    Testing it out right now, and I gotta say, I never would have imagined this happening on a 3DS. Nice work!

    Do you have this running? so many games from this era ran in dos rather than Windows. A proper dos emulator would be very useful.

    I haven't had a chance to set it up, but I'm going to be working on it in a few here.

    This isn't just windows, it's dosbox which can run windows.

    doesn't this require SDL? do you have a functioning SDL port too?

    No, it uses retroarch, as they have a dosbox. I could never get sdl working.

    It should just be a .img. Idk what that is.

    I don't think it can connect to the internet. If you can install it then transfer to the .img, then yeah "installing" programs is possible.

    Probably not, I don't think you could get any insanely useful 16-bit DOS applications from the Internet noawdays. I doubt it has internet capability but you can try.
