Looking for a .nds or .gba exporter

Post by jimbobert94 » Sat Jul 27, 2013 6:33 am

I've searched google and the forums for a bit now, no luck. I wouldn't consider myself a beginner to programming, but this type of thing isn't my forte.

Wanna rip out sprites? You better off with already ripped ones, since ripping them is only half the business, the other half is getting them paletted properly.

Also, I dunno however you were googling for it, finding related tools took me roughly 10 seconds. http://wahackpokemon.com/en/download/tools-gba

Thanks for the response. I was googling for already developed love2d .nds or .gba exporters (i.e. just like blender). To make what I'm looking for more clear, I want to be able to call a command like 'love2nds /path/to/game/ ndsgame.nds".

Do you mean you want to convert your .love code file to an .nds file so you can run it on a nintendo?

Because that's not going to be possible.

He's talking about an exporter, I assume he wants to extract the files from a .nds to get the sprites and/or sounds.

Here's my situation for further clarity. I'm getting a r4i card where I can load .nds roms and play them. I want to convert my .love file OR directory containing the game, and produce a single .nds file that I can then load on the r4i cartridge. I'm sure this is possible Many other programs have one, why not love?

I do not believe there is currently a way to run love2d games on the nintendo ds.

There has to be someone in this community that knows how to go about doing this. I'll look into it, but I mostly work around web development type stuff. Games are just a hobby of mine. If anyone would be willing to bust this out, I'd be down.

The Nintendo DS has a 67 MHz processor. That's not anywhere close to powerful enough to do what LÖVE does.

Also, less double-posts and meaningless image macros please. :)
