Planning on buying along with a friend, we're both at 9.0.0-20Ε and the site says the new firmware is coming soon so we're buying it preemptively.
Is the 1st option we looked at as well but it says its out of stock.
List of resellers on their site has some options for each region so I suggest >>276516342 looks there.
Yeah I'm looking in my region which is US and none offer Paypal. I want to use my Visa giftcard on other sites but I only put a set amount for the particular site I had in mind in which the other ones charge higher than it.
>Hatsune Miku - Project Mirai 2
>Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
>New Super Mario Bros. 2
>Super Mario 3D Land
>Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
And I'm planning on a lot more.
I have to wait until the 9.2 update, so I can use my 2DS.
Hey, I need something to play with this
grillI met at work. This gets me a higher chance at a gf anon.
As cool as it looks, no thanks.
>Q: Can I play games online?
>A: Yes, but only with patched roms, but patched roms WILL NOT use your current game save.
So if I make a save with the patched rom from the beginning I can keep using that in offline?
Still a bit bitter that the translation project for Digimon Adventure 01 stopped because they wanted to translate the other game instead. I'd really rather have my anime game than Digimon World 3.1. And why there was never a Digimon Adventure 02 or Digimon Tamers game is beyond me.
Play some SSB or something.
We do, but I down her everytime. And fuck letting her win.
I don't see why not, as long as you use the patched rom while playing offline.
20 games is around £600
I realize the homebrew scene hasn't had a chance to grow big yet so its a stupid question but anyway.
Is it possible to modify saves? The idea would be to take a save from a cartridge and use it on a patched rom for online. Is something like that possible yet?
Bummer. That actually makes some legit purchaces I wanna make even after I get Gateway meaningless.
I'm guessing online play without gateway does require firmware updating right?
>Is it possible to modify saves?
Yes, but only eShop, card2 (saves to rom itself) and CIA converted games. Gateway fucked up the encryption on regular saves.
>The idea would be to take a save from a cartridge and use it on a patched rom for online. Is something like that possible yet?
I don't know about that.
>Yes, you heard us right! If you have a 3DS, or a 2DS or a New 3DS system that is running System Firmware 9.0.0-20, 9.1.0-20J or 9.2.0-20 then you WILL be able to use it with Gateway 3DS!
It mentions 9.2.0-20, but not 9.2.0-20U
And that in turn means I can use original game cartridges and get online with them?
Please elaborate if possible. Is the procedure something like:
>Gateway emulates firmware.
>Gateway cartridge taken out, original cartridge inserted while emulated firmware still in effect.
Am I right? Alternatively if you're bored just point me to a thread to read up on it if possible.
I wish gateway would give a fucking ETA instead of just saying "lel, it's just around the corner guise"
Bitch, I don't know what that means. Tomorrow? Next week? February? I feel like an asshole checking in every day hoping to see some developments. I don't care if it takes a month, but just tell me if that's the case so I can stop getting my hopes up prematurely.
I did, but not a shill, just waiting on the update.
If I was shilling I would have at least made a pastebin or posted the resellers in the OP.
No idea, but gateway does seem to have more of a following.
They changed that.
I'm guessing you can switch between the 2 modes at will.
So I'll ask again for the sake of confirming.
Will EmuNand classic let me go online with retail games without updating?
If you stuck with me until now pls respond kind anon. My Gateway purchase is hanging by your manly dick of knowledge.
Wait, does that mean you can only play cartridges online? I honestly don't plan on doing much online with 3DS, but it'd be nice if I could go online with pirated games.
Also, is there a save editor for the 3DS pokemon games? I'd like to transfer pokemon from the previous gens, but fuck paying for that pokebank bullshit just to transfer.
Already own Fire Emblem and I have smash on the wii u
You can play online when using EmuNAND Classic mode and a retail cartridge, as long as you have the latest game's update. If Nintendo release a new game patch/update you can't play online anymore unless you can connect to eShop to download it. Do not accept Eshop System update prompt when you are in EmuNAND Classic! It will update your System NAND.
