nds4droid release 38

Hey homies, time for another nds4droid release. Couple of new features for y’all to chew on, so get it on Google Play and sourceforge. Changes:

  • Added a new, much sleeker ROM browser (thanks Alexander P.)
  • Added an autosave feature, on by default, which will save the game’s state periodically

Alexander P. provided the new ROM browser code (it’s so cute!), and he’s the same guy who designed the icons for nds4droid, so big thanks to him. Check out his app on Google Play, Manga Junkie.

        1. I really appreciate all the work you have put into the app. Seriously it’s impressive and We all say it has great potential because it does but releasing the app stability is all we are waiting for at the moment.

        2. It’s amazing how thick headed some people cn be. Just STFU and appreciate what he does for us. Ungrateful fags

          1. I did appreciate it. Read the post. I am grateful. Now go die under a bridge. Trololololo

        3. Why?
          Because you discourage him by subliminal saying, that all the other work he had put into the project was wasted time!

  1. big ups for your hard work ^^ just a quick question though.

    Is Lightning-JIT better than exophase-JIT atm? is there any way i can compile exophase-JIT in release 38?

    2. Dear Dondu sirI have seen that you are resourceful poersn.My worry is your time and energy is unnecessarliy waste on this anti periyar, anti dk issues.we all know about veeramani and his policy stands.My humble request is you could write on useful things, interesting incidents you have come across (in your IDPL, transalation filed, old chennai life…).

  2. Great work mate. Keep doing this.
    Can people stop asking him for improvements updates? He is doing this for free in his spare time and also would need to do other jobs to support himself too.

  3. I like the new ROM-Selector! But it only supports zips, no rar nor 7z!

    Btw.: Jeff forgot to mention another feature he added with auto-save. The time-interwall after which it actually saves can be set. Would be nice if there were more than those fixed values available. Like the JIT-Block-size-setting… 🙂

    Auto-saving was a really wanted feature! So @those complaining: Nope. Speed isn’t the only thing we want. Rather stability and functionality!

  4. You’re the best! The emulator is becoming better, still needs to be fluid 3d games but we have to be patient and wait. It’s very hard all the programming you need to do so we have to thank the programmer because it is free. Hopefully soon go the zelda and metroid fluid!

  5. I can’t understend why is so hard to emulate a 67Mhz and 33Mhz (100Mhz) (NDS cpu)…I have one idea…(maybe stupid) why you dont make a option to disable the 2th screen? (50% faster main screen) (33+33=66) and make a option to switch the screen to the 2th and disable the 1st. (2th screen would run at 2x FPS). SO I WILL PLAY KINGDOM HEARTS IN 14-18 FPS AND NOT IN 9-12.

    1. The screens don’t do any processing, they just show the pixels they’re given. Disabling one of them won’t speed up the game any more than turning off your monitor speeds up your computer.

      Technically, you could bypass rendering operations targeting one of the screens, but being reliably selective about what to skip would probably just make things slower, and if I recall correctly the most DS games use the rendering clock as a throttle for other game logic, so you’d probably end up with a broken emulator after the first sixtieth of a second.

  6. thanks for the release, jeff, btw anybody here know the fastest configuration??

    1. jit block to 100. light jit enginer. no sound. (and frameskip to 9 for faster move bt it will be laggy)

  7. Great update jeff, but when I start nds4droid it’s a black screen with nothing, if I press menu the rescan and file browser options show, if I press rescan it freezes else it goes to old file browser

    also I have an idea: is there any way you can put in the emu a virtual overclock setting like in ppsspp? I know they’re different consoles but it’s just a question and could help when the emu is fullspeed. Take your time and the emu will be fullspeed.
