    I was wondering if this is possible
    Like you know how gameyob ds can be installed as a dsiware
    I want to convert nesDS to a cia file and install it on my 3ds like i did with gameyob
    NesDS is the best nes emulator for old3ds i know theres quickness and retroarch but they have horrible color palatte
    Is there any way how to convert this nds to .cia i tried the dsiware scripts but they don't work
    Or is there a dsi homebrew launcher that works in 133mhz mode on 3ds?

    NDS games cannot be converted to Cia files,

    If anything maybe twloader bootstrap? Other than that you can always get a NDS cart

    There is a way of converting dsi apps to installable cias. Idk how, but it is possible.

    The only reason gameyob dsiware is possible is because it also got released as a Dsi app.
    NesDS was only released as DS app, so the answer to your question is no, you can't convert it to cia.

    Porting the emulator might be possible though.

    The Mario Kart DS demo and some of the other download station demos have already been converted to cia format so I don't see any reason why it couldn't be done with nesds and other ds homebrew as well though you would need to manually dldi patch it first. Thanks to the same Luma patches that make nds-bootstrap work DS mode software has full access to the SD card and it's not like it is trying to read from the cart slot like a commercial game would.
