Q: I tried a couple of the working roms
on it and I realized that none of them had sound. I just wanted to know why,
and if there is anyway I can fix it?
A: At this time DeSmuME DOES NOT emulate sound for the Nintendo DS games. That is one of the things that you will see added in the future releases of the emulator.
Q: Is DeSmuME.com the official website for this DeSmuME DS Emulator?
A: NO - official website is located at a free web host in france at yopyop156.ifrance.com but it has been closed after YopYop decided that he will not continue developing DeSmuME. But don't worry other have picked up where he left off.
Q: Why did you make this website?
A1: To spread the good news that there is a new working NDS emulator. A2: To make sure that IF ifrance.com decides to delete the official site there will be a backup. A3: To provide support for DeSmuME in English as opposed to French. A4: Because I like DeSmuME and thought it would be useful if it had a .com domain
A: DeSmuME is a new Nintendo DS emulator and the name is a play of words - DS Emu + ME (like FlashMe - firmware hack and PassMe mod-chip for DS)
The name DeSmuME derives from the popular use of ME in Nintendo DS products by homebrew developers. So DeSmuME would equal DSemuMe. Other popular uses of ME include: LoadMe - a generic patcher for commercial DS roms that works with any GBA Flash Card, PassMe - "mod-chip" using which takes authentication from an original DS card an allows execution of unauthenticated DS rom code from the GBA cartridge slot / GBA flash card. FlashMe - a hacked firmware for DS that allows you to start code in DS mode from a flash card in the GBA slot. WifiMe - are a set of a custom drivers and software by FireFly for RALink based wireless network cards enabling to boot homebrew code on DS via Nintendo Wireless Multiboot method.
Q: Is multiplayer supported
A: No - Ni-Fi and Wi-Fi gaming is not sported at this time.
Q: Is DeSmuME the only working DS Emulator?
A: No - there is also Ensata (made by Nintendo), DualiS, iDeaS and DSemu. Read about al of them at NDSemulator.com
