[TUTORIAL] Guide to Enable WIFI Feature On DeSmuMe v.0.9.7
« on: Friday April 01, 2011, 03:41:07 AM »
This tutorial was started on April 1st 2011.

Its about enabling WIFI feature for NDS Games playable on DeSmuMe v.0.9.7 if you have broadband connection using Wired-LAN (Ethernet LAN Cable Broadband) without any WIFI router or access point; not possible on USB Broadband Dongle, or Dial Up via telephone cable; maybe possible via wireless connection but I'm not covering it. As long as you have Ethernet Wired-LAN Connection and Ethernet LAN hardware in your computer (PC/Laptop) as well as using router; it should work. I first learn about this thanks to Lune's tutorial thread in GBATemp.net, all credits goes to him/her for bringing it up. If you are using an internet connection method other than Ethernet LAN Cable, please refrain from trying as it won't work.

For Win XP users, run the program as normal, for Win Vista and Win 7 users run the programs in ADMIN Mode. Mac and Linux.....well....don't ask me about it as I don't have either program. I have confirmed that the below method work on both my Windows XP Home SP3 Laptop and on Windows 7 Home SP1 Laptop.



What you need:
1. DeSmuMe WIFI Package (Choose 1)

    1. DeSmuMe v.0.9.6 WIFI with WinPcap v.4.1.1            : Download Here

3. High Speed Ethernet Wired-LAN (Broadband) Connection
 
Optional:
4. Save File Convertor                : Offline Save File Convertor from Evan Dixon
                                                       Shunyweb Online Save File Convertor

                                                      UniqueGeeks Save File Convertor
    * Note:
      Use this only if you want to convert your game save file from DeSmuMe type to use on your Console's Cartridge, or if
      you want to download contents for your game save file from your Console Cartridge via DeSmuMe.

Pre-Setup:
1. Installing WinPcap
    After downloading the packages, run the program, make sure to tick "Automatic Start at Boot time",
    also make sure that its marked as "exception" in your FireWall Settings.
                       Note:
                                   Do not ever disable your FIREWALL and ANTIVIRUS !!!
                                   Unless you don't mind getting virus/trojan/malware all over your computer. Which is more precious and
                                   important? Your computer and its files or playing games? Just give the WinPcap exception and do the
                                   same to DeSmuMe. Give both FULL CONTROL/ADMIN RIGHT under PROPERTIES in the SECURITY option.

2. Setting Up the DeSmuMe
    Run the DeSmuMe in the package;
    # Large Image in the Spoiler:   
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    a. Go to CONFIG and choose WIFI SETTINGS, then tick INFRASTRUCTURE and then press OK
         
        As for the bottom INFRASTRUCTURE SETTINGS, it depend on what hardware you have in your computer,
        so you have to test which one will work for you, should be the one for Ethernet Wired LAN that will work.

    b. Go to CONFIG and choose EMULATION SETTINGS, then tick as shown in the image below and press OK
        (Note: ticking the Boot From Firmware Like NDS is not necessary unless you want to do step 2.c which is optional)
         
        As for the ARM Bios 7, ARM Bios 9, and firmware Bin, make sure to enable/choose the files in the package.
        Press the " .... " and locate the 3 files in the package provided.

    c. Optional step (This step is not necessary unless you want to mimic loading like an NDS Console.)
        # Skip this step if you don't want to "Boot From Firmware Like an NDS" console.
        c.1. Go to CONFIG and choose FIRMWARE SETTINGS, fill it up with your data, and then press OK
               Make sure the data you add in this step is the same with the data added in the c.3 step below.
               

         c.2. To do this step, make sure that you have tick the BOOT FROM FIRMWARE (LIKE THE NDS)
                at the FIRMWARE option under the EMULATION SETTINGS (see image in step 2.b.)
               
                When you first load a game, the above image will be shown, tap the small icon at the
                bottom center that looks like an open NDS console.

         c.3. Next, tap the green icon, fill up your username, birthday, and choose the color you want.
               
