    Hello everyone! I'm now trying to do region swapping from JP to US on my JP New3DS and now I'm stuck in the duplicated title deleting step.
    I've watched lots of threads concerning region swap, and nearly every thread mentions this tool. As is said by the publisher, it is indeed not friendly to noobs like me. I completely don't know how to use this tool.
    I already downloaded the two csv's corresponding to system versions before and after swapping(9.5.0-23J-9.5.0-23U). Can anyone tell me how to do this(Copied from the original thread):

    "you specify your source fw CSV, your target fw CSV, and then -region1 source region, -region2 target region not really for noobs anyway, but to make it even easier, here is an example - 'python compare TitlesCSV.py 6.2.0-12.csv 9.0.0-20.csv -region1 KOR -region2 EUR' "

    How can I do this kinda "Specify" thing? Should I write this script somewhere in this tool? I've tried double click on the tool, it just showed a quickly disappearing window.(Python ver. 2.7 Win8.1 64bit) So, anyone help write an easier tutorial for this tool please!:sad:
    PS: Sorry for my bad English!

    You need to run the command in a command prompt, replace the csv files with the ones you have and the KOR and EUR with your source and target regions.

    Thanks very much for your replying. Can you tell me how to run this in "command prompt"(Real Noob, Sorry:cry:)? Anyother software i need other than python? And can this be done in Windows OS?

    Edited: Checked online for this, I found out this is a real stupid question. "Command Prompt" belongs to windows OS - -!

    I told you, you just need to use the example command and replace the parts indicated:
    python c:\c.py 6.2.0-12.csv 9.0.0-20.csv -region1 KOR -region2 EUR

    Color coding:
    Source firmware
    Target firmware
    Source region
    Target region
