How do you know when you run out of texture memory?

When I run my game in the emulator it works but some of the textures look weird,
when I run it on the DS it just shows a blank screen,

Im converting a game from desktop to DS and the textures may take up more graphics memory than the DS has, is there a way of telling if that is the problem?

Image padding

The DS seems to have a blank screen or crash when you use non power of 2 textures.
Does anyone know how to pad loaded images to make them power of 2?

Re: png transparency + a texture questions

For example, GTA for NDS is about 128MB, how do they prevent all assets going into RAM?


If it cant be done thats OK, but I just want to make sure.
