    has anyone else noticed this? New DS Homebrew has not came out in at least 2 months. I mean actually NEW ds homebrew... not updates.

    One thing is the difficulty of making emulators and 3D homebrew. PSP has far more horsepower, so it has things like a software GBA emulator that DS isn't quite fast enough to do.

    You need new sites for homebrew, not just gbatemp.
    There has been a ton of homebrew

    Seems like it's slowing down a bit. Heaps of PSP homebrew coming out, seems like it's the better system for people who need the extra power.

    I'd like to see more on NDS. Stuff that uses the touchscreen well

    I wouldnt say it's dying, i'd say maybe people are running out of ideas or becoming lazy, or the majority of what people can do for homebrew has already reached the end point. I'm sure there's also many who are in development.

    I don't think that there was anything to get.
    And why tell me to watch my mouth? My mouth has no say in what I type. [​IMG]

    Are there actually more homebrew in DS or PSP? Both games and apps.

    There's more PSP Homebrew.

    I wish there was more DS Homebrew as well.. But what can you do about it? Learn a programming language.

    I wish I could code. [​IMG]

    I dabbled in DS Dev a while back. Sadly, a barrage of high priority projects at my work has halted those personal projects. It's really a fun system to learn and program.

    Code...? I wanted to learn JASS to make a map in Warcraft 3, but gave up because I find it too difficult since I have completely no background knowledge on programming or related stuff. I don't know if coding or writing a script is the same, but I can say that writing a script is easier and I can't even handle it, so learning to code a homebrew is something impossible for me...
