    I have been wondering this for a long time now. How can I start programming open source software for the 3DS? I know C++ is a big one. I also do have a second computer, to which i can dedicate it to 3DS homebrew (1 TB). So what i want to know, is what languages would I have to learn, and what tools would I need? Also, what OS should i use?

    I'm not sure about languages, but you definitely need devkitpro. It works on anything, so if you have Windows already set up then just use that. If you want, you can also use Linux or macOS, but I've found the Windows version to work fine (aside from malwarebytes detecting pacman.exe as a virus, which was a pain to replace...).
