    Wow, impressive! After waiting for years I can now suddenly play Descent on two of my handhelds.

    I can't get it to work.

    All I get is this debug txt:

    I'm using Supercard Lite. Anyone has the same problem?

    i assume it this is 1 of the homebrew games where you need the files from the install directory on the flashcart as well as the rom

    its just im having trouble getting it to install on my pc, when i try and open "install.exe" the window flashes up for a second and thats it

    any ideas?

    Make sure to update to datafiles to 1.5 (only registered version is supported). Then start the game and touch the touch screen to start the game (it may look like it doesn't work but try to push the touch screen)

    EDIT: and i think it has to be placed in the root of memory card to work too (it that hasn't been changed) and don't forget to patch with the correct DLDI-file.

    you need to put in your root directory : .nds file patched with dldi for your cart, descent.hog and descent.pig (both of these files patched to version 1.5)
