    Hello all,

    Does anybody know if there's a programming library/driver for DS homebrew development that allows you to utilize the DS Rumble pack?

    If no one knows of any, does anybody know how/want to create such a library/driver?

    The main reason I ask is because this application could utilize it:

    DSiP is a VoIP phone app for the DS, if you're unfamiliar.

    I also think it may benefit other home brew titles as well.

    Any response would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I was under the impression rumble was handled by reading/writing to the GBA cart address space (can't remember which). There is a detection routine, isRumbleInserted(), but it apparently fails on DSLites.

    Also, I would advise you to use the rumble-unlocking code for the EZFlash 3-in-1 expansion in your application, as more and more people seem to be using this in tandem with a Slot 1 device.
