I just thought I would post a notice here that the best DS emulator out there just got a little better with the release of version 0.9.9. Perhaps most notable for many people is that this version boasts the biggest emulation speedup this emulator has seen in a while. So if you have tried DS emulation before and it didn't go fast enough for you, you might want to give this a spin.
As a quick tip, if you want to get the biggest speed boost you should enable the dynamic recompiler by:
1) Under the config menu, choose "emulation settings"
2) Check the box for "Use dynamic recompiler"
Of course this big update happens right when I am nearly done making my DS Tileset maps. Anyway, I hope this new version can be useful to some of you.
