    Okay, I'll fess up. I don't have the programming skills to do this, I'm just throwing the idea around (and hoping somebody picks it up) [​IMG]. But wouldn't it be nice to never have to touch dlditool ever again and just have an NDS app with a file explorer that would apply the patch?

    ....and yet as I type this, I realize how dumb it sounds. [​IMG]

    Actually, I don't think this idea is too bad. Or even better: have something built into your flash card firmware that could patch the DLDI-compatible homebrew on the fly. Each card would have it's own patch built-in so the same homebrew binary would run an any card without patching it first.

    I'm not sure if it's technically possible, it very well might be though [​IMG]

    It's a good idea, NDS roms are patched on the fly anyway, perhaps there is a way to have homebrew dldi patch on the fly...

    It would be great if something like that could be done.

    I think someone already patched the dlditool to work on dslinux. I found it somewhere on the dslinux forums.

    I would dig up the exact location but I am currently supposed to be programming an artificial intelligence.

    If I remember and no one beats me to it I will dig it up again.
