So. I have an M3i zero. It stopped working suddenly, saying a file was corrupt, and to reformat the disk. so, I popped the flash card reader into the computer, copied my files to another folder(downloaded a new copy of Sakura too, and I think I might need new software for the actual m3i?), and reformatted. It finished, and I went to copy my files to the M3izero drive. It wasn't there. Instead there was just a drive labeled "J". I tried opening it, but it says there is no disk. I tried reformatting, but of course, it's not reading the disk, so can't do that. I tried restarting, and of course that didn't work. This m3i, card reader and card are just about a year old. What can be wrong? How can I fix this? or do I have to buy a new flash card reader and disk? (How do I do that without having to buy the whole package, anyway?)

By M3iZero drive, do u mean ur memory stick micro? And yes if u cant access ur memory stick micro while it is in ur computer, u need to try to use the SD Formatter (found on filetrip), and if u cant format that means u got a bad micro sd card, and u need to get another one

Yeah, I mean the Little chip (sorry, I always forget what it's called) that goes into the cartridge, and into the flash card reader. It's showing up as a drive called J, when previously it was called "M3iZero". When i click it, it says "Please insert a disk into removable drive J". Where on filetrip can I find this, and how does it work? I already formatted it, and I think that might have caused the problem.

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
