Read the readme first. If you don't want to read it in the PND read it here instead: http://www.drastic-ds.com/drastic_readme_pandora.txt

(you don't need BIOS images anymore, but if you already got them with a previous version you should probably keep using them)

Updated it to version r0.1p (PND version 1.1.0.0) to fix a bug causing some crashes.

probably going to be a little late for work today...

EDIT:

Managed to get Sonic Rush working nicely on my CC256MB.

Many games were "failing to erase data", however.

Bloody excellent. Only tried a few things, and some of them don't work, as expected (Advance wars turned ultra-slow as soon as the battlefield (and, I expect, the 3D engine) came into play. Still - Amazing work!

I'll need to find a way to take a hand on a drive stored at 6000km away to test (my kid cartridges dumps).

But congrats man what you have here is already such an achievement and I know you have evrythings in hand to make this jawbreaking.

I'm looking forward to play this in a fews months ;)

As notaz said in the other thread : release often and grow on the positives feedbacks ;)

Yes it uses 3D heavily - haven't you been told to not complain about that?

Absolutely awesome! Thank you for your enormous dedication! Can't wait to try it out when I find time :)

This might be the Killer App of the Compo!

He was just stating his experience, not complaining ;) I don't see anything wrong with that.

Congratulations. Great achievement. B)


PS: Just don't know when I will try this out. DS(i) hardware and software is still actively sold. Since I don't download such ROMs, it will probably take some time. Or I find a way to dump my own carts.
A Nintendo DS with a Flashcart and an FTP Server where you want to upload the dumped roms works :)

Hi ED we need in the Shop now such a USB Gadget for the Pandora



When this work like the Retrode can we play our own Games over USB directly on the Pandora ;)

There is then no real need to dump Roms.

I wasn't in any way complaining - If anything, I tried to make the point that it worked as I expected, and I understood the reason for it.  I'm not always clear, though, so if it was misunderstood, I hereby try to rectify that :)

Just about to give this a try, noticed a minor issue with the readme :

nds_bios_arm9.bin 16KB

nds_bios_arm7.bin 4KB

The file sizes (or names) have been transposed, i.e. the arm 9 file should be 4KB & the arm 7 file should be 16KB in reality

Really pleased you decided to release this for the competition :)

Wow, tried it, quite a few good games are runny VERY VERY playable already :)

And that's without 3D optimization yet :D

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 has the weirdest graphical glitches I've ever seen on an LCD. Totally scrambled graphic :D

Awesome job :D

Haha, playing Professor Layton and Pandora's Box ON Pandora's Box is awesome ;)

Can anyone trying out games already share which ones work really playable? Might be handy for others as well as for a compatibility list!
