    In your basement Dick Size: 5 meters.
    This is possible...If you're okay with 5 frames per 2 seconds.

    The New3DS has more hardware that can run exclusive games for it.

    This meaning that running it on the Old3DS would be VERY slow.

    So yes and no.

    Not here
    At the moment no, but theoretically there may be a way to use some them but they will run very slow.(They aren"t usable as is because of course Nintendo make them in mind to don"t let them run in an Original 3DS by any way so that"s because you need to make somethings before).

    Of course not. This is what happens if eShop SNES games are played on an Old 3DS (really a New 3DS, but clock speeded to Old 3DS):

    Did you disable the extra L2 cache too?
    EDIT: NVM, saw you did. Sorry for the trouble.

    Everyone's saying "it's possible, but you won't like it". Is that true? I've literally never seen n3ds exclusive software running on an o3ds. I've seen the underclock/disabled cache thing a lot, showing you how it would run if you could but I've never seen anyone actually do it. I read that some things (for example, SNES VC) relies on modules that the o3ds doesn't even have, but is there other n3ds software that's actually been booted on an o3ds?

    Obviously it's not going to be playable, you can prove that to yourself by seeing the n3ds run it as if it was an o3ds, but strictly out of curiosity it would be neat to know.

    I've never seen anyone running n3DS games on o3DS either, but I imagine the way you'd accomplish that with games that don't require n3ds-only modules would be with exheader and product code editing.

    It will give you an error screen when you try to open it.

    I think FBI might stop you from installing it, I know CIAngel skips over KTR titles if they're in the queue and you have an o3DS.

    It aims for accurate emulation, which requires more RAM than BlargSNES does.
