    Emulation is a lot better, tested in 3DSX and CIA. I haven't seen the framerate dip below 99% yet, but it's really hard to tell that Pac-Man is closing his mouth (that could just be due to the LCD itself). Sound is a lot better, but there's still some quirks here and there (Pac-Man's intro music sounds like chimey bells, for example, which "enable higher frequencies" off seems to fix?).

    Is there a way to use the d-pad instead of the circle pad for games? It's working fine in the menus, but I can't get it to work in any games. Obviously, you would need the circle pad for the 5200's analogue controls, but it's literally killing me in these 8-bit games.


    Same here, I just tested on Centipede.

    I just found this emulator yesterday (yeah, I'm a bit late), and I'm loving it. Thank you VERY much for this! Everything I've tried so far has been working great, with just one exception. The 5200 emulation is unplayable for me because the joystick calibration is too far off and is always pointed right/down, so any character continually runs/moves right/down.

    I also would like to ask if there are just a couple of things that could be tweaked:
    1) D-pad control as a option instead of only the analog stick (this would make the A8 games easier to play, although the analog "should" be good for some of the 5200 games if the calibration is fixed). Still, a digital control option would enhance gameplay so much.
    2) Could you add the option to turn off the bottom screen by tapping the (unused) upper portion of the bottom screen?

    Again, thank you very much for this port. It definitely fills a huge gap for me in 3DS emulation. And, if you're able to add those couple of features, it would be absolutely perfect in my opinion. :-)


    edit: lol, looks like I'm repeating some of what Asaki said.

    Make a video player that takes advantage of the N3DS's decoder chip! :D

    And a video player or MP3 player for O3DS couldn't hurt either. For MP3, something with tabbed sorting on the top screen with maybe a graphical equilizer LEDs would be sweet, and have the songs, albums, and control buttons on the bottom. I'm not asking for FLAC, but that would be impressive. MP3 and m4a should be fine though.

    OpenTTD sounds really good, since the 3DS is really missing some good old strategy sims. In that regard let me quote myself from the homebrew suggestions thread:

    At least I'm not the only one who can't play digital games with analogue controls.

    Not sure I understand completely, but are you saying that you've added digital controls to the D-pad on the github? If so, can we get a compiled cia?






    Wherever you want. You can point it to start up in your directory in the settings.

    Hi, I am having trouble getting this to work. Both the homebrew launcher and cia version instantly exit back to the homebrew launcher/home menu respectively, no error messages. I am using a new 3ds xl on 9.2.0E.

    I think the reason was because my Gateway card or ds flash cards wouldn't work on a later firmware, If that's not it then I've forgotten.

    You might want to tweak this a bit. Every time I try to run a 5200 game, it quickly switches over to "custom XL/XE mode," which prevents the game from running and is intensely aggravating besides. I've tried setting the system manually to 5200, but it keeps doing the same thing. Help!

    I've got 5200.ROM in there. I didn't know it let you choose a path... I thought it just chose a default.

    Also, I think the extension the games have is A52. Should it be BIN instead?

    EDIT: Okay, I see my problem. You've got to specify that it's a 5200 cartridge or else it won't work. But there's another issue... no second fire button. This makes games like Dreadnaught Factor impossible to play properly.