Online doesn't work with ROMs.
Local Multiplayer works fine with ROMs.
Not that guy
But the bravely default jap version has english text?
It says the patched roms do not work with your current game save.
Does this affect classic mode as well or do saves from the retail game work fine?
At this point you should be in /vg/. Make a Peasant Pirate General there.
Really? I dont play too many offline games on my 3ds.
I'm trying to beat SMT4 and planning to get BD but if online play is restricted to updates and shit I might not bother.
If you stay on 9.2, yes. But really, no one picked up his exploit exclusively.
>Online doesn't work with ROMs.
Yes, it does. You have to patch in a valid ID on its header and change the extension to 3dz.
>Local Multiplayer works fine with ROMs.
Not if the games are from other regions.
Oh, I thought it *only* did 3DS roms, period.
Whatever the case, could this mean that in the future we'll get a legit homebrew channel that doesn't require any flashcart or anything. For instance, when the wii was first hacked you had to boot up twilight princess and trigger the exploit every time you wanted to load a program. But soon after, that original exploit was used to install homebrew channel, and from that point on, you didn't have to worry about triggering the exploit every time. It'd be pretty sweet to see something like that for 3DS.
Only thing 'better' about it is that it works on newer firmware. Everything else is far worse. No emunand, no CIA install, no region free, no eshop games, need to physically push a button to switch games. Way too many downsides.
>You have to patch in a valid ID on its header and change the extension to 3dz.
are there keygens that make these, or is it only possible to get a valid exploit by dumping a ROM from your own cartridge? Or are there repositories where people list a bunch of 3DS game IDs for anyone to use?
No, but there are public IDs around. Some people fear Nintendo is logging these and prefer to dump their own keys, although detecting Emunand from their side should be really, really easy and not reliant on ID checks at all.
Did you pick the JP version? I saw a photo of a guy with the original outfits and english text.
Got a JP N3DSLL and a Gateway just sitting here staring at me. The thirst is real.
I don't own a 3ds yet and I'd like to jump in on this piracy shit, too. Where should I start? How do I know if the 3ds/2ds I'm buying is the correct firmware? Are all resellers of the gateway trustworthy? Do I need to buy a specific brand/size of sd card?
In order to play online, you need a .3dz file with it's own Cart ID injected into the header. There are programs that can inject and extract, just google it.
generally, you want to have a Cart ID that no one else is gonna use but there's no real proof that using a public one will get you banned. You can also just make one up and it might work.
and you can extract the Cart ID from games that don't even have online play, too.>>276529050
>I dont own a 3ds
Buy a NEW 3ds from aussie and don't update it
>Are all resellers of gateway trustworthy
I belive so
>Do i need to buy a specific brand/size of sd card
Micro SD card, size doesn't matter, anything above class 4
speaking of, 32gb microsd card on amazon for $12. I know there's actually a system menu limit for games (it's something in the 300's), so I'm not sure what size I should use for the new3dsxl's micro sd card..
alright, thanks guys. I'll probably just use the public ones if no one has been banned yet. And it would just be a matter of going online and getting banned vs never going online anyway, so I might as well.
I'm barely starting to play regular DS games. So far I have
Advance Wars 1+2
FF Tactics Advance
LoZ: The Minish Cap
Advance Wars DS + Days of Ruin
Animal Crossing Wild World
Brain Age 1 + 2
Elite Beat Agents
LoZ Phantom Hourglass
Megaman ZX Advent
Monster Rancher DS
Pokemon Platinum + Black (Own legit HG)
Professor Layton 2 (played 1 already)
What else should I pick up? My supercard arrives tomorrow.
>tackling shit seriously
They can barely into online, much less banning people and such. The most they ever do is just patch an exploit, which doesn't matter
Man, I've been waiting to get on the pirate train ever since I got my 3DS last year and ended up mistakenly getting a 6.1 version rather than 4.x. Been sitting on a GW card just itching to go since then.
