    Yello! I was wondering if there was a homebrew to run PC games on your 3ds with VNC and possibly use the 3ds controlls as a gamepad?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i remember there is an homebrew that turns your 3ds (or DS) into a gamepad, but it doesn't display the pc screen on the ds\3ds..
    anyway, i don't think streaming the screen for your ds wil be fluid.. most likely there will be a delay that makes games unplayable..

    I Think It Would Be Fine For Network Use At Low Resolution.

    Yes migles is right there would be to much of a lagg between the PC and the 3ds to make the game playable. As for using the 3ds as a controller this homebrew allows you todo that https://github.com/CTurt/3DSController

    Sadly, there is no VNC server as far as I know that is optimized for 'streaming' the video from the PC it's running on, even between PCs VNC usually ends up as a near-slideshow when there is a lot happening on the screen (as in, in a game).
