Im getting a R4iSDHC RTS LITE 2018 soon and i want to run 3ds roms off of it (fire emblem) and regular DS roms (the world ends with you) but i dont know if i need to get any new things or files in preparation of when it comes.

If you can help please send links to the file downloads if i need them

Quantumcat on the nds store page it says the r4 card can run 3ds roms
"Play Nintendo 3DS/DSi XL / DSi / DS Lite / DS" just means it will work on those systems. If you scroll further down to the Q&A section, you will see that it only natively plays DS games.

"Is it possibly to work on new nintendo 3ds xl?
Reply:yes, work on new 3ds xl to play ds games"

Yes if you want free 3DS games, DS flashcart might not work on higher firmware if you can't find the correct kernel for the DS flashcart, there is always DsiMenu++, you can look up on that, but not all games work.

You can run ROMs from that flash cart in DS-mode without CFW. However, for 3DS games, they will have to be installed onto the SD card with CFW.

    @Xzi Thanks for the feedback! I'm planing to make alot more music for each of the levels, so it don't get so repetitive! And working on some graphical upgrade ideas!

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".

    Oh, and I have no idea how to get past this gap - it's too close to the roof. https://imgur.com/A2mYGPy

    @kenenthk I used OpenMPT to make all the music. My brother will be helping out with some more tunes in the future!
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?
