NDStation is a flasher for the EZFlash 3-in-1 Expansion Pack which allows you to package a ROM within a .NDS file and therefore run it from your Slot 1 flash card's main menu. Its purpose is to make things feel more integrated and unified on your flash card.

The compression used is LZSS for borders and GZip for ROMs. In this version, the border bug was being fixed, means there are no longer white lines in the center, off to the side of the screen.

It was submitted to the NEO Summer Coding Compo 2007.

Features

  • Compression for both GBA ROMs and borders.
  • Border bug fixed.
  • Automatic NOR detection.

User guide

Game title - Define the embedded title in the ROM which can be changed.

Use PSRAM - Allow for faster loading for ROMs smaller than 16MB.

Use Compression - Compress ROMs with gzip before packing them.

Customize the NDS - Open menu where you can change icon for NDS file, choose custom border.

Preview NDS - Give you a rough idea of how NDS appears on R4DS's menu.

Go... - Build your .NDS file, and is finished when a message box pops up and says Complete.

Automatic NOR detection means the program automatically knows if a ROM has already been flashed to the NOR and will skip the flashing process unless the A button is held. This makes using NOR ROMs a lot faster than before. Remember, always start your NOR ROMs from the .nds file and not by just booting Slot 2.

Also don't forget to DLDI patch the NDS for your card.

Additional:

A modified version of NDStation by Matthews which fixed the splash screen when booting nds file.
