Edit: Can a mod change my topic title if possible? By including the words "online" and "region". That way it will be easier for people who also have the same question to find this topic.

I couldn't find a clear answer on this other than one sorta vague topic.

If I wanna play my NA version of MH/Smash4 with a New 3DS online, does it matter which region the console is? I will be using Gateway and waiting for support. I ask because I seem to remember having issues trying to play MH4 JP online with my current console about half a year ago.

Is there anything else I need to take into consideration? Other than the system being in Japanese. Will it be able to play ok with my NA console via local?

JP consoles are being sold at about half the price NA/EU consoles are being sold where I live and easier to get, which is why I'm considering it.

Since GW is region free, I can't see online being an issue. I'm assuming the issue you had previously was either a missing header on the ROM, or it was not named .3DZ with a compatible online header.

As for local multiplayer, some games are region locked and others aren't, and whether the consoles are region unlocked or not doesn't matter there

I seem to recall the problem being having to accept an agreement, though I probably didn't have it as a .3dz back then either. Does the agreement thing ring any bells? What problem did that refer to?

Anyway thanks for the bit of info. So no reason *not* to get a JP N3DS other than the off chance support might fall through and I can't play even my US carts on it. Thanks!

    Yeah it seems to have been a pretty rough few weeks/months for spam. Sadly I don't have access to or insight into why/how it's getting past the spam prevention measures we have in place :(
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Disgruntled banned members probably writing script batches
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Eh I don't think it's that, the content of the spam isn't all that different than what we've been seeing for the past like... decade. I'd imagine if it was a disgruntled banned member then the content would be different, not crypto recovery and illuminati shaman scams lmfao
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Never know
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    Catboy brought up the idea of a new staff tier specifically for anti-spam to combat the issue, as several of us have noticed it getting worse with no apparent changes to prevent it. Any chance of this happening, or at least introducing a limit to the number of threads new users can post? @Sicklyboy

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That can go bad say they make the new staff group and then start blaming that specific member for not keeping up with spam removal
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    @AdenTheThird, wish it wasn't the case but I unfortunately have no insight into that nor the ability to implement/change anything like that

    If anything normal mods should just be brought back
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    A limit on how many threads new users can start should be put in place. Simple, non-intrusive, gives mods plenty of time to respond to spam before they can do it again.

    It's just becoming more and more of an issue and I don't see it stopping until preventative measures are taken.
