nds4droid release 45

Got an e-mail recently from someone having problems running nds4droid on an NVIDIA SHIELD so I’ve made a couple of updates that should ease the pain for those of you using these newfangled console-like devices. You can as always find it on Google Play and sourceforge. Bullet points:

  • Changed the default key mapping to open the options menu to “KEYCODE_BUTTON_START.” This should be a better default for controller-based systems like the OUYA or the NVIDIA SHIELD. It will require a full reinstall of the app for this default to take effect.
  • Added the ability to access the settings screen from the ROM browser options menu.
  • Enabled compatibility for devices without a touchscreen.

          1. …and you’re dumb as shit, you Little prick…
            Do it better!

            Start programming, if you’re capable of doing it and not just a retard…

          2. …and you’re (still) dumb as shit, you little prick…Do it better!

    1. Because it is ported and the emulation-core of desmume isn’t optimized for android, but rather to be portable to as much systems as possible, thus using more “Abstraction Layers” and so it has less recources for pure emulation, because it must be abstracted for every single “call”, not only emulated…
      You can compare it to an emulator, running an emulator… Technically it is different… But I want to give you an easy understandable picture…

      Other things like sending calls back and forth through the system-bus leads to higher latencys per reworked (NDS-)call… It would be better, if that’s done on-die (directly on the CPU, to 1. shorten physical ways a call has to “go” and latencys due to it and 2. to minimize “idle-times”, where the CPU or RAM has to wait, until it gets the reworked data back…) in it’s cache…

  1. Drastic is closed source…no speed update made in Drastic or ever will be…Nds4d can some day be faster than Drastic(big fantasy)…its all depends on that japanise boy DesMUmE creator…and if you take ARM A15 CPU will be 40% faster than ARM A9

    1. nds4droid will never be faster than drastic, unless jeff rewrite the emulator from scartch, optimized for arm and neon architheture. But nds4droid is free, and DraStic is paid, so both emulators are great.

  2. Pretty much thankful for your work! Though i have don’t have money to donate for your work, i still want to come and to say thank you for your great job!

  3. I need of some assistance. Aside from locating a saved state via files. Is it possible to locate/open a previous autosaved state/file. I never really took advantage of the save state feature or in game save feature, foolish on my part to allow the autosaved to be responsible for my progress but now it seems my game has froze and the autosavd happened to be saving at the same time now im stuck. Im not trying to doubleback, please help

  4. Anyone got any ideas why my bluetooth controller button won’t work with any games. I am able to map them in the settings part of the App so it must be seeing the controller but when a game is running they just don’t work.

  5. Can someone PLEASE help me find the settings menu..I have an HTC One and the roms work and run great but I cannot even turn on the sound or calibrate the settings to my desire because I can’t find the settings menu..HELP PLEASE!!! btw great work thanks for all the hard work

    1. I have an HTC one x on mine when you pull up a Rom to play there at the bottom of your screen are 3 dots stacked on top of each other. Press this to give the different menu options including a settings option that should help with your sound issues. If that’s not what you were looking for then I’m sorry I couldn’t help.

    2. was just wondering does it run at normal speed on the one?

      have a one-X but i need to set frameskipping to 7 and i think it’s not even running at normal speed then >.<

    1. There gona be new Arm vA7 called cortex-a15 CPU(Galaxy s4) up to 2.5Ghz and 40% faster that Arm-a9…This emulator it is not slow its just in wrong time…

  6. You actually get used to the slowness, once you play it for some time. Trust me. 😛
    Anyway, awesome work. Keep it up! Sadly, I can’t really donate…

  7. is there option to set resolution as multiple of the orginal resolution of nds because
    I can’t find it? the emulator is always fullscreen (keeping orginal proportions) and texts look bad because it’s enlarged by not integer number

  8. how do you use the start button now? i dont have a controller and i cant find the button which is suppose to be mapped to start

  9. Hi,
    I had a saumsung s3 with nds4droid and it worked great. I have recently upgraded to the s5 but because the new Samsung phone does not have the options button on the left anymore (was replaced by the open apps function) there is no way to access the menu to save / restore states etc…. is there a way to do it or is this a bit of dev?????

    Thanx for the great app!!!

  10. Android applications development is increasingly becoming challenging for most developers given the plethora of screen resolutions
    in the market unlike developing for i – OS that has only two for i – Phone and now two for i – Pad.
    One of the great features of Class Buddy is
    that it allows you to enter in assignments and due dates, and when you get feedback or
    grades on those assignments, you can enter that information as well, and
    Class Buddy will calculate your GPA in that class for you.