>Not waiting for the better card with devs who always bypass Nintendo's Anti Piracy.
Should've said this to begin with, but it's after the game boots. It usually happens when I go to load a level or when I hit start.
All the games I have launch but quite a few have a problem of getting stuck on loading screens, where the little icon will rotate/do whatever endlessly.
Fake poster. But I wouldn't put it against them to release one.
They cracked the new 3DS firmware within a day for the DSTWO when Nintendo released a update that nuked all the DS flashcards for 3 months.
Can I have a moment to compile the info about the whole online thingy?
>Roms need to be patched with IDs on their header to allow online play
>Previous game saves are not usable with Roms online
EmuNAND Classic mode
>Emulates official firmware, runs retail games, supports online play and updates can be applied by logging in Eshop but user must not update when the prompt for it appears.
>Needs to be updated to support online on newer retail games.
>Game saves can be used regurarly both in offline and online.
Feel free to correct anything because I seriously want confirmation on these.
>Advance wars /rythm heaven
I like you, anon.
I'd suggest picking up Fire emblem 7 and 8 as well if you like advance wars, the GBA ones are the best the series has to offer imo.
For the DS i'd suggest getting all the ace attorney games(Ace Attorney, Justice for all, Trials and tribulations, Apollo Justice: Ace attorney, Ace Attorney investigations and Ace attorney investigations 2 with the fan translation patch) and playing them in chronological order.
Ghost trick is a solod 10/10 which is definitely worth getting as well. 999 is also pretty damn good. Warioware:touch is also reccomendable.
Should be enough to keep you busy for a while!
I feel content with just pirating DS games with my supercard, but I'm pleased to know that if I ever want to bypass the region lock I have options now.
I tip my fedora to whoever it was that made this possible. Region locking a shit.
Updated game list.
Can anyone think of something else I should definitely pick up? Other than sequels as I will get those after I finish the relevant game.
So, I've got my JPN N3DS on 9.2, my gateway cards just came in the mail last week.
What else do I need?
Do I need a microSD card? SD card?
Someone mentioned getting a cable to be able to copy your nand or something like that?
Could you be even more blatantly jealous of his shit?
That dude was right though. That theme looks fucking terrible.
You should change it. ;^)
I don't get why you guys buy this shit. 3DS is still getting updated all the fucking time. In 2 weeks tops you are going to be on an old version and not gonna be able to play your vidya online or connect to the store because it will want to update.
Thanks for the help. I think I have enough games for a while now. Bye.
Go fuck yourself windowsbabby. My dwm setup shits on your vanilla aero shit. Even that guy's windows theme shits on your own garbage aero theme.
No. I'm going to continue to say things I want about topics I have limited knowledge in. That way I will have butthurt people correct me and I will learn what I wanted to learn while doing zero effort or research.
>afraid to buy these
gonna need some more context than that. It's perfectly naturally to want to know what gateway is and how it works before buying one. And hell, I wouldn't buy one right now because we don't even actually have the latest hacks released. It's foolhardy to buy one now and just hope that everything goes according to keikaku
There's GTA, go for Spirit Tracks than PH, get Bowser's Inside Story, Ace Attorney, Oracle of Seasons, Super Mario, Riviera: The Promised Land, 007 for the GBA, that shit was great. And the FE games looked nice, but I haven't tried them yet.
K, guessing you mean the kickass link. which file do I install? HOW do I install it (they all appear to be .cia files, which I need dev menu to install.....), why isnt there a comprehensive FAQ for this shit?
Seriously, at this p
It's a Fat32 issue. Since cards above that come with exFat they can't recommend them. So you just need to reformat as Fat32, which will work all the way up to 2TB, not that SD cards are that large yet.
Will Gateway allow me to music mod in Smash?
Also, when will there be extensive 3DS game mods, if ever? Would love to add this guy into Mario Kart and Smash.
fucking post got cut off.
seriously, at this point you guys should be making a general on /vg/, with FAQs and anti spoonfeeding noobproof guides in it. its only going to get worse once the new update comes....
