    I have an Action Replay DSi, and I am trying to run SNEmulDS. The emulator loads, but it doesnt detect any roms at all.
    The roms are located in the SNES folder of the ROOT of the memory card. The emulator itself and the config file are both also located at the root.
    I don't understand why it won't run the games [​IMG]
    I downloaded the pre-patched R4DS / M3 Simply version of SNEmulDS here, as I have read that the DLDI patches for the R4 and M3 simply work for the ARDSi.
    Soo... what should I do? I haven't found any emulator that works for me yet...

    That doesnt make any sense. I am going to go out on a limb and say you probably need use the Datel Games N Music DLDI file to patch the homebrew to work on your ARDSi.
    The R4 and M3 DLDI is for thoes cards onl.

    Well, I don't know very much about DLDI's (or how to patch them for that matter) plus the SNEmulDS website didn't provide any download links for the emulator patched with the Games n' Music DLDI.
    And, there are no DL links to download un-patched versions. (The links on the blog on the HP are broken)
    I am trying this with v5, and without a clean version, I can't patch it myself.

    EDIT: Ok, so I patched it with dlditool, but it had the exact same driver. So even though it said R4 and M3 Simply, it was really Datel Games n' Music
    So, now. what should I do?

    Did you edit the config to point to the SNES folder?

    its already pointing to the SNES folder, here, this is exactly what it says:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    As you can see, it says "ROMPath = /SNES"
    Are my games maybe named incorrectly? Like, should there be no spaces?
    they all end in the .smc file format.

    Yes, and it just stays at the "Attempting to load with the Chism loader"
    screen for like forever...

    EDIT: maybe I need to try an unpatched version. but I cant seem to find one, all the links on SNEmul's page are broken.

    EDIT: Nevermind... I re-patched it and now it works fine. Some games don't run though (like Kirby's DL3... T~T)
    and for some reason Mario all stars doesn't let me control the menu... o well, it still runs! [​IMG]

    Just so you know for the future, DLDI patching can easily be overwritten. It really doesn't matter if the file was pre-patched for a certain card or not (and in fact I was always confused why people offered pre-patched versions when it would benefit the user so much more to learn how to patch on their own).

    And yes, any game that uses a special coprocessor chip will definitely not run on SNEmulDS. This includes Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby Super Star, Super Mario RPG, Star Fox, and Yoshi's Island just to name a few popular games with coprocessor chips. Compatibility with other games may vary, as SNES emulation on the DS never really hit a very high level of compatibility. I'd point you to the PocketHeaven Wiki compatibility list (which has tips for specific games) but PH is still down so I can't. The GBATemp Wiki also has a compatibility list if you want to give that a shot.

    Has anyone managed to get this work? I've tried SNemulDS and SNES.DS to no avail and I've tried having the roms on the card in the ARDSi and in the DS itself in a SNES folder but nothing works

    I have downloaded and redownload, patched and repatchd and I can't get SNEmulDS to work on the ARDSi, I used the GnM DLDI patch and it doesn't work, i have tried 2 different versions of snemul and they still don't work, well by work I mean recognize the roms, they load but don't recognize any roms in the folder, config points to /SNES and that is where my roms are but they do not show up..........

    No, they are all unzipped, they all have the extension .sfc, should it be something else? I think there was another one I saw once but idk....

    I think you need to patch the emulator with the dldi patcher.

    Best directions on the net!!

    Download SNEmulDSv05b.zip or try the latest alpha SNEmulDS06-WIP2.zip
    Extract the contents of either file to your computer (you do this because the file is compressed---download 7zip for free if you dont have a paid program
    copy SNEmulDS.nds to the apps folder of your card FOR most people this is moonshell/extlink (put it in there)
    Copy the file snemul.cfg to the root of your card (that means the first screen when you open your micro sd card on your computer!)
    Create a folder called SNES in the root of your micro SD card and put your 'roms' aka games in there. They can be named anything you want but must end with a .smc
    Run SNEmulDS from the moonshell2/extlink folder. That means open moonshell2 and then open extlink and then just select the file SNEmulDS.nds and you will see all the roms you put in your SNES folder

    Congratulations your playing super nintendo games on your nintendo DS whatever!
