DeSmuME 0.9.7 released!

These bits may seem a bit stale to those of you who have been watching our SVN, as they were made in November 2010. Sorry it took so long to get released. A lot of testing and laziness were involved.

This version brings with it the usual assortment of core, graphics, and frontend fixes. Compatibility improvements are numerous, but there is a long way to go still.

Please note that a super OSX buildmaster would be a welcome addition to our team, as it is not really our area of expertise and continually gets short-changed due to lack of attention…

* edit (04-feb-2011) – the NOSSE2 build is posted
* edit (06-feb-2011) – the NOSSE2 build is re-posted since the previous one was a total fail.
* edit (30-apr-2011) – the OSX build is posted

    Hey, I’ve been compiling your SVN versions with GTK on my Mac for months now. If you need help, maybe I can be of some assistance. I left my email in the mail field — feel free to contact me.

  5. venomlash says:

    Sounds cool! Any progress on figuring out WiFi/link support?

  6. Nut says:

    To all users without sse2: Upgrade your CPU! It’s that simple! Get something like Intel Core2Duo or I3/I5/I7.
    Also the sse2 build is faster than the nosse2 build.

  7. zeromus says:

    nut, are you on commission?

  8. Nut says:

    nah I just love to show off… it’s that simple!

  9. Shaoss says:

    er… i can’t run emulator DeSmuME.exe – DeSmuME_dev.exe i duble click .exe but it not show window for game Not run Not show

    so i can play with DeSmuME_nosse2.exe but it slow TwT

    Do you help me Plaese

    thankyou -w-b

  10. Nut says:

    There’s a previous commenter with the same name as me WTF//?
    About the nosse2…it’s suppose to be like that; use desmume.exe; if it crashes, then there’s really nothing you can do other than upgrade your CPU.

  11. The Critic says:

    when you completely close out the new system, all of the data is erased from your game, when you release the next one( if you do), please try and fix that

  12. zahev says:

    Finally, thx, i have been specting for the next version!! KEEP UP WITH THE GOOD WORK!!

  13. zeromus says:

    critic, its not a bug. it is user error. configure your paths properly.

  14. Happy says:

    I don’t know why, but the “Import Backup Memory” option isn’t working properly for some games (mostly in the case of older games), and for others it is taking a bit of time before the importing is successful.

  15. Nut says:

    Your site is finally up!
    Why your site is down for the last few days?

  16. Nut says:

    Also when I install DeSmuMe on Ubuntu 10.10 through Software Center, why it installed 0.9.6? It should install 0.9.7!

  17. zeromus says:

    no, it shouldnt install 0.9.7, unless whomever takes responsibility for the linux packaging does their job and updates things. i don’t know who that is and apparently neither do you.

  18. Steve says:

    Any word on the Mac OS X release?

    Better not be slackin :P

  19. Sami says:

    THIS IS THE BESTTTTTTT! Thanks guys!

  20. Steakface says:

    Great job with the new release! It just gets better and better…
    I was worried about the site. It was down for a few days! Glad to see it’s back up and nothing major happened.

  21. Nut says:

    I was worried about the site too, but glad that it’s back up and running.

  22. Nut says:

    Are Heartgold and Soulsilver still crashing?

  23. Nut says:

    I don’t know.
    Current tests showed that its not crashing, but it is not 100% free from crashes.

  24. daibouzu says:

    Glad to see there’s an update. As a Mac user, I’m really looking forward to the OSX 0.9.7 release. Thanks!!

  25. sora says:

    hurayyyyyyyyy, thank u very much ^^

  26. asnec says:

    incredible how to this day when trying this emulator on a old computer, that we see that no$gba is still faster than desmume, still a lot of work to do on optimization and i pretty much doubt you are doing the SSE2 optimizations in the right way, just see what dolphin achieved with the SSE2 and you’ll know what i’m talking about.

  27. Eig says:

    I liek save states! Looking forward for next update :)))

  28. LaNce21 says:

    Pretty good got to use it on my pc.. I do hope you release a mac version soon though…

    question in 9.6′s mac version.. how come the boost doesn’t work?

  29. zeromus says:

    asnec, you have made the mistake of assuming that speed is a goal for desmume.

  30. LaNce21 says:

    zeromus, you’re right there.. so far as far as I’m concerned… Desmume’s better since they’d happily create mac versions unlike no$gba… plus pokemon games like black and white work on 9.6 :)) perfectly like a charm boo yeah!

  31. J says:

    Cant wait for the MAC version. Hopefully there are more settings. Hope its runs good. . . games are unplayable at the moment…..but i still support.

  32. Eig says:

    Problem: On pokemon soul silver when i start fight with Falkner the game freezes! On no$gba i didnt have this problem so i assume it is problem in desmume. any1 halp?

  33. Majin K says:

    I have a bit of a problem. I started playing on 0.9.6 but transferred my stuff to a new computer. I downloaded 0.9.7, but found out it can’t load my savestates from 0.9.6. Is there any way I can continue where I left off?

  34. zeromus says:

    majin, use in-game save and transfer the .dsv

  35. BenGhostblood says:

    OMG! I got 0.9.7 but it run slow like a hell! How can i speed it up!

  36. Nut says:

    This version is just perfect!
    It doesn’t slow even if I record the game with Camstudio!
    Surely the best DS emulator and much, much better than No$gba and iDeaS!

  37. ME says:

    Maybe speed will be a goal AFTER the DS is discontinued…

  38. Blue Thunder 25 says:

    Been waiting for this release and it works better than 0.96 in my case, thanks a bunch!! May I say a suggestion about the screen separation function? can you make the two screen split like, the upper screen can be dragged in the upper left and the lower screen can be dragged on the lower right of the monitor? I’ve been looking for that function in the screen separation option but can’t seem to find it. I see this kind of screen separation in the ideas emu

  39. Sefirosu says:

    I love so much this release ! Thanks for the big work you’re doing ! BIG UP !

  40. acord says:

  42. nicky 31 says:

    i have a good idéa for the next release of desmume

    can you connecte the i phone only for the touch screen et the monitor , only for the game

    it’s may be a very good gameplay

  43. Torkelson says:

    Really hopping for a quality Mac build. I know the needs of the many (PC users) outweigh the needs of the few (Mac users) but i’m stuck with my Mac and i’d really like to see a working emulator for it! Good job none the less and keep it up!

  44. writ says:

    Still patiently waiting for the Mac release. Thanks for your consideration of the Mac users.

  45. lee says:

  47. Oliver says:

    In Denmark, “Nosse” means testicle.

  48. zeromus says:

    lee in the time it took you to type that you could have tried changing all the sound options

  49. ArkieFaust says:

    they say patience is virtue…. glad that i always wait patiently… Thanks a lot!!

  50. lee says:

    @zeromus: yup i did changed the sound options. i just clicked the shut up mode and the screeching was gone. though you cant hear the sound effects of battles, psynergy and djinn. any help on these zeromus? thanks a lot.
