    The preview-alpha version of SNEmulDS 0.6 is now available for all the brave testers around the world!

    The GUI artworks are not ready, so you have a "naked" and not very pretty GUI, but at least, you have the multi languages support! So you can check if your language is correct.
    Here is the list of available languages : Japanese (Katakana only), English, French, German, Italian, Spanish,
    Portuguese, Catalan, Polish, Dutch, Danish (those last five are made available by editing the snemul.cfg file).

    Various External RAM packages can be used to improve large rom emulation : Supercard (32MB), M3 (32MB), Opera (8MB), EZ3/4/3-in-1 (8-16MB), G6 (32MB).
    There may be some problems with the external RAM library when lanching snemulds from slot2. Please tell me.

    Scaling support has three modes :
    - Full screen : nearly like snezzids
    - Half scaling : "smart" scaling, only reduce half the backgrounds, and doesn't squish sprites. It looks quite fine in games.
    - No scaling : no scaling at all, classic SNEmulDS mode, still default

    Here is the complete list of changes compated to 0.5 beta:

    - New GUI using framebuffer for sub screen
    - Better human interface, improved file selector (alphabetical sorted), buttons, check boxes, multi choose zones, etc.
    - New GUI supports joypad (joypad is not supported when emulator is running however).
    - Multi language support (more than 10 supported, including katakan japanese !)
    - Memory pak support (Opera RAM, Slot 2 card reader, etc. using libram) with paging or with large ROM mapping
    - Scaling with pseudo bi-linear filtering and sprites squishing : full screen scaling (like snezzids), half scaling (half scaled and without sprites squishing), and no scaling (classic snemulds mode)
    - Autiomatic SRAM saving when needed
    - Some other bugfixes and improvements in GUI

    How are the DKC games on this? Also do the mario games from Mario all stars run fine? I'd love to play the SNES remake of the first SMB on my DS.

    Yes it does, just tried it.

    To the dev; any chance of fixing the save state freezing every now and then on certain games (e.g. DKC)?

    Kirby 3 is not working, nor is SD3, Romancing Saga 3, or mario RPG.

    I got metroid and mario Kart to work

    Are you sure about that? Did you have the 3-in-1 expansion pack slot-in by any chance? I just did a test on DKC 1, 2 and 3 with the 3-in-1 and it just freezes after loading the game. But without it, the game boots and runs fine.

    Metroid has some background layer issues in some screens, so far in the first ridley fight is the most noticable

    Yeah, I am sure. My 3-in-1 never leaves my DSL (no need, see). Says it's using External RAM on loading (the game - DKC). [​IMG]
