    Already up to version 0.4 the speed is full for a lot of games although some minor graphics corruption exists in some games, there is no sound and it lacks GBC compatibility.

    Roms are used using the standard DLDI patch and read off the card method.
    Press R on the menu to skip sections and L and R in game to open a new rom (the author has said this can cause errors however).

    Thanks to gx-mod for the news.

    I have only tested a few games so far (bomberman, yoda stories, megaman 2 (pictured above) and 3) but it is quite good (yoda stories has some corruption in the bottom section of the screen).
    I will try Zelda DX out shortly.

    There also appears to be no name for the project (some places call it tayst others consider it a follow up to its DSBoy heritage and the author as far as I can see has not named the project.

    Edit: Just tested out Zelda DX, appears fairly flawless so far (no text or enemy corruption).

    Its nice to see another one out there, even though it may not be the best but could have potential to have some nicer features once the main emulation is sorted.

    I'm a PSP guy, but I'm just getting interested in DS emulation. Seeing this makes me hopeful, but I guess there is a better one? - Lameboy? I'll look into it.

    Yeah, I'd look into Lameboy for the time being, which has sound support, GBC support, save support, full speed for most games, a "speed up button", and the ability to stretch the screen to fill up most of the DS's resolution.

    See http://wiki.pocketheaven.com/Lameboy for details.
