Reminds me of when Xbox live for OG xbox was shut down and people kept games/servers of Crimson Skies open for like 2 weeks after it shut off.

Man I miss that game.

That's pretty cool. Didn't know that could be done without Nintendos permission.

The DS and Wii are both hacked devices - using this custom server structure requires the ability run homebrew software.