               Make sure that the database you enter in this step is the same with what you enter in step
               2.c.1. Otherwise you'll get an un-matching ID. Do make sure to match the database before
               moving from an older DeSmuMe to a newer version. Otherwise you'll suffer un-matching ID.
               
               
               

               After filling up the details as shown in the above, choose Confirm/Ok to Shut Down
               and you will need to reboot/reload the game that you want to playing.
             
Setting Up the In-Game WIFI    
    Load any game that have WIFI capability in it. And go to the WIFI SETTING.
    a. Go to NINTENDO WIFI CONNECTION SETTINGS, and choose it.
         

    b. Now in the next page, you should see as below the box on the left marked as NONE/READY, choose it.
        See and do step c.
         

        After that choose SEARCH FOR AN ACCESS POINT to acquire the SOFTAP. It will automatically do step d.
         
         

    c. Now you should see as shown below, choose TEST CONNECTION.
         

    d. If you did the above correctly, then you should see these 2 images as shown below.
        If you get testing fail, re-check the EMULATION SETTING and WIFI SETTING.
         
         

    e. If you see the above result, then congratulation you have enabled DeSmuMe's WIFI Capability

Possible Trouble Shooter for Error Code 20104 and 52000 DeSmuMe WiFi for v.0.9.6 and v.0.9.7:
Here are all the possible solution to your connectivity problem. If none of the below possible trouble shooter work, most likely you will never be able to get the feature to work due to your internet subscription package type.

1. Try replacing the firmware.dfc in the DeSmuMe folder with either one of this:
    a. Firmware.dfc Option 1 : Click Here Option 1
    b. Firmware.dfc Option 2 : Click Here Option 2
(Thanks to : John3 a.k.a John2461)

2. If some of you are using VISTA or WIN 7;
    a. There is DEP (Data Exchange Protection) security in the system. To by-pass it for DeSmuMe and any other
        software/program.
          * Right Click on the DeSmuMe icon on your Desktop
          * Run as Admin
        -or-
          * Right Click on the DeSmuMe icon on your Desktop
          * Properties
          * Security
          * Edit Permission
          * Full Control
     b. Move the "biosnds7.bin", "biosnds9.bin", and "firmware.bin" into the Firmware Folder before assigning them
         as instructed in the tutorial.
         (Thanks to : Insanecrazy07)

3. You might want to attempt editing the DNS inside the WFC Setup config to : 4.2.2.2 4.2.2.3 4.2.2
4. Go to Network Connection, manually changing the bridging from PPOE to PPOA (or the other way round)
5. You might want to attempt editing the IP inside WFC Setup to : 192.168.110 or changing the last 2 digit to
    any number in the "10" multiplication; eg. 192.168.120 ,etc.
6. Locate in your Control Panel's Firewall, for any possibilities of a setting that might block the WinPcap (eg. disable
    SPI Firewall). There's no need to disable your firewall !!!
7. Make sure your LAN Connection is set as HOME Network, not work or public network.
8. If you get Firmware.dfc,BiosArm7.dfc, and BiosArm9.dfc, image error, go to PATH SETTING under the DeSmuMe's
    Config, and self assign the files/folders. Or alternatively, self replace the firmware.dfc with the one provided above.
9. Assign STATIC IP ADDRESS for routers that has both ethernet cable port and antena(WIFI anthena).
10. Go to DeSmuMe main screen and press CTRL-R to reset your settings, or perform a RESTART computer.
11. Make sure the WinPcap (rpcapd.exe) and DeSmuMe are in the exception list of your Firewall and Antivirus.
12. Try to clean up your network adapters. Uninstall/disable all the VPN software like Hamachi, Tunngle, VirtualBox, and VMWare
      Workstation, etc. and reboot your computer. You can also try to make your network adapter that is connected to the internet to the
      primary one. To do this, go to the list of your network adapters and press ALT then click "advanced" --> "advanced settings"
      highlight the adapter and put it to the top with the arrows. (Thanks to: Ultravore)
13. If you have trouble getting the GTS, PGL and Game Sync to work between 2 friends. One of you (or both) may try to change your
      router settings: enable UPnP is a must, beacuse a DS needs all the UDP ports forwarded for the connection to work (this info is
      available on the Nintendo troubleshooting website). If you still have problems, you may have to change your router.
      (Thanks to: Shadow-5471)
14. Make sure to check if you computer is running on x64 bit ot x32/x86 bit.
15. Make sure your network is set to use LAN Broadband (Local Area Connection) not Wireless.
16. Make sure you are the only computer connected to the router-modem.

