c'est formidable!

Indeed, DS homebrew development is still going strong.
I am going to try out the multi arcade emulator marcem that is out for it too!

Speed Issues

I actually haven't had the time to try it, but plan to very soon. You can check out the compatibility chart here:

I assume things will improve in future versions (they just started, the emulator came out last week).

They also have a Coleco emulator for DS by the way:

Very nice...

It looks pretty great (obviously having the keyboard on the touch screen is the way old comp emulation should be done). I have a means of playing homebrew software on my DS (through a slot 1 and slot 2 combo), but have never given something like this a try. Since the site is in French, any gotcha's with this Seb, like speed issues or anything?
