A modified version of desmume does it in conjunction with the Hi-Res 3d but I have no idea if its possible to add it to Drastic ds, we'll have to see what Exophase says

First off, that's not a GCN game, it's Star Wars Episode l. Also, i'm pretty sure the widescreen hack is standard for Dolphin.

A widescreen hack makes sense for a console emulator that would originally work woth a wide screen display (like a tv). A DS was only ever really designed to desplay to a few very select screen sizes. I do not know if there would be much of a point even if it is possible.

Widescreen hacks can be glitchy in Dolphin but it's better than black bars.

You could output the second screen to another display, or make the aspect ratio of both screens wider so that there's no black bars.
If you mean how to code a widescreen hack, I don't know.

I was asking for DeSmuME's widescreen hack. If it truly exists, I doubt it will do much and break little, but at least I can play with it.

i can confirm said hack ar codes work well with DraStic, too. if only resizing screens non-uniformly was a little easier to edit, then it'd be perfect. :D
