    It errored because the ARM9 binary size is above 2.5MB.
    Also, writing to datapub:/profile.dat wouldn't work, because homebrew cannot yet read or write to NAND (aside from GodMode9i, which can only read the NAND on DSi).

    The main post didn't have that information back then. Please check the date of the main post edit and @zoogie's post.

    Ahh ok then!
    Because the 3DS version is a 2.5D platformer.. I like the retro pixel version better!

    It doesn't suck at all. The 3ds eshop version is fantastic. The sound is beautiful, the 3d effect is superb, and it uses the whole top screen.

    I think theBLUEBIRD is confusing the 3ds eshop version with the cartridge version, which has a debatable 2.5D athstetic style. The 3ds eshop version is in the traditional cave story pixel style.

    Reread my previous post. The 3ds has 3 versions of cave story: dsiWare, 3dsWare, and 3ds cartridge (this is the 2.5D one).

    I guess you don't know that the original pixel version was also on the 3ds.

    You clearly said the 3ds version that released on the eShop sucked but the eshop version was the original version. The version that you don't like is Cave Story 3D and that was only released on cart.

    Well I got it from the shop... So what? The point was that I stated my preference for the original version..

    lmao I'm tempted to throw this on my 3DS just to replay the game, even though I have almost every other version
    You had just confused everyone is all, no big deal

    Exactly as @Ricken said you just confused us with the wording of what you originally said. No big deal at all. And now I'm off to play the best version of Cave Story which obviously is the Megadrive version. How they made it so good on such an old system is mind blowing :)

    I was just confused because afaik the cart version of Cave Story 3D was never available on eshop.

    Yeah I was gonna say, I have fond childhood memories of wanting to get it off the eShop but seeing it was cartridge only; but it could've been listed for a little while, who knows, Cubic Ninja was listed in Japan for a while ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    This does not work with mods, as far as I can tell.