Side Note Regarding Save File Conversion    
If you want to use the downloaded WIFI stuffs on your NDS Console, simply convert the DeSmuMe's save file into the appropriate save file type for your cart, and name it the same as your game rom's name. It should work like a charm as I've already tested it too. If you have an on going game play on your console and do not have WIFI router/access point in your home, you can also make use of the above to download contents over this feature by converting your save file to DeSmuMe's save file type using the convertor, run it like the above, and convert it back into your cart's save file type once you've done the download.

2. Given that some of those who come to use this topic don't seems to understand that I don't support wireless connectivity, however
    there're several posts made by nmp0401 in pages 56 - 58 for that purpose. Read them if you must.
3. Also given the numerous similar and repetitive problems that kept popping in this topic, I find that it's a waste of my time responding
    to the same issues over and over. I suggest those of you having problem to go read the over 60 pages worth of posts. It shouldn't
    take an hour to skim read through them all than wait for my response. The solution you probably looking for is sure to be among
    those 60 pages.

You don't need to have WIFI router or access point. All you need is an Ethernet LAN connection and the programs above. That's basically it. I don't have WIFI router either, and was thinking of buying a router. But as in the images I post above, I show that the DeSmuMe can go online and make use of the Nintendo Wireless Network Connection feature. Something that No$GBA cannot do even until now. And this save me my money by not needing to buy a router or access point. Simply make use of the LAN broadband connection.

I had wanted to update my Yugioh! 2011's forbidden card list for use on my R4DS. I found this method 2 days ago from GBATemp. I was able to do it by utilizing the save file convertor as well. No one seems to pay attention to the original thread as it was sketchy explaination. I simply made a re-make tutorial that is more user friendly.

@Rizki,

I can see from your image, that you're running through a USB dongle. As I've mentioned above, you must use Wired - LAN, not Wireless. I've tried using USB 3.5G broadband dongle with all hardware that I have, its a no go that's why I mentioned it clearly in blue.

Indosat (3G / 3.5G / M2) etc. uses Wireless USB Dongle via SIM Card. It won't work.  You have to run it through LAN (Local Area Network) cable broadband connection. Say...Telkom Speedy/ TelkomNet/ CBN/Firstmedia/IndoNet, etc. that utilize the LAN cable (ethernet) and run through your Ethernet hardware setting.

If you don't want or not allow to subscribe a LAN broadband, then maybe you can play at your nearest internet cafe which uses LAN connection. Simply install into their system (if they give permission) for the WinPcap installation, all the rest is set through the DeSmuMe program.

I'm using wired-ethernet LAN cable broadband network for the above. You can subscribe through your local Telkom branch for an unlimited monthly packet. The monthly subscription is the same as for your Indosat 3G. And its more stable too, compared to your wireless usb dongle.

PS: Also make sure your INFRASTRUCTURE SETTING is set to an ethernet hardware, in your case is Realtex Family.

So, one did really develop an unofficial desmume with wi-fi.Really nice tutorial, prectorian.But, it's really really not advisable to use the wi-fi with emulators.The emulators give out a single code for ALL emulators world-wide.That'll lead to nintendo's action against emulator's developers.I think that's the reason stated by desmume for disabling the wi-fi in 0.9.7

P.S: Pokemon games become very slow during saving when GTS is accessed more times.I've personally experienced it.

what's the "firmware.dfc" file, prectorian? It's my first time seeing it.

