    The .SRL is from Mario Kart DS (USA) (NDS) (Virtual Console), a Wii U software. Here is a patch to Mario Kart DS (USA), an NDS software.

    I tried ndstool on the ROM, and one of the things it tells me is:
    Code:
    0x6C    Secure area CRC                 0x3B22 (OK, mask ROM)
    does anybody now what a "mask" ROM is? and how to convert it into a decrypted ROM?

    Retrogamefan has contributed some info:
    Does anybody you know what the extra data is?

    That converts the bins from the SD card.
    To convert it, then compare it with the USA cart version.

    Lost my flashcard, so can't test it. If it is identical to the USA cart version, multiplayer would work.

    No. This is not about modifying the Wii U VC to support multiplayer, this is about converting the DS ROM files that are used in Wii U VCs, and converting them into the common decrypted format of NDS ROM files. There is a thread about VC emulator modding in one of the Wii U forums.

    IIRC you can use eNDryptS_Advanced_v1.2_NDS-iND to decrypt nds roms.

    I used files from ds virtual console rom.zip renamed to .nds once extraced.

    Afaik those were just encrypted nds roms. It worked fine with no$gba and ds bios

    Yeah, last I checked NDS modcrypt is natively supported by the DS/DSi/3DS in DS mode. So you don't need to decrypt anything except whatever it is that contains the NDS rom.

    .srl is just nintendo's offical file extension for nds roms, just rename it to .nds and try booting it in an emulator. i know i found download play roms in ds roms before with .slr extension and they boot in emulators just fine.

    @Hiccup
    The header is identical between the retail .nds and the WiiU .srl
    There is extra data in the WiiU .srl from 0x1000-0x33FF, 0x3600-0x3FFF
    If you encrypt the .nds, the data from 0x4000-0x1FFFFFF is identical

    Do you know what the extra data is? And do you have any answers to the questions in this post?:
