I tried to get a 3ds emulater, and now I'm unsure if there really is one. I had to go through questionaires and such to get a feature for the 3ds emulater, which I don't want to have to go through.

Basically my question is, 'Is there an actual 3ds emulater, and where can I get it, without fuss. I wanna play the new professor Layton

A 3DS emulator doesn't exist since the 3DS itself isn't hacked yet.

Besides that, its wrong to steal current gen games. >.< Noone sells GBAs anymore, however 3DS is relatively brand new. If people don't buy the 3DS, Nintendo won't make a next gen handheld, and then where would we be?

If one was to hack the 3DS, a special program would be needed just for the picture files, not to mention the save files or games. In other words, your gonna have to buy the game or wait a couple (or more) years.

A friend on MSN told me once she was playing Harvest Moon 3DS on a 3DS emulator.

Not sure whether I believe her, but yeah.

The only 3DS "Emulator" is that questioner one which is just hoax.
There's no functional emulator for 3DS yet. Maybe DeSmuME developers go for it in future :D

Like I just said, there ARE no 3DS emulators. Theres only some fake sites meant to get your information.

Theres people working on it. I doubt DeSmuME is, but I know people are. And as I've said before, there are no programs that open Nintendo's 3D picture files, not even in a 2D format. Even DeSmuME can't solve that.

As for now, just buy the game or wait.

Now I'm angry. I JUST SAID that there is no working 3DS emulator. They're all scams. Just deal with it.

The BIOS is the reason why there's no emulator.
BIOS does not exist.

Nope, there is currently no way to actually play (emulate)a 3DS game on your computer. If you see an "working emulator that plays 3DS games", it's most likely a virus. I'm guessing it will be at least 2-3 years before it's even available since the 3DS is current gen, but that's just me.

P.S.: Always remember to support Nintendo and buy the game you emulate! ^ ^

We might be getting a emulator sooner then you'd expect.

A 3DS flashcart is supposed to be released sometime mid this month. One that can play 3DS games. Cards have been sent out to some sites for reviewing so card is most likely legit.

It's a first gen card so, really, it's going to absolutely suck... But still, it's progress.

And the 3DS decapping project has been fully funded. So, hopefully, some of the secrets that the 3DS's SOC contains will be revealed.

There's currently no emulator for the Nintendo 3DS, but I would absolutely love to see one become a reality!

But, having said that... 3DS ROMs need the NAND data in order to synchronize with the game itself, otherwise they simply won't run at all. So if we were to build a 3DS emulator, we'd need the NAND binary data extracted from the 3DS, and we'd have to first try emulating the NAND data before beginning emulation of 3DS ROMs, because NAND data is important and essential for synchronization between the game and the amount of play coins in the NAND Flash storage.

From what I've heard... there has been a Japanese version NAND that has been dumped somewhere online. I'm not exactly sure if it's true or not, but we'll have to see.

Let's hope that we'll sooner or later hack the Nintendo 3DS, let's start learning some A+ or something and start researching the 3DS hardware data. Because remember... it doesn't have to matter how hard something is, we can achieve it... we can fully hack the Nintendo 3DS. It's just a matter of getting around to doing it and having enough knowledge about disassembling and reassembling computers and electronic devices, as long as you have that knowledge... you'll be bound to start researching the Nintendo 3DS and look into how it's data worked.

The only thing is... only very few people have actually bothered to research the Nintendo 3DS, most people that used to hack consoles like the Wii and Nintendo DS have all moved on to other things and probably cannot be bothered since they're getting older and having less time to do stuff, which completely understandable.

My advice would be to try and do as much research on devices as you can while you have the time.

Remember, nothing is impossible! ;)

I've tried to put this to rest several times for a few simple reasons that I shall repeat now:
1) All current 'Emulators' are viruses.
2) The 3DS is current gen, making it ethically wrong to emulate it.
3) Current DS Emulator creators still have problems (Desmume and No$GBA), and thus will be more inclined to fix current problems than start on new things.
4) Anyone competent enough to hack a 3DS would have to own one, thus taking away the reason for hacking it.

Simply put, I really don't believe this. And even if it is true, it would not be an emulator as it is on the same system. An emulator would be 3DS on PC or other system.

Simply put, I really don't believe this. And even if it is true, it would not be an emulator as it is on the same system. An emulator would be 3DS on PC or other system.
1 - No. I can name a entire list of current emulators that are not viruses. Current 3DS emulators yes, but not all current ones. Overly broad statement - You need to watch out for that.
2 - Didn't stop a whole list of other systems. gba, ds, gc, ps2, wii... All of those were current gen when the first emulator came out.
3 - Yes, and? These groups will be inclined to work on, perfect, their emulators. But that won't stop other groups from starting their own projects. That said, no$gba still had some kinks to work out on GBA emulation. Didn't stop Martin from adding in DS emulation.
4 - Yes and no. Depends on the type of hack they are working on, and why. They might be hacking it to try and remove the region lock. They might be hacking it because hey, why not?

Anyway, it's progress. It's not a emulator, but a working flashcard is a good start. I can't remember the exact dates but I do think that the DS also had a flashcard released that played commercial games before a emulator that could play commercial games was released. They were crap compared to later cards though, but they still generated more interest in DS hacking. Even if the flashcard doesn't provide helpful information for making a emulator, the additional interest in 3DS hacking that it will spur on will be of help.

Edit - The real limiting issue though for 3DS emulation will be hardware. The hardware requirements jump a lot per generation and they don't really scale equally over generations. Compare the hardware the GBA is based on, and the minimum hardware required to emulate it. Then do the same with DS hardware, and compare the results. The scaling is a lot diffrient between the two. It's going to be even worse for the 3DS.

1) I of course know that all emulators are not viruses. I use several emulators and ROM hack myself. I was speaking in the context of "3DS emulation."
2) And I'd disagree then like I disagree now. It's ethically wrong to emulate current gen.
3) They'd be inclined. Thats all I said.
4) I assume that would be true. However, anyone who says "I want to hack 3DS's for the fun of it." really needs some new hobbies. >.< (Personal Opinion of course)

Regardless, the answer to the original post: "Is there an actual 3ds emulater, and where can I get it, without fuss" is no.

I have a 3ds, but I'm neither willing to crack it open or try to start hacking it. I wouldn't even know where to start.
Plus, those things cost lots of money, so when they get cheaper maybe more people will start to hack it, but of course when a newer system comes out. Like a 5ds or something, lol

Hey, the 3ds emulator for now is a HOAX.

You must wait for some years like Dolphin Emulator.And If there is a new generation system game emulator now (3ds), Nintendo could suffer a financial loss/bankruptcy.

Guys, the 3DS Emulator is always a great possibility. The fact that many of you said it's going to be here in a couple of years is wrong? The 3DS emulator will be here sooner than you think. GameFreak systems have always been difficult to hack into, but nonetheless it's not impossible. The 3DS Emulator will only be compatible with Windows 8, XP and above. It will work with both 32- bit and 64- bit systems. However, performance will be slower in the latter.

The 3DS emulator involves a lot oof graphics and so you can expect it to be a little over 250 MB... Apart from that, if you dont have an updated graphic card, it may be a bit trouble for you. But it's not downloadable at the moment. Do /NOT/ spend a single penny on emulators. They're always free. Anything otherwise is ********.

Chao`
