    A new NESDS has been released by a (seemingly) new developer intending to re-code the emu to be open-source, and that's just what it is.

    Emu here:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/nesds/files/

    It seems that he has also added support for cheats [​IMG]

    Woah. Where did you find this? Who made it?

    And the biggest question... Does Earthbound Zero work on it?

    Haven't had a chance to test it yet. But I will. Oh, I WILL. I'll have to test it on my SLOT2 for now so I'm not sure if it'll boot but I'll defenetely see what's changed when I get mah DSTWO.

    Saw the news on EmuCR (they're pretty much a site that relies on the community to cite new releases of emus) and got it right away, while simultaneously posting it to bigger sites.

    The guy making it appears to call himself "huminghao".

    Well... it appears that there are no gameplay changes at all. I tested several problem titles (TMNT 2, Earthbound, Zelda 2) and they do not show any changes.

    Any other ones people are welcome to try -- but it seems as if cheat support is the only new addition.

    Also, Since it is open source now (be thankful) people can work on compatibility. [​IMG]

    then start the game on an nes emulator on a computer, get past the name entry screens, save at the telephone and then put the *.sav on your card like a normal NES .sav. just don't use savestates.

    I think cheat function might mean game genie (that was the only one around during the days of NES, right?) so it may be a matter of it appearing or not, so I suggest trying nesDS_cheat.NDS on the Sourceforge page instead of the NesDS.nds, if you weren't already.

    Probly can't run any extensive tests on this tonight. Hell, it took six months of trial and error just to get the OLD NESDS to run on my ancient cart (which is the main reason I'm replacing it)

    So ya, look for Game-genie or something, I guess.

    You're right! Sweeeeet. People should know about this! I will tell them. Thanks for the info.

    @ Yuan -- Yeah, like I said, it does not seem game compatibility has increased. Just cheats now.

    Still trying to figure that out.

    Also, I have NO CLUE about the burn in thing for the XL. Do not have one, cannot test.

    I turned off flicker hasn't happened since.

    Is there any way to change the default display option to none...permanently?

    Needs Moonshell2 extlink.
    Also, the nesDS_cheat version crashes on start up when run through Moonshell2 (2.10b9).
