    Hey all, I've been dying to play Earthbound but am unsure of the best way to play. I have it on my Wii U, but would really love to play it on the go.

    How well does it run on blargSNES? Also, does the CIA work for blargSNES? I've had trouble getting it to work on my Gateway in the past.

    Thanks!

    Install the .cia of the English translation of the GBA port.

    Earthbound hasn't properly been translated on the GBA port. It's really buggy apparently, so only Mother was translated.

    Do you use the CIA or homebrew version?

    Do you have any idea why the CIA version booted when I first installed it, but now it just hangs on the black screen when I boot it up?

    I had that problem to, the only solution I've found is to launch it using FBI.

    @VinsCool do you have a better solution? I've been searching for one for a while.

    Have you tried deleting the blargsnes.ini file on the root of your card? Maybe that will help, but not sure. Worth a try.

    That lets me launch it from the home menu once but then it black screens if I try again.

    Very odd, I've never had this happen but I suppose it is definitely a problem with reading the ini file in some cases...

    Even if there was a working English translation, would you really want to play it? The audio quality is terrible compared to the SNES version.

    it's stable!~

    I've had this happen multiple times. to fix it i just delete the ini file. I recommend installing a file explorer with delete capabilities on your 3ds in case it happens again~

    you can always obtain the .cia of the official 3ds release.. you may just need to do a repair from the store after installation.
