This is an NES emulator for Nintendo DS. It is modified upon nesterDS. The mapper is implemented with reference to nesterJ, NNNesterJ, VirtuaNES, etc.

Features

  • DLDI compatible (ROM, SAVE).
  • Changed screen reduction to Flickr display instead of simple thinning.
  • Many mappers added.
  • Changed the key settings of the A and B buttons from A, B to B and Y (same as nesDS).
  • Define an icon (nester icon is displayed in the menu of the magic computer).
  • Sprite unlimited mode.
  • Slightly faster.
  • Display of the number of frame skips.

Installation

Note: In order to use this emulator, you will need to prepare the disk system BIOS (DISKSYS.ROM).

DLDI patch .nds file for your flash device.

Put the .nds file and disk system BIOS (DISKSYS.ROM) to the root directory.

Place the ROM image (.nes) or DISK image (.fds) to the flash card. It does not support Japanese file names or characters contain second byte of Shift JIS code.

User guide

Note: Please make sure you back up important data or save files, in case of encountering any errors or corrupted save files.

Make sure you press X+A and see the message Save SRAM OK (SAVE is complete when OK is displayed).
