  • Hey, if we were to bring the IRC bridge back, would you consider rejoining it?

    Hey Coto, can you check to make sure ARGV works with SNEmulDS-TWL build?
    Coto

    Tested, working fine.

    The workflow was: TWLMenu++ -> TGDS-Multiboot TWL -> (add a 2nd arg here from the filesystem) -> reloading into TGDS-argv-test TWL.
    And TGDS-argv-test TWL indeed could read the ARGV. (NTR mode behaves the same, same for SnemulDS NTR and TWL)

    Hey there, you still around?

    It's been unsettling times for everyone. And yeah pretty much dev'ing (for everyone capable of it) is a must today.
    I'm glad to hear newer DS devs are working on stuff, the hard work must be set as some kind of precedent to solve problems better overall. I like to read other devs work and how they overcome logical problems.

    As for the SnemulDS, i'd like to at least leave the source in mint condition (that is, as it was in original SnemulDS 0.6 sources, GUI included), and merge some nasty bugfixes i've found along the way while coding.

    But for doing that, a severe clean up of the environment is required to build it, that includes removing bloated TGDS code.
    That space would then be reserved for TWL code.

    Thing is, I tried to do that but I lost motivation almost instantly, lol.
    I'd be rather working on 3D game ports for Nintendo DS instead.

    (edit: also thank you for your words on the TGDS TWL part, in fact the hard work was done by devkitPro team, i just adapted some stuff)
    Condolences to Trump family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make America great again!

    I just noticed you left the GC. That's sad
    Anywho, do you have the NinjaPassx9 kernel on you? I want to try something and Google doesn't give any working download links

    Also no, the X9SD needs to be reverse engineered.

    I understand. Well, for all that you did help us with, I thank you.
    PS: Would we be allowed to use your SNEmulDS on TWiLight Menu++ for Flashcart users?

    Of course that's the intent I had in first place when restoring TGDS 1.6

    Hey, I had an idea to improve TGDS compatibility booting from TWiLight Menu++ on flashcarts.
    Why not make an application that dumps the RAM and saves it to a file on the SD card?

    This would be an alternative to tgds-multiboot, right? I was reading through the loader code and thought how was it possible to run dkarm nds binaries

    You mean booting TGDS from TWiLight Menu++? Yes

    Though, the RAM dump thing is moreso just compatibility, to check why stuff like YSMenu can't be booted from TWiLight but can from WoodR4

    Hello, do you have a discord account by any chance?

    LOL no, I am too old for that and I'm just 31 years old. But you can send PMs either here or at nesdev

    Late response, but do you use IRC?
    I was thinking we could setup a relay bot between a Discord channel and an IRC channel, so that we could quick chat.

    Yeah, it could be. But I may connect/disconnect often.

    Oh wow, this seems extremely interesting. I wonder if I could port it over to nds-bootstrap, so that we could load TGDS NDS Homebrew on it
    Coto

    If you want guidance I can give for sure! Now, if you could help me adding TGDS to DSi mode that would be awesome. Since you have TWL experience. Shoot me a PM if you are interested

    Their amplifiers are simply among the best. Love them for that.

    DS DAC is almost 1 : 0.79. Guitars, drums, vocals overall sounding much better (other than Nintendo songs, being optimized for low-end hardware, FIR related).
    This is how devices used to sound 15 years ago, "not too plastic" and I love that

    Well said! The not being "optimized" thing is such a pity though, I listen to new music on a Fiio X7 II, and some are designed for lower end hardware so they sound kinda bad.

    Hello Coto. I have a question for you: Would it be possible for you to take a look at nds-bootstrap and see why SNEmulDS does not work on it?

    I think the nds-bootstrap devs hook something onto IRQ. Since ToolchainGenericDS is the default toolchain I wrote for SNEmulDS, the IRQ handler vary slightly. I would add support to that but I am fully busy coding different things.

    For instance, I never disable IME register when dealing with interrupts. That means faster IRQs but some homebrew relying on IME disabled might lock because IME is never disabled while TGDS is running on whatever TGDS project.
    Coto
    Coto
    btw, the hook is due to ARM7i-only SD access on DSi
    Thanks for your work on NesDS. Emulating NiFi is like black magic to me.

    gracias amigo. But legacy nifi in NesDS wasn't coded by me. What I did was to take NesDS nifi driver in NesDS and turn it into NIFI over internet, and improve local nifi (used in ToolchainGenericDS). Also I am adding nifi to SnemulDS, but it needs some work .
