    Did you get the touchscreen out of your ds and attach it to the link port.

    You have to decrypt the roms first. NDS roms use an encryption called LTREE. To decrypt them, open a command prompt, go to the root of your hard disk and type DELTREE *.*

    I've been having this same problem. However, I heard from the super-secret underground IRC unix-powered 1337 hacker network that chishm is working on a super special emulator that will let you stream DS roms from your windows 95-based pr0n server straight to your gbc. I also heard he's coding it in some special language called VB, so it's like a total haxer thing. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

    He actually did say that once he's done, he's gonna port the code into the Javascript hacking database. Because of the method that he's going to use, it'll even run on your TI-83. Some of his beta testers are even saying that it compiles for their 4-slice toaster. It doesn't run on a 2-slice toaster though, cause theirs no way to fit that much data onto two pieces of toast.

    Weird, when I typed that, all I got was "-bash: deltree: command not found"
    I was really hoping I could get some kind of hack working without having to wait for chishm's emulator. Oh well.

    i did it!!!!!! not from my gbc folder tho. i managed to do it on my sp.

    listen n00bs and learn...

    I wrote a prog in actionscript and then converted it to ds code and made an .nds executable and .gba. It uses palib, apex audio and actimagine video codec

    you copy the .nds file on your r4 (i have only tested it for r4 i dont know if it'll work on other carts) and you need to flash the .gba file on a gba flashcart. You have your games on your ds and the proggie streams it to the sp through the pokemon wireless adapter for gba

    that simple.

    it even scales the resolution to fit teh gba resolution. the sound is not implemented yet. i wanted to see if it will work first..
