Just recieved a neat link in my email from Nintendo. One of the new DSiWare downloadable games is a BASIC interpreter called
I really like the idea of saving your programs as QR codes which you can then share with others. This is just so cool on multiple levels. Anyone can now code on a Nintendo device!
Initial impressions with Raspbian. Everything seems to be either playable or faster than before.
MESS is noticably faster.
MAME was a LITTLE faster (it all depends on the game).
Gngeo (Neo Geo) was still playing at full speed.
Cave Story works fine as long as music is disabled.
Quake 3 Arena plays but sometimes crashes (as seen in the video)
Binaries are available below:
Let me know if something doesn’t work or if you need help. Hope everyone likes these! Thanks to those who helped put some of these binaries together!

Today I present the binaries for AdvanceMESS. The
Multi Emulator Super System. MESS can emulate somewhere around 250 different home consoles and computers. It’s not perfect in any sense, but it works for most consoles.
I have currently tested:
NES (some games are slow, but it works).
Genesis (slow but works)
SNES (couldn’t get it to work…yet)
Download MESS Binaries. Unzip MESS to the ~/MESS directory.
chmod 777 /dev/fb0
Put your console bios’s into mess/share/
advance/rom/ Put your console games into mess/share/advance/image/<console>/ (ie mess/share/advance/image/nes/
CD into mess/bin/
Run advmess with ./advmess
The first time it’s run it will generate a set of folders and files into ~/.advance
edit your ~/.advance/advmess.rc to include the proper display configuration
For HDMI try:
device_video_clock 5 – 50 / 15.62 / 50 ; 5 – 50 / 15.73 / 60
For NTSC TVs try:
device_video_clock 5 – 50 / 15.73 / 60
While still in the mess/bin directory, type ./advmess <console> -cart <filename>
./advmess nes -cart file.nes
This is one of the weirder setups I’ve tested, but once setup, it works. If you have any issues, let me know and I will try to help you.
P.S. I will NOT help you find console bios or roms. Please don’t ask.

Sometimes you just have to buy something nice for yourself. I saw this watch posted on Reddit Gaming and found a couple on eBay, so I decided to get one :-D.
