The GameBoy has come a long way since we first saw that big white and grey block at the end of the last century. Its great, great, great grandson, the Nintendo DS is now even more powerful than the high-tech machines doing the rounds in the arcades of the early 90s. In fact, it’s so good that sometimes you’ll want to play with it in the office, which obviously you can’t. Well, actually you can. Actually you can’t. Well, with DeSmuME you sort of can.
The first thing you’ll need to realize is that downloading DS ROM files is illegal, so on your own head be it if the FBI rolls up outside your house. Legalities aside, DeSmuMEE is a pretty decent emulator, originally designed for games programmers to develop and test their latest creations. DeSmuME can be a little tricky to set up, but once running you’ll be able to enjoy a huge selection of games in ROM format.
This new release introduces lots of bug corrections, improvements and new features: among them are new save autodetection, new save file format and full rerecording support.
