    In the wake of freeShop being DMCA'd for using the vanilla 3DS game boot splash, we don't know who will be next, and developers should seriously consider changing theirs. Nintendo probably won't come after anyone else, but it's probably a good idea to do it as a contingency.

    FBI did a few hours after freeShop's DMCA.

    Yeah, Steve took care of that yesterday. Nintendo is obviously ass mad, though.

    Better yet, we should start making our own boot logos.

    Wait, we could bake the homebrew logo into the boot splash (Like a bubble fading into view, then popping to reveal he word "Homebrew")

    I could only get the Ninty ones and the homebrew one to work, no other strings worked for me.

    Wonder why that is.

    Not the boot logo (which doesn't actually exist, and can be added), the "Nintendo 3DS" logo that appears when a game starts.
    Also, wouldn't this fall under SEGA vs. Accolade?

    The boring "Homebrew" one is okay for now. I'd just like to see a cool one eventually.
