Hi, everyone! I've just discovered this fine community, and I humbly come asking for your help. Due to me ending up writing quite a wall of text, I've split it into two segments. The "background" segment is basically non-essential, but provides an idea of why this is important to me. If you'd like to help, however, but don't feel like reading an essay, then you can simply skip to the "My problem" portion. Background I've always been a PC gamer at heart - that's what I played games on as a kid, when I was barely four, back in the early nineties. One of my childhood loves was the vertical scrolling SHMUP "Tyrian", which came out when I was six. I played that as much as possible, often cooperatively with my brother. Fast forward almost exactly 20 years, and I'm still almost exclusively a PC gamer. I spend a lot of time playing games either from my childhood, or games that build on some of the ideas of those classic games. Tyrian (or rather, the source port "OpenTyrian") is still a title that I dig up at least yearly. Less than a month ago I bought my first console since the GBA I bought when I was twelve. I bought a New Nintendo 3DS XL - and to my good fortune, I discovered that there's a lot of ported classic games available for it, especially on the eShop. Something that's entirely lacking, however, are vertical SHMUP's. The few that I've found do not seem to be very good at all. Nanostray is probably the best bet, but seems so much more simple compared to my beloved Tyrian. Imagine my joy, then, when just today I discovered that the OpenTyrian project has been ported to the DS! And imagine my confusion, then, when I have no experience with DS's or 3DS's, hacking or homebrews. To put it simply, I have no idea how I'd go about installing this masterpiece on my New 3DS, without ending up breaking it. And that's where, hopefully, you come in. My problem As I said, there's this DS port of OpenTyrian, and there's a few thing that's I'll need explained, or need some advice on. I hope you can help. 1. Is a New 3DS capable of running this at all, since it was originally built for the DS, or is this a lost cause? 2. In the installation guide it says that I need to make sure that: "Make sure you have a Nintendo DS capable of running homebrew code". How do I go about preparing my New 3DS to be able to run homebrews, and do I need some extra third party hardware in order to do so? 3. The installation guide also says that I need to patch the .NDS-file with the: "correct DLDI for your card". The link to site for downloading those DLDI's is dead, however. How do I find out what the correct DLDI is, and where would I get that DLDI? I believe those three points are all that I'm unsure about. The rest is something I should be able to figure out on my own, I reckon. In any case, I really hope that some of you here, with this fantastic know-how, can help me out, and are willing to spend a few minutes doing so. Thanks in advance! EDIT: Also, I hope that I've posted this to the correct sub-forum. If I haven't, then mods, feel free to either move the thread, or delete it and notify me about it, so that I may repost it to the correct sub-forum.
