    Ah right, thanks [​IMG]

    Any idea how to get DS games to run on it? It comes up with "Rom Crashed - Fatal error" every time

    You need roms with encrypted header and the bios files so that the emulator can actually run nds games... only tried pokemon diamond but it freezes up on the title screen.

    encrypted header??? WTF? BIOS files??? WTF?
    explain explain explain plz.
    I'll try it and use clean roms. If it can use clean roms, then it can do what no flash cart can do, apparently. I think that they should use quick patching on the fly like most (or all) slot 1 flashcarts do under your nose. (I havent looked at that thread about the homebrew that can check if roms were patched lately)

    It uses encrypted roms (ie, the code that is actually on a manufactured ds cartridge) and requires the bioses to decrypt the roms. In other words, it actual emulates exactly how the ds handles the roms.

    The roms that the scene releases are already decrypted and the code can be executed directly.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    You also need firmware.bin for some games. This emulator is only one that shown ds menu like a real ds portable:
