    Unofficial G6 Fatlib brings new homebrew to G6!

    Scummvm DS & DSdoom compiled for G6










    An unofficial G6 Fatlib has been developed by gbadev.org member Puyo which increases G6 homebrew compatibility.



    This new Fatlib has already been compiled into unofficial versions of Scummvm DS and DSDoom by another member by the name of theli; allowing the hombrew to run on the G6. Write capabilities have so far not yet been written, however ScummvmDS both runs and saves fine on the G6 using this Fatlib.



    For more information and downloads check out the thread at gbadev.org.

    I'm really enjoying the scummvm DS compiled for G6 [​IMG] Woot, Monkey Island 2 works with music now and finally no more 32MB maximum size!

    Many thanks to Puyo and theli

    I don't get it, I swore I've ran Scumm DS on my G6 before? Monkey Island 1 ran fine I think.

    yes but the game size was limited to 32mb... so you could not play most of the games.

    The thing is, THEY HAVEN'T GOT WRITE SUPPORT YET.
    This just shows how much the G6/M3 team care about the homebrew community: they let homebrew coders do the work.

    Is there any chance of this being implemented properly into a G6 update? I'm not sure I like the idea of having to put this on everytime the software is updated or whatever.

    Cheers

    Ok, im maybe a little slow, but what does this mean to the homebrew secne? You state better combatability, but what does it mean in action? Also I cant really get ScummVMDS to save on my Supercard lite+SuperKey, anyone know how to fix it? =)

    Basically, it means that a homebrew program can read other files from the G6. Up until now data was only accessible if it was packed into the same file.

    Shareware doom 1.8 .wad file

    It's just not a G6 news thread unless somebody asks if Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam works.

    VERY cool indeed - homebrew was my main worry with my G6 (otherwise cool).

    Can't wait to see the new stuff that comes..
