    Hi everyone! My name's Kiwi and I've been looking around on this forum about 3ds homebrew and I really would like to make something! I found this thread that talked about making homebrew, but it says you have to know either C or C++ and I only know python. I was wondering if there is any way to run python as homebrew? If not, I guess I'll have to learn C then haha...

    (Also, sorry I'm new to joining forums :) )

    Hi KiwiDev,

    Unfortunately you will need to learn C/C++. There might be some alternative options available (I'm not fully aware of the 3DS scene) but they will not a match C/C++ solution. (Languages like python require an interpreter which creates overhead and takes up a lot of valuable resources on a portable system like a 3DS)
