    I was trying to connect One Piece: unlimited Cruise SP (Eur) to
    NTR-debugger since the codes weren't working.
    Strange thing was this:

    before OP running:Wireless and internet
    While OP running:Wireless and internet(-less)
    After OP closing:Wireless and internet( back)

    So, Is "One Piece" stop me from connect to internet, or is this something else?

    Yeah a lot of games that have no use for internet functions turn it off (OOT is another) I think KitKat patches it now but you can always use this write command "write(0x0105AE4, (0x70, 0x47), pid=0x1a)" and it will stop it from turning the internet off when you can't connect online in-game.

    well, that solved my internet-less issue,
    however, when i load the main game
    NTR Debugger does this:

    if Connected:
    "Connection timed out
    Server disconnected."

    If not connected:
    the whole "connection timed out" or "target refused connection on <3ds ip address:debug port>

    i have tried several times to make sure i didnt do anything different,
    is it possible one piece has anti-cheating routines?!

    FYI, NTR plugins actively disable wifi to prevent cheating online. I don't think this occurs when using the debugger, I'm not certain though.

    ok, i deleted the game plugin, so unless Savetool.plg is disabling it, it still automatically disconnects when the main game loads...
