    For those of you who just can't wait to get their hands on the Supercard DSTWO's much-anticipated Super Nintendo emulator, we've got some good news - the Supercard Team plan to release it in mid-July.

    Why the wait? The team have decided to re-write the emulator using the upcoming DSTWO SDK. The reason being is that they want to ensure that the SDK is user-friendly and powerful enough for anyone to write their own DSTWO CPU-powered emulators and other homebrew, and what better way to prove it than to show off their own SNES emulator written with it?

    GBAtemp will keep you updated with any other Supercard DSTWO news and information as it hits.

    Update: We've just caught wind that the Supercard Team are working on a new application for the DSTWO called iReader.

    This is an eBook and picture viewer that supports various formats such as TXT, PDF, HTML, JPG, PNG etc. including ZIP support. We have to say it's looking quite nice already, so check out some more info and photos here.

    The extend wait sucks, but if the emulator is good, I don't care. I'd love to play all of my favorite snes games perfectly on my ds. The sdk will also be nice once new apps are developed.

    i'd rather have the sdk at this point. once linux is ported to the scds2 we won't need eos or their crappy 1st party emus =P.

    -another world

    I'm most looking forward to the video player, that's one of the main reasons I bought this...
    Still can't wait for the SNES emu though

    That doesn't necessarily mean they will though.

    Anyways, sucks that they're going to release it mid-July, I'm off to France again and won't be back till early August. [IMG]

    Maybe I can convince one of my neighbours there to let me use their computer... I'll ask one of you guys to text me when the emulator is out. (That means you, NeSchn [IMG])

    Can't wait

    I wish I still had the time to code [IMG]

    Hopefully the snes emu is up to scratch and the gba emu will have a big update.

    and as said before dstwo linux would be great.

    Sweet!

    If it's any good, I may actually buy one instead of relying on contests.

    To put it bluntly- it's not very good. A lot of the best games on SNES don't even load, and the ones that do have all sorts of rather severe graphical issues or speed problems. And special chip games such as Mario RPG, Star Ocean, Starfox, Yoshi's Island, etc don't even work at all. The author abandoned it a while ago it seems, and even he said that within the confines of the DS' own specs, he wasn't pushing it as far as he could, nor was he happy with the state it was in. It's just not fun to have to constantly fiddle with graphical settings just to get a game running or looking somewhat decent.

    So with the extra power of the DSTWO, it should be able to fix most of the problems that snemulds had. If they can make some kind of linux for it, we might even be able to get a port of SNES9x like Dingoo has! [IMG]

    (not that i care much since i don't have a DS anymore, but i understand the want of a better SNES emulator, and i get the excitement behind the SDK being released)

    I hate to ask this but why is Linux so important also do u guys think with the ask out programmers can edit and fix the gba emulation? As long as sc team can work on the OS and if other programmers can work on game fixes and plugins this cart will be the best one out there

    While 'interesting' news, I don't see any reason to get excited until it's actually released.

    Hmm got me thinking - wasn't there a post stating the next eos (v1.03) and another plugin was being released 'soon' & now we hear that the SNES emulator coming mid-July

    So can we guess that the next eos release will be around the same time then ???
