How to use

melonDS requires BIOS/firmware dumps from a DS. You can dump them with the following dumper.

The files must be placed in the same directory as the melonDS executable, as follows:

* bios7.bin -- ARM7 BIOS, 16KB
* bios9.bin -- ARM9 BIOS, 4KB
* firmware.bin -- firmware, 256KB or 512KB

Note: the DS-mode firmware in the 3DS isn't bootable. It only contains the bare minimum required to run DS games. Be sure to enable direct game boot when using a firmware dump from a 3DS.


Emulation: settings related to emulation. For now it lets you enable direct game boot (directly runs the game instead of going through the firmware).

Input: allows you to configure keyboard and joystick input. You can change a mapping by clicking the corresponding entry, then pressing a keyboard key or joystick button. For now, joystick input uses the first joystick available if multiple joysticks are plugged.


* Windows 64-bit
* Linux 64-bit

Have fun! :D

The speed and the enthusiasm that you update MelonDs and discribe the processing is awsome. I am not a Programmer, but i can follow the evolution.I like to help you. On the picture, you can see a bug i have, when i load a rom. "Arm Read" over and over.

technical Info: Win7 64bit, AMD CPU, bios and firmware = yes, MelonDS 0.2

PS. Where can i donate for your project?

PPS: I´m a big fan from mgba. I read about medusa. Is it a friendchip Projekt or a cool footrace? Funny that two new emulator simultaneuos born.

you need the BIOS and firmware files: bios7.bin, bios9.bin, firmware.bin

also medusa is another project but it's not a race, no :P
