    Are there any homebrew that make it so you can record the gameplay directly from your gameboy, and then save them onto your SD card?(using Supercard Ds for example)
    Thanks. [​IMG]

    not sure this is possible because that means you have to run the homebrew & the game at the same time
    which i have never heard of before

    It's not powerful enough to run both. Hell, I think running in-game cheats or real time save etc. makes it go slower. Hell, even the PSP which is way powerful, it can't do that for it's own games, it can only screenshot.

    But the PSP has an operating system running in the background, so you can run both the screen capture application and the game at the same time. With the DS, as soon as the game is loaded, whatever was previously running gets shut out of memory. Thus, an application like this isn't really feasible.

    The PSP is powerful enough to record gameplay. Dissidia records your battles and save them on your memory card. But we're talking about homebrew, not games..

    God, did ANY of you thoroughly read the post? HE SAID GAMEBOY, NOT DS. ffs, learn to read.

    While theoretically possible, I don't believe an existing program has been made that can do this.

    Technically it just saves the data. Brawl's replays work the same way. It just saves the inputs done, then plays them back.

    You're not going to find this homebrew. The only way you're doing that is running the game through an emulator on your computer and using a screen capture program like Hypercam.

    Calm down mate. When a person asks a question in the "NDS - Homebrew Games & Applications" section, one would generally assume that he is referring to NDS. He could have just gotten the terms mixed up.

    Almost impossible, unless you could somehow film during the game (which I really doubt), close the game after you're done and then save it to the card.

    I think he is either referring to filming a GBA game on DS or filming a DS game. Either way, it's NDS homebrew.

    What I got from the OP is that he wanted to record Gameboy footage (presumably from an emulator) on his DS. I don't think that is impossible, as you can already change how the emulator works on the DS.

    @edgedancer
    I'm calm...
    The reason it would be in NDS section is because he wants the recording done on a DS.

    In any event, whatever the goal or objective may be, the best (and easiest) way to do it would be on a PC.

    Right, but if loading an NDS program wipes everything else out of memory, and the emulator as well as the recorder are separate NDS files, then obviously they wouldn't be able to function together.

    Maybe if a Gameboy emulator was fitted with a recording option? I doubt that'll happen.
