Vassal on a Nintendo DS !!!

Well,

I consider that if java can run on a nintendo DS .. then Vassal could do it too !!

Just look at the homebrew ..

Looks neat, if someone wants to try it. I have no Nintendo DS.

Joel,

I just have tested and it works ... (i sware i do not have stolen my son's DS console !!!)

You only have to select a class file and you can launch it by and user interface ...

Now my problem is to do the same with Vassal !!! :?

If i take the manual installation package 3.0... how to convert this in class files ??? I have plenty of jar files ...

The JARs are just ZIP files with some extra metadata in the META-INF
directory. All you'd need to do is unzip them. to get the class files.

The roots of all the JARS should be merged together, but you must leave
all of the structure within each JAR the way it is.

You are welcome !!!

I'm also a simple Vassal User like you ... :D

Well i join here the file directory picture after the massive unzip process :

(i have a R4 Revolution Flash ...)

1) The Java DS requires a class file as a launcher and there's nothing like this at the root of the Flash Card

2) I don't know if the Java DS can manage a file breakdown structure .. because of 1)

I have installed DSLinux ... all working (linux) but the wiki say :

Is it possible to run all Linux software?
To port an application, the source code must be available and be compiled as a binary for DSLinux and the DS processor. If it's a text app that runs under the console you will probably be able to port it but for graphical apps it's improbable due to memory constraints.

How much memory does a DS have, anyway?

Not sure but I know you can buy Ram packs to go in GBA slot, though I think it's possible to dump the info onto the flash cart, no idea how though :P
