    I'm trying to read up on DS programming, and have a basic understanding.

    A few questions I have for people who know what they are doing;

    Can I use Visual Studio 2008 (has C++ and C#) to help write out (and debug) DS programs.

    Are there any good programs that help with writing DS apps/games other than Game Weaver and XtenDS (think they are pretty much the same thing)

    How do I compile the code to run on my DS?

    Thanks alot! There aren't alot of resources out there for programming on the DS.

    yes you can use Visual Studio [​IMG]

    And to compile code for the DS, you need devkitARM; http://www.devkitpro.org/

    note: DS programming is really low level so you probably need alot of tutorials also [​IMG]

    Just use Palib ^^ There is a very handy wiki... And by looking in the Palib examples, it's very ease to learn too [​IMG]

    PA_Lib won't help you with programming in the long run. Then again, the DS isn't a great platform to begin on anyway.

    Yes, that's right.
    I already knew some programming, cause I learned a little JAVA at school.
    So.. actually you're right...

    Game Weaver? I have never heard of that one. Is it like Game Maker, but for making NDS homebrew, or is it like devkitPRO/devkitARM?
