Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

hi ! i've just tested Zelda Phantom Hourglass (E) but it crashes when trying to create the .sav File.
(with the v.0.9.1)

so i've found a solution : run the game with IdeaS emulator. then register your name to create the .sav file. stop the emulator.
then re-try to run the game with DeSmuMe (wich have a beter sound emulation), then the game will work fine at almost real speed!! (with a 3GHz Athlon X2 and vista64 :-)

good game!!

and thx to developpers ! you've done a very great job. continue!!

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

Perhaps a bug should be submitted about this over on SourceForge ? (http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=ad … tid=832291)

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

In order for me to play this game ( I have the US version) I had to select USE ARM9 and ARM7 bios (since I have my dumped copies).  To let the game load and save properly you can also set the save type to FRAM 256kbit and it works fine.  The only issue I had was during the intro the top screens image would sometime flicker into the lower image.

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

Since the Mac OSX version lacks any way to set the save type of a file, I made a quick patch to main.mm and main_window.mm to add a menu to set it. It's a bit annoying to realize it wasn't there, considering it's just a GUI thing; the feature is already there.

Anyway...I compiled it on my system with XCode with the 10.4 SDK. I haven't tested it (and I'd never done Objective-C before), but it lets me play Zelda so I'm fine with it.

The following contains the compiled binary and the actual patch (if the binary doesn't run on your machine): http://etheon.net/code/desmume-patch.tar.gz

Due to a lack of MAC developers on the team, this is unfortunately unlikely to make it into desmume. If youre interested in maintaining the MAC port of desmume, please hop unto IRC and discuss things with the developers (im not one of them smile

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

Like I said, I have no experience in Objective-C, I just wanted to play Zelda so I put something together quick. Unfortunately Zelda doesn't play at 100% on my machine so it's kinda moot.

Edit: Well I've submitted a proper patch over on SourceForge, so we'll see.

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

we'll see if an itinerant mac coder comes along and decides to work on desmume for a day or a week? its bound to happen eventually.

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

I see that Zelda is not playable to end. On second boss (wind) you need play on booth screens but screens random freezing, working upper screen, then bottom, but never both at once time (similar effect is on game intro but in intro you can ignore it). This is not possible win this boss battle with this issue.
Zelda also not working on MAC because no option in menu to set NDS roms. Without this roms game not boot. So don't talk that is playable - I really unhappy because I can't finish that game!!!

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

So I got Desmume to play Phantom Hourglass. All is fine and dandy, the emulator plays REALLY fine (I didn't get the lag on the wind boss) and all, but...

One problem I found with playing Phantom Hourglass on Desmume is when it asks you to "press the sacred crest on the chart" or something.

Apparently, you're supposed to close your DS, but is there any function implemented to do that on Desmume? If not, could you guys implement it in the next version?

I'd be glad if someone replied to this via e-mail...

The default for that is the backspace  key...

Re: Zelda Phantom Hourglass

Ok, with the v0.9.4, the .sav Problem is resolved.
there is still a little texture bug : when you see a hole on the ground or the wall in dongeons, 2 textures ares on the same plan, so ti causes flickering textures.

with this vertion, the emulator is faster than  the other vertion.
game is still playable, (i'm on the 3rd map on the sea)

thx devlopers, thx nintendo for this fabulous games.

I recommend that you use 2664 or the latest 2678 - it is working perfectly with frameskip 0 or auto.
