This section details emulators that can be used on the Nintendo DS, rather than emulators for the DS (check Emulation for that). Included in this section will be any noteworthy ports as well as any emulators that come around.
This is homebrew code so either use a EZManager 2.09final or above version or rename the extension .gba and burn making sure no patches are applied if you use a beta of EZManager 2.09 or EZClient. EZ4 users simply copy the rom that is made by the builder to your miniSD (if save support is availble you may have to run it through EZ4 Client beforehand (use a .gba extension unless told otherwise).
Ports A fair few older games have been ported until this section gets updated here are a few:
see the left hand column of dc-emu for more ports and homebrew games.
Before the list of emulators here are a few emulators that are approaching or have reached reasonable workability and will result in a playable game:
SNESDS A Super nintendo emulator with a fair few games working.
snezziboy DS This is a nice DS port of a new SNES emulator for the GBA. Better than SnesDS is many respects and getting better with every release.
nesDS A Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) (or famicom in Japan) emulator, nice features although lacking true save support (should you have a save from somewhere else and you have it in the SRAM it will work, no saves will be generated though).
Modified NesDS, save support and a few more features.
ScummVM DS Allows you to play Lucasarts' point and click adventure games such as Sam and Max. Works quite well with most fo the SCUMM games playable, see the link for a guide to getting all set up (make sure to use no compression on the zip you make).
GBAGI Allows you to play classic Sierra adventure games (Space Quest, Police Quest, Kings Quest, etc). Patch it with EZClient with "SRAM_TYPE" as the save type to enable savegame support.
