    This is a guide on how to turn any regular DS, DSi or n/o3DS into a "spot" for downloadable games!

    There are now two methods to accessing a Download Station, as they have been removed a while ago.

    Required Items:

    A DS Download Station card,which are usually obtainable from online places such as Amazon, or A download station rom in a microSD with an R4.

    Two or more systems.

    Step 1: Insert the card, turn on the system, or the host, and open up the app.

    2: On the other system(s)
    Select DS Download play from their menu(s), wait a while, and Download Station will be available.

    The great thing about this is how this mimicks the popular Nintendo Zone, and I love it. Give me some feedback below!

    A bit rude but, true...
    I don't see why you posted that here, OP.
    It's a legit way to play multiplayer with one cartdridge yeah, but we know that for like 10 years.

    This is kinda like it due to the fact that it pretty much was a way to get demos and movies and shit. Pretty much like it tbh

    I have never seen demos, movies nor shit on Nintendo Zone...
    Nintendo Zone basically is an internet hotspot for your games. And the Nintendo Zone Viewer app displays in-store info about the retail shop you're currently visiting.

    It's the software that haxxstation runs on. I wish I could trigger something with an AP

    What do you mean by triggering it?
    Making it appear on 3DS? I guess that won't work with USA consoles, because NZone was discontinued in America.

    guys, he's not talking about NZone. He's talking about Download Station which is an NDS/NDSL feature.

    Basically those were beacons set up whereever (Gamestop for example) and allowed you to download demos via the download play option on your DS.

    These beacons were nothing but a DS hooked up to a power supply and if you have one of those cartridges (or a ROM image of those) you can stick it into any old DS, DS Lite, DSi or 3DS and run the beacon yourself.

    He said "The great thing about this is how this mimicks the popular Nintendo Zone", though?

    Maybe he's talking about the "Best Buy Nintendo Zone" which - too - was an NDS thing, not a 3DS:
    CDA15C22-0B92-FD43-2EACD16B2C44F159.
    Presumably, the N-Zone you're refering to is triggered in a similar way with a 3DS game cartridge, though. But this post is about the DS "Nintendo Zone"

    I actually have that BestBuy ds card and it does not enable ANYTHING on a DS or DS Lite. Nothing shows up on DS Download Play either.
    The BestBuy ds card is only for enabling the 3DS Nintendo Zone which was disabled in a firmware update for USA.
