Hey guys, I searched without much hope for 16:9 NDS games but then I was surprised by this thread.
How can I get AR codes working via Retroarch Desmume core?

The cht cheat files look like this, in this particular case SM64DS, inside Retroarch's cheats directory:

cheat20_desc = "Hold L+R+LEFT to Play as Wario"
cheat20_code = "94000130+000000DF+22096121+00000002+D0000000+00000000"
cheat20_enable = false
cheat21_desc = "Hold L+R+RIGHT to Play as Luigi"
cheat21_code = "94000130+000000EF+22096121+00000001+D0000000+00000000"
cheat21_enable = false
cheat22_desc = "Hold L+R+DOWN to Play as Mario"
cheat22_code = "94000130+0000007F+22096121+00000000+D0000000+00000000"

You can add cheats within Retroarch, but, here's an example.

52282328 00001555
02282328 00001C72
D2000000 00000000


The above code is for Pokemon White.

Replace all new lines with a +:

52282328 00001555+02282328 00001C72+D2000000 00000000

Replace all spaces with a +:

52282328+00001555+02282328+00001C72+D2000000+00000000

Then put that in the RetroArch add cheat UI, or, just add it to the cheat file manually.

I didn't test other codes from this guy's post, but the one I tried above didn't work for the US version of NSMB DS, any hints?

Hey, I'm trying to get 16: 9 working for Inazuma Eleven 2, but for me only the bottom screen is stretching for whatever reason.
I have tried all values with 1555, but I don't know what to do next.
Can anyone please help me?

Hello to everyone, I'm not very expert in building up the formula, I would like to build a Pokémon Platino 16:9 rom ITALIAN version, can anyone guide me? I've already tried the code with the ENG version and it works very well

Anyone got a European 16:9 code for Animal Crossing Wild World? I'm from the UK and I can't get my hands on an American copy.

Hello.

Whenever I try to make my aspect ratio 16:9, I get this message:

Oh no! The Aspect Ratio and Resolution you chose would result in a DeSmuME window that is bigger than your display.
To reduce the size, try reduce the resolution or use a smaller aspect ratio
Since you are trying to use the same aspect ratio for DeSmuME as your Screen, i'm assuming you want to go fullscreen, if this is the case, you should lower the resolution or set the screens amount to "One LCD" in DeSmuME as that will help lower the window size.
If your curious, you tried to resize DeSmuME to 2560x1440
That size is: 0 pixels wider & 0 pixels taller than your display :O

I have One LCD on and tried Horizontal as well, still won't even start. I have a 2560x1440 display. What's the issue here?

Hey there. I’ve been trying to follow this guide and finally just got it to work on my phone. However I noticed it stretches out the text boxes when talking to NPCs too. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks again!

Hey PRAGMA, thanks for making this cool little program. You might want to add that you have to download .NET Core 3.1 runtime for this to open, because I wasn't even getting any sort of error when opening DeSmuMAR without it.

Cheers

I've tried the phantom hourglass code, but it doesn't seem to work in buildings - anyone else notice that? After exiting the building it glitches and stays stretched out...

In using Drastic and the code listed from the main page. I realize it might be a Drastic specific issue, though, as when I save the game using a save state, then load that state, it works again. Not sure what's up. It's definitely related to going in and out of buildings.

Also - it changes back to the correct aspect ratio when changing items... Weird.

Hello. I've tried to run DeSmuMAR as an administator, but it only opens a cmd window that immediately gets closed. Does anyone know how to fix this ?

That's happening to me, too. I don't know why.

If you open PowerShell as Admin, then type
Code:
cd "C:/folder/where/desmumar/is"
and then proceed to type
Code:
.\DeSmuMAR.exe
it should then provide you with a log of text. If so, what does it state?
