Seeing as the one in bargains is being clogged up with posts that aren't about bargains I thought it might be better to have one here, and try to keep the talk of roms, backups or whatever the fuck you want to call them out of here!!

Total noob question: you don't have to do anything to your DS to make all this homebrew malarky work, do you?

Assuming you've already got the R4 card, no.

You might need to DLDI patch the files to make them work, but after that it is just a case of dragging and dropping onto the Micro SD card and running 'em.

You get everything you need, including the MicroSD card from dealextreme: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.1459

it works out just over £23 delivered and mine took about 6 days to arrive.

OK, cheers. Is it considered to be one of the best R4 kits available?

I just read a review of it here, and it says that SCUMMVM and other emulators don't work. Has that changed in the six months since the review.

I'm completely new to this, so have really no idea what's good or not, or what I should look out for.

DLDI is a Dynamically Linked Device Interface for libfat. What does that mean? Basically, instead of including static drivers for each device in every homebrew program, a 32 KB placeholder is inserted into the code instead. This placeholder is then replaced by the user, who patches the homebrew program with a specific DLDI patch for his or her specific homebrew device.

Yes it is good, basically before homebrew developers had to hard code drivers into their software and then when a new flash device came out their applications or games wouldn't run. DLDI means that when a new flash device comes out, as long as there is a DLDI driver for it, it will work with any piece of homebrew supporting DLDI patching.

OK, I get it. Thanks.

SCUMMVM works absolutely fine but to get full talky on Indy fate of atlantis and sam and max, you do really need the original CD's (which i'm sure you all do....) as you need to convert the CD audio to a particular file for it to work on the DS.

Incidentally, the freeware talky version of Beneath a Steel Sky works straight off, which is nice.

I just copied my Sam 'n' Max CD to my Micro SD card and the voices seem to be fine? (Though slightly out of sync, IIRC.)

NitroTracker - http://nitrotracker.tobw.net/

Make music with your DS, includes sampling capability (via the DS’ mic), sample playback, and advanced song creation capabilities.

EDIT: Examples of stuff people have made with it.

- Drum and Bass track entirely out of vocal samples.

Is it probably also worth mentioning DSFTP, which allows you to run an FTP server on your DS. You might be thinking, why is that useful?. Well for one you can backup your saves, upload themes and homebrew without having to take the R4 out the DS.

Only downside is the transfer speeds are around the 40k/s mark.
