    Yes anyone can if wish to :) , and I have, although Modified version below makes it no longer the Original version.

    Martin did not seams to mind, might be handy for his next version.

    I did some testing on auto encrypt for his as you see me on credits .

    "- nds/boot: init [27FFC40]=0001 (for newer games) (thanks Exophase and drwhojan)"

    0001 in high RAM boots latest games Without, "ROM image has crashed message" , you will no longer get this and auto encrypt help with DSI enhanced games.

    he might not mind that you're modifying his software, but I doubt he'd be cool with you distributing his software for free when he doesn't do so himself and is in dire need of money.
    if I were you, I'd only distribute a patch or something. packaging the whole executable like that just seems like a shitty thing to do.

    Maybe you should distribute a IPS patch instead.

    and yet on the same board you have http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=97447
    and an easy solution to your problem would be to include the patching software...

    it kind of is though; you're basically arguing that distributing a translated ROM is legal because it was modified.


    not saying you're lying but if you don't point to a post of martin saying it's cool for you to distribute his private donator-only software I'm going to have a hard time believing you.

    XDelta Patcher might me better .

    (Note) to all Original, Still freeze on pokemon black / white 2 after summery screen and rune factory a havest moon, The Modified Version video Rendering is arm9 and arm7 speed is Slown down a little bit, making it bypass and work and keep game at original speed, Unlike EX5 for no$zoomer .

    Code:
    Decompressed emu
     
    0x00057373 09 -> 08
    0x00057381 00 -> 01
     
    Hex Edtor in Virtual RAM
     
    0x00457773 09 -> 08
    0x00457781 00 -> 01
    

    And yet admin have done no think since http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=157822

    "it kind of is though; you're basically arguing that distributing a translated ROM is legal because it was modified."

    Emulator is not a ROM , have not translated any think, Slow down video rendering yes , making the bad games playable without EX5 from no$zoomer although that was crap as it slowed down the game play to, this fix dose not .

    yeah... that was an analogy, I'm well aware that an emu is not the same thing as a rom...
    and all I see in that post is that you posted your software on that board, not that martin approves of it.

    You can distribute a patch for 2.7a (paid version) or 2.7. I guess if you ask Martin's permission to post your modified version 2.7 (is there even one, or it was just 2.7a that you modified?) online, it should be no problem.

    Until then, you can ONLY link to patches.

    Yes I'll get onto making the patch, just my avast don't like the Original Emulators UPX v1.01 packer, when Emulator is repacked a new check sum happens , causing a faslse possive once again, so have to disable avast to do so.

    EDIT: Best I can do, added also to first post.
