    I don't think this has been posted here before, so let's fix that!

    This recent DS port of Cave Story has been made available on December (8th?) 2020, which is based on the CSE2 decompilation project, which itself is a decompilation of the freeware version of Cave Story.
    Unfortunately, despite the project being based on the freeware version, it got taken down by Nicalis, who to my knowledge, do not own the freeware version (though correct me if I'm wrong).

    So, for preservation sake, and a way to play Cave Story on your DS console, I'll upload the port here as an attachment!

    Included is:
    • CaveStoryDS-0.1.nds: For use with regular flashcard kernels
    • CSDSdsi.nds: For use with nds-hb-menu and/or TWiLight Menu++
      (No CIA is included, due to the ARM9 binary being too big)
    The source will not be uploaded, due to a risk of a DMCA takedown.

    Thanks to:
    • rain, who developed the port!
    • arceus on the DS(i) Mode Hacking Discord server for providing both a build and a backup of the source code including compiled builds!
    Times downloaded before the re-upload: 62

    What is the difference between the "CSDSdsi.nds" and "CaveStory-0.1.nds" files?

    "An error has occurred" with the installed 3ds cia version. 11.14 old3ds, latest luma.
    Is there some trick to getting this version working?

    edit: to answer my own question, it appears the .cia installed version would need a source change to use the correct savegame filepaths, like datapub:/profile.dat for example. Anyways, running the dsi version as dsi homebrew works fine.
