NDS – Odds & Sods found


This page is similar to the one I’ve created for stuff I’ve found whilst poking around ZX Spectrum files, but it will contain interesting odds and sods from Nintendo DS games.

I have to be very careful with what I upload here as Nintendo are quite trigger happy when it comes to their games and associated IP etc.

(I found out the hard way a few years ago when I uploaded a ripped soundtrack from a game onto the newsgroups – I lost my newsgroup account within a few days!)

Game Text Rips

1000 Crosswords (EU)

This is the full layout and answers for each crossword. All were stored as plain text files in the game’s ROM.

CrossworDS (EU/M5)

This one had the answers stored in CSV files (from memory), so I just converted them to Excel and then into a PDF file.

Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? (USA)

As with the others, these were stored as plain text files in the ROM. Easy enough to extract and then I converted them to a better layout in Excel. Note that the PDF is *large* due to the amount of questions present. Could be handy for those doing a quiz league :)

Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old? (EU)

Whilst the same type of game as the USA one above, the questions were stored in a different way. Never the less, they are now available to download. Maybe use them to teach your own 10 year old?
