XtenDSCoder have released a new DS Game maker for the DS:
Developing Games for the Nintendo DS has been difficult. Many programs have been released for the PC including Gamemaker which make games for Microsoft Windows, and another for the Xbox, but I have not found a simple program for the Nintendo DS which requires no code knowledge at all.
XtenDS changes that. If you want to make games for your own Nintendo DS but you don't know where to start then you need this program.
Basically, XtenDS is a gamemaker for the Nintendo DS. Instead of learning complex code and following complicated guides you can use XtenDS which cuts out all the legwork.
Because of the difficulty of creating such a project, and the fact that it has not been done before has made this project slow, but this promising release should spur me on to enable more and more possibilities!
What is best, is the fact that XtenDS is free. And not only is it free, it is fast! On average it takes XtenDS less than 1 second to compile a single game!
XtenDS is currently still being developed. So don't expect quake on 2 screens yet.... expect text based adventure games!
Because I haven't had time to create an installer (I plan to using InnoSetup or something), You will have to put XtenDS in the right folder. Don't worry, it isn't rocket science, it's just a matter of copying the files from the ZIP into this folder:
If you do not put it in here it will not work.
So copy the files into there, and you can double click "Invisionsoft XtenDS.exe" to make a game.
The interface is pretty self explanatory, anything which is disabled is not finished. Like I said XtenDS is not done and don't expect much at this stage.
