    Okay, i've Been thinking a long time about the iphone and how you can play games and tilt it and stuff, so i was thinking maybe we can build a rumble pak AND a sensor in it so we can play games that require moving the nintendo ds or ds-lite(even though there is no game that has that). anybody got any ideas on what to start doing?

    There are several homebrew and commercial titles supporting tilt sensors on both the GBA and the DS.
    http://www.electrobee.com/ds-motion-c-7.html and neoflash did some as well.

    Rumble on the other hand is game specific unless you somehow loop it into the sound/some other useful point.

    Still if you want hardware interface specs:

    Also see some of the discussion on the guitar hero grip patches and that taito paddle controller for the DS and perhaps pull apart some roms.

    And here is an old rumble patcher, there is also source code for the 3 in 1 on the site in the EZ5 discussion if you want that

    If you want I reckon you could probably merge the existing devices at a hardware level too.

    So You want put more power from iPhone huh?? =]
    AFAIR it is possible but first emulator on iPhone have to support that, I will contact with author and look if it was mentioned somewhere, if not I will mention the idea [​IMG]
    It would be especially if I could finally make some homebrew on GBA...
