    Have there appeared any options to play (old) DS games for the 3DS without purchasing a flashcart?

    I'm on rxtools 11.0 just in case.

    Well crap.

    Any recommended easily accessible flashcarts then? I imagine sky3ds isn't an option? I still have the old one.

    Just wondering, but why would something like that be so hard to implement?

    Have you ever heard of this wonderful website called Google? Here's a link to it: www.google.com
    Let me post this while I write up a detailed explanation for you. It might take a while, so please wait.

    First, replace your rxtools with luma3ds a9lh.
    Second, use a ds mode flashcard such as r4i sdhc 2016 or a r4i-gold 3ds to run Ds ROMs/backups.
    There's no viable way to run ds ROMs as of now without one although there is a super wip emulator in development(don't even consider it, just buy a flashcard, they are $6, the emulator is awful in terms of speed)

    As soon as we'd load the ROM, it would try reading from Slot-1.

    Alright we get it. You've had enough of this question.
    But the person posting it is not. They were curious and decided to ask.
    Please don't be such an ass.

    Due to how DS games and DSiWare actually work. Download play demos from DS games can be ripped and installed as a .cia though.

    It might take a while for you to be respected by this community.

    How is it respectful of the community to make a thread without even doing a simple search?
    I mean I disagree with his attitude, but come on it works both ways...

    Between insane and insecure
    There's a lot of technical reasons why it can't work and it mostly just boils down to, they just can't.
    Now, there is a DS emulator on the New 3DS here
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-3desmume-ds-emulator-for-3ds.430223/
    But it's not very good and kind of shows why it's not possible to really make a DS emulator on the 3DS.

    Your best bet is to get a flashcart, my suggest is the R4i Gold and I suggest this one
    http://nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149
    or anyone with the url: r4ids.cn on it.

    Who wants to know?
    Shantae - Risky's Revenge DSIWARE is 16MB. It's the largest dsiware. if we learn to inject DS games they can't be any larger than that.
