    On the thread about the retroch it mentions gba and a ps1 emulator but not ds emulators. Why the hell are you going to allow ps1 emulation but not allow ds emulation???

    Why would they port a DS emu? The 3DS can play DS games natively. It would be a waste of time to create and debug a DS emulator. Not to mention, at least the o3DS is way too weak to emulate DS.

    Putting ds games on a flash cart is not the same as playing games natively. In other words playing ds games on a microsd card is better because you don't always remove the games.

    Ehhmmm. It is. You're using the DS virtualization capabilities of the 3DS.

    You can also use real DS games, not only flashcarts.

    How is that not natively? Despite it not being the original copy of a game, you are still running the games on real hardware without emulation using a flashcart. You are still putting the games on a microsd card reguardless if it's inside the system or using a flashcart.

    This is the dumbest thread I've seen all day, and that's saying something considering the flood of shit.

    I say this in every thread, but why would devs release code they slaved over for months on end that can already be achieved with a 5 dollar flashcard and a couple of days postage?

    If you buy one right this very minute, it'll be in your letter-box in a couple of days time.

    If you don't have $5 right now, I'm sure you can save up your pocket money from mummy and daddy for 2 weeks, then get one.

    Last time I ordered a flashcard it cost 25$, took over a month, and of the two I ordered only one worked. No refunds. So if you can point me to this 5$ card with warpspeed shipping that'd be great.

    The trick is to not order Chinese ripoffs.

    I did but, that does TECHNICALLY emulate ds roms as it loads ds homebrew from the sd card.

    If we get the source code of a flashcart's firmware and DLDI for 3ds...
    Can we theoretically load ds games from SD?
