    I love this emulator. For games with resolution 256 instead of 320 it is a perfect fit on the ds screen! I have over 50 of those gems :)

    But i would really love to have a screen saver function for the second screen when playing games. Would that be possible to add to the emulator? Someone help a shmup gamer ;)

    Sad to dissapoint you - but the source for jenesisDS is NOT open-source NOR did the developer ever release it to the public.

    I think I read somewhere that the developer got a job at SEGA and is therefore highly unlikely to EVER release the source.

    No source = No improvements possible

    Thanks, how do we use this? I've tried putting the contents of the zip on the root of the SD, in the DS plugin folder, and also tried moving the .plg file between both and just get a black screen when booting.

    Did you make an .ini for the plugin file?
    If you use the regular EOS and not BAGplug you need to write an .ini file for it.

    I'm just trying to get it running at all right now. I'll worry about a plugin later.

    General DsTwo Linux rules applies - I got it to work with 2GB SanDisk MicroSD formatted with Partition Magic according to spec in this thread: http://gbatemp.net/threads/the-huge-ds-two-linux-micro-sd-card-thread.354401/

    Here are my oppinions about picoDrive/dsLinux:

    + Manages a couple of roms that jEnesisDs can't run
    + Screen scaling

    - Needs particular microSD/formatting (dsLinux)
    - Bloated size (due to the dsLinux overhead)
    - Pretty lousy menus (hard to read)
