I know this has been done before, but I figured it would be preferrable to making a blog simply containing a stupid 'fuck you god, I'll make a blog when I feel like it' joke.
Anyways, I bought a R4DS
homebrew card for my DS about 2 months ago and absolutely love it. It is my first entry into the world of GBA/DS homebrew. But, according to friends, previous tools were pretty unfriendly to use (and obviously they were either ugly as shit, or had a horrendous value/cost ratio).
For the $35 I paid for the card, and the $20 for a 2g Kingston microSD off of newegg, you will not find a better value on the DS.
I suck at writing composition, I'm going to do bullet points for a while
-With the microSD setup, everything is drag'n'drop, no shitty pc software
-Some of the more advanced nds files will need a dldi patch to work on the R4, download the patcher off this
page. Once it's installed, you simply right-click on the nds file and pick dldi patch
easy as creampie.
, overall, is the best site I've seen for homebrew games, this
has a great selection of games and apps as well (although it contains some dead links, and pretty shitty documentation).
- After a while, your menu screens on the ds will start to look cluttered, don't forget to set folders that you don't need to access directly to hidden
, it makes everything look much nicer.
- Themes are a nice part of the R4 system as well, they consist of 4 images and a theme.ini file
are my themes, feel free to tell me how much they rock/suck (preferrably on this blog, rather than that site). Also browse the site, they have some decent quality themes on there.
- If you want to make your own themes, but don't want to make an .ini file from memory, use This
program. I suggest using it ONLY for the ini file, it sucks for anything else.
I also made a couple 'adult' themes, if you're interested, you can send me a pm and I'll send them to you, here's a preview
I know I probably forgot alot, so be sure to check the comments for the other 75% of what I wanted to say :/
Oh, what the hell,
