First of all I would like to state that I have no idea how to program, so I would not be able to make anything like this on my own.

However, I was thinking the other day about how many more games allow local wireless play, as apposed to wifi play. Then I was reminded about something similar on windows that bascially "tricks" your PC games into thinking that people that you connect to across the internet are accually part of your LAN. The program is called Hamachi, and more information is available here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamachi .

So getting to my question, I was wondering if it would be possible to create an application that runs on the PC that would allow the DS to be "tricked" into thinking the requests from this application were requests from a local wireless DS. To me this seems theoretically possible, but thats not taking into account things like latency which would probably be the biggest challenge.

I am hoping that this idea just has not been explored yet, and that a talented programmer could make this happen, even it it was dreadfully slow. Mario Party DS would be worth it alone

The process you speak of is called tunnelling and a few projects were attempted, some were fake and others ran into major technical difficulties and were passed up in favour of other things (like wifi libraries).

    @Psionic Roshambo, The disc drive wasn't meant to be a cup holder to begin with. It does look like the place to put a cup on top because the tray has a circular outline.

    RIP to those who use it for cups rather than discs.

    After you hack it the drive becomes most useful as a cup holder lol

    @Psionic Roshambo, Yes, since you can play the games off a HDD anyways.

    I thought the hard drive bays were a good place to hide weed until the FBI confiscated my computer

    The newer generation ruins the best shows that's for sure. :(

    @K3N1, You do know that the police have dogs that can sniff out drugs pretty well.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    So using your hard drive bays as a place to store your illegal drugs is not the best idea.

    Cops have dogs? No say it ain't true
