    Is this currently possible?

    I have HBL 1.4, WUPInstaller and sigpatcher2sysmenu.

    Apparently this is all I need?
    I'd like to install

    Wupinstaller does not like foreign or special characters, so if the folder is named in Japanese text, it will mostly likely fail, so rename it to plain English. The contents do not need to be renamed, so all you can do is try it.

    Well I know that. I was just asking the right way to install a JP game onto a EUR console with the applications I listed. I'm pretty clueless how to do out of region games or whatever.

    You would install it like any other game, with sig patches enabled. And have sig patches/region patch enabled afterwards, so out of region titles work,

    Launch simple sig patcher and install the game. You need simple sig patcher launched each time you want to play the game

    So basically Launch the Sigpatch through HBL. Then go into HBL again run wup installer and then install the game like a normal USB game.

    Yes, and then use what I suggested if you want, as you won't need to keep launching sigpatch on every power-up because you can set it to auto-boot a patched system menu.

    Unfortunately I don't have a paid DS game currently.
