The goal is to do things right and fast, akin to blargSNES (but hopefully better). But also to, you know, have a fun challenge :)

melonDS requires BIOS/firmware copies from a DS. Files required:
 * bios7.bin, 16KB: ARM7 BIOS
 * bios9.bin, 4KB: ARM9 BIOS
 * firmware.bin, 256KB: firmware
 
18
Note: the DS-mode firmware in the 3DS isn't bootable, it only contains the bare minimum to run games.

As for the rest, the interface should be pretty straightforward. If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask, though!
