I just cannot get DS Game Maker to work.
So if there are any alternatives, they must fit with these requirements.
1. Good for beginers
2. Support for DS, not DSi
3. Easy sprite and input stuff.
4. Support for mp3 and midi formats.
So if there is nothing like that, then tell me how to work with DS Game Maker.
and yes, i know DS Game Maker does not use midi files, but i can convert a midi to mp3.

apparantly needs old devkitpro

It needs an older devkitPro version, though.
This installs an older version, required for DSGM to compile games.

does not work, it tries to download from source forge but it does not exist there anymore
You shouldn't need to update those files at all actually (from my understanding atleast) there's a text document in there explaining it
edit: actually I see your problem now. I would just try older version of devkitpro until you find a compatible one, but @Robz8 might be able to help

Actually yes, I was hoping to get something from this six-month-old thread :)
Considering i moved on and i hand code the stuff, yeah, please lock this thread, i will do a post related to a SDK for a different system in a bit though, Unity to be percise.
