    I did a quick search on both google and here, but found no answers to my question...

    Is there an emulator similar to Hamachi (VPN) that would allow your DS to believe it was connected locally, but yet be connected via the computer / internet? It would be pretty nice to play a few of these NDS local only games via the internet (e.g. Chessmaster, etc.)

    I dont understand but il try my best. Im thinking your saying if u can go on the internet with ur ds. Yes. You need a wireless router. Google: DsHoBro V.03(current version on 11/15/08)

    No, that's not what he's saying, and DSHobro is an awful browser. There are much better ones out there, like DSO.

    I understand what your saying, and say... I've never thought of that, but it'd be awesome. Think of all the games that should have had wifi...

    But, no, I've never seen a way to do it.

    Not download play, although that might be another possible application.. I was referring to playing a game over the internet that was only set up for local wifi, such as Mario Party, to you use a more popular example.

    Thanks for the reply guys, and if it is impossible, then that sucks :/

    Why do you say this? DS Hobro is far more awesome than the DSO browser as far as I'm concerned, because it doesn't destroy websites.

    Atm no.
    But im sure it could be coded in eventually in an emulator.. even though over the internet 'p2p' to simulate ds local play, will probably fail.
    I remember trying something similiar for gba games and most games were unplayable over the internet (direct local network was better). Even though we lived in the same city.

    Ni-Fi games require sub 10ms pings, which is virtually impossible ovre the internet.

    The creator of the homebrew DS Wifi library, Stephen Stair, started a tunneling project long ago, but it appears he hasn't made any progress for months. See http://akkit.org/dstunnel/index.html for the old project page.
