    Flash/XML Based Compatibility List

    In case you don't know there has been a lot of work happening in the DS Emulation Fourm on emulator compatibility with three emulators in particular (iDeaS, DeSmuME & No$GBA).

    Well I have gone and made the effort off creating a Flash/XML based database that has many useful options such as searching and ordering of list data. Though it is still a WIP, it has very much progressed and is really easy to use.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE:
    This site and compatibility database REQUIRES the Flash 8 Web Browser Plugin. And at the moment I don't think it works on Linux Operating Systems. But I do not have Linux so somebody may need to verify this with me. Also your browsers may come up with security warnings (as I quickly found out) or may in deed block it completely (particularily with embeded URLs) but there is no bugs or spyware or anything, it's just Microsoft & Macromedia being paranoid!! LOL

    This is my site...

    How about putting the whole compatibility list online somewhere in database, so you could show only playable games, or even add info about other emulators compatibility and compare them all in one page? Anyone up for a bit of PHP programming? Ability from reliable users to add info to database would speed things up.

    I'm very, very, sorry. I was unaware of that.
    I knew it had Enasta but I thought it was a legal emulator. >.<

    -Sorry again

    In reply to diablow's message.
    Actually I was already planning something like that, ever heard of XML??
    Well I'm a Flash/Actionscript wiz (or at least good enough for now) and I've been contstructing a Compatibility List that uses XML.
    What'll be real good about it is that it would be extremely easy to update without even having rewrite any code, plus I'm writing it so that the basic body would be reusable to for any Emulator, any console. God I love flash!!
    Here's a little screenshot of it so far, (for now it is for iDeaS) this is what a days work looks like.

    I haven't got any search functions coded yet, but I'm getting to it. And before anyone asks, the reason why I did something like this, is for practise. Cos this kind of Actionscript Code is for databases and with a database, you need information to fill it. So since this compatibility list has been going so nicely, why not use it as a database??
    Tell me what you think!!

    Good idea, I've never even thought of using flash as frontend to database. How about putting colored dot (colorcode for playable, working etc.) in front of game title in list, so it would be easy to spot playable games. Showing only one category at a time would also be an option.
    Just keep it simple and good luck!
