More or less a port of SMSAdvance to the NDS now under the name of S8DS, as it's a SEGA 8-bit emulator for the DS.

NGPAdvance V0.13 July 2008
New emulator! Woho! Well just like the Wonder Swan emulator this is really slow. It doesn't support any kind of saving so some games won't work correctly or at all. Other games have graphical glitches and are really slow. Some games doesn't work and it's really slow. It is indeed slow but there are a few things you can do to speed it up a little bit. You can turn off the Z80 for some games (experiment when to turn it on/off) and you can lower the clock of the TLCS-900 cpu.
*First release most things implemented except flash/save..
