    Other than getting an R4 card, is there any other way of playing DS games on the 3DS with (Luma + A9LH)

    There is this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-twloader-ctr-mode-nds-loader.448375/

    Quote from the title: "PLEASE READ: It's not possible to run commercial/retail ROMs from SD Card with this. Homebrew and DS Download Play ROMs (<4MB games and demos) only work for now."

    Nope. Devs are working on some way to load NDS ROMs from the 3DS's SD, but nothing has been released yet. So as for now, you need a flashcart

    As you should probably, already know. Flashcarts are dirt cheap anyway.
