Does anyone else find that the little flap at the back of the 3DS' cradle is almost impossible to open without actually taking the 3DS out, and that once you have opened it, it is difficult to get the cartridge out without actually lifting up the 3DS?

Sure, it is difficult, though I don't see why you would want to leave it in the cradle and swap games...
Now the Circle Pad Pro... that's more of a frustration.

I don't want to, I just think that flap seems pretty useless. Unless they are allowing room for a future peripheral, like a big cartridge or something...

I've noticed that; I'm not even entirely sure why it's there. It does help to be able to put the stylus in if it's open and I don't lift it, however.

    The eBay listing said that it won't read discs, but it actually does although FMV is laggy as well as CDDA. So it most definitely needs re-calibrating.

    I wish I could get things from ebay, just sit there and spend tonnes of money

    Why it took so long is because I've been on Discord throughout my life, but have met a lot of toxic people on there and was always treated a lot like shit.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    @cearp,
    Thank you so much! :)

    @DinohScene,
    I know right. I did originally have an account here on GBATemp back in 2021, hardly ever used it so I ended up deleting it.

    Reason was because of Discord, was so attached to it that it affected my mental health really bad.
