DeSmuME (formerly known as YopYop DS) is a Free/Open source Nintendo DS emulator for GNU/Linux, Mac OS and Windows. Its name is derived from emu (which is short for emulator), DS and ME. The original emulator itself was in French (with user translations to English and other languages). It supported many homebrew Nintendo DS ROM demos, as well as a handful of Wireless Multiboot demo ROMs. YopYop156 stopped development on DeSmuME at version 0.3.3 due to a change of laws regarding emulation in France, which was later discovered to be an April Fool's joke. After receiving feedback he eventually decided to quit anyway, and the source code was released. Several developers initially released unofficial builds of DeSmuME based on YopYop original code. These various developers later united and merged their work, resulting in version 0.5.0 as their first release. DeSmuME supports save states, the ability to increase the size of the screen and it supports filters to improve image quality. DeSmuME also supports microphone use on Windows and Linux ports, as well as direct video and audio recording. The emulator also features a built-in movie recorder.
