Edited by Lukward Thomason, Alexander Avdeev
You are watching VisiHow! This is a tutorial on how to set up and use a Nintendo DS emulator in Windows 7.
The first thing that you need to do is download an emulator. One of the best free emulators is DeSmuME that can be downloaded from http://desmume.org/download/
. Once you have downloaded the emulator, make sure that you have Nintendo DES game ROM files on your computer.
Open the containing folder of the emulator by double-clicking it. A window will open.
Double-click the DeSemuME*.exe file to open a new window. The asterisk means that there might be other characters after "DeSemuMe".
Change the size of the window by left-clicking and holding the the corner of the window and then dragging it away.
Click "Config" to configure the controls.
Click "Control Config" from the drop-down menu to open a new window. In the new window, there will be two sections, each with two columns. The left column shows the buttons on the Nintendo DS controller, and the right column gives the ability to customize the controls.
Click the second column once. Press the corresponding key on the keyboard. For example, for the Nintendo "UP" button, the Up arrow key on the keyboard is used. The button will be set up, and the next step will be selected automatically. Continue with all of the keys if necessary.
Click "OK" to confirm the changes. The mouse cursor is set up as the default controller for the Nintendo stylus. The lower part of the emulator window will respond to the mouse gestures, as if the Nintendo stylus is pressed on the screen of the Nintendo DS.
Click "File" to open a game file.
Click "Open ROM" to open a new window. In this window, look for the game file. It can be anywhere on your PC, depending upon to where you copied the game file from the original medium. In this case, the game files are on the desktop.
Click the NDS file. The NDS file extension stands for the Nintendo DS game. In this case, the file is "Castlevania - Order of Ecclesia.nds".
Click "Open" to load the game.
This concludes the tutorial on how to set up and use the Nintendo DS emulator in Windows 7. Thank you for watching VisiHow! If you have any other comments or questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
