Works great on DSI 

Dear all,

I've read some posts about choppy audio and stuff working with DSI. I have an DSI XL with R4I / DSI Firmware 1.4e and ScummVM works a lot better then when I use my DS Lite. I can now select software renderer (high quality) on every game without slowdowns.

Music only chops sometimes when loading another screen like in BASS. But apart from that it's perfect! Smile.

Is use ScummVM 1.1.0. Any news on a native DSI port? Since the DSI has the required memory for a lot of games that currently do not work.

Any news on a combined (single) build. So I have to use only one? Smile.

Anyway, thanks a lot for the port!

Regards,

Famke.

So far is seems that is is impossible for homebrew apps to access any of the DSi only features. It's a pity as the DSi has 4x as much memory.

As far as a single build goes, there's a student in the Google Summer of Code who is working on optimizing how ScummVM loads engines into memory on certain devices. That could lead to a single, or at least less builds.

So software on the R4I cannot use more than 4MB on a DSI? That's a bummer. Sad

I really hope it will be possible in the future.
I also hope that the combined engine you mentioned will be used for this port. Smile

you would be better off hoping for a iplayer/scds2 port that makes use of the onboard cpu and 32 megs of ram. a public release of the dsi common key and hacks is a LONG way off.
