Hi,

I'm having trouble getting Dragon III Code VFD (DCVFD) .cia to work. Here is what I did:

- downloaded .cia using FunKeyCIA.py
- copied to SD card of 3ds
- installed .cia using FBI 2.1

Exited FBI to main menu of 3DS, saw 'new present' icon, and clicked to see DCVFD icon. Trying to run it made the black screen with red waves and Nintendo logo show up, but it did not continue from there.

Uninstalled game and ticket, re-downloaded using FunKey again (in case first download was faulty), same result.

Uninstalled game, and ticket using FBI and attempted whole thing again using BBM - exact same result.

Tried again using FBI 2.3.3, same result.

Is there anything else I can attempt?

CFW is Luma from last week, and emunand is updated.


EDIT: I should add, no problems with installing and running other .cias, except for Link to the Past which gave me an 'invalid .cia' message or something similar.

It's probably a CIA file corruption rather than any other possibility.

1. Resuming DL & Mutithread DL always cause CIA file corruption.
Make sure you didn't use both of them.

2. Don't trust .CIA downloads.
If the provider only provides that, ask him to provide .7z or .rar with Recovery.
If the provider refuses to do that, you can say he uploaded a corrupted file to waste downloader's time.

Went to eShop to repair installation (selected software from eshop and repair option was visible scrolling to bottom). Chose option to check installation, eShop said no errors found but offered me option to download software again - I did. It downloaded the entire thing again and now it works. Thanks 8bit for the suggestion.

Melon my problem was that I trusted my download since I used FunKey to download raw data straight from the servers. FunKey program then converted raw download into .cia - no reason I should suspect anything here which is why I did not know how to proceed.

    I'm fortunate to have had some managers over the years who I've straight up told to go fuck themselves, and not get in trouble for it. Help that I've been on the receiving end of that as well lmao

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Bosses should yell at workers for mess ups they just need to know the difference in abuse and punishment
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I don't abuse or curse at my employess, I feel like waving the gun around gets the point across just fine.

    That's how all of my last managers have been in this job and my last one. Last time I had a manager where I was being micromanaged to hell and back was over a decade ago when I worked retail
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    My managers nowadays are perfectly fine assigning me a project and just checking in once every week or two

    I had to micromanage the managers
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which was not the normal dynamic for that role lmao
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Don't get to travel for my current job :(

    Had me started working 10 days in a row with different days off after that I was like no

    On the bright side, I also don't even have to leave my house for my current job, so... could be worse

    Some of the shift workers were so bad it held us up from 10pm to 10am
