- New screen handling (next version will be ARM asm based)
- Mouse in touchpad mode is quicker.
Which games are really playable ?
Rick Dangerous I & II, Xenon 2, Speedball and many other Atari ST great games.
How to use it ?
Copy bios and disks in the /roms/st.
Bios file (tos102fr.img or other bios) have to to be renamed to tos.bin
Disks have to be in the .st format
Arialia has released v1.0 of DSPhoto into the Neoflash Spring Coding Contest. Grab it from there.
Earth Invaders 0 is an old school side scrolling 2.5D game, developped by smealrum(code) and lobo (GFX). Why 2.5D ? Because, as you may notice, the game features a classic 2D gameplay with a 2D background, but every single element, item, character of the game is actually real time rendered in 3D.
Enough of technical stuff. EI 0 is not only a side scrolling platform game but also an infiltration/shooting game which takes advantage of the unique features of the DS, such as the touch screen.
Fish Tank is a work in progress remake of Insaniquarium.
For now only Free Tank Mode is working. You can choose between 5 tanks with their own graphical and musical theme (more to come). In this mode, your goal is to collect enough money to buy all egg parts. You can also just send some relaxing time feeding the fishes and see them live… For that, just buy and feed fish that while growing will drop more valuable items. You can also buy different upgrades to enhance your feeding skills. The game will end if all your fishes starve to death.
TamaSurvivor is a Pang (or SuperPang) “clone” (please note the quotes). This is a demo version, the main features are working.
Your job is to put all “metal disks” onto the the other side of the playing field.
Everyone knows the helicopter in which you have to move up/down in a cavern to avoid hitting the walls… This is a remix of these kind of games, adding a nice little twist: The whole world turns!
DSOrganize is meant as a homebrew organizer application for the Nintendo DS that should have come built in in the first place. It is by no means comparible to a full-fledged organizer such as a palm, and it is not planned to become an operating system, video player, or anything similar.
