Default DS Flash

Do you think we will see DS flash carts and linkers? Some of my friends have been saying a DS flash cart is impossible, because nintendo blocked it...but of course, they don't know what the hell they are talking about, nor can the hypothesize as to how the Big N blocked them.

Are there any lockouts on the DS hardware that would prevent someone from making carts? Is there some technological drawback to the DS that makes flash cart linking impossible? Also, would some software be required to make ROMs display correctly on the 2 screens? Or would the DSHardware do that automatically.

Or is no one in the emu community interested in the DS? XD

Sorry i have so many questions, i am just really excited about the possibilty of writing games to my own carts. GBA was the first GB i bought a linker for, so i am excited to see what kinds of stuff will be done on the DS.

Maybe someone will write a PogoShell-esque application for the DS? With wifi capabilites? *faints at the thought.

I for one hopes this system never gets emulated and the games never get dumped. Emulation should be about reliving old classics not available anymore or arcade games you can't just go out and buy/play and not just a way out of paying for new games. I've started to buy games now instead of pirating them--maybe other people will do the same.

Do the old GBA flashcarts work with the DS?

Short answer: yes.
Long answer: Yes, the carts all work, although one or two need their plastic shells removed. Also, since some of the 'internal' flashers needed the Link port on the GBA, those won't work. You want an 'external' USB flasher.

But it's a good point to bring up. The DS has only been out for a couple of weeks and already people are looking for ways to pirate games?

WTF?!?

Like there is anything worth pirating right now in the first place. This is awesome hardware that could be used for so much more. Just think... mmmmm... touch screen porn game<img src=smilies/liefde.gif>!

I was looking at the screen shots of a certain japanese Medical Sim game for the DS I could not help but think of curtan sex scenes from certain bishoujo games and think this would be perfect for ports of them. But almost all ports of these games have been censored up for consoles and handheld. Just look at Pia Carrot 2.2 for GBC. Still if the companies pulled their perverbiale heads out of their asses for a change that could add extra boost in popularty to the system, and a few good games to boot. NEC seems to classicly been the only company to do so.

How would they work? DS carts are different size. (like an SD card and a compact flash card)

The DS has a slot for the GBA carts. [ T'was fun playing FFTA yesterday using my DS, actually. It looks so much nicer than it did on my 1st Gen GBA ]

I'd hope that at least initially....looking to emulate the DS is about being able to do it....not pirating games. I, for one, always thought that emulation of new systems was a good thing...pushing the limits of what people know, and pushing the envelope on what is "impossible".....like when the N64 was first emulated...that was big shit...b/c no one thougt it could happen....but lo and behold, UltraHLE was there. So, I hope that someone figures out how to emulate the DS, and gets demo ROM's to play....but it would be nice if a dump of the games could be prevented....but alas, im sure that'll be circumvented as well.
