Hi folks,

My kids are still using Gateway 3.7.1 on their O3DS consoles running Gateway and their N3ds console.
I did the work for them long ago and beside putting the latest launcher files onto their SD cards I haven't done much.

I there there's been a few releases (4.1B being the latest). Do I have to update their O3DS and N3DS consoles with it? What will it bring my kids (quicker, safer, new features or supported games...)?

Any risk in upgrading (especially with their N3DS console)?

Could someone explain the update process in simple words for an old fart like me?

Thanks,

You don't need to update, 3.7.1 allows you to update to the latest emuNAND. 4.0/4.1 have updates for Gateway's a9lh installation method (which nobody should ever use) and they also allow updating by sysupdater without bricking (but that isn't anything you need to worry about).

I beg to differ, on N3DS Launcher.dat 4.0 or 4.1B fixes the screen init bug, it's totally worth it even if you have no plans to use the other features.

Thanks for both replies. The screen bug is indeed annoying so I may try to go on with the update. Any special care ? How do I go about it?
Not sure I understood about the latest emuNAND. 4.0/4.1... I don't have my kids consoles with me at the moment but I'm pretty sure my kids are running a newer version of emunand on their O3DS (I'm not sure about the N3DS though)

Maybe and no.

"Maybe" because, well, maybe it does support an updated sysNAND, there is no reason why it wouldn't (though they'll be annoying with that and nag you to use emuNAND instead).
"No" because you must not update your sysNAND in GW mode. Do it while in Luma or whatever, but just not with GW mode or you'll remove a9lh.

Nothing special, just overwrite Launcher.dat at the root of sdcard and use as usual.

More space, 2GB? That can be filled twice with one game only. To get more space, your best option is to buy a bigger SD card.

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

  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    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:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol 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
