    Oh and on the point of formatting, you should underline Games and App/Emulator and when something gets say 5 votes it bolded, 10 red, 20 blue, 50 green ect and add a key [​IMG]

    how about cart specific, homebrew/emulators
    using "spoilers", so if I have a dstwo I can click on the dstwo spoiler and see all the dstwo only emulators/apps/homebre, etc

    example for the dstwo..imenu, ds2 pong, the soon to be release Atari 7800 emulator

    that way you won't get a bunch of questions from noobs asking if the imenu will work on their R4 clone

    should I make a separate section for these or just label them (clearly) as DSTWO only?

    Also, are those votes? I don't think so

    I'm actually thinking I'll make an extra section for DSTWO only stuff, because not everyone will have access to them, and thus they will get a lower percentage of the votes

    so, time to make an edit

    Code:
    [p= ]text[/p]
    This is what it looks like[/p]

    sorry for the lack of updates recently, been busy

    I'm going to try to simplify the rules, as some people obviously didn't bother with them

    DSbible was a personal pick, it's just to kick it off, I doubt it will be up top for long

    I don't know of a lot of homebrew. I have an Atari emulator but I can't remember what it's called.

    +1 jEnesisDS (It amazes me how good this emulator actually is, maybe it's because Genesis is easier to emulate but it seems better than the DSTWO's SNES emulator)

    I'll get around to updating that...

    I think i'll create a utilities sections...

    Edit: not adding MENUdo as there is no public download

    also, short descriptions please, makes it easier so I don't have to look it up and make assumptions, I'm talking to Xenon too, because I don't really know what all of the things are for =/
