    Since i have got a 3-in-1 Expansion pack I've been wondering this:

    Is there any homebrew which uses the slot 2's RAM?

    EDIT: 400th post...yippy!

    SNEmulDS 0.6 uses it as will the new version of QuakeDS when that comes out in a few weeks (hopefully).

    Give it time, it's kinda new (the extra RAM). I'm sure more homebrew devs will use it in their programs and games in the future (hopefully).

    Okay, thanks.

    I tried SNEmulDS, it says on the website 'Various External RAM packages can be used to improve large rom emulation, see snemul.cfg for more informations.'


    What program do i have to use to open files thta have '.cfg' at the end of it?

    Alot of odd files like that open with a text editor, it's almost always worth a shot if you don't know what else to use.

    Homebrew that use RAM:

    Mini Vmac - Mac OS emu soon to be released
    QuakeDS - Soon to be released
    DSLinux - Linux on the DS
    MemtestARM - Memory test app for RAM packs
    SnemulDS - Recent release

    To edit the cfg file for SnesmulDS you can use DSOrganize.

    Hm, nothing that interests me. Oh well, that extra ram will go un used for a while.
