How to Play Minecraft on Your Nintendo DS with DScraft

How to Play Minecraft on Your Nintendo DS with DScraft

Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time, but did you know that you can play it on your Nintendo DS? Thanks to a homebrew adaptation called DScraft, you can explore and create your own worlds on the handheld console. In this article, we will show you how to install and play DScraft on your DS.

What is DScraft?

DScraft is a DS homebrew adaptation of Minecraft, developed by smealum. It is not an official port of the game, and it is not associated with Minecraft or Mojang in any way. DScraft is based on the classic mode of Minecraft, which means there is only exploration and creation in this version. There is no survival mode, enemies, crafting, or multiplayer. However, DScraft still offers a lot of features, such as:

Minecraft Nds

  • Ability to add and remove blocks

  • Nice terrain generation (including cliffs, plains, small forests, lakes...)

  • Basic cave generation

  • Map streaming from file, meaning really big maps can be used (1024x1024 maps are fully playable)

  • Texture pack support (the game's default texture pack is eldpack)

  • Saving

  • Day/night cycle, clouds, dawn/dusk, stars...

  • More or less dynamic lighting system (torches!)

  • Basic bottom screen (working buttons, inventory)

  • Tons of blocks!

  • (Basic) Dynamic water

  • Hand!

How to Install DScraft on Your DS?

To play DScraft on your DS, you will need a few things:

  • A Nintendo DS console (any model will work)

  • A flashcard that can run homebrew software (such as R4, Acekard, DSTT...)

  • A microSD card that can fit in your flashcard

  • A computer with a card reader

  • The latest version of DScraft (you can download it from here)

Once you have everything ready, follow these steps:

  • Extract the downloaded RAR file and find the folder 'dscraft' and the file 'DScraft.nds'.

  • Copy both the folder and the file to the root of your microSD card.

  • If you want to use pre-generated worlds or texture packs, copy them to the 'dscraft/worlds' and 'dscraft/packs' folders respectively. You can find some worlds and packs on the official website.

  • If you want to create your own worlds, use the mapGen program that is included in the download. Simply execute it and follow the steps. New worlds can be installed by copying .map files to the 'dscraft/worlds' folder.

  • Eject your microSD card from your computer and insert it into your flashcard.

  • Insert your flashcard into your DS and turn it on.

  • Navigate to the 'DScraft.nds' file and launch it.

How to Play DScraft on Your DS?
