Hi,

I have a 3ds which is hard modded. There's a lot of files in the SD card and was wondering if I can get r'id of any of them without causing any issues with my DS. Does anyone know which files is needed and which is not?

Can you post a screenshot of your SD card's root directory? What files you need varies a bit with what exploit you have installed

For someone who has a lot of stuff, you have a surprisingly low count of root folders.

***

CIAngel
- remove any *.cia games out of it. CIAngel no longer works. You can also delete freeShop, TIKdevil, and tikSweep.

hblauncherloader - use Rosalina HBL injection. If you like to keep the HBL HOME Menu icon, inject the boot.3dsx to that.
dump - Log dumps?

gm9out - I'm guessing you relocated the out folder that was in the gm9 folder.

Yeah, feel free! Although, if you followed the guide recently then the gm9 cleanup script should have got rid of everything you don't need

Its probably games There typically around 1GB.

What are you using twilight for?? NDS games/files? If it was me I'd backup my NDS games. Delete Twilight through FBI. Reinstall twilight then put the NDS games back.

I keep an OLD R4 card for my NDS Games for use with twilight. That was its easy to keep everything separate and you only need to worry about 3DS saves (use Checkpoint). BTW 16GB isn't a lot. It might be worth buying a new SD card (64GB or over I'd go for a 128GB). Just make sure you format it Fat 32. Use GUI Format is its a card over 32GB.

Set the Allocation unit or cluster size
  • If the SD card is 64GB or below, choose 32768
  • If the SD card is above 64GB, choose 65536
You don't have to the games will play fine on the main SD Card. But Twighlight is compatible with "OLD" R4's as well as new... plus you can use YS Menu if you have a "Time bomb".

    Start a new thread in the 3DS board, the chat box is not the best place to ask for such advice.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
