    42 All time Classics ROM did not have a "PictoChat" mode like it allegedly did, any help on how to play PictoChat on a flashcart on 3DS? Thanks!

    Find a file called "firmware.nds" using the magic of Google. Run that ROM on a flashcart and the standard DS firmware screen should pop up - you can boot Pictochat from there as far as I know. I'm not going to direct you to that file for obvious copyright reasons.

    Actually, it tells you to setup, and when it is done, it has to reset. Boot it up again, you have to set it up again. :(

    In that case, tough luck. I figured it'd possibly be compatible but I guess not. Well, that's as close as you'll ever get to launching Pictochat on a 3DS as far as I know, at least the original one.

    I remember that there's a Japanese game that's got PictoChat in it, but i can't remember the name of the game

    It might be compatible if you were to modify it to read from the firmware instead of just going to setup. How I'd go about doing that, I don't know.

    If the image isn't loading, you click the wrench in the lower left, then the button that says "ピクト チャット".

    My DSPhat broke in half, and I never had someone to PictoChat with.
