    Has anyone tried adjusting the contrast on this video that was made in the dark for some mysterious reason?

    You seem awfully eager to claim that this is fake.
    Going off of what Shutterbug said, this is very real, and there's nothing here that suggests otherwise.

    EDIT: Ninja'd. Message was to elhobbs. Sorry!

    if you can tell me how you built it, I might be able to try it out right now, or I can just do it myself :P

    still a good find nonetheless

    Here we go!

    If you have a windows 95 image on the sd card named "W95.img", then running "win3ds.bat" with the core will boot windows.

    Otherwise, use any dos exe in the same way.

    Also, to use arrows, change settings -> input -> user 1 binds -> device type to "Joystick with 4 btns/4 axis + kbd arrows"

    EDIT: oh wow it's too big. Just a second...
    Uploading to dropbox, give me a few minutes.

    And here it is!

    There is quite a bit here to suggest this is fake. And very little to suggest it is real. I have been wrong before though. I would be quite happy to be wrong though :)

    You run it with retroarch, assuming you got the W95.img file

    Can you run .exe files on this or does it have to be a .bat file (haven't downloaded yet) Internet being slow as :/

    You can run exe files, and I think .com(dos executables), and ofc .bat

    I got mine from (google this)"iDOS windows 95"

    Basically you can run whatever you can run on Windows 95, that is, 16-bit applications, so .exe, .com, and .bat files will all work.
