I finally intend to keep going with melonDS, in one of the possible directions.

You will know more about this soon, but for now, it's a surprise ;)

Now this is an unexpected, but welcome surprise. I look forward to seeing where you take it!

As unlikely as it may be, I just hope that it somehow involves rendering the polygons at a higher internal resolution.

I just completely revamped my HTPC and now it should be able to run two or three copies of MelonDS simultaneously without any issue, therefore allowing psudo split-screen in games like Mario Kart DS...but those low-res 192p polygons are going to be pretty darn aliased. :P

No edit button makes me clarify, my concerns about the aliasing and general low-res-ness is because I'd be running such psudo split-screen on a large HDTV which is only going to amplify the low-res-ness of the DS's polygonal rendering.

For example, I tried to revisit Majora's Mask on the N64 on my current HDTV, but holy bananas as the jaggies. And it was only the jaggies and 240p resolution that were the issue because I found the 480p up-res of N64 Majora's Mask on the Wii virtual console to look way better even when using the same composite video signal.

Emulator for Switch/3DS?

this is a ds emulator. of course not a switch/3DS emu.

I'm guessing Zinx asked about the emulator being ported to the Switch and/or 3DS

But anyways ^^ Great to see you are back at it ^^

I'm really glad about this comeback.
This emulator has so much potential and the new possibilities it has to offer will finally make for better ds emulation and silence extra naysaying noise. Hopefully you have been doing okay too, that's all what matters.

The possibilities are so many too:
- recompiler to be the fastest oss emulator so far
- faster higher internal resolution
- DSi modes
- more connectivity modes (port with wave scanner/slidemag kid, Wii wifi, online wifi with altwifi)
- weird addons like solar cartridges and cameras and keyboards...

and they're not realized to a satisfying degree yet elsewhere. Your work is the first part towards that goal and should make realizing it possible eventually.

I'm mostly looking forward to WFC emulation, so I can play online via Wiimmfi. DSi support, cheat menu and native upscaling would be nice too.

Once again, darn the lack of edit.

Maybe before I go on wishing for things to enhance the psudo split-screen experience, maybe I should wish for psudo split-screen to actually work :P

Turns out that, if you run two instances of melonDS with each running Mario Kart DS, both instances can see the other, but you get "Communication Error" as soon as one of the melonDS instances tries to join the game created by the other melonDS instance.

I'm glad to hear it! Excited for what's to come. Thank you for your hard work, I hope both you and your emulator are doing well :)

Wifi emulation is the best notice
