Is DS "Emulation" worth it still?

  2. No, and I'd like to explain why...

    I'll be back.

    I've decided to create a GitHub project
    If you'd like to contribute, go here: https://github.com/SirBeethoven/TWL_Research

    Fork it, PR it, anything else is all help!


    So we have come to a point in the 3DS's life were we have actually found some tools that could allow us to run retail DS roms on the 3DS here.

    From the many threads about this, we can depict what to do next:

    This tool has the ability to patch DS roms to be loading from Slot-2. Now with it, if we were to find the source code of it or to edit code of the patcher ourselves, we could redirect roms to read/write to and from another location - the SD card.

    I don't really think it's worth it when we have 100% accurate hardware simulation with twl firm.

    Now, running ds roms with twl firm is another thing entirely, and more likely than getting a full speed nds emulator (at least in my opinion).

    Oops, I'll restate that to be more clearer. That is exactly what I'm going at.

    How can you tell? Cheating on the poll using bots (dunno what they are) is impossible.

    You are the dude who created at least 3 other threads about this. You also go to other topics which have nothing to do with this and start this subject. And what's even worse is that the answers are always the same but you keep insisting. The tool you posted (And you already made a thread about it earlier) isn't helpful at all, everyone already told you that when the 3DS is running on DS mode it has NO ACCESS to the SD card, as far as it's aware it doesn't exist, even if you patched the entire ROM to load from the SD you won't be able to load any data from the card. If you want to reprogram the DS mode, go ahead, good luck.

    Didn't I just reply to this thread? *Looks at both threads* No, this is a different one.
    As I've stated before, that tool is completely inapplicable to running DS games on the 3DS. The DS doesn't have access to the SD card, and it never will. That tool patches DS games so that they run off of the slot 2, which the DS has always had access to.

    I'll go ahead and quote the highlights of my last post, so no one has to go find it.

    You missed the whole point though, that it patches the DS games to run of slot 2. If we edited parts of the code and added in code, we could patch them to instead run off the SD card (if we're lucky) or rewrite parts of TWL_FIRM to include more space and run it in FCRAM

    I don't what's so bad about getting an R4, literally any DS flashcart works on a 3DS with patched TWL_FIRM.

    An emulator would be useless as we can run DS games natively at fullspeed
