Local Multiplayer in 2018?

Postby Koota » Mon Jul 09, 2018 5:32 am

Is it possible to play wireless between two devices in 2018? (two drastic owners, playing between two smarthphones not pc /ds ; drastic/ds ; drastic/pc).

Wi-fi is most certainly impossible so i wanted to ask you if local multiplayer between two smartphones that use the same version of drastic and the same rom was possible :D

There is no plan for it
I will miss Emuparadise ROMs

Nintendo DS' Wi-Fi feature is poorly documented at the moment. Until this changes, expect no improvements on Wi-Fi emulation on DraStic.

We get more "When is multiplayer/WiFi coming" posts than actual problems or topics, so I'd say it's THE most asked for feature.

The posts are usually one of 3 types:

1) Just asking. Usually accompanied with something along the lines of "me and friends want to [Play Mario Kart, trade/battle Pokemon, etc] but can't."

2) Proposing that DraStic copies what other multiplayer emulators do (4 out of 5 times, they refer to My Boy!), even though DS multiplayer is an entirely different challenge altogether. (My Boy just emulates a physical Link Cable, which is much easier to do than emulate actual multiplayer.)

3) Proposing that DraStic uses code from this other DS emulator for PC that has experimental multiplayer. Code that DraStic can't just take and use because DraStic is closed source and needs to use 100% original code. (If it was open source it could, but that's an entirely different discussion altogether.)
