    Hey everyone!

    I've realized that I pretty much never play SNES games on my N3DS, due to how poor the performance is on the built-in emulator of the DSTWO card. I've heard great things about the blargSnes emulator, however, and that it can use the GPU to render, which massively speeds up games. I have no idea how I'd go about installing it to my DSTWO card, however.

    Can someone guide me through the process, step-by-step? For reference, I have a New Nintendo 3DS, if that makes any difference.

    Thanks a bunch!

    first DSTWO and blargsnes have nothing to do with each other.

    second what is your 3ds firmware? if it's exploitable you can use your DSTWO to hack the 3ds and eventually install blargsnes into the 3ds.

    Hey, thanks for the reply!

    Huh, so blargSnes can't be installed and run off of a DSTWO card, then? :/
    As for my firmware, I just have the latest update from Nintendo eShop.

    Nope it's a 3ds native application. Sounds like youre out of luck since you're on the latest 3ds update.

    You can try lolSNES (if you weren't using that already) it's the emu blargSNES is based off, and it will run in DS mode.

    Ahh, right, I understand now - thanks!

    As for lolSNES, might that give me better performance than the native DSTWO emulator?

    No. The DSTwo emulator is as good as it gets for SNES on the regular DS or in DS mode on the 3DS.
