    This new version is really great, and well worth the wait. The speed and GUI have been improved a lot, and the addition of scaling is very welcome.

    The only problem I've had so far is that with some games, the RAM expansion (yes, it works with a 3 in 1) will make it run too fast on startup, and you have to remove it for the game to boot. For example, DKC2.

    Nevertheless, fantastic work Archeide!

    Will it work with a Supercard miniSD's built-in RAM?

    I don't have time to test it right now.

    Nice, didn't expect an update anytime soon.

    Are any of the sound problems fixed? I'll check myself when I have the time but I just wanna know in advance.

    From my playing of it, the sound engine seems the same.

    Its pretty good so far, but I can't get Chrono Trigger to run very good.
    It works but there are alot of major graphical glitches that weren't present in the previous version :'( . I'm thinking its just my configuration.


    Besides that everything else I tried ran almost perfect (with the exception of Donkey Kong Country 2, which froze after the file select screen).

    Super Street Fighter 2 - All stages so far worked perfect, even Blanka's.
    Mega Man X - Still has minor sound problems but works just fine.
    Rockman & Forte - Again, minor sound problems but playable.
    Gundam Wing Endless Duel - With the exception of the result screen in 'Trial Mode' everything is nearly perfect.
    Super Castlevania IV - Same minor problems as before but perfectly playable.

    I'm really impressed with the update. The GUI makes everything alot easier to understand. I'll try out more games later today.


    EDIT: Shouldn't this be posted in User Submitted News? Just wondering [​IMG]

    What does the added ram support do? Does is improve game speed, compatibility, or glitchyness?


    I really like the new interface, don't need to take out my stylus to save state, just tap the big button with my thumb and press "A". The one element it really needs to be perfect is the black screen effect like NesDS.

    I found it runs great if you open up the .cfg file (I use DSOrganize to do that) and look for the Street Fighter 2 entry, and change "Street Fighter 2" to whatever your SSF2 rom is named. Also, in the "options" menu, set Yscroll to +24, Speed to "Normal Speed" and hacks to "Interrupt Hacks".

    I hope there is another update soon, because the BG settings menu isn't functioning for me, which makes it impossible for me to fix the BG unless I constantly edit the .cfg text. I guess it's just a problem with my card (R4), since I'm the only one who has mentioned this issue, and I don't see how everyone could have that problem and not notice it.

    >.< I have this problem as well.. The GFX/BG Config is glitchy and it screws up when you try to configure to layers/sprites.

    I downgraded for this reason. [​IMG]

    hopefully we will get close to 100% emulation someday... *crossing fingers* If not possible for snes, atleast for nes.

    Tried this release yesterday, and it feels really fast. Someone should make a settings database, or maybe the creator could make one and implement wifi updating...

    I'm pretty sure nesDS has 100% Compatibility.

    Or just 99%? I tried 190 games and they all work. [​IMG]

    Are there any settings to get Final Fantasy V and VI running well? There are a lot of glitches in them right now and I have fiddled around a bit but has anyone had some success?

    Thanks a lot

    no,
    try Ninja Gaidens and Turtles (beside 2nd one), you see malfunctions.
    BTW, one of best homebrews ever.
