DraStic is a Nintendo DS Emulator created by Exophase for ARM devices such as the OpenPandora.

* Readme and Changelog  
* Forum Thread  

For previous versions refer to the Drastic Repo Archive

The versions identify themselfs as "Version r_._._._p" on the menu screen.

* Outdated Previous 1.x Version Compatibility List


'By default, games are uncompressed to RAM. 128MB+ compressed games have issues with this CC Pandoras because of limited RAM. 256MB compressed games may work on 512MB systems such as the Rebirth or 1GHz Pandora. 512MB compressed games won't decompress on any system. Compressed games of any size are not dependent on RAM, so should work the same on all systems. You can enable an option to compress to file instead of RAM to get around this problem, but it will make games take longer to start.'

Adding to the list

Note: you can use the Drastic Wiki Helper application from the repo to automatically generate appropriate text to paste in the compatibility list below.

Choose a playability color that reflects a game's best playability state. Also include the clockspeed at which you ran it, for whichever Pandora version you tested. Please also indicate in the name of the Game whether the version is US/EU/JP, since compatibility may differ depending on regions. Include the unzipped ROM size in base-2 mebibytes (16MB, 64MB, 128MB, etc.). If available please indicate the game ID figure, too. The Game ID figure should be 8 characters long and can usually be found by pressing Y on the rom selection menu.

Don't post a redundant entry unless you are using a different Pandora model and the playability differs from an existing entry. If a game's playability gets worse (new bugs, new crashes) in a new DraStic version, update the entry and add that to notes. Please don't copy entries from the old list into this one unless you first re-test the game using a recent version of DraStic and update the color and notes as required.

Default frameskip is automatic and 4. Please record a comment if you use a different setting.

Playability Description
Fullspeed Games with a green background run at fullspeed and are fully playable from start to finish. If frameskip is required, add to notes.
Playable Games with a yellow background run slower than fullspeed, but are otherwise fully playable. Add problems/slowdowns to notes.
Incomplete Games with an orange background have playability issues and cannot be played from start to finish. This may include missing functionality (wifi) or game crashes. Add problems to notes.
Unplayable Games with a red background are unplayable. They either don't run at all, or don't get past the intro. Add any other oddities to notes.
N/A Games with a white background have not been fully tested. If you see one on this list, try it out and report back!

If you are inclined, post your forum username at the end of your notes so you can be contacted by Exophase about further debugging your problems.

50595943 Giana Sisters DS (E) r2.1.6.1p 8MiB 1Ghz 800Mhz Playable, but there are issues with the microphone in later levels and it should be disabled (to use the jump button instead) in order to use the bubble.