    Because such an important and excellent product crossed the Android Symbian, Blackberry OS statistics in 2010,
    following the merger had now shifted to Android phone and many official and private developers were closely involved in developing the best
    Android apps for Android phone.

  11. Nonetheless, if you need extra currency information, this app
    can do this too: you can view foreign money developments over
    a 5 12 months period, graph any currency towards some other, convert any forex to another (all currencies of the world can be found on this app) or do just about some other
    thing you can consider if it entails any of the
    world’s currencies. Despite the recent death
    of Steve Jobs and the Apple brand being on everyone’s mind, coupled with the i – Phone 4s and the popularity
    of the i – OS app, Siri-Google and Android are making tsunami like waves across the industry.
    With applications and a suite of helpful tools designed specifically for these mobile devices, you have the ability to schedule meetings, prepare for presentations, and
    quickly retrieve information during your next conference call.

  12. If many people are turning to mobile websites, then new streams of revenue is opened
    to businesses when they sell their products and services and it therefore make a lot of sense to
    optimize your website for smart phones. The devices that contained the
    malware Netflix app included: the Samsung Galaxy Note tablet (GT-N8013),
    Samsung Galaxy S III phone (SGH-1727), the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phone (SCH-1605),
    the Samsung galaxy S4 phone (SGH-1337), the Samsung
    Galaxy S III phone (SGH-1747), and the Samsung Galaxy S4 phone (SCH-1545).
    The most cost effective element of these new androids from Tracfone prepaid is the free triple minutes for life, triple data for life, and triple text messages
    for life that come included in the price of these phones.

  13. All medical information is available in medical pocket dictionaries so that when people feel any difficulty in understanding information about
    the disease then they can take help from the dictionaries.

    Whereas it may have been months to even a year before a i – Phone game was available on Android, it now is taking just several weeks because they
    know how important it is to get their application out as soon as possible.
    Without the right mental and emotional tools, those few days can rapidly spiral into weeks, months and years, and before we know it
    we’re stuck in mental and emotional chaos, with
    no idea of what direction to go in.

  14. As more and more people all over the world become
    more and more mobile with mobile phones and other devices such as i –
    Phones, i – Pods, Androids, and Blackberries,
    there is a large share of the existing online market that
    is being missed by businesses whose websites do not as
    yet have mobile versions. Dragon Ball Z Kai is one anime series that needs no introduction, because since
    the time of its start, it has been delivering to the
    viewers mind-boggling content, which is full of action and a storyline, that is completely out of the world.
    Such Major contracting facilities in China has also supported many sub- contractors , who build-up to hundreds of companies whom offered sub manufacturing for component parts
    or services like software integration to final end product to be assembled by the Bigger
    Manufacturing plant.

  15. If you’re thinking of purchasing a new Android device or perhaps already have an Android-based phone
    or other device, then there’s no question that you should be researching the best phone warranty or
    tablet warranty plans so you can protect yourself from big unexpected
    expenses as much as possible. I was really getting worried about him and probably my expressions gave it away because a
    guest had to come up to me and felt the need to explain that the father’s obsession with internet was not a bad sign. The e mails really contain a
    locked picture of the first frame of your video and when your recipient clicks on the play button they redirected to
    a locked website that really plays the video, however the way this is done is
    well enough no one is going to be distracted by such a minor detail.

  16. The backend part of your company supports these profit centers.
    The says of free proxies and tunnelling services are over, and
    as the Chinese government begins to tighten its grip on what comes in and out of the
    country informationally speaking, the need for a vpn to bypass internet censorship in China
    grows every day. You can download Avast Free Antivirus for free from the Avast website.

  17. Boss service attitude is to force, but also to buy it next time you buy a home very satisfied, very good quality, value for money, the seller service attitude is super, express delivery is also to force next time to buy a very nice, buy tortoiseshell, packaging very good, very beautiful and almost counter glasses, Dad like to bring to the very handsome.

  18. Not genuine, they fooled, but also expensive, really worth it taste a little big, blowing two days should be just fine, the version is still very good. Taste a little big, diamond metal out on a big one. Other okay taste a little big, the lock is also troublesome, not their own imagination so good. Taste is a little big! No tag! I do not know is not genuine praise habit taste a bit heavy, there is no picture so good texture, but overall okay. Beautiful natural texture, feeling very big on beautiful than ordinary leather.
