    Hello guys, I'm just wondering does Snes Vc games work on 2DS? I Have some CIA files and every time I try to install them using FBI, I just get an error.. After doing some research some people says that it only works for N3DS... But is there a way (without using blargSnes) to make it work on the 2DS? :)

    Nope. But you can use this. It's blargsnes but in a VC way. Can't describe it better but it's what you people with O3DS and 2DS systems have always wanted. I haven't used it tbh, I have a N3DS.

    Yeah, like on old3DS you can't use SNES VC, you'll have to use an emulator

    The Snes retroarch emulators on an Orig 3ds/2ds are horribly slow blargsnes works much better.

    I want to believe that one day retroarch will surpass any other emulator.

    Try emulating VIP Mario 4/5 to see whether it glitches on custom music stages.
    Custom VIP Mario 4/5 SNES VC glitches.
    DSTWO CatSFC doesn't but it can't display in full size.

    The reason I'm asking is because when I enter the Nintendo eshop I can see that some SNES games, such as donkey kong country 3 etc etc, is a available for purchase.. I mean if it's available for purchase there using the Virtual Console, doesn't that mean that it has to work? :O
    Also if I buy the game from the store won't that still work? :O

    I have tried BlargSnes but I have to enter FBI installer and launch something called "CTR-P-BLRG" to start BlargSNES, it won't work otherwise to run it on the menu for some reason... That's why I don't like it :(

    They're not available for purchase if you're on an old 3DS. They'll just appear in the catalogue.
