    Has there been any attempt to inject .NDS roms into official DSI games? Porting the 3DS' DSI emulator to a .CIA file could help to run DS games. That would be pretty neat.

    Also, are there any good ebook readers that could read manga out there? I would love to read manga on my 3DS.

    EDIT: Also, if someone could make a homebrew save editor for the Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokemon VC games, that would be swell. Porting Pikasav and creating a gui on 3DS for it would probably be the best way to do it. I was able to edit my Gen 2 pokemon save.dat with it.

    I would like to see a .bps file patcher. For smw rom hacks. I know there is a .ips file patcher but that one doesn't support .bps
    Please?

    I'm gonna be that guy and ask about N64 emulation. I'm not expecting it, and I know it's generally seen as impossible since the 3DS is too weak to support it, but the PSP had it in some capacity and isn't the 3DS more powerful?

    I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I'll put it here anyway. I have an idea for an userland exploit. Coaster Creator 3D. It's cheap, and has QR code importing. So... maybe? I know there is a lot more that goes into it than that, but it would be an interesting idea.

    So I don't know how feasible this is, but I'd love to see a .swf player for 3ds. Mainly to run flash games, even if it is limited to lower res files (or if downscaling would help at all), I'd still really want it. I don't mean like built into the browser either, just an app/cia that runs swf files from the SD card.
    Ideally you'd choose for the image to display on the top or bottom screen & use the touch screen as mouse clicks/drags. If the image is displayed on the top screen then the bottom screen would act as a trackpad, with the mouse cursor being visible on the top screen. The D-pad would be mapped to arrow keys and the rest of the buttons would be re-mappable to keyboard keys by the user per swf file.
    The main reason I want this is to play hentai games & I figured no one would take the request of "go make some 3DS hentai games for me!"

    I'd like to ask for a homebrew that allows changing the GBA Virtual Console control mappings. (for installable .CIA GBA games on o3DS)
    I know things like this have been created before, but AFAIK none of them work within the Virtual Console, only within 3DS games themselves.

    as for specifics, I'm playing Pokemon Emerald and want the controls from HG/SS. X for the Start button, and Y for Select.

    Here's some links to projects that already work for 3DS titles, I'd imagine that it would only take some modification of one of these to make it work for the GBA VC.
    https://github.com/Kazo/InputRedirection
    https://github.com/mikahjc/ButtonSwap3DS
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-buttonswap3ds-remap-buttons-on-your-3ds.460891/

    I've tried the button swap homebrew, and sadly it didn't work with GBA VC.

    Thanks for reading :grog::nds:

    What I'd like to see from the big names in this scene is an IDE for 3DS development, something akin to Android Studio or Xcode in that it specializes in development for a particular kind of device and provides support for GUI development alongside the main logic. It would bridge the gap between amateur developers and complex systems such as the 3DS API. It would allow for people learning the system to hit the ground running rather than downloading multiple libraries, figuring out which ones they need, and importing them to Visual Studio.

    Now if there is something like this and I've missed it, I'd be glad to be directed towards it.

    I recently read a thread about a 3DS N64 emulator and why it isn't possible. The reason being that emulation needs really much computing power and the differences in chips make it difficult too. I don't remember the threads name or link, but it was on gbatemp.

    Thats never going to happen. FBI requires kernal access and without any you'll just get errors

    Installation via CIA (regardless of whether legit or not) is a permission given only to certain apps (primarily eShop) when not using CFW. The only way to override that limitation is CFW, when using userland homebrew you are still limited to what functions you were allowed beforehand, just that they do not have to be performed by Nintendo apps.

    Sorry dude, but if that were possible CFW wouldn't be so popular and we wouldn't have had people clamoring for new CFW installation methods every update.

    I'd want a music app thats like 3ds sound but you can play recorded effects over music instead of having the music cut off when you goto sounds.

    Maybe a Homebrew Manual. It's kind of like H&S Information, but you have to install it as a CIA, and it gives you helpful information about how to do use/install certain Homebrew apps.

    Do you have a wifi connection there? If so you just use a mobile app to do calls. If not then it won't work anyway.

    Yeah, I have a Google Nexus 10 with the CSipSimple app and internet, but using a a foot long tablet for calls is so awkward and weird.

    Besides, it doesn't work too good on this because of some kind of conflict thingy that I don't remember.

    I was hoping that maybe the 3DS would fair better with making calls.

    I don't know if it is possible, but it would be nice to have a mobile Java game emulator, to play those old games like Lumines and stuff on the 3DS.
