    So i said screw it and hacked Sky's DiskWriter.

    I have removed the game limit restriction of 31 games, however there is just 1 thing to note ~ I have not tested this as i do not own a Sky3DS. I just did it out of pure boredom.

    Do backup your saves before using this, i am not responsible for any corrupted saves/games on your sd cards. You use this at your own risk.

    To be honest though, there shouldn't be any problems with this unless it was the fault of Skys code.

    Enjoy





    Edit: I have removed the link due to some problems, i will upload a new version once theres a solution for the current issues.

    i would say, cool, but i never go over 15 games on the sky3ds, takes otherwise to long to go back to my first game ;)

    [EDIT]
    Wish i could do cool stuff with programming/hacking when i'm bored!
    But i bet others wish the could do cool stuff with food when the are bored :P

    Its just for those certain people who do, although looking at Sky's code i can see some things that could be changed for performance as well as well as features :rolleyes:

    Just some data writing improvements, faster write speeds.

    That would be good as long as no errors are caused have you seen anything to do with games scrolling quicker

    Hey, wouldn't mind if you could give me/us the source of the DiskWriter?
    It would be fun to learn how you decompiled (and/or deobfuscated) the application (if the app doesn't use a JIT framwork lel)

    So very awesome!
    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    ...Just tried it.

    UPDATE
    Not yet perfect.
    It will write to your card in an unlimited manner but to others I would wait before using this.
    Proceed with caution. Im in the process of reformatting the card and rewriting.
    After the 31st game, the 32nd game will read and play...but the 33rd+ game the card locks with an error.
    Wait until VC can fix this before using. I can continue to test. But, if you are unsure, wait.

    Thank you for testing it, glad to know it works :P

    The ones who programmed the DiskWriter are retarded. They didnlt even obfuscate their release.

    Just an FYI for anyone interested..... I plan to set up an open source implementation of the DiskWriter......


    As far as im aware thats not possible, its a restriction of the 3DS rather then ROM/Cart.
