    This topic is for people who want a idea for a DS Homebrew or someone who has a good idea! I'll try to update this weekly. I no longer can update this, so if you want to see the ideas: go look at all the pages!

    You can post a idea if you want but please give as much info as you have.

    NO GAME IDEAS ONLY APPLICATIONS. GAME'S AND APPLICATION'S NOW!

    Well my not really idea but hope is for a homebrew app that can act as a really good gui. Not just the R4 look a like Os menu but a replacement firmware for the G6 that has more features and good rival the official firmware of both m3real (sakura) and ak rpg/2 (bliss and other loaders).

    Though i do know that it would probably never happen. As it would take a lot of time and need to have updates every now and then for rom compatibility but hey it's a idea.

    About an app that you access your computer's hard drive wirelessly through Wi-Fi. Like, suppose you have a low memory chip (like 1GB) and want to delete a rom off your card and get a new one off your hard drive (if you have rom datatbase full of your favorite games). Or if you want to copy saves directly from your chip to your hard drive? (Not sure all cards can do what I mentioned, like copying, deleting, etc but AK2 can).

    So like Automatic Saving Utility via Wi-Fi.

    Note: You should only require a Slot-1 card. No GBA expansions.

    There's already DSFTP. But copy copying ROMS and etc. wirelessly is very, very slow. It's much easier to just connect your MicroSD card to a computer.

    Remeber when creating ideas, try to make them realistic. Most small good homebrew games take at least a year so think how long some of these ideas will take.

    My Idea?

    maybe a homebrew that can replace arm7.bin for us? There's DLDI patcher, so I think accessing files from NDS is possible. Now, if only we can "patch" the arm7.bin, it can help lots of user (well, maybe only R4 users.....)

    or a converter to convert videos to .dpg in NDS, so no need to convert it in PC, not sure how this helps

    Workout tracker-
    Type of exercise/number of reps/how much weight
    Listing of cardio exercise, and amount of time or distance traveled
    Weight/measurement tracking (body fat calculator?)
    Maybe some neat stats to see how you have improved.

    This would make the NDS the perfect tool for the gym- music/movies/ability to see what I benched last week.

    Progress Quest is a game in the loosest possible sense. Essentially, it's an RPG that plays itself, that you just run and and leave alone, requiring no interaction on the user's part with the exception of rolling the character at the beginning. Considering the simple 'gameplay' mechanics, and an 'on-line' version that already exists for the computer versions that would possibly be adapted for Wi-Fi, I thought it could've been exempted from the 'no-game' rule.

    That said, if it's not allowed, then how about a memo-pad/alarm that displays things you've written down at user-set times, to act as reminders? (unless Moonshell has an option like that already)

    I'm all for a BitTorrent client for the NDS. While speeds would obviously be limited, it'd be nice to drop the innocent looking DS somewhere at an active hotspot to get some downloading done.
