am the only one to do it.

    Thanks for this list!
    Since you included ScummVM, you may want to add DSFrotz too, a Z-machine reimplementation.

    Well, I can remove the panel "under construction". The list is complete. There are more than 60 emulators listed. I think the main emulators are all there.
    I think later add some Handheld Game simulators and your comments too.

    You need to make .JAD files from your .JAR files with JADMaker.
    I ran several games, Including Super Yum Yum, Orcs and Elves (Couldn't get #2 to work though), DoomRPG, and now will be trying Wolfenstein RPG. OP, please put it on the list as it is a really neat piece of software. The 2 downsides to it, however is there is no sound, and it does not support a numeric keypad. Otherwise this is one of the neatest emulators on the DS IMO.

    Ok, I understood. I unzip the class.zip file and copy the result nds/ folder to the root of flash card.
    To run a game the jar+jad files are needed in same folder.

    Well, this works fine for many games but without sound.

    Edit: List updated!