Max,

I'm not aware about what the DeSmuMe team said about WIFI as their original don't carry the WIFI setting in the Config, but this DeSmuMe that can run WIFI is the SVN version. I got both version of v.0.9.7. If you want to see the group that make that SVN versions for all emulator, look at this site: http://www.down.emucr.com/

As for playing in GTS for Pokemon...well, lets face it....emulators are slow...so its not much of a difference anyway. But so far, the 'slowness' has been consistent on my laptop before and after.

What I think from looking at their team's developing post, they develop continuous updates to the source code and making it better and better each time. The current DeSmuMe SVN version of v.0.9.7 is r3962, I just updated the package.

About the firmware.dfc, that file show up after you alter the emulation settings under the config option to use the firmware.bin, arm bios 7, and arm bios 9, when you first run it, it will auto create that firmware.dfc file, and is registered also into the desmume configure setting.sys.

As for 'emulator single code' that I really don't know. But if you're referring to emulator's ability to generate 'friend code', I think (just guessing) that is randomly generated when you first start a game and save it. Otherwise....would it not be strange that all of us are using a same source of rom...such as pokemon white, but have different friend code? Then again, like I said, I'm not too sure about this, as I'm not an expert on this matter.

The current DeSmuMe SVN version of v.0.9.7 is r3962, and is still getting continuous updating; the one in the above package is r3947. I'm going to update it with the new one later tonight.

Thanks for clearing up the ".dfc" thing.And the code I was talking about is Nintendo WFC code.It's said somewhere in their wiki that Desmume allots the single code for wi-fi emulation and so nintendo may doubt the access of their servers by so many people with same code.I too don't get it that much.By the way, just a small tip: In the emulation settings, Also tick the "Boot from firmware(like the NDS)" option.

I've checked it personally.The firmware you provided is the best one I've got my hands on till now.You can customize your Desmume like a DS.Can have your birthday set and what's more? The game is purely playable even by doing that.If you like, I can post the screenshots.

I've not tried creating 2 save file on DeSmuMe to compare and see if the friend code generated is the same or not, but I do am running the pokemon save file converted from my R4 cart for use on the DeSmuMe, cause I don't have wifi router, so I have to use DeSmuMe to get through wifi for online downloadings such as access GTS. So I'm pretty sure my friend code is specifically my own. So no worries for me about that if what the DeSmuMe team are scared about.

As for boot firmware like NDS, that would be even better approach, but using the setting like previewed is also more than enough. Cause how fast you can run the emulator is more about your computer hardware and speed, the lagging is not because of the rom or emulator. However, by naming it to your gamer's name and entering your birthday, could well also be a good approach to generating your own specific friend code. *Guessing*

PS: got to go for now....MotoGP is airing live....be back in few hours... :)

After you read this, could I ask you to check if "Mystery Gift" option is working for you with desmume without enabling "Boot like NDS"?

Max,

As per your request, I've posted an update for the above Preview Proof Section. You can see that the Mystery Gift Connection for Pokemon Black and White can be achieved with or without the "Boot Firmware Like NDS" in the 1st post. 10 mystery gift connection images just for you. ;)

As for C-Gear, Game Sync, and Battle, its not possible at the moment because pokemon-gl.com is still under construction, so I can only establish a connection but cannot get in. You need to first make an account in pokemon-gl.com to get a Digital ID number, do a Game Sync. Only then you can use the C-Gear and Battle Connection features. Maybe once its up and running, I can test it again.

And....I've updated the DeSmuMe from r3962 to r3963. I just saw it updated in the emuCr.com site.


