  1. The best homebrew games ever made for the Nintendo Entertainment System, together in competition format?! Grab your friends and find out who the best player is, while playing through the best levels in these revisited games.
  2. Homebrew version of WarioWare game series by Nintendo. SaviorXTanren WhatTime: Homebrew game to help children to learn telling the time. Icedaddy Way of the Rain: Draw barriers, to show the waterdrops the right way. Seddy Weskers Day Off The Video Game: Originally a YouTube video. Rockleeace X-Mas Gifts: Christmas game. Programix Xplosion Time!

Applications are installed by copying the necessary files directly to the 3ds/ folder in the root of the SD card (preferred for new designs), or in a subdirectory of 3ds/, in which case said subfolder must be named identically to its executable. Most applications come with two files:

  • [appname].3dsx: The executable.
  • [appname].smdh: The icon/metadata. (Not required in any case, and may be integrated into the .3dsx)
  • [appname].xml: The list of supported targets (i.e. installed titles which the app supports replacing in memory at runtime, thus inheriting its permissions), and of any arguments to be passed to the .3dsx. (Optional)

A standalone .xml file can point to a differently-named .3dsx, launching it with potentially different arguments so that a single application can run in different modes.

The Homebrew Launcher will scan the SD card for all .3dsx files, but will only display an icon for those who have one according to the format described above. Recent enough versions can freely navigate the filesystem to select an application.
