Snes Games on DS ?

by NathanBarnatt Sun Feb 17, 2008 5:22 am

Can I get Super Nintendo games on my Nintendo Ds somehow? Will the R4 cartridge help me do this? Can i download roms and put them onto the DS?? Is this possible?

yes, it's crappy tho. all-stars, earthbound and sf2 turbo work fine on it. no great rpg's. google "snemulds", Any flash cart will work. I use a supercard and super-key. Look at dealextreme.com for the TTDS for under $30.

Also you don't need to patch snemulds with the dldi as somebody else has kindly done this for you :)

I found that metroid worked surprisingly well (better than any emulator on the psp has done so far). It's the only game i've played on it though.

I use snemulds for Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, and Super Metroid and they all work damn near perfect.

The emulation quality of SNEmulDS, the best SNES emu for DS, is really quite good. You just have to scale your expectations back a bit, as it's a far less powerful machine than your current PC. Think about SNES emulation on PC about, oh...ten years ago, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what it can do. No games with special chips, and Mode 7 effects sometimes are less than perfect. But for games with more modest demands (staples like Super Mario World, Zelda: LTTP, Gradius III), they usually play fullspeed, with great sound. And the emu has a lot of options you can tweak (sometimes have to tweak) to get games to run better.

SNEmulDS runs great even on my Max Media Dock, arguably one of the worst DS homebrew devices money can buy :) For the record, so does jEnesisDS, a great Sega Genesis emulator that also features a lot of games that play fullspeed (with passable sound).

Could someone post a list of emulators for the DS? I just got the Cyclos and a 4gb card that I'm hoping to fill.

thanks

Here's what you're gonna wanna hunt down:

SNES: SNEmulDS v0.6 alpha
Genesis/Mega Drive: jEnesisDS 0.6
NES: NESDS (not sure of the latest version)

Other emus that I don't use so often:
GB/GBC: Lameboy 0.9. It features a cool screen scaling effect to stretch the playfield, but palettes and border support aren't as good as Goomba Color for GBA. But look out for a DS port of Goomba soon.
Master System/GG: DSMasterPlus 1.3. Sound is an octave too low, and really, if you've got jEnesis, the only game worth playing on MS is Phantasy Star.
Colecovision: ColecoDS 2.0. Same dev as above, same problem: sound is an octave too low.
MAME/Arcade: MarcaDS 4.0. Same dev again; I could never get the thing to work. Cheers if you can.

There's also a version of SCUMMVM (that I haven't tried), as well as ports of Doom, Descent, and Quake (in various states of functionality), so you can get your DOS on as well. Head over to the DCEmuUK forums and start doing some research; they're good people, and there's a lot of great info over there.
