I'm curious about the experiences people have had with editing their Pokemon Sword and Shield saves on CFW, and what they have or haven't gotten banned for. The primary reason I would want to edit my save is to change my trainer's ID number, but that'll probably be a ban I would imagine because you can't naturally change the ID number.

I haven't been keeping up at all, is nintendo being vigilant with save editing these days? if so, how vigilant?

are bans instant? are there types of bans? how do I know if I've been banned?

I've edited pokemon for my own use but I don't go online or trade pokemon. So I'm just on single player and I've been fine.

Any type of hacking is liable for a ban. As for how quickly they are distributed, it varies immensely from less than a day to more than a year. There are different types of bans. And the easiest way to check if you're banned is by trying to use the eShop.

    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing

    Start a new thread in the 3DS board, the chat box is not the best place to ask for such advice.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
