    First of all, I tried it once using crossover, but it doesn't seem to be working :'(
    Whenever I put in the .nes file I get out a .gba file. I am using the program that came with NesterDS, but is there a program for mac? Or does anyone know what I am doing wrong? [​IMG]

    Ok, I have another question. I am going to use nesds, but my games don't have .nes at the end, so it there anyway on a mac to make ll the files on a folder have .nes at the end? Like using terminal or something?

    Try without the .nes part. Finder likes to hide file extensions. If nesDS doesn't pick them up, Control-Click (right-click) on the nes file in the Finder, click Get Info, and under 'Name and Extension' add the appropriate extension (.nes).

    OK. Easy steps. Get a nes game. If it is a nes game, it will have .nes at the end. If it is in .zip, double click it to open the zip file. Make a folder on your flashccart names "NES" or anything. Get NESDS, tell me if you need a link, then put the nesds on your card somewhere. You may want to look at the compatibility. Then, If your cart does not have auto DLDi patching, patch it yourself. Then play it. Select your .nes file, and play.

    If the extension at the end is not .nes, it is not a nes game. I use a mac, trust me, you do not have to mess with the files. It is as easy as that.
