    DCemu have reported a hitherto unknown Japanese developer has been releasing nesterDS+ (a few of you may remember the original nester port in nesterDS http://www.telefragged.com/thefatal/index....t=inc_si_ds.htm )

    Usual mangled machine translation:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Play is a bit sluggish but it is certainly playable, I have yet to try many games however.

    I have played around with it bit. It seems to support games that NesDS does not, but it is slow and the sound is not as good. This is worth following but I think NesDS is still more refined and useable.

    It seems to be the same as before, just with DLDI support and save support. Speed is about the same as before, requiring frameskip to maintain full speed, but the DLDI support is a welcome addition nonetheless.

    Since it uses a software-based renderer it should be able to run titles that look mangled in NES DS.

    Nothing can ever be as good as NesDS.

    Rewind FTW!

    It's the first time I've seen that feature in an emulator.

    PocketNES perhaps? It has actually been improved while NesDS has stayed roughly the same since it forked off. Not to say NesDS is bad, but I miss Punchout.

    nesDS needs properly made touchscreen support for the menus because they are terribly off. Anyways, that's offtopic...

    On Topic: Only DLDI support added? Nothing to see here folks... [​IMG]

    It uses a software-based renderer that's more accurate graphically and more compatible but is much slower as a result, requiring frameskip to maintain full speed.