Go research this shit yourself. I'm all for helping people with confusing shit, but you're so fucking lazy you can't even google something properly.
Go to GBAtemp and read the stickied threads you piece of shit
>discussing collections of digital and free games
whats the fucking point?
Go fucking kill yourself faggot.
>/vg/ "video games" general
>waifushit threads, katawa shoujo #7623, starcraft generals devolving into husbando threads
Thats a lot of video games there.
one last question. I found DevMenu.cia and DevMenu.csu in the devkit 2.3.4 folder. One, is that a good one to use, and two, do I need BOTH the .csu file and the .cia file, or just the .csu?
Oh and before you give me shit for not wanting to help you, consider this: just telling you what you want to know won't help you when you have another problem down the line.
Do you know what the difference between .cia or emunand is? Do you know anything at all beyond "drag and drop the rom and go"? If you took the time to learn how it all works, you won't need to come running back here and asking for more help if/when something fucks up (probably you as usual), you'll know what went wrong and how to fix it.
K, thanks man.
So the WiiU and 3DS generals dont count as hardware generals AS WELL AS video games generals?
Hey, so far every other piece of the gateway puzzle has had very comprehensive guides on what to do and what NOT to do. Only thing I needed was an actual link to dev menu, which someone else has kindly helped me with, and I double checked what to do before attemting it on a board that usually has rapid responses compared to sites like neoFAG and GBAsekritclub. You just keep being a bitter piece of shit shouting "HUR DUR BOARD CULTURE NO SPOOONFEEDING DA NOOBS GUYSH."
>Everyone begging for help setting up Gateway™ gets spoonfed.
>Every post asking about other flash cards or cracks gets multiple posts saying how it's inferior to Gateway™.
It's an advertising thread, pure and simple. It gets reposted pretty much daily.
Well, what do the other cartridges have over gateway?
The sky3ds has higher firmware support because it's simulating a real 3ds cartridge, but what else besides that is worth getting for someone who has a 9.2 3ds or lower when you can install dlc, themes and updates through gateway?
Hell, if they managed to get all of gateway's features on firmware that gateway doesn't support, then I'd go out and get one, but so far they haven't.
You can literally get devmenu from 3dsiso. I found it without even looking for it. How about you stop being a lazy shit?
That's because they are video game consoles. You don't see generals for every bit of hardware do you?
bummer, I updated my 3DS just yesterday. It downloads automatically and just notifies to install, so I do to retain online functionality.
Now, on 9.3.0-21, is there any hope from any 3DS homebrew card in the near future?
If I have a US 3ds with a bunch of games/saves on the mem stick and i get a japanese n3dsLL and the gateway, could i transfer any of my save data over and download US roms for the gateway to play the save data with?
Are we on track to getting a based 3DS emulator that actually plays commercial games?
You should be fine, they currently have 7.0-9.2 done and said they're working their way down. Just keep an eye on their website, and worse comes to worst you buy a game and update to a version that is supported.
Use http://3ds.essh.co/ for reference on what updates each game carries. And remember to check the region.
They booted Ocarina of Time recently. I think it will be a good 2 years until it runs anything at full speed.
Feel free to shit on my taste.
Quick question. I can transfer my legit-cart game saves onto my new gateway sd card and still use them regularly right? I didn't see this aasked. I plan on using the gateway and games I want to own (so far, two). Sitting on 9.2 and using the blue card to play some old DS games for the bigger screen (dem jaggies). 9.2's almost here, bruhs.
Seems like Gateway forgot to patch something for .cia files when it comes to themes. If they patch the checks not only should we have access to themes from other regions, we'll be able to make our own, as there's already an editor.
Is the exploit even out yet? Haven't updated my 3DS, but also was wondering how do you update the firmware? Do you need a old 3DS or is it done outside the 3DS?
Not the 9.2 update no. You update the firmware from your 3DS by going into "other settings" and "system update". If you want to update the emuNAND you will have to go through an extra step.
