    Hi,

    I'm sorry, this question is probably answered a 100 times, but I'm tired and can't find what I'm looking for...

    So, I bought a New 3DS XL System version 9.6.0-24... I have homebrew running already and a Sky3DS on the way to play 3DS games...

    Now... I will able to play almost all nintendo games from NES to 3DS... except for DS/DSi... is there a flashcart available that would allow me to fill this gap?

    (I came across R4i flashcards during my research... but I can't really be sure if it will do what I want...)

    There is not any way to load ds roms from homebrew menu, and probably not for a while. You'll have to get a r4 or similar to play DS roms

    R4i Gold 3DS works in your firmware.

    i have a supercard dstwo (not the plus version) and it's fine for ds roms.

    If i remember, the gba and snes emulation is not realaly good on this one :(

    Get supercard dstwo plus, not only it is more reliable but might be able to support firm wares up to 9.3+ in the far future. It is more expensive though but at least you get decent gba and snes emulators as well.

    Thanks for all the replies so far.

    I already have nes, snes, gbc and gba emulators running with the homebrew launcher... I also have a Sky3DS card on the way (hopefully), so all I need is something to play DS games (at least until some kind soul develops N64 and GameCube emulators... lol).

    I bought R4i SDHC 3DS RTS today (also hopefully) it will do the trick.


    *hopefully => comes from China/Singapore

    I have one of these, paid about £10 for it a year ago and works 100% on my N3DS in both sysNAND and emuNAND (rxTools)

    It also works sweet for setting up MSET for either GW loader OR rxTools loader :)

    R4i SDHC 3DS RTS should do the job. Or you can also buy the cheep "pink" Ace3DS Plus manny sites have sale on it since their blue version is out but i have both blue and pink and i cant see any difference now but maybe later on the blue version will get better suport/compability

    I use a r4 RTS 3DS card that works great with my New 3DS. Cost like $20 with shipping.

    Won't there be any way to launch nds games on a custom FW like we do with cias? Can't something be done like the VCs?

    How about DS to DSiware to CIAs?
    Highly improbable?
