    Is there a bookstyle layout for the screens in no$GBA? (If I were to guess, the answer is no)


    My second question would be: Is there a way to emulate sleep mode? (Again, I'm guessing the answer is no.)

    1. You can get one a LCD screen which has a rotating screen [​IMG]

    2. Why do you want to emulate sleep mode? It's main purpose is to preserve battery power, of which is irrevelant when emulated.

    1. No

    2. Minimizing no$gba emulates a screen close, if you're playing a game that reacts to screen closes like Hotel Dusk, or Zelda PH.

    Well for bookstyle what you could do is change your screen sideways... no i dont mean rotate i mean pressing Ctrl-Alt-and either left or right arrow key
    Works on most computers

    Link works fine here, here's the download link for myZoom V1.8.25
    http://www.mediafire.com/?j1bildjdtmn

    You can put it anywhere you want, start no$gba then start the my zoom program.

    Thanks guys. And yes, one of the games I had in mind was Hotel Dusk, which utilizes sleep mode and the bookstyle screen. I didn't know minimizing the window emulates sleep mode. What a very creative way to go about it. [​IMG]


    I'll take a look at that program, Killermech. Thanks for that.

    Technically it emulates shutting the DS. The DS will only go into to sleep mode if the game tells it to, which is why homebrew doesn't always support it.
