MarcaDS is an arcade emulator.
It use the same principle than Mame but it's not using its code,Mame is too huge
for our little DS :), but it's just my opinion.
To use this emulator, you must have compatibles ROMS with NO COMPRESSION ZIP format.
Do not ask me about ROMS, I don't have them. A search with Google will certainly help
you.

This version is FOR USE ONLY on MK2 or MK3. It use the special functionnality of the SD
card to store the games.
I have fully tested it on MK2 (thanks Neoflash for it ;) ) with Menu V0.4 and V0.6beta.
Sadly, I can't make it playable with the Menu V0.5, I don't know why.
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
How to use:

Unzip MarcaDS.nds in a MARCADS directory in the root directory on your SD / MMC card.
Be careful, the directory MUST BE in the root directory of your SD / MMC card.
Put your arcade roms (ZIP format with NO COMPRESSION option) in this directory too.

That's all, MarcaDS can now be execute :) !

When the emulator starts, press A to pass the two intros and use Up/Down to select game,
then use A to start the game selected.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Controls (both Player 1 and 2) :
 * Direction pad : the joystick ...
 * A : insert coins :)
 * B : Fire (if the game need it, like Pengo)
 * X : Fire (if the game need it, like Ping Pong)
 * START : start game

Thanks a lot !  :-*
Just remember, it does not work on emulator, just on a real DS with MK2 (or perhaps MK3, I don't have one).
SO, you must use such thing to test it.

rogerpoco, the readme file explain everything to setup MarcaDS  8).
If you think something is not very easy , please tell me, I will modify the readme file.
Also, when a rom is launched, it is like on a real hardware, so you must wait a little  ::sm-01::

Okay,I am so deeply into the NDS now,that i don't think I'll ever recover.
BUT-The arcades are my first love.
Please continue work on this.Even if all it is,is all it'll ever be(I'm sure it's not,but I'm just sayin')its GREAT.

 :o  Oh My.

The only thing that kept me from getting an Arkanoid cabinet as the first in my home collection was that it was only available as a conversion kit(I may be wrong)and I really wanted an original cabinet for my first.
I settled on a 2-player Super-Off Road,with the Track Pack,and am currently trying to figger out if I can put the original game's board in the cabinet,and swap the wiring at-will,but I'm not sure.


Anyway,Wow.

Oh-and my"collection"is still up to one. :)
