    I wasn't exactly sure where to post this, but I thought that this would be the most appropriate section. I was wondering how to take screenshots, or record movies, of gameplay. I looked online and did several google searches, but no results. I've also tried using some emulators to run the ROM(Super Robot Taisen W), but it doesn't work properly. So, is there any way to do this on the DS?

    You can connect the DS to the TV and get a direct-feed from the TV but you need a special device for that, and I don't think you can simply buy one of those. I've seen one closely before. It's like a blue box, and it has a cable that's shaped like a Nintendo DS cartige on the end. You connect the cable to the DS's Slot 1 and put the game into the blue box thingy. It's kinda weird but that's how it works.

    So it isn't a possibility?

    CycloDS EVO will have screen shot support within the next few firmware updates.

    Well... I guess if that works, I'll buy one. But is the R4 team planning on having their R4DS take screenshots or did I miss something?
