    Hope this is the right place to post this:

    I just got an r4sdhc 3ds dsi Dual-Core. My question is: can you play roms/games that you would normally download from the nintendo e-shop (like the old megamans for example)?

    If so, is there a guide/link that I could look at?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Excuse me, I didn't read the question correctly.
    Seems like somebody here doesn't know everybody makes mistakes.

    Ignoring the guy above me, since I actually read the post.

    If you're talking about Virtual Console games. Yes. You can currently use your R4 to get an Emulator and Roms and play anything that is currently on the e-Shop that is part of the Virtual Console brand.

    Ah, so there is virtual console, and that works. Is the emulator something separate from the r4? Is there an emulator link where I can get one (is that ok to ask on this site?)


    Is there something in the e-shop that is NOT virtual console and cannot be played? or is anything on the e-shop playable with a new r4?

    o
    Nothing eshop specific is playable on an r4 right now. If you look around the forums or google DS emulators, I'm sure you'll find the emulators you want. The Gameboy Color emulator is called Lameboy, and the genesis/mega drive one is called jenesisDS, IIRC.
