    I saw the news on the SNES emulation and I was wondering if any of the NES emulators supported save states or save games for the M3 DS? I have ran nesDS a while back but was not able to save my zelda games.

    I download nesDS.nds from http://www.cs.utah.edu/~tew/nesDS/ but is is a .nds file. Is this safe or is it a possible bricker? The site is lacking in documention to say the least. If this is real how do I use it?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    nesDS is what I use. Just put it all in a folder with your roms and load it up and play

    Touch the bottom screen to get the menu and save states

    Just download the latest nesDS version from GBAtemp...

    It won't brick your DS. Just drag and drop nesDS.nds to your cart and then boot it up and play. [​IMG]

    ~Good luck.

    I can confirm NesDS as being totally safe. Tons of people use it all the time. It's totally legit.

    Yep, NesDS is great, although the touch screen interface is kind of bad.

    Yeah I downloaded it and it works great. I am glad I don't have to pack .nes files now and it can play them native.
