with my old m3 miniSD, i could hold the select-button, and it would boot the normal ds-software.

is there a way i can do that with r4? i have a flashed ds lite.
i tried holding some random button combinations, but nothing worked^^

btw, holding a+b+x+y while bootin results in a whitescreen...

there is a program to dump the DS firmware, but it needs to be hacked to turn into a bootable nds, as olimar did.

Right. You can easily dump your firmware and BIOS files using one of several available dumpers (heck, even DSLinux can dump your firmware if you want) but Olimar stated that it took a lot of work to get it into a *.nds executable file. Thus, he's not making a DS Lite version of it.

    some of the best selling games on the switch are wii u ports (that are priced way too high

    @ColdBlitz, i forgot breath of the wild released for the Wii u
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    $60 for a game that's a decade old might be unheard of on PC but actually is not uncommon on consoles

    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but they don't seem to have done any of those for the switch yet and maybe never will
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I think we all forgot breath of the wild released for the wii u tbh

    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy
