    Hi,

    does anyone know if there's a program for the DS that lets you change the raw RTC of the DS like the Config Tool from the CTR SDK?

    I'm looking for something like this to bypass the penalties that some games give you when you change your clock, like Animal Crossing or Pokemon D/P/Pt. (I know, I could just play on my 3DS to do this but I'd like to play on my DS lite or DSi instead)

    If you change the time with the config tool from the SDK you can bypass this. Did it with Sun and Moon all the time.

    As far as I know, the DS/Lite doesn't actually use the RTC offset - the actual time is managed directly in hardware, and the offset is just there to annoy users, so it should hopefully be simple to make such a time editor...

    No, I'm not creating one, sorry :)

    I'm gonna look into that, as I'm a developer myself. Setting up a DS developing environment has become a huge pain though since many links are outdated and so on...

    I've already checked the gbatek document, it's just so perfect
