WHAT IS THE DS-XTREME?
DS-X is a SLOT-1 (DS Game Card Slot) NDS ROMs backup / loading device with a completely integrated set of features all incorporated into one single compact device. There are no additional passme or programming devices needed. It works straight out of the box.
DS-Xtreme Official Features List:
- One single unified device, no need for GBA Cart, external memory or passme/flashme
- Extreamly high DS ROM compatibility.
- Functions as a flash cart, compatible with homebrew, media and other image files
- Plug ‘n Play, NO need for PC drivers or software = Simple and Fast file transfer
- Intuitively designed custom operating system which is fully upgradeable
- Included 4GBit (512Mbyte) onboard flash memory
- Hardware design compatible with all DS consoles
- Card is the same size as original DS cartridge – does NOT stick out!
- Custom engineered components such as a High-Speed USB 2.0 mini-B connector and full sized EEPROM.
There is an industry standard in-built USB miniB connector and supplied cable for simple and immediate connection to any computer (independant of platform or operating system PC, Mac OS, Linux etc.). Since it is seen as standard mass storage device, the DS-Xtreme works across multi-platforms, and file transfers to and from the device are as simple as drag and drop.
There are also two full colour ultra bright LEDs incorporated into the device for added fun and effect.
The unit is currently running our primary version software, so it only contains the bare backbone of what DS-Xtreme will eventually be able to provide for the users. The beauty of DS-X custom OS is the multi-faceted levels of integration and assimilation that are possible for homebrew and the open source communities. DS-X intention has always been to release the power and flexibility of our software to the very active and talented open source community. Advanced scripting engine and its integration with the skin is a prime example of basic core features in place for full customisation and development.
For the initial release the following basic core sections.
From here you can run all your favourite homebrew apps. The DS-Xtreme is revolutionary in that it has the ability to run any homebrew apps without the need to recompile. ?With little time to get the plethora of homebrew developers to port their software over to this new hardware standard in the industry, we decided to help out by implementing an ingenious piece of code which enables most home brew apps, using the standard libFat drivers for other older generation devices, to run seamlessly with the DS-Xtreme. Of course we will be releasing our own drivers to ensure that future compilations of homebrew apps utilize the full potential of our hardware.
The basic music player is able to play MP3 and OGG files. Currently it can read ID3v1 tags. Music files are automatically scanned and organized into a music library. The user can then pick an artist, genre, album or song title and play it.? There is also shuffle and repeat functionality.
Settings menu has several sections.
Instant boot - simply put, instant boot allows you to boot straight into your favorite homebrew app every time u power up your unit. The OS is bypassed and the last selected app will automatically load. In is important to note that in order to re-enter into the OS you must hold down the A button while booting
A second setting is dancing LEDs. Again this was simply added as a demonstration of some of the fun stuff that can be done with the leds. Turn it on, dim the lights and put on your favorite song. Be careful not to stare for prolonged periods into the LEDS they are extremely bright.
There is also the static led boot color setting where you can choose to set either led to what ever color or brightness you wish. This setting will be saved once you exit the setting screen. Please note that the LEDs at full power can waste battery power. We recommend a setting of one single color and below 50 for normal day to day use. The default led setting has negligible effect on battery life.
As a basic guide and introduction the above points highlight the main features of the new, revolutionary DS-Xtreme 4Gb. We hope that you enjoy using and experimenting with the unit as much as we have enjoyed developing it! In time more and more software apps and features will be added, making it a truly unique, one-of- a-kind device, look out for the first series of updates scheduled for release in the coming weeks.
