    This is an explorer extension that shows covers for .3ds files, along with some moderately useful information below in the properties view.

    https://mega.nz/#F!1B9BlbaI!srJg5nTE_qaxJyHDIU9GhA

    Older downloads: http://no-info.no-ip.info/3ds/

    Source code is also included for those of you too paranoid to run random executables.


    3DS database wiki: http://no-info.no-ip.info/3ds/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
    A bot crawls the wiki and produces an updated database of games, downloadable from here: http://no-info.no-ip.info/3ds/database/
    If you make changes to wiki (editing metadata, adding games or pictures) you can expect the bot to produce new database file in about 15 minutes.

    Enjoy.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    rctgamer3 is maintaining update database for 3ds games: [link]

    Alternate versions for thumbnail decorations: [1], [2]

    Looks good! Going to wait for a confirmation of it being virus-free first.

    well, I'll just copy a part of included README.txt file:

    Code:
    INSTALLATION
     
    Run install.bat to install (double-click it). That should be it.
    Make sure you install a version that fits your system: x64 for 64-bit
    systems, and x32 for 32-bit systems. You can also uninstall the extension
    with uninstall.bat.

    i remember using something that made nds file icon the game icon. but it seemed to never want to close the file so if i ever try to rename/move/delete the file i kept getting a file open in another process error. does this one do the same thing?

    KazoWAR: no, it lets you rename/move/delete files just fine.
    Zidapi: no, I possibly will in future.
    kutteke: yes; I'll see what I can do in next version.

    Nope. Reinstalled twice but still does not work.

    Maybe its because I have set to open .3ds files with 3dsexplorer.

    It didn't install for when clicking the "install.bat". It opened up the command prompt and failed.
