Dicewars DS is a multiplayer version of a popular Flash based strategy game (http://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/dice/dice.html
) for Nintendo DS handheld console. Your task is to conquer the whole game field by rolling dice. Each turn you may attack any opponent's territory from one of your adjacent territories as long as your territory has more than one die on it. When attacking, If you roll more than the defender, you win.
* HOW TO RUN
Please run on real hardware if possible. Pretty much any flash adapter able to run homebrew application is good enough, and also booting with wmb works. If you must use an emulator (not recommended), try No$gba:
The multiplayer / network game mode is still considered experimental and may have stability issues. However, if your connection drops or the network game crashes, you may re-join back to the same game (the server will play your turn passively meanwhile). There's currently no way to configure your wifi settings in the options menu, instead the game searches for previously saved WFC settings from the DS firmware - if you've played any of the commercial games using wifi, this should be sufficient.
The network game requires at least 2 players to start and is currently accepting up to 7 players at once. A grey name in the game lobby means player wants to wait for more players, and a black player name indicates the player is already ready to start the game.
