    melonDS 0.1 released

    melonDS the new opensource Nintendo DS emulator by StapleButter has been released.

    Here's the release notes

    Features

    * almost-complete 2D graphics
    * 3D graphics (software renderer) with texturing, alphablending, lighting
    * input: keyboard and joystick, touchscreen
    * backup memory
    * booting from the BIOS
    * resizable video output window, preserving aspect ratio of individual screens

    How to use

    melonDS requires BIOS/firmware dumps from a DS. You can dump them with the following dumper.



    The files must be placed in the same directory as the melonDS executable, as follows:

    * bios7.bin -- ARM7 BIOS, 16KB
    * bios9.bin -- ARM9 BIOS, 4KB
    * firmware.bin -- firmware, 256KB or 512KB

    Note: the DS-mode firmware in the 3DS isn't bootable. It only contains the bare minimum required to run DS games. Be sure to enable direct game boot when using a firmware dump from a 3DS.

    Settings

    Emulation: settings related to emulation. For now it lets you enable direct game boot (directly runs the game instead of going through the firmware).

    Input: allows you to configure keyboard and joystick input. You can change a mapping by clicking the corresponding entry, then pressing a keyboard key or joystick button. For now, joystick input uses the first joystick available if multiple joysticks are plugged.
