NTSC-U games will work, PAL ones don't.
Many games are region free by default tho.

What you could do is download it, stealth patch it and load it.
See if it boots.
If it doesn't then it's locked to PAL and doesn't work on an NTSC console.

The game I wanted to download shows both regions yet when I go to their post it only has one set of downloads. I'm just not sure if it just means it will work with both regions or it is locked to one.

It just says PAL/NTSC like this: "Region: PAL/NTSC"

It's up to the higher ups to decide to promote me or not ;p

I just love to help c:

The game ended up working but I have enough question but not sure if you would have an answer. I have an xk3y and trying to play Original Xbox games but all don't load and just give me the error message. Any idea how to get around that or program to check what is wrong?

I've actually never dabbled with them.
But, I seen somewhere that you'd need to convert them with Xdvdmulleter before you'll be able to load them from the Xkey.
Basically, they need to be 1:1 copies of the games.

They definitely do work (the ones supported by the Xbox emulator that is)

Ok hit a little bit of a wall.... Xdvdmulleter has 5 options for an iso and not sure what to pick. DVD9 ISO, DVD5, Standard ISO, Standard Xbox 1 ISO, and Cloned DVD9 ISO. I'm going with the standard Xbox 1 ISO first but if you know if another one is better let me know :D

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.
