Text viewer for the DS.

Features

  • Makes use of a full touchscreen interface.
  • Persistent text bookmarking through SRAM.
  • Low power mode.
  • Multiple file support with clean GUI for selecting.
  • Uses a 5-pixel-width subpixel font to allow greater text density than standard 8-pixel tile fonts.

User guide

What you need:

  • A flashcart to hold your text files.
  • gbfs by Damian Yerrick for appending your text files to the binary.
  • A way of getting your DS to boot off of said flash cart, which also allows the arm9 code to access the cart's rom.

How to use:

  • Copy over gbfs, lsgbfs, and padbin somewhere on your path (all come with the gbfs package by Damian Yerrick).
  • Add your text files, then modify makefs.bat to use your own txt file(s) instead of the provided test ones.
  • After fulfilling the above requirements run makefs.bat.
  • If all goes well you will end up with textviewer_content.nds and textviewer_content.nds.gba files.

Compatibility

Tested by the author using wmb and a F2A 256mbit cart.

Runs on no$gba.
