    Hello! You may have registered for Ninty's Dev portal already, but I have got to tell you some things you must remember so you aren't in any legal issues.

    let's start off with a quote by @TheCruel:
    So, let's start off simple, please read the NDA! A lot of people are like "Eh, I don't care about your legal info, I'll just click I accept." But this is a really stupid move. It'll tell you what not to do, so you don't get C&D'd, sued, etc.

    As much as I love the homebrew, please don't use the SDK for homebrew creation!, as this is breaking the NDA.

    And DO NOT ever leak the tools, this is stupid idea that could get you sued. This is also infringing against copyright.

    (Thanks @VinLark) DO NOT share your creations. You can upload it to the eShop if you have a dev unit 3ds though.

    (Thanks ultramario1998 at /r/3dshacks) You're also not allowed to talk about the contents of certain documents that may or may not be on the portal (eg dev kit prices, lotcheck requirements, &c)


    If I forgot some stuff, please post them here.

    Also,

    Stay safe!
    cya!

    Your doing God's work.

    Now if people like (not even going to mention his name anymore) would read this we would be fine.

    Oh! You forgot that you can't share what you create from these tools.

    Nice disclaimer!

    Although I fear this SDK is already in the wrong hands, even if this disclaimer is still here! :unsure:

    I'm talking about the more immature shitposters of the Temp...

    Honestly, having a background with C&D from Activision for my work on Guitar Zero 2, this is some of the worst shit that could have hit this forum. People complain about the IOSU leaks being bad, but frankly, those leaks are the only thing keeping the community alive right now. On the other hand, this could kill it if it results in a C&D on the board.

    This community is only surviving on the hope of "someday we will get IOSU exploit". Nothing much else...I love the Wii U. It has tons of potential. I don't want to see my chances of unlocking what potential this console has on some shithead leaking the SDK. The real homebrew releases to hopes and dreams is basically 0:1. The IOSU exploit will help the Wii U community for sure.

    This, too, might as well have already happened. Doesn't matter that it's a different board. It's all GBATemp.

    Fuck, well......

    I think somebody releasing a game using the SDK would be the final straw.

    Ryanrock was the biggest COCK going, he destroyed online play on FW5.3.2 when it was possible even when the system was updated! It was his fault when he went online and posted pictures up here on GBATemp shouting from the top how great it was and then Nintendo decided to then put the block on online play below the latest firmware! Trust me that guy has alot to answer for within the scene, he let many down back then, OK fair enough it doesn't matter now with spoofing but it did back then members where pissed at him!!! :gun:

    Edit:- oh yeah I forgot the most important bit as well, he was also using a hack as well in Mario Kart 8 to boot and posting pictures up doing it online!

    I shit on NDAs the same way I shit on piracy laws. People all around the world dump 3ds games and don't get sued. Personally if I registered to Ninty's dev portal I'd take off that ridiculous chain chomp and share my wares that I made with the sdk (not here of coarse).

    Oh and if you don't like my opinion I don't care. Rules are meant to be broken... SDK = [​IMG]

    buuut I have no need for the sdk anyways lol

    By the way, can you somehow delete your developer's account?

    That's fine, but as you said, don't associate that behaviour with us, not everyone here does as you do.

    The NDA is there for a reason and that's to protect the company from permitting the person to share anything without their consent so that should have gone without saying but it's always good to remind some of them.
