We won't make a 3DS/2DS emulator.

#1 Re: Support » DeSmuME flatpak v0.9.14 crashes clicking "Edit controls" on SteamDeck » Yesterday 00:55:20

this is a WIP build. use WIP builds at your own risk. Report bugs on the desmume github.

#2 Re: Support » Transfering save state from into DeSmuME » Yesterday 00:55:02

You're using battery save files, not "safe states".
Here's how you do what you need.
1. delete everything and start over
2. make a new directory on your desktop and put desmume and rom inside it
3. open the game in desmume and create a new save.
4. close desmume
5. make note of the location and name of the .dsv file that desmume has droppde
6. replace it with the one you downloaded from the
7. open desmume. you're done.

#4 Re: Support » Import saves from version 11 to 13 » 2024-02-08 05:45:15

save states are incompatible between desmume BUILDS. therefore save states are incompatible between desmume versions.
give up.
save in-game and close the emulator. move the .dsv files between versions.

#6 Re: Compatibility » HELP: “The Save Data could not be accessed.” Message on ALL Auto saves » 2024-01-28 05:38:57

Then you're using a hacked or ancient version of desmume (or one made not by us)

#7 Re: Compatibility » HELP: “The Save Data could not be accessed.” Message on ALL Auto saves » 2024-01-25 22:52:56

There's no difference between auto save and manual save. I guess you are testing approximately 2 games, making it sound like it's more games than it is so it sounds like our problem instead of yours, and the one game that's failing is hacked or cheated or corrupted.

#8 Re: Support » I'm stupid. Lost my savestate » 2024-01-24 06:22:35

the backups save you from accidental loadstates, not accidental savestates. I've never heard anyone ask for that. I guess it could be redesigned to do that, too. But that's not how it works. Unless you backed up your important documents, they're gone.

#10 Re: Support » I need help with an issue I'm having with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney » 2024-01-16 06:34:44

Have you searched the internet and the wiki on this form for 1000s of pieces of lore about how to "blow" in desmume? Find mic samples, load them in desmume, and HOLD the mic hotkey. The mic input is not reliable

#11 Re: Support » Need help using 2 controllers on 2 instances on the same pc » 2024-01-16 06:34:07

You haven't configured the controls. If you had, you'd see it's possible to configure only one set of controls. I guess you expected desmume 1 to magically know to get input from controller 1 and desmume 2 to magically know to get input from controller 2? You're really confused.

use 2 different desmume directories and configure them independently; also use config > background input

#12 Re: General » Save problems with inazuma eleven » 2024-01-08 00:00:31

stop using an ancient or hacked version of desmume

#13 Re: Support » I accidentally pressed something and need help reverting it » 2024-01-08 00:00:14

if you want to VIEW TWO LCDs, use the VIEW menu and uncheck ONE LCD.

#14 Re: Support » Pokémon White 2 can’t create new save file. » 2024-01-05 05:14:11

you ignored the warning. you reap the consequences. there is no workaround. you broke the game. imo the game shouldn't let you do what you did, but it does. they figured you'd read the warning. it wasn't exactly 'fine print'...

#15 Re: Support » Pokemon Platinum on iOS - Spear Pillar Freeze » 2024-01-05 05:12:46

we don't make desmume ios. we dont support desmume ios.

#17 Re: Support » Can't save Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time » 2024-01-02 20:29:30

you have the save directory set to a nonexistent path. if you can't figure out how to fix your settings then you need to start over
1. backup all your current stuff
2. download latest desmume. dearchive to a directory in your desktop
3. open desmume and load the game
4. close desmume
5. look for the .dsv file it dropped. if you can't find it, look harder. ask for help if you need to. do not skip this step.
6. replace the .dsv with the one from your backup
7. never import/export again

#18 Re: Support » Upgraded to 0.9.13, can't access old saves » 2024-01-02 07:23:42

stop running desmume from c:\ or program files. dearchive all files to a directory on your desktop. due to windows overzealous security measures, all other ways of running software are considered advanced hacker level hacks.

#19 Re: Support » Can't save Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time » 2024-01-02 07:23:04

don't import and export. it's an advanced technique. it is not generally needed unless you are doing something advanced and are, yourself, advanced.

#20 Re: Support » Pokémon BW2 - How to load from internar game save, not from Load State » 2024-01-01 04:43:19

You need to repeat it if you want me to help. You're delusional, you don't recover "saved state" from "dsv". You may recover something like "game progress" from "dsv".

The internal memory (dsv) was clobbered when you loaded the state accidentally (you delusionally think you don't use savestates so you don't see how this is possible).

There is no way to recover it unless you have "(backups)" or actual hard drive backups.

You may have a dsv. Great, hooray, applause. But the dsv may be clobbered.

If you have a backup of a dsv prior to the clobbering simply close desmume and overwrite desmume's dsv with your backup.

Regrettably, I went into more detail than I prefer here, and made it sound enigmatic. It's really not. It's simple.

1. Desmume drops .dsv whenever it's closed containing the internal memory
2. Desmume drops .dsv whenever a state is loaded
3. Desmume loads .dsv when it's booted.

Those 3 piece of data are entirely enough for you to solve your problems yourself, supposing you have enough old copies of old date.

#21 Re: Support » Pokemon Black freeze after a year of not playing? » 2023-12-31 20:14:31

"can't seem to load it" is not an informative statement.

#22 Re: Support » Microphone samples » 2023-12-31 06:38:31

use these … micsamples

replace those with the ones you want to use and you can't go wrong.. but follow the guidance elsewhere about the sample format (guess that should be in notes.txt?)

#23 Re: Support » MAC Pokemon HeartGold displays weird unplayable graphics after restart » 2023-12-30 22:51:43

there is a setting that disables textures. you've picked that setting. keep hunting for it.

it's also possible your GPU is broken, but not likely...

sometimes the mac guy is here, he may have advice for you.

if you uninstall desmume, it will fix it, but you may lose data. don't do that unless youre confident in backing it up first

#24 Re: Support » MAC Pokemon HeartGold displays weird unplayable graphics after restart » 2023-12-30 21:39:07

load a different game completely and see if it's similarly wrecked

#25 Re: Support » Pokémon BW2 - How to load from internar game save, not from Load State » 2023-12-30 21:38:39

.dsv is the in-game battery save. That's different that savestate backups.

you say "I never use save states"
you also say "I made a mistake when pressing a key, which loaded me with a load state"

These statements are incompatible.
