You're one of those emulator players that wanted to play online with a friend and weren't able to because your emulator didn't had the option or it didn't worked? I have the solution for your problem. Follow these steps and you'll be able to play with your friends with your DS emulator!

What you'll need:
2. WinPcap and BIOS/Firmware for DeSmuMe. (Provided above)​
3. High Speed Ethernet Wired Connection.​

Setup:
1. Install WinPcap
a. After downloading everything that I provided above, extract the folder and start by installing WinPcap 4.1.2​
b. Make sure to tick "Automatic Start at Boot time".​
2. Install DeSmuMe
a. If you have DeSmuMe installed in your computer, replace your installed version with the one provided in the link above.​
b. Run DeSmuMe and go to Config / WIFI Settings and set up like in the picture:​

Note: Your computer might not show the same exact Bridge network adapter as mine. Just choose the one that says ethernet or realtek, it should work
c. Go to Config / Emulation Settings and set up like in the picture:​

For the ARM BIOS and Firmware, make sure to select the ones from the package provided in the link above!​
1st BIOS = BIOS 9​
2nd BIOS = BIOS 7​
3. Nintendo WiFi
a. Load any game that has WiFi capability and go into WiFi Settings:​

b. Click on WiFi Settings:​

c. Erase any connections available and start one by doing the following:​

Does this allow you to play your friends that are on ds? Or just emu to emu?

We can do this, but R4's don't support IR.

I'm using an Ethernet cord directly to my router, but still it doesn't show the correct network card in the options.

It won't show the same exact network card as mine in the options. You will have to choose one of the options that says ethernet. Forgot to mention that in the guide, sorry!

Pokemon :tongue:



Were you via Ethernet? It doesn't work via WiFi. Also, did you installed WinPcap?

Yes I was connected via ethernet but all the network cards listed did not work.

That's really weird. Did you linked the right BIOS' through emulation settings? This has been working for me and others as well, can't see why it wouldn't work for you :/
