It allows you to launch games from any region using the well known DS profile exploit in System Settings.

Features

  • No internet requirement.
  • More stable compare to regionthree.

Installation

Dependancies

  • ropMultiloader by Cyan (included) or another working ROP chain installer.
  • A DS mode flash cart that works with your firmware version.

Installing

Firmware 4.x:

Install ROP using a DS mode flash cart (choose Launcher.dat 4.x when using the ropMultiloader).

Copy the Launcher.dat file to the root of your SD card.

Firmware 6.x:

Install ROP using a DS mode flash cart (choose MSetForBoss.dat 6.x when using the ropMultiloader).

Copy the Launcher.dat file to the root of your SD card.

Compiling

If you wish to compile the source yourself then you will need to:

  • Download ARMIPS.
  • Change the ARMIPS_PATH variable in the Makefile accordingly.

User guide

After putting the game cart in your 3DS goto:

System Setting -> Other Settings -> Profile -> Nintendo DS Profile.

Then wait a few seconds for your game to launch.

Limitations

Requires a DS flash cart for initial set up.

Cannot use another mset launcher.dat on 4.x at the same time such as gateway (if there's a ninjhax file manager out there that can rename files, that could get around this).

Only works on v4.x and 6.x (regionthree works up to v9.5).
