Just to let you know , for a valid review you must review all games(36)/apps(16) unless those that you are unable to do so.  ~sm-34.gif~
Currently you've got 4 out of 52 entries  ~sm-79.gif~.gif

Use an NDS emulator. Note that a number of games still won't be reviewable as they count on having a flash card with SD card interface... which no emulator emulates at this time.

Are you talking about the NDS now? I added GBAMP emulation to my DS emulator back in 2006, to let homebrew ROMs read and write from/to an emulated FAT16-formatted CompactFlash card. I later donated the GBAMP emulation code to DeSmuMe.
The interface for the M3 and other devices can't be that much different compared to the GBAMP.

Huh - I'm using DeSmuMe 0.9.5 (latest in the Ubuntu repos), and don't see anything about that. I'll dig into it a little more. It's probably something that requires you to edit the config files by hand.  ::sm-02::

EDIT: You not only have to use a command line option (which isn't documented, just mentioned in passing on the faq), you have to take the files included with the NDS app and turn it into a fake FAT filesystem image.  ~sm-73.gif~.gif

So how can you do a valid if you don't have a Wii since homebrews are not fully playable with an emulator ?

You don't.  :'(

I don't think anybody will be reviewing EVERY entry... just many/most of them. Who has ALL of these?
N64 + N64 Myth
Wii hacked for homebrew
PSP hacked for homebrew
NDS with flash card + SD/CF interface

Its simple ,
[1]Divide the entries by platforms.
[2]Review as many divisions as you like.

An example would be : Review all PSP APP & PSP GAME entries,or all NDS APP & NDS GAME entries.
Of course if you want to have higher chances of winning , there's no other way but reviewing all entries.  ^-^

An example of what you shouldn't do , is this thread.  ::sm-07.gif::

I see you only tried apps and games for PSP. So, why don't you try my PSPDictionary (http://www.neoflash.com/forum/index.php/topic,6300.0.html) and Portable Bubble (http://www.neoflash.com/forum/index.php/topic,6289.0.html)? ;)

Ok, I didn't know that. Sounds like a strange solution. The way I did it was to have GBAMP emulation enabled by default and treat the directory of the currently running ROM as the root directory of the emulated CompactFlash card.

From reading some threads in their forum, it was that way up to 0.9.4, then they changed it. Their support for that area is apparently in a state of flux. I've gotten the svn code, which is supposed to auto-patch the roms with a compatible form of the DLDI. I'll be trying that out tomorrow.

No need for such shameless self-promotion  ^-^

How about we let the judges decide instead of getting input from the contestants...? It's really not fair to tell judges that your own application is the best in a category, disregarding every other entry.
