    I have no idea how exactly it all works, but I do know it is kind of old, but back then there wasn't yet a way of playing 3DS games, but I know there is now and I want to know if it is viable.

    Supposedly it's a R4i 3DS (Revolution for DS) Gold card, came with an SD card, pen and the card itself. Is this card a dead end or is it usable?

    R4(R4i) card can only play DS games, can't play 3DS roms.

    so, your only choice is Gateway 3DS(V4.1-V9.2x, recommend) or SKY3DS(Above V9.2.x, recommend)

    I see, thanks for the fast replies. If it's not too much, how do I use this card to play DS games?

    I thought there'd be a simpler tutorial for this kind of things. Guess I'll have to do a little research myself, but thanks.

    EDIT: Seems a lot harder than I thought. I can't seem to find a tutorial that explains what this and that is, nor that efficiently works. Could it be that this card is dead (as in, it's not going to work anymore)?

    Already answered you in the second post. READ IT AGAIN AND FOLLOW THE LINK.

    DS related tutorials are found here: http://gbatemp.net/forums/nds-tutorials-faqs.233/

    I suggest you stop trying to bump for another answer. Your not going to get a better answer that is straight forward as this.

    All I see in the second post is it confirming that it can, in fact, play non-3DS games, but I don't see a specific tutorial or anything of the kind. And linking me to an entire sub-forum isn't very helpful, as I've already looked around and couldn't find a working/direct way of doing it.

    Also, no need to get so passive-aggressive.
