As the title says, whats the best way to run DS games on a N3DS
As for now, and probably for a long time, the only way to play DS games is via DS flashcard. So the best way to play DS games is with a flashcard.
The only option to play DS games on a 3DS is to get a DS flashcart. No other solution exists.
Well, you can also buy them.
less chance of a banzorz
edit: oh i thought you meant 3ds games
CFW can't play DS games.
the only way to run nds games is via a flashcard or *EW* buying them
Don't worry I own a few lol I just want a convenient way of loading DS games without carrying every game with me.
I guess now the question is the Supercard DSTwo or Supercard DSTwo Plus
If you only want to play DS games, no need to get the plus.
get whatever you want. DO NOT USE THE GATEWAY EMULATOR ON YOUR 3DS AS IT WILL BRICK YOUR 3DS!
I know but the emulation on the plus is better then the normal DSTwo
Then again, you can get pretty much all the emulators on 3DS with a CFW. And they will show with native resolution instead of DS resolution.
Very true lol I have seen that the .CIA versions of the cores from Retroarch play everything up to the PS1 quite well
might aswell get an R4i gold as it will drain your battery less compared to the dstwo.
Not currently. They claim that the DSTWO+'s processor is faster and it has more RAM, but currently you are limited to the same clock speed in emulators as they only let you select 390 something mhz as the maximum, regardless of which cart you have.
Why not both?
Run AuReiNAND so you don't have to have to patch your NAND for the flashcart to work. And get a Flashcart for your DS games.
Plus CFW's can't actually install DS games, you need a DS-Mode Flashcart for that.
I have a dstwo freakin love it it's amazing and runs on every 3ds and ds it's sweet. But I wouldn't recommend you buy it at this point since you'll get the same functionality with a much cheaper r4 gold with aureinand.
You've never had to patch your NAND to play with flashcarts.
Actually, ds_whitelist.cia was a package a user could install to your NAND to whitelist some flashcarts that Nintendo blocked around the 4.x updates or so.
Nowadays, there's better methods like AuReiNand or "Stage 2 TWL Flashcart Launchers!" by ApacheThunder.
You could even get an "outdated" card from a friend who updated his device before updating the card, setup a 2.1 emunand and update it there to run it on aurei on sysnand.
For older flashcarts, you need to downgrade your whitelist (either using flashcarttimewarp, bluecardfix, or some other form of patching.) Any cards made after Nintendo stopped patching for them, like recent versions of R4i Gold or Supercard DSTwo, are fine.
So basically, you did have to do some form of patching and if you were using an emuNAND, you had to install these on both NANDs.
Now with AuReiNAND, that's no longer needed.
