I'm currently running a Twitch Plays Tomodachi Life stream. This stream is run using input redirection (This one in particular)

However, I would like to disable the use of the 3DS Image Sharing as it gives the users access to the browser. My current work around is to just disable that screen region, but that ruins other aspects of the games and has potential to render the game unplayable.

So I was wondering if it was possible to disable internet for the game (purchased digitally) while still being able to use the input redirection (which is done through my network)

Hrm.... I think it's possible, but it would be complicated. Try making a hotspot with the computer sending the inputs, but make sure that hotspot itself has no connection to the internet. Then, connect the 3ds to it, so that the 3ds wouldn't have connection to the internet, but could receive the inputs. I'm not sure of it's possible to make a network with no internet with something such as connection, but it might be possible. Otherwise, uninstalling the browser through fbi would work too, but whenever somebody launches image share it will crash the console.

Set both DNS addresses to nonexistent ones. It won't prevent them from accessing websites by IP address though (but most websites don't work by IP address since they need the hostname to know which site to show you)
Does 3DS Image Sharing let you visit any URL? If not, then that shouldn't be a problem.

That should still work, but i believe image share is just a shortcut to a website vs a browser applet. I am pretty sure it can go to any url from there, that being the main issue.
