DSMZX is a port of MegaZeux to the Nintendo DS. It is a game creation system (GCS) inspired by Tim Sweeney/Epic Megagames' classic shareware game ZZT, created in late 1994.

DSMZX currently builds against devkitARM-r26, libnds-1.3.8, and libfat-1.0.4. The libnds keyboard graphic has been replaced with this fixed version with better transparency.


Download and extract file.

DLDI patch .nds file and copy it with files in /games/megazeux/ to the root directory of the card.

Notes from developer:

Because of the small amount of main memory on the DS, a SLOT-2 device with extra memory (e.g. SuperCard) is recommended. Without it, large game worlds will run out of memory.
