    Hello.

    I'm delighted to find that DSOrganize supports NSF (and plays them very well), but the music stops playing when the DS goes into sleep mode, making it 25% as useful as it could be. Apparently, DragonMinded has completely given up on the project, and it doesn't look like his site is coming back any time soon =/ I'm not opposed to compiling a custom version, but I'd require a bit of assistance. Having little knowledge of the inner workings of the DS, I'm not even sure if it's possible to leave the sound/inputs running in sleep mode...the closest workaround I can think of is making a function for the music players that turns off the backlights instead of calling hardware sleep (which isn't exactly the same, but will at least lower power consumption a bit, and allow the DS to go back into my pocket).

    Or if anybody knows of any alternative utilities, that's cool too. I tried HVCA, but it's cumbersome and the sound emulation isn't very accurate at all...SimpleNSF was even worse, it wouldn't even play the files.

    You have tried plugging in headphones before determining that "the music stops playing" right? [​IMG]

    (it's a powersaving feature, ironically enough)
