melonDS aims at providing fast and accurate Nintendo DS emulation. While it is still a work in progress, it has a pretty solid set of features:

  • Nearly complete core (CPU, video, audio, ...)

  • OpenGL renderer, 3D upscaling

  • RTC, microphone, lid close/open

  • Joystick support

  • Savestates

  • Various display position/sizing/rotation modes

  • Work-in-progress Wi-Fi emulation for online connectivity and local multiplayer

  • Experimental emulation of the Nintendo DSi

  • and more are planned!

  • Note:* BIOS and firmware files dumped from a real DS or DSi console are required to use melonDS.
