Default Console Insest is naughty

Alrighty, Im prolly gonna get raped of all my pride for asking this but will it be possible to emulate a Snes on a DS? Cause if the specs allow it Im getting a DS. I figure a Card would be able to be created. OOOO!!! Does anyone know if it is possible to make a DS flash card? How similar is the game card from a GBA game card?

EHHHHHH?!?!?!!?!?!?<img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

DS Flash Cart has already been done. It is called the NeoFlash, and it lets you run DS code from a GBA cart inserted into the DS. As far as I know there are no SNES emulators for DS in development, but SNES Advance reportedly works fine on the DS.

Ok, it SHOULD be possible. I don't know for absolute certainty, but from what I've seen so far from commercial games and from the homebrew community I'm pretty sure it'll work just fine (and the control layout is PERFECT for it). At the very least it'll work way better than SNESadvance. It's going to help a lot with the fact that not only is the DS far more powerful, it also has sound hardware supporting 16 channels of sound. The higher resolution screen should help also.

As for a DS flash card, who knows. There are ways to run homebrew code though....I refer you to this post http://www.zophar.net/wwwthreads/sho...apsed&sb=5&o=0here</a> because luckily I made a great post on this with information on all the methods of running homebrew for the NDS that are currently out there. Heh, that way I don't have to type it all over again. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot away and I'll try my best to answer.

Actually, it's not a DS flash cart. It's a PassMe/GBA flash cart combo (you need a commercial DS game inserted into the so called 'Magic Key Technology', and the 'Magic Key' then jumps the point of execution for the code down to the GBA cart on boot when the NDS checks the header of the DS card, just like a PassMe...so it doesn't really use any NDS flash cart type technology). A real DS flash cart would probably be much much harder...the main thing being the encryption and what not as I understand it.<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by The 9th Sage on 06/07/05 09:29 PM.</FONT></P>

Hm, well, they do run, but the general consensus is that the NeoFlash software is hacking the ROM image of the NDS card so it can run from the GBA cart. You see, if it wasn't hacked, it would still be trying to load art, music, whatever, from the NDS card slot instead of the GBA slot. Technically this SHOULD work with any of the *Me stuff (and in fact does) but mostly the only people who are doing this 'automatic hacking' are the NeoFlash people....and really, it's rather pointless.

All it is is piracy since there is no easy way to dump your own ROMs from NDS cards that you own.

Besides, you can get something similar to that, like a PassMe/GBA flash cart combo for far cheaper than they are charging.<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by The 9th Sage on 06/07/05 09:34 PM.</FONT></P>

Well, in a manner of speaking. <img src=smilies/laff.gif>

I mean really, they are charging if I remember right at least 150 bucks for something you can get for around 100 altogether.

And their USB Loader thing for dumping NDS carts (granted I don't know as much as some but I do know it's not as easy as just copying 1 for 1 from a GBA cart to your PC)...good luck with that. It almost sounds to me like they don't know how the NDS works, this is of course just supporting the 'ripping others off' theory...anyone with the electronics knowledge could use the feely available plans for a PassMe and build one. If they made it right they wouldn't have to understand exactly how the DS works.

It kind of pisses me of how they're sucking up to the homebrewers too.

its a passme and an XG1 128mbit card iirc. there is a whole topic on this, on the pocket heaven forums. all it is is rebranded equipment. quite a dirty trick. i hope the creator cant sleep at night because of what he did.
