turns out we're bad at following a roadmap, so I'll mainly make a list of must-haves for 1.0


melonDS 1.0 - must-haves

* improve OpenGL renderer: atleast work on dual-screen-3D cases, maybe get filtering working
* provide open-source BIOS replacement, generate firmware config data, atleast for DS support
* add support for configuring paths
* fullscreen already done
* separate windows


whenever

* 2D GPU fixes (to finish, esp mosaic)
* THE MELONWIFI NEEDS MORE LOVE!!
* advance the ongoing project of pixel-perfect 3D


whenever, far future maybe

* GBA backwards-compat ?????

GBA backwards compatibility means GBA emulation or emulating that feature some games have when you get extra stuff when you have a specific GBA cart inserted in the GBA slot?

What about local multiplayer?

means GBA emulation mostly (in the context of DS backwards-compatibility mode)

the latter is on the TODO list too, but that's not backwards-compatibility, it's just matter of letting the user pick a GBA ROM and exposing it at 0x08000000

it's included in the 'melonwifi' bit, it's essentially the same thing

Would this be mostly to try and improve the timings on a single PC running two instances of melonDS or have local multiplayer be playable over the internet? I did remember reading a post a while back saying it wasn't really possible to do the latter because of the timings for local multiplayer being very strict.

hi, im a very new user and im not super educated on everything thats happening, but heres my opinion

i think that fullscreen and separate windows need to be much higher priority, and gba backwards compatibility honestly can be scrapped, theres just no need for it nowadays, if you want a quick and easy lightweight gba emulator you grab VBA, and if you want multi-emulator convenience you get retroarch

regardless, thanks for being the hero ds emulation deserves

Why would you use VBA nowadays? mGBA or Higan are much better options for GBA emulation.
I'm fine with GBA backwards compatibility. I don't think it should be a priority by any stretch but when in the future melonDS has covered most other things well enough I think it'd be nice to have.
Agreed with full screen and separate windows needing to be higher. Well, I don't really need separate windows but full screen at least is something I'd consider to be quite important. You can work around the lack of full screen with external software for now but that's obviously no ideal.

The emulator can now do the latter. Attempt to open the GBA game in the emulator, and the DS firmware should say there's a GBA cart inserted. Then load the DS game.

melonDS 1.0 - must-haves
* fullscreen already done


Unless I am missing a setting/option somewhere (using 0.9.2) it doesn't appear that there is a way to start a game in full screen (like when launching from the command line). The only option appears to be dedicating a key to toggle into full screen once the game has already launched.

That is indeed the case, I believe.

My goal was mostly to point out that if this is the case then I don't think fullscreen should be considered done for the road-map.

My request is that, ideally, we would have a --fullscreen command line option; failing that, we could have the application remember if it was in full screen on the last run, and keep that state, or even simpler, if a game is launched via the command line, default to full screen. Any of these options would allow for full screen without dedicating a button to it, and allow melonDS to be used more seamlessly in game launchers.

But it is done, it just doesn't have the feature you want. If you want that feature, you can make an issue on github requesting it, or something.

I would argue that its not done; maybe the technicality of the feature, but not the spirit of the feature.

You can take nearly any game or emulator on the PC and its full screen functionality includes both being able to toggle on the fly and being able to start in that state. Full screen support with only one of these components is incomplete.
