    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Is there still no way to play NDS roms on Gateway/CFW?

    Thanks! I just don't want to have to install the exploit on my 3DS over and over again.


    Also, followup qurstion. I have the MSET exploit installed on my N3DS... what would happen if I were to put in an R4 card in under Gateway mode? Or even Sysnand? Thanks!

    It hasn't happened in 5 years and most likely won't happen in the future neither, so please don't come back every few months to ask the same thing over and over as many people do.

    No, you still can't run DS games without a flash cart. There was a guy working on a port of Desmume to 3DS, but I don't think we ever heard any more about it (it'd probably be slower than molasses anyway).

    Wait, if you have a gateway, can't you just load your backups onto the blue card and then reinstall the exploit whenever you want to go back to 3ds games?

    LOL. Genius.

    Perhaps while he's at it, he should go for enough fund to buy the most powerful laptop that can handle all emulators available at the moment. (punt intended)

    Few things. I have an R4 card. Original one. Second, I've got a pretty awesome PC which can easily handle the newest games on the highest settings ;)

    I just don't want to go through the trouble of installing MSET again after each run-through.

    If you mean a ds emulator then i think that would be impossible even for n3ds, unless magic.
    Ds flashcarts are cheap except if you want perfection dstwo is the right choice. Lastly im curious to know how this dstwo plus work.

    Yes, Desmume is a popular DS emulator, and that's why I said it would probably be slower than molasses. I'm well aware that the 3DS (both old and new) are much too slow to emulate the DS. :P

    How hard is it to navigate to the ROP installer after playing a DS game and pressing "A" to run it? Do you need voice commands because your fingers don't work anymore?

    What does your PC have anything to do with your question?

    This thread should close.

    It doesn't work for several reasons (and I've tested this). DS games, while signed, will not run under TWL_FIRM off the NAND in place if DSiWare due to it not having access to it's save hardware on the cart, among other issues. And having anything which loaded ROMs off the SD would also be impossible because the SD card is disabled in TWL_FIRM shortly after starting the firm.

    At the end of the day their is no way as of yet to play a NDS game without a flashcart, and any attempt to do so will run the risk of clearing the NDS Profile exploit code.

    Good news is since you said you have a N3DS, there is a very good chance that the profile exploit code will stick even after playing a NDS game. There was a thread a few weeks/months back about how to make it stick since it seemed to do so for a lot of people but not for others. No idea if it only stayed after using a retail NDS cart or even after using a flashcart. I'd link it but I'm feeling pretty damn lazy atm, sorry.

    It's a GW clone. It functions EXACTLY like GW and even requires you to place the GW launcher.dat file on the root of your SD Card. That said, apparently any DSTWO cart purchased in the last 2 months is apparently a DSTWO+ cart with a DSTWO sticker. If you bought a DSTWO after early August and the cart you got does not have a screw on the back, it apparently is update-able with the DSTWO+ update and will actually run .3ds files.
