    I have a DS Lite with an Edge card and I use the DSLibris e-reader application on it.
    I want to buy the 3ds, only, if I can do ALL that I do on the DS Lite on it.*
    So if you have a 3DS does it run DSLibris?
    Any problems, pros or cons?
    Thanks [​IMG]




    *and when they give us a burgundy coloured console option.

    well, first check if your Edge card runs on a 3DS.

    Does it run?

    If yes: GZ, you can run your homebrew, have fun using DSLibris
    If not supported: nope sorry mate.

    There isnt really a pro or a con, as ds mode is quitely the same as the lite and the dsi

    'tis a fair point sir! But if I have to upgrade to a newer flashcard (so long as I can purchase it from within the EU) then I'll do it. But for the moment DSLibris is irreplaceable.

    However as I don't own a 3DS I need to ask others if anyone has run DSLibris on it (using whatever flashcard they own). [​IMG]

    I have a 3DS and an Acekard2i and can confirm that DSLibris runs perfectly. It's blurrier because of the upscaling, but still easily readable. If the blurring bothers you, you can hold Start while opening the flashcard to get it to run in 1:1 mode, but that means the text is going to be 1.25x smaller.

    I don't have an Edge but I've never seen it listed as a 3DS-compatible card so my guess is it doesn't work. There's another topic on this forum with a list of confirmed working cards, go check there.

    The Edge will not work on the 3DS (and cannot be updated to work on the 3DS).

    Thanks very much for that. [​IMG]
    I'm a bit sad about the blurring. I wonder if there is a cure that doesn't reduce text size.....hmmm. I don't think DSLibris is supported any more so until something better comes out I'm stuck. But at least I have a little more hope now.
    Regarding the edge I don't think many people have an edge so I'm not surprised it isn't on the list. I'll upgrade to a better card if not.
    Edit: just seen the post above looks like I'll deffo be updating the edge card then. [​IMG]


    PS. I did try the ikureader on the ds lite but hated it.

    Well, the "cure" is to wait until people figure out native 3DS homebrew, and then wait until someone ports DSLibris. It's open source, so I'm sure a port will happen fairly quickly after it becomes possible. Otherwise, unless there's an officially-licensed 3DS ebook reader (unlikely but possible), there's no way around it.

    It's really not bad at all, though. I tried to take a picture for you but my cell phone camera can't get a clean shot.

    Do you think that will happen though as it is no longer supported? I mean I realise it is open source but I have no idea how popular it is. I always just assumed it was ageing weirdos like me that used it and normal people played games. [​IMG]
    Thanks everyone for the info anyway. I just wish Nintendo would bring it out in a nice girlie colour (burgundy!!!!!!!) before I go and buy one.

    Nah, there are plenty of people who would love to see the 3DS do more than just play games. I'm sure someone will pick it up even if the original devs have abandoned it. The port will probably be pretty easy anyway.
