ROM Hack Is there any way to play Skelux's "Mario's Holiday" on a DS, without having to hack the DS?

I absolutely love Mario's Holiday, having played it on an emulator, but I was wondering is there any way to play it on a DS? On the YouTube Video made for it's launch I found someone in the comments that made a .bps patch that would supposedly let you play it on a DS, but I have tried patching the .nds file with Beat and it doesn't work. Has anyone got any other ways of getting to play the game on a DS, without having to mod or hack the DS itself?

There is no reason for you to modify the console 😂. If anything, you should update the kernel of your flashcart (I assume you're using one, since you're talking about DS and not DSi).

I have tried patching the .nds file with Beat and it doesn't work.
Do you mean you weren't able to apply the patch to the rom, or you applied it successfully but it doesn't work on DS?
In the second case, it could be that it is only compatible with some, specific kernels/flashcarts...:unsure:

Huh. I actually do have a DSi (and a New 2DS XL), but yeah, I don't want to modify.
The problem is I can't apply the patch to the ROM

Try using this online multi-patcher:
https://www.marcrobledo.com/RomPatcher.js/
I personally would not recommend that patcher, it does not verify checksums:

https://hack64.net/tools/patcher.php does, however:

Nah it still won't work
Here's the link to the ROM
https://www.youtube.com/redirect?ev...RQ&q=http://skelux.net/showthread.php?tid=107
And here's the transcription of the youtube comment with the supposed patch
Craftyawesome:
I used DSbuff to fix the header so it works with ds flashcards (maybe twloader).
It at least gets in game, I shouldn't have broken anything.
Replace (dot) with . so I don't get flagged as spam.
Links might be in first reply. (---download these three---)

google "bps patcher Beat" and scroll down to "Download File Now"
(---ignore this stuff?---)
Patch is for SKELUX's download, not the sm64ds rom.
Original MD5: 1197C45A05B79E1AD1F60BBE60EEEA43
Fixed MD5: AFC2D7DC51F2E4B92394E29276073991
Note to SKELUX: If you want the unpatched download down contact me and I will do so. You can also include my fix as a 1.1 if you credit me somewhere.

There's obviously a problem with the patch, right?
Have you tried to apply first this patch on the original, unmodified rom and then the patch in which this Mario Hack consists, even if the author says otherwise? It doesn't hurt to try.

So... patch the original ROM, see if that works, and then patch the ROM he provides?
