    Woo, I got linked to, I feel famous.

    I've been playing a bit of the Gauntlet demo, if anyone wants some screenshots, here's some I took, spoilered because there's like 20 of them:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    EDIT: By the way, the exact process for extracting the demos/clips is to unpack the ROM with something like dslazy, go into /data/stats/, take whichever ones you want (check the NFO for what's what), and drag and drop them onto DS_Demo_Decompress.exe, which will spit out .nds files. You should be able to figure it out from here.

    Thank you for those screens and captions, Vague Rant. Too bad it's now coming after February 2009 now.

    This is the game carts they use at Target, GameStop and such to allow people to download demos and videos and such. In order to take advantage of it as is, you'll need a second DS. 1 DS acts as the "server" while any other DS in range can download any of the content they'd like.
    There is a technique to split out the individual files from the master NDS.

    Do a search for an little program called DS Demo Decompress by Michael Chisholm ("Chishm")

    The file's usage info states: "Simply drag and drop a demo compressed demo file onto the exe to decompress it." I'm not sure if there was supposed to be more in the readme that's missing, but here's how I do it. It requires you also have DSLazy (Sorry, don't know where that came from originally.)

    Load the original file and unpack it using DSLazy. It will open a window showing the contents. In the folder DSLazy\NDS_UNPACK\data\stats there will be a list of files. These are the separate components of the Download Station file. If you drag each piece and drop onto the DS_Demo_Decompress.exe file, it will take the file and create a corresponding .NDS file, dropping it into the DSLazy\NDS_UNPACK\data\stats folder. Be sure to cut and paste these files from here into another folder to avoid losing them when you unpack another demo file. I think they all get named the same thing, so you'll need to rename each one as you do it. Each of the newly created .NDS files can be now run independently without the need to download it from a second DS.

    I hope that helps!
