    Java for NDS is a really proof-of-concept project that allows to run really simple java programs written specifically for the DS. It's *not* going to run any games or apps made for computers/smartphones. Not at all.

    It's just... not possible.

    Even with Expansion Pack wouldn't it be possible? Phones like SE K750i probably doesn't have more than 8-16 MB "RAM" :P

    but S40 Phones has less memory than DS but still they can play Java Games successfully...
    (Angry Birds can be played on a S40 Phone)

    Your only chance is if you get the source code of the game and adapt the game to the DS. However, you'll have to rework the entire code.

    Is Angry Birds really worth creating a new game? :ha:

    First off, you want to be using PSTROS NDS rather than Java4NDS. Then you'll want to be trying really simple old-school MIDP Java games for older cell phones for testing. If, and only if, you get that working, then worry about trying to get Angry Birds to work (which it probably will not). Note that if your game only came as a .jar file, I think you'll need to use a program to create a corresponding .jad file for it.

    Hmm I believe there are "generators" of JAD files

    Played around w/this a lil bit today. was able to get linerider runnin', and a simple atv game, too.
    There's a PstrosDS DL link and set-up instructions at supercartes DS Emulators sticky, in the 'Others' category.

    It'd be neat to see a dstwo version, or a dsi version that could handle the likes of angrybirds and such.

    Joke or not, the Tetris game on http://kiang.org/jor...e/tetrismidlet/ works fine! =D (note that you must use JADmaker to generate a .jad file for this game, rather than using the one provided on the website).

    EDIT: Holy crap it actually runs MEboy properly. Granted, playing my GBC game at 1 fps isn't enjoyable at all, and I can't manage to change the settings within the emulator, but it actually works. Wow.
