    If you have an Android or iOS device, download the free app Fing to scan your wireless network. Your 3DS should show up under the name "Nintendo".

    I have an Apple Airport Express router with 2.4/5 GHz simultaneous dual-band operation, 802.11a/b/g/n, 150 mbps, and ethernet ports. Would this be able to stream Pokemon Sun/Moon smoothly without it getting choppy/laggy? (Sorry, really new at this)

    "It depends" :) Part of this is based on your computer's performance, but any reasonable modern Mac running Sierra should be suitable.

    At the moment, that is not possible. NTR runs as an additional layer on top of the 3DS firmware but when you boot DS games, the console actually quits the 3DS firmware and enters the DSi firmware mode. As a result, NTR also gets terminated and screen capture won't work.

    BootNTR Selector works on 11.2, provided that you have CFW and recording only works on n3DS systems.

    Yes it is. If you have CFW, just follow the tutorial in the first post to get BootNTR and screen recording up and running.

    Just wondering, what causes the lower frame rates and performance drop when attempting to stream at higher scale factors (e.g. 4x)? When using the original NTR Viewer setup on Windows I didn't notice any difference in performance between 1x and 4x. Is it a Mac-specific limitation?

    I guys i'm having a problem connecting from the debugger to the n3DS, I've located the problem and it is the following:

    My computer motherboard is using the awful "KillerLan Ethernet adapter" thus my computer is located in other network different from the rest of the devices of my homek indeed ip from computer is 93.XXX.XXX.XXX and the one from 3ds 192.XXX.XXX.XXX

    I run WNetWatcher from either my laptom and desktop computer, the one on the 192 network finds the ip from the 3ds, but it is not finded when running WNetWatcheron the KillerLan network.

    I've tested from my laptop if i was able to connect, and i could stream, however my laptop has a very low performance. Anyone has aany idea of how to solve the KillerLan problem?

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. Perhaps the way the window is being scaled is different or the settings are different. I believe tho the scaling is happening on the *3DS* side, making larger image frames, taking more data to emit.

    What settings are you seeing to ntrviewer?

    The NitroStream app crashes whenever i try to click on any of the options, I can still press enter to set the connection, and I can manually change my ip adress via the config, but thats it, and I really watn to change the orientaion of the screen which is impossible when the ui crashes when I click anywhere on the program, Im on windows 10 and installed python, .net, and have the folders in the right spot, its just this program, any help would be appreciated.

    I think the scaling method might be different, which could explain why larger NTR Viewer sizes will run at lower frame rate on Mac.

    Currently I am streaming the top screen only at 90% quality, it works fine at 2x but visibly drops in frame rate at 3x-4x. On Windows, NTR Viewer scaling is done on the PC side so I get the same frame rate on 4x as on 2x.

    So the view scales when it is resized manually?

    I will look at the source code of ntrviewer and see if I see any "aha!" thing but it is a straight compile from the source.

    UPDATE - After looking thru the source, what I need to see is the actual cmdline switches being sent to ntrviewer.exe

    hey yall. weird problem happening in ntr viewer. i had to format my sd card recently. since then, i'm getting a solid black screen from ntr viewer. i've replaced all of the ntr files, i've got the same ip settings and file structure as before formatting, and still nothing. in nitro stream, i've tried connecting then sending patch, sending patch then connecting, and connecting without patching, and all give me the same result. nitrostream gave me an error at first saying it couldn't locate ntr viewer EDIT: was able to recreate the error, the code it gives me is as follows
    Connecting
    Connected
    Remoteplay Started.
    NTRViewer not found. Config -> Define NTR Viewer path
    Client will disconnect in 10 seconds.
    Unable to read data from the transport connection: interrupted.
    Disconnected
    Disconnected

    , so i went in config and pointed it to the proper location, and now i get this:

    Connecting
    Connected
    Remoteplay Started.
    Starting NTRViewer.
    System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): ApplicationName='/Applications/WineStaging.app/Contents/Resources/wine/bin/wine /Users/Jaderocc/Desktop/NTRViewer/NTRViewer.exe', CommandLine='-l 1 -t 1 -b 1', CurrentDirectory='', Native error= Cannot find the specified file
    at System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithCreateProcess (System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo startInfo) [0x001ee] in <bd46d4d4f7964dfa9beea098499ab597>:0

    anybody have any idea what i could do about this to get things running normally again?
