And another thing I forgot to say:

BE CAREFUL! If you download a rom of a game you have not bought, IT IS ILLEGAL!

Watch out!

Piracy is legall if you download a game that is old and you cant buy it anywhere or when you want to play it on a pc and you dont have money to buy a console or a thing you can play it on.

Erm...I hope you guys know this is just called an Emulator, and you can probably find one for almost every console on the planet. (Except for the console around the time of the Comador 64. You have to find those yourself.)

Lol, thi is illicit because you did not purchase the game and you can be fined up to $50000 or 12 years jail. Same goes for R4

I think that your punitive estimates are too high, but you are right; this does infringe on copyright laws. The emulator itself is legal, as is ownership of an "R4" type Nintendo DS cartridge, but, obtaining copyrighted ROM files without paying the copyright owners for them is illegal.

i checked my countries copyright laws and infact i underestiamted it said "liable to fine up to 12 million" I think thats if you created 1000 roms or sumthing

Wow...I guess the government is really crackin' down on what amounts to petty theft.

author
knex_mepalm made it! (author)knex_mepalm2009-09-17

Oops, i meant liable to fine up to $12000000 if you breach copyright laws. One or Two roms are like $480 but if multiple breaches then finable from the above amount.

That tends to happen, it is a broken ROM. You can fix it with ceritain software or you can simply replace the ROM with another one that is not broken. This happened to my GrandTheft Auto DS ROM on my R4.

The program i use is dslazy.exe
How to use can be found on YouTube.

i don't think its illegal to play your paid for games on the computer if you can download them when the ds is broken.... which ours is... hinge second time, now the directional keypad... $200 a pop to replace a ds... the big desktop computer is much hardier.

It's a shortcut. make a shortcut with the line 'shutdown -r -f -t 5 -c' this will restart the computer in 5 seconds. to shutdown, replace 'r' with 's' I won't guarantee this to work, but it's worth a shot!
