    I'm giving up on emulators for NDS...
    All the games I want to play do not work.
    Here's why I'm feeling kind of bitter:

    NesterDS:
    Earthbound 0: doesn't even boot up
    Metal Max: Starts but graphics are completely screwed until it just freezes

    SnemulDS:
    Dragon Quest VI: Graphics are all messed up, especially dialog boxes
    Earthbound: Layers are a total mess, especially during fights, not playable like that
    Star Ocean: Simply crashes the DS
    Metal Max Returns (English patched): Doesn't even boot up

    Lameboy:
    Dragon Warrior III: Quite slow, especially during fights, not playable like this

    This is what I use: EZFlash V (slot 1) with 3 in 1 (slot 2). Some games run using the 3 in 1, some others crash with it...

    I'm not being an ass saying that these emulators suck! It's just that they don't work for the only games I wanna play so I'm a bit frustrated and sad... :'(

    PS: If someone has found a way to play these games perfect (or almost), please let me know how! Thanks!

    Why not do something good, like giving up IRC forever?


    DS emulators suck, but emulators for other consoles aren't bad.......many games work perfectly....Check the SnemulDS compatibility list. 5 games isn't a good test for an emulator

    Earthbound Zero works in nesDS, except for starting a new game. You have to start a game in a different emu (I used nestopia) and then copy the save over.

    Yeah, but that's the thing, I want to play them on my DS, not on my laptop, cause I don't have my laptop everywhere, unlike my DS...

    (What's IRC?)

    It's a euphemism for suicide :/

    He is saying to make the save on something else, then use it with nesDS

    Exactly. Start a game on an emulator for the PC, then transfer the save file to your microSD card and use it in nesDS.

    Hey thanks!!!
    This trick with Nestopia and NesDS worked!

    Thanks a bunch! Now I can at least play this game on my NDS!

    I've given up on actual DS emulators, I really doubt they'll ever work by a point where I still care.

    However, I think emulators for the DS such as snemulDS are fantastic.

    Use a PC

    I think that DS emulation isn't so bad. It's basic, but then again, if you want to play the game to it's full advantage, you shouldn't be trying to run it in a DS anyway

    I have a DS Lite and a Psp and completely agree with this suggeston. GBC, Nes and GBA emulation on the Psp are full speed and near flawless with very high compatibility.

    The Psp has 3 Co-processors and one of them is a 3D GPU and 2 of them are rated at 333MHZ (1 is 166MHZ). Emulation is starting to take advantage of this resulting in improved performance, for example when the Snes emulator (port) used one of the individual processors to deal with all sound processing the main CPU was left to deal with the emulation resulting in a good speed boost. You also get full speed PS1 emulation which will soon be able to load multi disks without any need for patching, full speed CPS1/2, ScummVM, Neo CD, MVS (the list goes on) and all of these can also run on the Slim.

    I only use my DS for games, all emulation I play on my Psp.

    The PC is too limited, use your imagination.

    I tried SNEmulDS and its really hit or miss with games. Some games work ok for awhile then the visuals start to mess up. I don't try any more. Plenty of DS games to play still.
