    From all the reading I've done looking up the same question I agree that it's the nesDS as well.

    Yeah, nesDS. I'm using an old version before it had savestates (rewind/fast-forward only), and it still works perfectly for my purposes.

    Yeah, the touchscreen code has always been screwed up. Interestingly enough, I read a report of the same file being used on two different homebrew devices with the touchscreen being accurate on one and horribly inaccurate on the other.

    On my Supercard SD, the latest version from the official site is accurate enough for my purposes.

    There are a few other NES for DS Emulators, but none of them stand above (or near) nesDS.

    To add to MisterNero some links are on the following page for the curious.
    http://ezflash.sosuke.com/wiki/index.php?title=NES

    In some cases though the GBA code emus of pocketnes (try kuwanger's and dwedit's mods) and HVCA (still updated every few months) also provide a good level of competition (links in page above).

    Download nesDS.nds. DLDI patch nesDS.nds if necessary. Copy nesDS.nds to your card. Copy .nes games to your card. Launch nesDS.nds.

    Very easy. There IS a method of packaging the games into the *.nds file itself, but this is usually not necessary.

    If it gives you a DLDI error, then you didn't patch it with DLDI, which is why it can't access your filesystem. Some cards auto-patch, but you never said what device you were using so I can't tell if yours does or not.

    Info on DLDI patching can be found at the DLDI wiki - http://dldi.drunkencoders.com

    I recommend using DLDIrc for patching, personally.

    nesDS, but the touchscreen is messed up. I've messed up save states by clicking on load instead and vice versa one too many times, which is really annoying.
    It would've been gold if save states could've been handled by the regular controls, like in jEnesisDS.

    Download DLDIrc. Install DLDIrc. Right-click nesDS.nds and choose the patching option. Then follow the rest of the steps from before.
