    WiiDS - Emulator for Wii




    Now to be honest, all of my work has been done involving the DeSmuME core itself. I actually did nothing to contribute to the GUI, but the rest of the team (which is rather quite large now) did. More info in the near future ... (Looks I did have something awesome to show off just before my mini vacation o_0)

    Update: Just realized that (as revealed in comments) this is only a teaser of the GUI, or rather a photo shop cleaned up version of it. The only thing photo shopped in is the game case art which will eventually be put into the real GUI. There are also a few things in the GUI now that aren't in the image.

    Update 2: Please please please don't ask for a release date. We can't possibly even estimate one at the moment for fear of inevitably breaking it. Please understand that this is really, really, hard stuff.

    We have video emulation on DeSmuME Wii now
    We were very very very very very very very very very very close to this for the longest time. Scanff of WiiRadio and Bash the Castle fame found the problem. We now have video emulation from NDS ROMs on our port of DeSmuME to the Wii. At this point we've only tested some of the most basic homebrew ROMs available. More information and prolly pictures or a video soon.

    Btw, yes, Im back from vacation now (I will be back on IRC later today). It was truly great. Coming back and seeing the progress made on porting DeSmuME to the Wii while I was gone is simply breath taking. I'm thrilled to be able to start working on it again =)

    Update: In comments, profetylen claims that the sound emulation intentionally disabled in the SVN works when enabled. I can not confirm this at the moment.

    Update 2: Apparently, some people reporting on this story fail at using the emulator and are saying things causing a lot of uneducated comments along the lines of "dis is fake it no worky!!!!!!12". To reiterate, most ROMs are NOT going to work right now. However, quite a few already do. Here is a picture of the DS homebrew ROM FileNinja running on DeSmuME Wii:

    It's always been said that it'd be very difficult to emulate DS on Wii, so difficult that it will never be done.

    So we continue wonder.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
