    My 2DS is European (UK/Ireland), but I cannot play the US version of Sonic Lost World.

    What should I do?

    Do you have the "arm9loaderhax.bin" in the root of your SD card?

    What options are checked in luma settings? (The menu that appears when you boot with select held)

    You are welcome!
    Actually Luma3DS has all "basic" settings turned on by defaults. So region-free, FIRM0/1 protection, reboot patches, etc. are all setup for you.

    Do you think if Luma Locale Switcher would help them with their problem? That's how I got my US copy of ACNL to work properly on my JP n3DS.

    Maybe ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's worth a try if the OP is up for trying it out.
    @OP
    From wiki since I wouldn't be able to do a step by step justice.

    Just install Luma Locale Switcher. If you have Luma 7.0+, install the version for the nightly.

    Launch it. Choose Titles -> Sonic Lost World -> Change Region -> Try USA and see if that works. Change Language -> EN. That should hopefully make it work.

    Hmm. Is there a UK/EUR copy of Lost World you could try? Don't know anything about Sonic games and their releases. Try changing the language in Luma Locale Switcher to EUR.

    Are you sure the cart itself is not broken? And what exactly is the error? (Why did I not ask this first?)

    Thanks for the help, but I'll just find a EU version of Lost World.

    It's a downloaded version.

    Do you have a bad install?
