View Full Version : Is there a Nintendo DS emulator for Mac OSX?

June 2nd, 2006, 03:57
I really want to play New Super Mario Bros. for Nintendo DS. Problem is, I'm on a mac and I can't find any DS emulators for OSX.

I'm on an iBook G4 so running games through Virtual PC is a bit of a stretch but if it's my only option I might have to give it a try.

I think there's a DS emulator Linux and I believe OSX comes with a version of linux called Darwin. Does anyone know if I'd be able to run a linux emulator that way?

1) Darwin is not linux
2) Someone might be able to compile the linux version of dsemu for OSX, but it probably won't be either of us.
3) If you really want to play it, buying a DS and the game will be more satisfying in the long run IMHO.

No emulator can even play that game yet.

So buy a DS for now :p

I actually took the source code of the linux version of DeSMuMe and ported it to Mac OS X. The interface and all other code works fine except for the actual emulator code. Certain adjustments need to be made to the ARM assembly code that is really out of my league :/
