NesterDS v0.1 Released!

246_2

Rich Whitehouse has released a NesterJ NES emulator port for the Nintendo DS. In this new release, Rich writes about it:

“This is a DS port of Nester. As you might've guessed. There are a ton of issues, and
it still bothers me that I'm storing the NES ROM over in ewram. I need to look into
that gbfs stuff apparently. There is no sound (the APU stuff is hooked up and runs
fine on the DS, it just needs the DS to actually do something with the output), but
the games I've tried run ok speed-wise. There is some "scanline"-type rendering
optimizaton in place because that's all still very slow and I haven't taken
advantage of any DS-specific hardware features to speed it up.

To use the thing, you can use the crappy primitive ROM insertion tool included in the
archive to put in the NES ROM of your choice. Currently only one ROM at a time is
supported. If I ever stop being lazy and load ROM files from image ROM like I should
be doing, that will be changing.”
