DS emulator, sorta
The goal is to do things right and fast, akin to blargSNES (but hopefully better). But also to, you know, have a fun challenge :)
The source code is provided under the GPLv3 license.
## How to use
melonDS requires BIOS/firmware copies from a DS. Files required:
* bios7.bin, 16KB: ARM7 BIOS
* bios9.bin, 4KB: ARM9 BIOS
* firmware.bin, 128/256/512KB: firmware
Firmware boot requires a firmware dump from an original DS or DS Lite.
DS firmwares dumped from a DSi or 3DS aren't bootable and only contain configuration data, thus they are only suitable when booting games directly.
