    Hi,

    Interested in trying the Kirby Fighters mode as it does seem like a bit of Smash Bros. Just tried to create a group for local multiplayer in Kirby Triple Deluxe. However, as soon as I try to create a group a message saying "A communication error occurred. Returning to the title screen". Anyone else with this problem or can give it a try to see if you run into the same problem?

    The game support local multiplayer and download play. I have wireless enabled and I have a Gateway with Omega 2.2. EMUNand is updated with latest available version.

    is it trimmed? pretty sure trimming breaks local multiplayer, also the game and console has to be the same region to use local multi player

    Thanks for your reply! The game is not trimmed. However, it is the US version and I have a EU 3DS. Did not know that the console and game had to be the same region in order to use local multiplayer, so I guess this is the reason why.

    On a side note: There goes my plans for Monster Hunter 4 local multiplayer. :)

    is the rom the same region as the 3ds you are using?
    i have had problems with games not working with multiplayer when you use them on another region


    -edit. whoops too slow :)

    Trimming does not break multiplayer (local or online) or download play as I've successfully started a download play session of Mario Party Island Tour using a trimmed rom. What I found to be more surprising is that the download play worked with both a Gateway-mode 3DS and a 7.1 3DS. I'm glad that there weren't any problems whatsoever, as DS Flashcart Download Play had a lot of restrictions (ROMs had to be untrimmed/receiving units needed Flashme) until near the end of the lifecycle. I guess the devs used that knowledge from the DS era in developing the trimming tools and we got lucky that Gateway's software doesn't do anything to break it in the first place. I can't say whether or not Download Play works with MT-Card, as I don't have one of those.

    But's enough of my slightly off-topic ramblings. :P

    You wanted to see where I live? You stalker...
    Or how about one NA 3DS (with Gateway) to a JP 3DS? (actual copy) ;)

    try it out, nothing to lose. i expect it to work, since most big multiplayer games (animal crossing, pokemon etc) are region free multiplayer. - but this is not the case with every game, but i'd bet money it would work.

    ooh, i just realized the thread is about kirby, but i was talking about super smash bros since that is what the post above me was talking about, so kirby fighters doesn't work cross region? that's a shame then.
    or you mean ssb?

    maybe download play itself it region locked... i think that is true.
    but wireless playing there is not a hard and fast rule
