Any way a CIA-installed counter could be made?

    I'm getting worried I'm nearing the 300 CIA limit, so could someone make a counter that counts how many you have installed? It'd be fairly helpful. Thanks!

    What all are you even installing? I don't get how people are even getting halfway to the limit

    Yup, there is a limit to how many applications you can have on your home screen, that's why some people buy flashcarts but either way there are barely even 300 good, 3DS games IMO.

    Not just 3ds games though, also apps and virtual console games. Plus if you know multiple languages you might be able to find 300 or more good 3ds games depending on what you are into since you wouldn't be limited due to a language barrier.

    Who the hell even plays 300 different games on 1 console? I have 67 and I play 4 of them regularly..... If you reach this limit, theres clearly a problem... Make a list of all the games you ACTUALLY play and uninstall the ones you dont. When I say play, I mean regularly.... I dont even know how you would even be interested in that many games.

    This very same limit is why I question why people use VC injects for anything other than AGB_FIRM programs.

    Makes everything look fancy. It's the same reason people use nes, snes, sega genesis, and other games as vc games on wii also instead of using emulators.

    Geez, how big of a SD card do you have? I thought I was bad with my full 64GB but I'm not even close to 300 yet.

    He probably has CIA 3D porn videos installed. Of course that would explain why he is reaching the 300 limit. :teach:

    I have a 64GB and it isn't full yet, but I don't know how many I have installed (I have a lot of VC titles and a lot of 3DS games) and I would like to know just in case.

    Are you implying that VC injects are the bougiest of injects?

    not too much fancy, but i like the extreme convenience of them being in my face, as a constant reminder of what i can play, instead of having to boot into retroarch, plus the emulation is more on point.

    A related question, I'm assuming 300 limit is total, from sideloaded CIAs and also ones downloaded from eShop?

    Isn`t the 300 limit thing just for icons on the home menu? If so, you can use folders buddy =)

    For a rough idea you can see the activity log...really vague idea as it gives the names off all titles opened at least once
