Gamecube Mods - Handheld News

This is another oddly named news site, but hey, it's not that bad of a place to get some news.

Emulation

DSEmu

I believe this is the premiere emulator at the current time. You Macintosh users may be happy to hear that this one runs in Virtual PC, unlike some other emulators. Let's all hope Doublec and the crew make this baby last. Open source forever!

DeSmuME

The first emulator to support 3D.

Dualis

This emulator is still in use too. Quite popular. The thing with current development on the DS is that if it doesn't work in one emulator, it might work in another. SO its nice to have a collection of Nintendo DS emulators. This one is a good add to that collection.

HyperDS

Firefly was working on this one for a while, but since he can only do one project at a time, he decided to dump it and developed WiFiMe and WMB software and the like.

Nintendo DS Emulator

A site deticated to covering the status of many Nintendo DS emulators.

An excellent resource for learning how sound works on the Game Boy Advance and the Nintendo DS. You'll be making your GBA or NDS speak in no time.

Drunken Coders' GBA Tutorials

Formerly known as The Pern project (Nintendo Reverse Engineering Project spelled backwards, so it ends up being "Project Engineering Reverse Nintendo Project". Notice the two Project words? Odd isn't it. I'm guessing that's why they renamed it. Enough of this talking within parenthesis. I'm out.).

Hacking

Building a Cheat Tool

Similar to the hacks with Mario Kart DS (enabling extra tracks, changing ROB's arm color), a group of forum participators attempts to create a universal cheat device for the DS.

DS Download Station

The DS Download Station has been dumped. Will this allow us to share our homebrew programs over wifi with those who have not flashed their DS systems with FlashMe? The hacking has already begun and it seems very promising.

The best tutorial I know of on how to install FlashMe on your Nintendo DS.

MightyMax's GBAMP Multiboot

A great, fully customizable NDS loader for GBAMP with full support for 3rd party plugins. Be sure to check this one out.

PassMe

Information about the PassMe presented in Japanese.

PassMe - Compatible Flash Carts

A list of flash carts compatible with the PassMe. Useful reference if you want to know if your flash cart will work with a PassMe. Most do work, but you'll never know until you read here.

PassMe - Lynx's dspassme.com

This is the place where I bought my multiple PassMe devices. Quality service and products. My PassMe still worked great, last time I used it.
Support homebrew! Buy from dspassme!

WiFiMe - Aaron Rogers's Tutorial

The best tutorial I know of for setting up WiFiMe. Aaron Rogers is quite the dude.

WiFiMe - Homepage

Yet another method of running homebrew on the DS. May or may not require FlashMe (anybody care to enlighten me?).

WiFiMe - List of compatible cards

Check here to see if your wifi card is compatible with WiFiMe. If its not, consider buying one of these cards if you want to do WiFiMe.

WiFiMe - WMBFront

A graphical front end to wmb.exe. Useful to those people who don't care to use the commandline much, are scared to use the commandline, or are otherwise impaired.

Software Tools

MapEd

A nice map and tile editor for GBA. Doesn't take much to make it work with the NDS.

Mirach

The world reknowned tile and map editor. Quite delicious.

NDS Disassembler

The website may be in Japanese, but what this software does will be important to all your English speakers out there. It takes an nds file and spits out assembly code, which shouldn't be so foreign to you.

NDS Header Viewer

This software allows you to view the header of an nds file and see what little treasures await you.

NDS Model Viewer

Ever wanted to view all those cool models in a Nintendo DS game? Well, with this tool, you can! I know this works with Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt, let me know if it works with other games as well.

NDS Top System

I forgot what this piece of software did, and I currently don't have an internet connection. Remind me to look this stuff up and fix this link description. Thanks.

Nintenren - Nintendo ROM Renamer with NDS support

I also forgot what this software does. I'm thinking it lets you rename and change the icon of an nds file, but I'm unsure. Make sure to let me know to fix this.

PictoSniff

I'm not sure this is the project's homepage, but will keep the link there until somebody tells me otherwise. This program sniffs PictoChat traffic and displays it in a relatively easy to view fashion.

RGBCompare

A decent little utility that allows you to compare color inconsistencies between Nintendo DS color and computer color. Also outputs useful color snippets for coding with.
