    Online is actually easier than local multiplayer, as it only uses standard wifi features :P local MP on the other hand uses some pretty sick specific features, I made a post about them on the melonDS blog.

    It even worked in desmume, for a while. I believe the related NGEmu thread is still stickied in their desmume forum.


    also re: WFC

    I don't believe there's much of a legal issue with having an emulator than can connect to WFC. This is moot though as the WFC servers are offline, but...

    >people will use it to cheat and ruin WFC
    They never needed a fancypants wifi-enabled emulator to cheat and ruin WFC. They just had to have an ARDS and tick a few checkboxes. And this isn't a problem if the servers have proper cheat protection (but of course lolnintendo).

    I don't know of any legal action against a network-enabled emulator, but then again I haven't been paying attention to everything.

    So this seems to require some bios and firmware.bin files from an actual DS. Is there any available homebrew on temp that dump such files? I'd love to try it

    There was some legal action for programmed world which was a Konami eamuse emulator. Pretty sure that was all related to use of Konami assets ie. qpro parts and the like and they also ran the latest data which was in arcades in japan.

    It requires a very powerful cpu to emulate properly huh??? Let's see:

    I7 6700k 300+bucks vs a used ds lite 50bucks

    11/10 would get last gen cpu to emulate cheap ds

    you will need actually two i9 CPUs (one for each screen of the DS) and make them work together via SLI

    I superglued my SLI bridge onto the processors but now it just ignites when I hit the power button. Gonna keep a bucket of water handy to see if that helps it run better.

    EDIT: It works! I can run Settings at a blazing 3 frames per secon! Take THAT, Nintendo! Smell of electrical smoke has filled the room but I can scan for access points all day now!

    It's networked within two instances on the computer, not emulator to actual hardware

    There's a difference between "network-enabled emulator" and "private server for arcade cabinets running pirated software"...

    The wifi is not fully emulate yet. It's working but not fully just yet. GO to the first page if you want to play DS games but don't expect the wifi to work like Super Mario Kart DS multiplayers, not yet anyway. :)
