    Hi,

    Everytime I load a particular game I have to type in parental control PIN.

    I have tried turning off what I think are are the relevant parts of Parental Controls in system menu but it still pops up.

    It is a usa cia on a euro console - that is the only thing I can think of? That is different from my other games. It's Mario Tennis btw. I installed it using FBI - running latest Luma CFW etc.

    I can't as the console is my daughters who is a minor and it (only) has her nintendo id on it.

    Is that the only way? Why is it happening with only this game?

    Thanks.

    Try editing the parental control settings to not restrict particular ratings. Chances are this game has no rating.

    Yes it is because of that.
    Either disable PC or install cia from your region.

    as to why;

    Thanks for the replies - I thought it was due to the out of region game & parental controls but wasn't sure.

    Can i disable PC for a minor? I can't appear to be able to.

    Just go into Parental Control settings and turn it off. Not sure what you mean by "for a minor". Do you want to detect the age of the person using it, and enable if adult and disable if a child? :-)

    It's my daughters console (a minor) and she has her Nintendo ID on there. So if you go into System settings and choose Clear PC - it won't let you. Furthermore if I disable all the settings in PC the game still asks for the PIN on launching due to the game being out of region.

    I think the only 'solution' is to get a EUR cia. I am surprised though.

    Oh I see, so the console knows her age and disables things by default. I didn't realise it did that! Very interesting. If you were content with clearing the settings - can you just tell her the code?

    Wow - thanks for the link - really interesting page! I will check it out.

    Nintendo knows her age through the Nintendo ID.

    She watched me enter the PIN the first time it happened and then remembered it every since. I only have a few PINs on the go at any one time. She is far too smart and should not be allowed to see my PINs! Can't remember to tidy her room but instantly remembers a PIN, mmm, kids!!!
