    Hey,

    This is my first post, so please don't be too harsh.

    I ordered an R4 revolution from zeroshipping.com around a month ago, and it arrived yesterday. I was able to figure everything out, and get an NES emulator and some roms on there (don't worry, I have 500+ NES games, and didn't download anything I didn't own).
    I'm wondering, what exactly can I do with this card, other than playing games? What other features/programs can now be used on my ds? I've read that you can use your DS as an Ipod with the R4, which is pretty sweet.
    Is it possible to have an SNES emulator and play SNES games on it as well? Again, I will only be downloading roms of SNES games that I already have, as I have a relatively large collection of SNES games as well.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    first of all welcome to gbatemp
    the r4 has moonshell integrated which can read music and videos(in dpg format)
    the other programs are named homebrew you can use them for plenty of things
    you can find some essentials in the nds homebrew section http://gbatemp.net/t208593-essentials-homebrew

    For SNES emulation you can look up SNEmulDS, it wil work, but not every game (at least on my M3i0). If you are talking about an ipod-like mediaplayer you are probably refering to LMP (lick's media player). You can download it on Filetrip or google it. There are tons of homebrew available, so you should check some sticky homebrew topics.

    First off, I hope you used Wood R4 instead of the original R4.
    There is an iPod classic emulator somewhere that will run on the DS. If you use Moonshell, you can also play videos that have been converted to the .dpg format.

    Thanks for all the quick replies. You guys freaking rule! I'll be checking out the homebrew thread, and trying out quite a few of those different programs. Keep the comments/help coming. [​IMG]

    You can also use Colors to turn your DS into an art studio [​IMG]
