    Hey guys,

    Now as the title states, I am having trouble moving one of my NONMAYORAL characters to another free town that has no one in it. I am following the right instructions but it gets stuck at "Connecting. Cancel by pressing B." and the 3DS handheld systems don't find each other. :(

    Info:
    • both 3DS's have rxTools running emuNAND.
    • both ACNL games are on emuNAND (not cartridges)
    • the 3DS with my character that needs to be moved has a mayor and a nonmayor character. It is a normal 3DS EU.
    • the 3DS that I want to move my character into is a normal 3DSXL US.
    If anyone has experienced this problem or has a solution please comment.

    Thanks!! <3

    I would guess the local multiplayer is region locked?

    If so, you should install an European version of NL on the American console too and transfer to that one;
    then maybe afterwards you can backup the save, and restore it on the American version of the game, and uninstall the European one...

    By the way, while it's not the source of your problem, consider switching to a more modern CFW :)

    Is the wireless turned on in both?

    Also, the receiving 3DS should wait on the ACNL title screen.

    That would seem quite right.

    Can you please tell me a more modern CFW and how to install it? Also how do I install another region game on a US 3DS?

    Please, I'm quite a newbie

    Thanks

    My ACNL on the receiving 3DS is waiting
    The guide is too confusing. I really need help lol.

    My 3ds is on 7.1.0 and I need to upgrade it to 9.2 in order for it to work. I have no rxtools or modding...
