    Why do humans climb mountains? Because they're there.

    Or, less dramatically, it's because endrift felt like doing it, and to further the pursuit of accurate/optimized emulation of these platforms. Sure, for GB/GBC you have stuff like bgb and Gambatte that are highly accurate, but as for the GBA, there were slim pickings up until she decided to start working on mGBA, and the DS scene is pretty similar, with basically only DeSmuME and no$ (and DraStic on Android). And no$, while optimized, is extremely unportable. So, imo, let's just appreciate the efforts endrift is putting forth to further the craft of emulation for these two platforms. :)

    Well I wasn't planning on having him arrested.

    It just seems entirely pointless to expend so much effort doing something that has been done, and done well.

    There is always Andyroid (and I believe Drastic now has an x86 version so no massive performance hit due to ARM emulation)

Just to see if they work well again I have a 3ds xl but I always thought it was crap & I didn't like the 3D it just made my eyes hurt so it just sits I'm my console collection shelf

    It just seems entirely pointless to expend so much effort playing football that has been played, and played well.
    It just seems entirely pointless to expend so much effort playing soccer that has been played, and played well.
    It just seems entirely pointless to expend so much effort playing plays that have been played, and played well.
    It just seems entirely pointless to expend so much effort creating Office apps that have been created, and created well.

    You were saying? (again)

    Ugh you're a waste of my existence.

    NFL makes billions of dollars. Players make millions
    FIFA makes billions of dollars. Players make millions.
    Broadway makes a good sum i'm sure. Actors do in turn, of course.
    Office sells thousands of copies for an insane price to businesses and companies that don't know better or don't care. Likely making microsoft millions if not more.

    Am I done here? or are you going to waste my time again.

    Well remember it's also an All-In-One, but I guess no$GBA is that too. But you never know, it might be the next biggest thing.

    Not all examples are so shit.
    You just happened to give me all monetary examples of why something is done. For money, in all of those cases except Broadway. Though money is certainly one goal.

    Anyway, the project is either being done for experience, in which case there more fruitful options but at the same time, it's his choice how he chooses to improve.
    or for...well, any other reason which would make it a pointless project.
    I don't actually care this much i'm just replying to you wasting my time.

    i guess if you really want to use drastic there's this. but it seems a bit much to "emulate" android (term used loosely here) to run a DS emulator, when getting a native one is better.

    It's slower than VBA for me, it gets slowdowns whenever I boot a game.

    Hope this has bigger compatibility with games,as well as optimization to low-end computers.
