The true classic on your PC

If the mention of the Nintendo DS didn't make you feel pleasantly nostalgic, then you didn't have a childhood. Nowadays, unfortunately, it is quite difficult to find and set up such a rarity console that will at least take you back to a bright childhood, where everything was different, for an evening. But what if we told you that this is not necessary? After all, there are emulators due to which you can play your favorite childhood games right on your computer. One of the brightest representatives of programs in this category is DeSmuME.

We will tell you in more detail about what it is and what advantages it is ready to offer you

Short description

DeSmuME is a Nintendo DS game console emulator. The emulator has excellent compatibility and has a lot of fine-tuning: video filters, screen size and orientation, hotkeys and others. It also supports codes, taking screenshots, and saving game state. If you configured DeSmuME correctly, you can achieve some acceleration of the gameplay, but it all depends on the parameters and technical features of the device.

Main functions

The main features of DeSmuME are listed below:

  • support for a large array of Nintendo DS and DS Lite games;

  • the ability to save the game progress at any time of the play;

  • availability of filters to improve the quality of the game image;

  • the ability to take screenshots of the gameplay.

You can save screenshots in JPEG, TIFF, BMP, GIF and PNG formats.

Supported formats

The main format that DeSmuME works with is .DSV (DeSmuME Save File). However, in addition to it, the program can work with the following formats:

  • .BIN (Nintendo DS Binary File);

  • .DCT (DeSmuME ROM Cheats File);

  • .DST (DeSmuME Save State);

  • .DFC (DeSmuME Firmware Configuration File);

  • .NDS (Nintendo DS Game ROM);

  • .ND5 (Renamed NDS File);

  • .SAV (Nintendo DS Save File).

Testing platform

One important feature to note about DeSmuME is that it was developed not only as an emulator, but also as an open source testing platform, which would appeal to programmers. Therefore, the program has many technical options that may cause difficulty for inexperienced users. In addition to simple key mapping, you can also make changes to the firmware, sound and video, and more.
