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.

The Japanese can close our servers but we will rise again!

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.
