DeSmuME 0.9 released!

This new release is the product of hundreds of new code improvements: We now have an almost 100% reworked 3D core, which is shared amongst all ports for the first time, and have better save states. Compatibility has been improved across the board. The huge number of reworked systems and small fixes is noticeable on some games and homebrew games are running better–or even running at all for the first time. And this work has not stopped, so stay tuned for what’s coming in the future!

    Guys … even Paws and claws pet resort is working (well technically ….the grahics are still pretty screwed up) ….. just thought i would post that so someone could update the compatibility list

  7. Blahboy says:

    OH … and so does Animal Crossing …. plays amaaaazing.!!!

  8. shash says:

    alvin: Then you can’t use the emulator as you acquired the games from an illegal source. Please avoid commenting here further or on the forums, as you won’t get help.

    Also important for anyone helping him, as everything related will get deleted/marked as spam so we don’t see that crap again.

    Wow! This is so great. DeSemuME became the best NDS emu on Linux.

    Congrats! What a great release! The colors and the sound, and then opensource, too. Full admiration. All credits!

    First time ever I use a ds emulator, but I’m very impressed so far! Just tried playing the first PW game – runs very smoothly and with minimal cpu usage. I’ve got a 4 year old P4 3.6 too, but that didn’t seem to cause any probs either. Great program!

  14. akbo says:

    lol i can play revenant wings smoothly

  15. DiZASTER says:

    Greta work, can hardly wait for the next release ^^

  16. Guest says:

    When will this be available to download?

  17. shash says:

    Guest: It already is, on the main page the downloads link on the tab has everything you need.

  18. SoulZephyr766 says:

    Please make DeSmuME more compatible with Homebrew Games and of course with more on commercial games and don’t just use OpenGL as the 3D use something else like, DirectDraw, D3D, GDI and more functions like on Dualis or something, but it’s yet one of the best and existing DS emulators I have ever seen, keep it up!!!

  19. hrach says:

    Thanks il will use this software for execution Fils nds

  20. shash says:

    SoulZephyr766: Any good reason to avoid using openGL? Because it’s perfect for everything a DS emulator could need.

  21. Heavylink says:

    Nice guys! i don’t check that regularly but when i see improvements its always a good day =)

    Looking forward to the next update ^^. Keep up the good work! =D

    0.9 cheers for the DESmuMe team!

  22. patsfan says:

    I must be doing something wrong everytime i try to open a rom it wont show up. it is a .nds but it still doeswnt come up for some reason. Any ideas?

  23. shash says:

    patsfan: Which game? Keep in mind that the emulator isn’t 100% compatible.

  24. fmoya says:

    I find desmume the best free emulator available for homebrew development. But devkitpro r24 is using something not yet emulated.

    Devkitpro r23 worked great on desmume. Examples in nds-examples were running as expected.

    Now, libnds as shipped with devkitpro r24 stopped working on desmume. I thought it had to do with the builtin dswifi support in new releases of default-arm7. But I reduced the arm7 program to the minimal expression ant it still fails to communicate touch screen events to the ARM9. Nocash emulator works.

    Any idea on what is missing?

  25. tommytsai says:

    Does a subvirsion can be download at this site?

  26. fmoya says:

    I found that desmume 0.8 is able to run the nds-examples in devkitpro r24 but desmume 0.9 fails to communicate data through the FIFO between the arm7 and the arm9. E.g. touchscreen does not work (try templates/arm9 o templates/combined).

    Any ideas?

  27. CrazyMax says:

    fmoya: bug with IPC FIFO (eg. touchscreen in devkitpro) fixed in SVN rev. 1432 (12 Jan 2009)

  28. shash says:

    tommystai: No, just wait for the next version, as everyone else. Also, you’re getting seriously annoying, grow up a bit.

  29. fmoya says:

    CrazyMax: Thank you so much!

  31. Juliana says:

    Where is the link?? I don’t find it…. in the SourceForge

  32. shash says:

    Juliana: It’s here, on the main page, or on the downloads section of sourceforge.

  33. DiZASTER says:

    Version 0.9.1 nice ^^ Great work (:

    I think a filter like “Super Eagle” or
    somehing wouldn’t be bad in on of
    the next releases (:

  34. toti says:

    im so happy to see a new version of this emulator keep working hard and i hope a much better new version
    congratulations from chile

  35. silentbobus says:

    I am happy to see another emulator that is approaching the speed and compatibility that NO$GBA had before it was discontinued. There’s only one DS game that I would like to play on an emulator, and that game is Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. The current version of Desmume actually does a better version than the old NO$GBA and with a few more tweaks it looks like it will run as well on my computer as on the DS itself… keep up the good work!
