    It has been nearly a year since the NDS release but no workable emu. Are people working hard enough ? Two months after the GBA was release we had an emulator that played 90 % of the roms perfectly but we still don't have a NDS emu that play even 1 rom well.

    You make it sound like people are obligated to work hard on emulators... You should buy a DS and a flash cart, that way you can play everything and it's better than an emu.

    The DS's processing power is much greater than that of the GBA making it more difficult to optimize on current PC's. As pc power and speed increases the ability to emulate the DS and the PSP and other systems no doubt will become easier. There are a couple of DS emulators out there but they are far from perfect. It will take time.

    As the speed of the game systems approaches the speeds of the current home pc's the time gap between a systems debut and emulation no doubt become longer than we have become accustomed to in the past.

    This is a very offending topic for the people who work hard on the various NDS emulators like DSemuMe, iDeaS, DualiS...
    They do not owe you anything and though they spend days and days working, without asking anything in return.

    Now I think you got the answer. Google "DSemuMe", "iDeaS" (ds emulator), and "DualiS", download and try them.
    See for yourself what the authors have accomplished, and please be a little more grateful next time you use a free software because there are actually people behind it.

    I will now close this topic.
