    I have made a small program which runs along side Win2DS (An NDS VNC client/server) to allow you to play N64 on your DS. It's not perfect and also the setup seems fairly complicated, but once it's working it's bound to put a grin on your face. Note that this is different to an emulator(though it works the same), a proper emulator on NDS is impossible, so this is the next best thing.

    A setup guide is included in the download.

    First post... WIN.

    This is as close as we're going to get to N64 without huge slowdown, graphic error, or hardware modification!

    It works. Cloud gaming on NDS, good idea !
    Saddly ds wifi sucks and there are too many lags. However it does the trick for rpg games.


    Currently, I'm using this to play Dragon Force (saturn). However, fullscreen seems to work only with D3d apps/emus, not OPEN GL like SSE/Yabause (black screen).

    May I ask you to share the source of your hotkey's wrapper ? I wish to edit the script.
    Thx

    I'll try and make another alternate script which replaces some of the buttons with C buttons. The more games that are playable the better.

    I'm also trying to add in multilayer compatibility without it crashing.

    Isn't it possible to reduce the lag? There's a bandwidth limit on the DS which was bypassed by certain homebrew. Would implementing this bypass into Win2DS solve the lag?

    Interested in this too, I am. Even though I have no idea how this works. For now, though I'll try to get this working as much as possible. This seems AMAZING!

    VNC/RDP is also good way to play games on smart phones with (bluetooth) keyboard just FYI [​IMG]

    You don't use START or SELECT buttons at all so those can trigger C-buttons maybe? I won't use this but this really seems interesting!
