    While playing a 3DS game on my n3DS I was thinking aboit loading times. I came up with a dumb idea, make a RAM disk of sorts to cache files in the n3DS's extra memory. I know this would be complicated, but an interesting idea.

    Basically, load O3ds games in n3ds mode?

    That could be possible, but I doubt it would work without heavy gamecode modifications.

    Not quite. But alocate the RAM and modify the FS layer to cache files on load.

    Oh I see. Similar to Nintendont's method?

    Yes, when it did that.
