    Can this handle 3d objects and cameras? I want to make a racing game. And how would I go about doing that?

    Only in DSmode.

    It will NEVER EVER run in 3DS mode.

    I am trying t make a racing game because none of the good ones are finished. I hope that either they get finished or that I can make a nice simple one.

    I will laugh if they do somehow manage an update for 3DS mode

    Yes, any flashcart can handle 3D objects.

    In fact, libnds is equipped with some standard pseudoGL functionality and is full of examples on how to create, convert and use 3D objects in games. Keep in mind thought that the DS is no powerhouse, you have to be efficient and simplistic. If you know what you're doing, you'll manage. ;)

    I'm not familiar with the Supercard SDK but I assume it's not that different.

    DS2 SDK has virtually no access to the NDS hardware (except the extreme basics), everything is done on the DS2's cpu, thus a software 3D renderer would need to be ported.

    Or, you could code your own transfer system between the DSTwo and NDS, like I have done in DS2x86. That way you will have full access to the NDS 3D-engine (and also to the WiFi system if you want to use that, but since transferring data from the NDS to the DSTwo direction is slow and cumbersome, that will be less than optimal).
