    I proudly present my first real project: Neko DS.

    Neko DS (Neko being the Japanese word for cat) is a port of an old PC application back from the 80's. When run, you would have a cat on your screen who would chase your mouse cursor around, scratch on the screen, take a nap and various other stuff.

    Since this application has always been very close to my heart, I decided to try and port this to the DS.

    This is only a very simple beginning of what I intend to end of with, but fully functional none the less. In the future I want to have the sprites incorporated into the NDS via EFS, have the user being able to choose between different Nekos from EFS and FAT, and perhaps as a last update be able to have several Nekos running around on the screen.

    I hope you will enjoy this application as much as I have over the years.

    Code:

    Pretty nice. I'd like to see you work more on it.

    If it's what I'm thinking of, its called felix. It's a little cat that'll run around your screen and stuff, and stand ontop of windows. [​IMG]

    Never heard of Felix. But no, the original is just called Neko.

    Also, I just uploaded a new version, that takes care of a bug that was reported and which doesn't have the Neo Geo splash. I would after all like to be in the competition after all this work. [​IMG]
