    Hi Everyone.

    I've started a petition to issue a formal request to the M3 Team to improve the support for the M3 and G6 by working more closely with homebrew developers and providing them with the tools they need to support these fine products.

    If you'd like to participate, Please go here to sign the petition and make your voice heard.

    Thank you.

    Bad homebrew support is the reason why I haven't bought a M3 or G6 Lite.
    I run homebrew on my old DS using SuperCard SD instead.

    My DS Lite is "untouched" so far.

    Well, ScummVM support can always be improved so games with voices can be played. Also, the coolest homebrew like DSOrganize, Doom DS and Moonshell don't quite run on the G6 Lite..

    BTW, I sent G6 Flash an e-mail before I saw the petition. Here's what I got back (within a day!):

    Looks like they take things serious! [​IMG]

    I'm not so sure, I got the EXACT same response when I emailed them. Every single word is the same.

    it's not like EVERY homebrew isn't working. it's just dsorganize u're all worried about right (or future ones involving saving)?

    I don't think they will do anything if it's just ONE homebrew you're worrying about. Might as well get SC lite

    Yeah, many homebrew just works. But (correct me it I'm wrong) some homebrew uses files other than .nds files, for example ScummVM DS with speech. In order for homebrew like that one it needs to know how to load files from the device it's running on, and the only ones that know that right now are the G6 developers. At least, that's how I see the situation now (I don't even have my G6 Lite now, it's somewhere in an airplane right now [​IMG])

    Yeah, that's right, Jelbo. Only homebrew that looks to external files outside the .NDS won't work. Personally I'm mostly interested in the games and emulators when it comes to homebrew, I could care less abot stuff like DS Organize (which I tried on my Supercard and it doesn't offer features that I can't get with an 89cent spiralbound notebook). About 98% of homebrew games work, only three or four have an external file system. And all the emulators I've tried have a way of appending the ROMs to the emulator file into one .NDS, so they all work, too.


    ...word is bondage...

    Append mode sucks anyway. What do you think about future versions of Moonshell? Appending just won`t do.

    That email that the G6/M3 team is mailing out is 100% correct. This is an issue with the developers of the software, not with M3/G6.
