    No, DS Download Station runs in DS Download Play which only runs in DS mode therefore it will only use the original DS memory size (which incurs the 4mb limit)

    Yeah, if you can compile it for the DSi and change half the code. Best you'll get is 8-12MB as you still need room for memory usable by the sent code, plus overhead and things. The 3DS also runs everything pertaining to the topic in either DSi or DS mode, Download Play being DS mode.

    No. Download Play is run in DS mode, so it has the exact same constraints as the DS. To get around this limit you would have to run the homebrew through a DSiWarehax exploit (or TWLMenu/Unlaunch), but at that point you have no need for haxxstation.

    No, DS Download Station runs in DS Download Play which only runs in DS mode therefore it will not be able to access any 3DS features. Also, Seedminer is just fine for now.

    So you can package nes games (and gb games) into a haxxstation download. Could you send a media player bundled with an .mp3 file?

    Strange, It seems like Shutterbug closed his channel @Robz8 is everything ok?
    Anyways, this is more useful for helping people without any flashcard/softmod run homebrews/unsigned code wirelessly (or in theory use one cartridge multiplayer games with nds bnootstrap, but AFAIK it doesn't in practice), even better if you want to deploy it to several ds at the same time, there are some demos on YouTube...
    You need to patch the "DS Download Station - Volume 1 US rom", add your homebrews/demos and launch it from the (modded) console, anyone got a mirror for the patcher?

    Looks like the channel was banned. I don't think he closed it.

    it's fine I have the stuff now
    and I decided I don't care at the moment and that if I want to play homebrew I can just play homebrew

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    and that is a large oof
    also is there any way to easily package an emulator and games into a .nds file for this? like I'd have nesds and a folder of nes games, could you provide a way to turn that into an nds file to send via download play?

    haxxstation gui for an easy to use patcher, then just launch the resulting output rom and bam your own ds dl station

    (rom size limit is 4mb for the ones you download over ds dl play)

    open the patcher program, then click on the "open file" button under "DS Download station volume 1" then navigate to where the rom is then select it, then you can click on the add from button to add roms for the main ds (server) to give out to the other dses (clients) over download play. rom size limit is 4 megabytes, but you can add as many roms as you want, homebrew, official demos, anything really. then click on the "save file" button, navigate to where you want to save the server rom, then in the little bar at the bottom of the windows explorer window, put ".nds" (without the quotes) at the end of the file name to be safe, then click on "Create ROM". done

    edit: if you need some homebrew apps to put on there, I can give you some

    ok thanks I just don’t know if the emulator will recognize the roms when they’re all in the same file and if I should do something specific
    I’ll see if I can do it
    edit: it only lets me add .nds and .srl files
    how do I add files of other types (like nes roms when I'm also adding nesds)?

    Fun fact for everyone using this- if you do this with a single supported rom, the total is likely to be less than 3 MB itself.
    Fun fact 2: Using fw2nds (a tool to turn firmware.bin into firmware.nds, over at this thread -> https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-fw2nds-build-firmware-nds-from-firmware-bin.508831/), it turns out that the firmware.nds file is only around half a megabyte.
    Fun fact 3: You can create absurd meta "station trees" by patching Download Station with Haxxstation with Haxxstation with Haxxstation and so on... and make the final rom at the bottom the freaking nds firmware!
    I don't have three DSes, so I haven't tested this absurdity out yet.
    If any of you is crazy and/or meta enough to do so for me, please do and tell me if it works.

    Oh, and you can probably confuse the heck out of people with a DS or DS Lite by sending them the firmware through haxxstation download play. They see it, get a tad confused, launch it and end up... at the main menu??

    IMPORTANT NOTE: If this weird crud bricks anything or corrupts anything, I am sincerely sorry and I do not have nearly enough DSes to test it properly. All I'm saying is that the patcher let me patch it with firmware.nds and then patch it with the patched file repeatedly. I hope to god it doesn't brick anything. (It does freeze emulators when you try to launch firmware stuff itself, but that's for obvious reasons- a lack of anything else other than the firmware file.)
