I've found this interesting homebrew and I want to know how can I compile it.

Thanks in advance.


PS. The .nds file already in the zip doesen't work.

Wouldn't it be helpful to know what happened when you tried it? (Would you like someone to tell you "I tried to compile this and it didn't work" ?) Or maybe you could say where you got it from in the first place?
I've found it here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20111128053832/http://natrium42.com/blog/?&paged=2

And I tested a prototype and it works.Thats why I ask how can I compile it.

The .nds file inside I guess wasn't compiled corectly or something isn't working for me.

When it comes to thinks like this, you are for more likely to get a response if you provide some details. What exactly did you try? What happened when you tried it? Does it work in an emulator? Did you only try a flashcart?

I tried it on a my flashcard but it doesn't work.I have a proof that the .nds file isn't "good". I tried 2 animations: one provided by the author and the other one in the .zip file.The one provided by the author works but the one in the zip doesen't.If it helps I will put the animation that works here.

PS. The animation in the zip works but not how intended, like the animation is a triangle that transforms in a square a circle and again in a triangle, but when I try the animation on my DS is just a flickering triangle.

Then that is probably entirely as expected. It says right on the page that it "could be probably used for simple animations". You should see if the animation you are trying to play works in GPLflash on Linux. If someone made an open-source flash player 15 years ago that worked all the time, a lot more people would have been using it.

Yes I can't deny, you've got a point there, and I will totally gonna try the animation on GPLflash.But still i don't know how to compile it.