If you can't do it, then you can do the below method in the spoiler:

Error code 52000 = WEP key input is wrong/wrong input of IP address
Source of info: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/results.jsp?error_code=52000&system=DS&locale=en_US

Note:
1. in Win 7, make sure to set the firewall to allow use of winpcap
2. make sure to run the desmume in admin mode
3. make sure the SoftAP is set to auto obtain IP address and auto obtain DSN address
4. make sure to use LAN cable connection not USB or wireless
5. make sure to set the Infrastructure Setting to use the Ethernet hardware

Error 50000 is caused by you might have not assign the arm 7 bios, arm 9 bios and firmware bin at the emulator setting to use the one in the package.

as for Error 53000 is caused by you might have not allow the firewall to unblock the WinPcap properly

Strangely, from the start I've never encounter all the problems you are facing on your Win 7. I had tested on my Win 7 using the method I made in the above, and it work well so far. The only error message that I sometime get is error code 60000 = connection unstable and that is always resolved by disconnecting my LAN and reconnecting it. As for the other error code that I got is error code 13212 which is because pokemon-gl.com is still under construction/maintainance due to the Japan earthquack thus I can't get into game sync feature and c-gear feature.

So I'm guessing you might have missed a step. I have listed all the step by step in the above with all the illustrations, by following it all properly there shouldn't be any issue. It work for win xp and win 7 with the exact same method as shown in the above and I've did the testing myself on both my laptops.

error 20100

Error code 20100 : your home connection is problematic, unstable, slow connection speed, or temporary problem with going online.

I really am not sure what's going on with your computer, it should work with not much effort as long as your hardware support Ethernet LAN and you're using LAN connection to go online. You should have been able to set up the DeSmuMe by simply following the above method.

Mind telling me, are you using a LAN cable (not DIAL UP CONNECTION via Telephone cable)and in your NETWORK CONNECTION (find it under CONTROL PANEL), does the system say LOCAL AREA NETWORK CONNECTED (fast ethernet nic) with connection speed of above 100 Mbps? Any speed lower than that is not LAN but more likely Dial Up or 3G(CDMA/GPRS/WCDMA, etc. but not HSDPA).

The only explaination that I can think of as I am not next to you thus not know exactly what's going on with your hardware settings and type of connection you are using; maybe your internet connection is not compatible if you still get several error codes for the Nintendo WFC. Cause at most the error code you will be faced with if its done correctly and using the LAN Ethernet broadband is error code 60000 which is temporary unstable connection which can be easily resolved by doing:
1. disconnect LAN and reconnecting it
2. cancel WFC and re-establishing WFC connection

The key to solving your issue is to make sure that you have done step 2a and 2b properly.
1. Make sure to tick as shown in the image
2. Make sure to assign to use the arm 7 bios and arm 9 bios as well as the firmware bin provided in the package
3. Make sure to allow the use of winpcap at your firewall
4. Make sure to use a stable LAN broadband connection
5. Make sure to use Ethernet hardware in the Infrastructure Settings

Both error codes you had received are due to your broadband connection being unstable and also could be the Emulation Settings might be missed assigned. Do a re-check for the steps 2a and 2b.

Make sure at the Emulation Settings, under the Arm 7 bios. Arm 9 bios and firmware, you press the " ... "
then locate the arm 7, arm 9 and firmware respectively, assign its use for the DeSmuMe. Recheck that.

I've re-checked it, over and over.. :-\
You said that you've tested it in Windows 7 too. May i know, did you use Windows 7 64bit?

Yes, my Win 7 is Home Premium 64bit operating system SP1. Running on an Acer laptop, the hardware for the Infrastructure Setting is set to use 'Atheros L1C PCI-E Ethernet Controller'. My internet broadband connection is on LAN Broadband 100Mbps. Without any WIFI router or external access point. Factory standard laptop.

My Win XP is Home Edition SP3 on a Toshiba Satellite, factory standard laptop, and the Infrastructure Setting is set to use 'Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Ethernet NIC'. Don't have any WIFI router or external access point. Running on the same LAN broadband connection.

I got a 3rd laptop, Acer as well and running Win 7 Home Premium too, it has even better specification compare to the one that I used to do the testing. But I've not done any testing on it. That 3rd laptop is using Intel Core i5, while the Acer that I used to do the testing run Intel Celeron.

Note:
Factory standard laptop --> no hardware upgrades....all standard.
