Okay. This is a tutorial on how to get your old favourite Lucasarts games running on a nintendo DS and nintendo DS lite.

I managed to do this at 11 years old. I'm 15 now, and adding games like crazy!

I guarantee you this is an easy guide :-D

Step 1: Make sure you have a nintendo DS

Make sure you have a nintendo DS. i know it's crazy, but it's a key element :-D
Mine has a Disney Gamer sticker on it from one of my sister's games lol.

Step 4: Buy a MicroSD chip.

Now you need to buy a MicroSD chip. They're tiny, so don't lose it when you recieve it! You can buy them from eBay for a cheap price.


done that? Okay, let's go...

Step 6: Extracting the Kernal

First, make a  new folder on your desktop called 'ds Kernal'
(It's just to make everything neater when extracting)

download the flash drive kernal on to your desktop:
(This enables the flash drive to work properly.)

Place the kernal you have just downloaded into the 'ds kernal' folder you have just created.

Right click the Kernal 1.18 and select 'extract here'.

Step 7: Installing SCUMMVM

Next, create another new folder on your desktop called 'SCUMMVM'. There are a lot of files when downloadin SCUMMVM, so this folder will just keep it neat.
Download SCUMMVM into the 'SCUMMVM' folder you have just created. Extract again.

And i know lego starwars is lucasarts haha! I have it on PS2 :) XX
P.S It is a Lucas arts game
