    DS Homebrew - OMalone 2.0a

    Now with Wi-Fi







    [​IMG]


    Alx06 tells me of a new version of his impressive DS homebrew - OMalone. Here's what he says:


    "OMalone, the NDS homebrew version of the board game Abalone is back with a new version (2.0a). This time with Wi-Fi support.
    So now you can play against any one, any time. A real time ladder is also now available to follow your progression."

    He's also going to organise and hold a tournament here at GBAtemp, so if you're interested in competing, please put your name down in this topic.

    OMalone is an impressive homebrew and Alx06 has put a lot of work into it, so why not check it out for yourself.

    Does this work with G6 Lite ?

    I'm guessing no since only a handful of DS homebrew games work on it [​IMG]

    Thanks for that.

    It seems like a pretty strategic game, well worth the try.

    I've tried it a couple times as well as the online wi-fi matches. The game is nothing short of a homebrew gem, you'll be glad you gave it a try. Be sure to visit the site though, there are different versions of the download for different carts (I had trouble at first because I added the wrong version to my SCL).

    Oh, great. I'm not nearly good enough for a tournament, but this is one good game.

    This does work on G6 Lite, you just need to download the .ds.gba file and rename it to .nds then copy over using Direct Copy.

    Hi all,

    I've contacted the author of wfcstatus to ask him if he can add omalone in the supported games.
    I hope he could do that easily. It would help the game a lot.
    Thanks for the info, as I didn't know this software before !

    PiNa, it seems to work on SCLR, just use the .nds file.

    Kamakzie, thanks for the info, I'll write it on the website.


    to all : no, you're not too bad to participe to the tournament, just try !
    ;-)

    Alx

    How exactly is it possible that a homebrew have Online Wi-Fi Support?
    Doesnt it need the official Nintendo Wi-Fi Servers for that?

    I 've implemented my own server.
    It does not connect to nintendo's server, for sure.

    Small question, does it need a .sav file to save to? And if yes, do I have to save using QPC on Supercard?

    EDIT: Found a bug, you can battle Vector before you unlock him by just clicking him on the touchscreen.
