NDeSmuMe  - DeSmuME DS Emulator MOD

desmumeNDeSmuMe is an unofficial DeSmuME release by Normmatt. And you thought the name DeSmuME was already complicated. What's new in nDeSmuME: Quoting NDS from GBArl: "I have improved of the bug in the version the 0.3.3 stable of the DeSmuMe having carried it to the version 0.3.6 (improvements brings to you from version 0.3.4 obviously not are here). Arrived to the version the 0.5.0 firm plan. After that many have advised me to modify the name to the emulator in order not to create confusion I have decided to call it NDeSmuMe. Download NDeSmuME

Rockmangames : Do you think you will have success emulating NDS saving?
Normmatt: It's not weather I'm able to implement it or not its that emulating it would open the emulation scene to lots of warezers wanting to play popular nds games which i think they should buy. saving will eventually emulated but only when the nds goes out of fashion a little as its a good handheld and people should actually buy it instead of emulating it.

About Original DeSmuME

desmumeDeSmuME is a freeware emulator for the Nintendo DS created by YopYop156. DeSmuME is also known as YopYop DS is written in C++ for Microsoft Windows and can play Nintendo DS homebrew and commercial nds roms. The emulator its self is in French (with user translations to English and other languages). But even French version of DeSmuME is easy to navigate through menus as it has a similar users interface to DSemu. It supports many homebrew nds rom demoes as well as a handful of Wireless Multiboot demo nds roms. DeSmuME is also able to emulate some of the commercial nds rom titles which other DS Emulators like iDeaS and Dualis aren't capable of doing so.

desmumeNormmatt has coded a new unofficial version of DeSmuME. Build Version 0.3.4 from 04/24/2006 adds Save state and preliminary SRAM save support to nds roms emulation. Sorry - no sound yet. To get the latest files go to download section.
