AngunaDS v 1.0

Ok, I'm proud to announce AngunaDS version 1.01. (edit: because I updated to a 1.01 version, I'm changing this link for now to point to the updated version)

Thanks go out to:

Jong Lee, Dennis Tseng, Irashtar,

Unfortunately, there were a few features/fixes that I ended up cutting at the end:
  • You can't use the touchscreen to navigate subscreen menus
  • Sleep mode when closing the lid only partially turns things off, and thus still drains the battery faster than it should
  • The main theme song (Hurtless by Magic Fred) is using a few XM effects that LibXM7 doesn't yet support.
  • I didn't add a cool stairs animation like I would have liked
Anyway, as there are most likely still some bugs floating through it, please email me (nathantolbert at google's mail service) if you find any problems.

Enjoy, and thanks for following along!
