    I have a JP n3ds console and I'm playing EUR Xenoblade on it. The language of the game is English, but I'm guessing it's by default. If the game has Multi language and it takes the system lang to change, how could I play on a language of my choosing on a JP console where I cannot set any system languages? Has anyone tried forcing this somehow? Searched the 'temp and nothing, except for changing emunand region which needs a donor anyway.

    If you're not playing online there's a public secure info file for eur region changing. I don't know of any other options at this time.

    OH. No, I don't plan to play online ATM. Else I'll just get another MSD for online play with my real emuNAND. Could you pleeeease point me to where to search? Just a hint, as I bet it's not allowed here...

    EDIT: Wait, can you even do this on n3DS? We can't downgrade to 4.5 and I still haven't looked into ways to get a xorpad on this system

    There's actually EUR and US now.

    Forum / Nintendo 3DS ROMs, Homebrews and Downloads / Other Nintendo 3DS Downloads / Free US SecureInfo_A
    Forum / Support Section / Tips and Tutorials / 3DS Tips and Tutorials / Tutorial: Changing emuNAND region to EUR

    All you need is the SecureInfo_A file from one of those threads, then follow any guide for region changing emunand.

    Thank you, I found everything but, I still see no way to xorpad a n3ds, as all CFWs work with o3DS atm, no?



    You know what? I'm gonna try this. Maybe if I open a Spanish-only game like Professor Layton it will have the same effect :P

    EDIT: err.. but Xenoblade doesn't exist as a CIA currently.

    Well shit it doesn't work, it must be the other way around. Cart language overrides home-menu game language. I tried using the CONFIG SDK app but, selecting "other settings" to change language completely hangs up the system.

    the language is a value that the software/game takes from the system.
    maybe if someone creates an app who changes that value temporally and the loads the game automatically you will have english or in your case, spanish in the game but when you quit all returns to japanese. Just like in Wii.
    (I was thinking loud)

    Haha I just posted the same idea on another thread... My theory is that, as long as you change the language back before rebooting it shouldn't mess anything up. I doubt the system changes the home menu language on the fly, but the flag being set would be enough for the game to load with said language

    Woudn't it be easier to patch the game itself, ie: the function in the game that queries the system about language?
    It'd be a one time thing, with no need to run an app prior to launching the game or to use other workarounds.

    I actually asked Gateway about this once. They gave their usual generic reply.

    I also pointed out that some games have languages that are impossible to select by normal means. Old Gateway firmware when run with the wrong 3DS firmware could mess up and play American games in Japanese even if there was no way to normally play the game in Japanese at all.

    they can do that, actually they are doing it (read bellow)
    let's think we have 2 3ds in spanish one eur, one usa, and both have ZeldaOot
    if you play ZeldaOoT USA in the EUR console it will boot in english, and if you put the Oot EUR in the USA console it will boot in english, but if you match the region USA-USA EUR-EUR it will boot in spanish (check it out in CFW). But if you use GW both boot in spanish, so they know how to do the language switch

    the main language switch is game + system language ... I tested here the Eur gunvolt , with eu nand in english, it booted in english, when I put in spanish to test, booted in spanish normally like it would do in the EUR console (Ou s if the US game had multi language) but I tested the portuguese(Us console) menu on the EUR smash brothers, it booted in englsh ( this game have portuguese, but for portugal :B)
    I don't remind about trying in spanish as well, but if worked with EUR gunvolt so ...

    its a ZeldaOoT specific issue
    gunvolt will not be affected by that
