I remember my original 3DS having a blank insert in the slot 1. I can't find it since at the time I had a DSTWO filling the slot and I just tossed it into a random junk box.

I recently got a New3DS. I can put the DSTWO into the empty slot, but I'm worried that it might be draining the power when not in use. If not then I don't need a plug. Otherwise, what is the name of the plug and is it sold anywhere?

I honestly have never heard of Nintendo ever making dummy cards apart from the DS Lite slot2 one...

Maybe get a 99 cent shovelware from Game$top and use it as-is or remove the electronics?

I've seen them on HobbyLink Japan/AmiAmi (PlayAsia probably has them too). They're made by Cyber Gadget. They rarely seem to be in stock though, particularly the black ones (which I've had on backorder for a while because the bottom of my console is black).

Not sure how good they are but I've found myself knocking the cartridge a couple of times and making the game throw an ejection error at me, so it's something I looked into to prevent that.

For what it's worth, I don't ever remember the original 3DS coming with a cartridge slot filler, so you might be misremembering that. The only one I know of is the DS Lite's Slot-2 cover.

Just buy a cheap used DS cart from your local Gamestop or whatever. It doesn't matter what it is if you literally just want to fill a slot with it, so the cheapest one (there are games for like $5 near me, others might be even cheaper) would probably be about as expensive (or maybe even cheaper) as finding a blank slot-filler online and paying for shipping.

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Slightly slower loading but a bit more convenient
