New forums and comment moderation

March 28th, 2007

We’ve opened new forums, that should be more customizable and useful than the old ones. After a few testing days, we’ve closed the old ones, as we will be only be using the new ones from now.

On a related note, we’ve seen quite a few comments not related to DeSmuME on this blog. Keep in mind that this ones won’t be approved, even if related to emulation or DS. This includes rom begging, talk about other emulators and other stuff not related to DeSmuME.

DeSmuME v0.5.0 released!

December 23rd, 2006

Well, it’s been a long, hard road since we started working on DeSmuME back in April. And now you too can enjoy the fruits of our labor.

So what’s new? The main things that were done were rewrites to the code(it’s now 100% C code, compiles and runs on 64-bit compilers, and is almost big endian safe), FAT/CompactFlash emulation, framebuffer emulation, sound emulation, backup memory emulation, and save states.

Anyways, the source, windows binary, and linux binary are all available on the downloads page. Merry Christmas :)

DeSmuME update

November 28th, 2006

I just figured I’d make a post here to let everyone know what we’ve been up to of late. Well basically we’re still working on the emulator with our goal being a release around Christmas hopefully. We still need to add shash’s code and fix a few odd things, but for the most part the emulator is running pretty good. Expect an increase in compatibility, sound emulation, backup memory emulation, and save states.
