Working Nintendo DS Emulator that Supports Official, Homebrew and Wireless Multiboot NDS Roms!
DeSmuME (formerly known as YopYop DS) is an open source (written in C++) freeware Nintendo DS emulator for Linux, Mac OS and Windows. Its name is derived from emu which is short for emulator, DS and ME.
DeSmuME is the first Nintendo DS emulator able to run Nintendo DS homebrew and commercial games at a playable level.// History and Development //
The original emulator itself was in French (with user translations to English, German and other languages). But even French version of DeSmuME is easy to navigate through menus as it has a similar users interface to DSemu.
YopYop156 stopped development on DeSmuME at version 0.3.3 due to a change of laws regarding emulation in France. However, the source code was released.
On April 18th 2010, it was reported by one of the contributors that work on Wi-Fi has reached a milestone. It’s been confirmed Mario Kart DS is possible to link and Worms: Open Warfare 2 can use Wi-Fi to play, albeit limited, multiplayer for 1 round.// General Features //
DeSmuME supports many homebrew Nintendo DS rom demos, as well as a handful of Wireless Multiboot demo roms. It is also able to emulate some of the commercial Nintendo DS rom titles which other DS game Emulators like DSemu, iDeaS and DualiS aren’t capable of emulating.
DeSmuME supports save states, the ability to increase the size of the screen and it supports filters to improve image quality. DeSmuME also supports microphone use on Windows and Linux ports, as well as direct video and audio recording. The emulator also features a built-in movie recorder.Unofficial Ports:
DeSmuME has also been ported to other systems, including a proof of concept port to the PlayStation Portable. That port has been called “useless” because the PSP does not have a touchscreen, and lacks the processing power to emulate games at full speed.
Despite these shortcomings, it does show that successfully running Nintendo DS software on a PSP is possible.// Default Controls //
