    Hi,

    So, I've downloaded DSX86 (specifically, DS2X86 since I have a DSTWO) from here. The command line works great and everything functions as it should. I've also put some of my DOS games onto there. All of them work, but there's one very bizarre exception. When I play on a regular DS (DS Fat), I'm able to play King's Quest 4, 5, and 6. However, when I put the exact same DSTWO into my 3DS XL, these games do not function. Each of them get stuck at the Sierra screen - not freezing, they just do not load the title screen at all. I've tested multiple times and it's the same result every time: the DS loads the games every time, and the 3DS fails every time. It's very strange because every other homebrew works exactly the same on both systems.

    Is there something that I'm missing here? Is it something on the hardware level? Thanks.
