I'm trying to install a mod pack for New Super Mario Bros. U on OG hardware and not CEMU but when I try to open the game it just crashes with a DSI error. Do I need to downgrade my game and remove all DLC?

depends on which version the mod is for. I think the version.bin contains the latest versions of everything installed, so if you uninstall something, it will nag you about an update regardless.

there's a way to hex edit the version.bin to force a lower version, but I'm not familiar enough with the file to know how to do that.

I'm also using SDCafiine and I think it's probably booting me out because I have the DLC version of New Super Luigi U

dlc is 5000c. I don't know if that would be the reason as I don't use rom hacks. what is the location in sdcaffeine? is it 50000 or 5000e?

that's the main game. it's possible luigi u has a title update which would be 5000e. I assume that's your issue, either the main game or the update is wrong.

not sure. the mod may be for a certain version of the game, either base game or an updated version, just like how it is with most other systems. I can see it crashing if the base game is wrong when you have an update. I think the folders are in the sys/title location on usb or mlc.

    Huh, makes sense; they did sell that through the 3D All-Stars collection.

    Which, last I heard was removed from the eShop...so they might as well offer it again, I guess...

    Will they use the same Shindou-translated ROM, or the original English ROM?

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    googling it, it seems that mario 64 is on the service

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    in japan they use the shindou version apparently but in the states and elsewhere they use the original rom

    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    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
