Port of LOVE for NDS? Is it possible?

Post by MrMcTiller » Mon Nov 26, 2018 3:46 pm

I've seen the ports for the Switch and for the 3DS, but is there one for NDS? If not, how would I go about making it?

Porting it 1:1 is near impossible due to the 4mb of ram the nds has. Implementing even a small subset of the api would requre a full rewrite because most libraries used by LÖVE have no nds ports.

In short its simply not practical.

So, not even for the DSi XL? (It has 16MB)

LÖVE is efficient but that's about what an empty LÖVE games uses I think, if you want to develop anything for the DSi you're better off doing something more low level or using something that's built for that platform.
