    Please respond to the following questions:
    1. Is your 3DS hacked? If not, you can either hack it or use a R4i flashcard to run NDS games.
    2. If yes, have you tried TWiLight Menu++? It will allow you to run NDS, GBA and other emulator games. :)

    afaik, you can't technically turn it into a cia (the twlNAND is too small by default - 128MBs or so or something like that). use twilight menu++ (if it's hacked) or you can use a forwarder (also, if it's hacked).

    NDS flashcarts work pretty well, TWilight Menu++ works too, (only if your 3ds is hacked btw) NDS Forwarder (you also need a hacked 3ds like everyone else says) works pretty well too if you aren't trying to forward a Pokemon game like Pokemon SoulSilver. ..it freezes like crazy and makes you want to buy a physical cart instead.

    not all games work with twilight menu++ (most do) without a flash cart. one that I know of is golden sun for the ds.

    Yup! Flashcarts give the best experience in my opinion, while using YSMenu.

    Golden Sun is a fickle one :)

    I think Robz8 said golden sun is fixable, but not enough is known currently about all the calls the game is using.

    I'm using twilight menu++ on both 3ds and ds. and, I have a flash cart (supercard dstwo) for the ds. I test golden sun with each new iteration on both systems. it's never not worked with the flash cart, but I always hold out hope for the 3ds. ;)

    DS .nds roms can't be converted into working CIAs installed on the TWLNAND. Only DSiWare .nds games can be.

    To get DS games to function as if they're standalone HOME Menu titles, you'll need this.

    I don't believe nds-bootstrap/TWiLightMenu++ handle games in containers. Extract the .NDS rom out of the .ZIP archive by using 7-Zip or WinRAR.

    98% of the DS library works perfectly just Golden Sun and a few minor Japanese titles don't.
