    Well, I suppose you're right. I am pretty picky. It's possible it could have been a power-save function on the demo unit that I played? Or maybe you're right about 3D mode seeming brighter. I'm not sure.

    But yeah, definitely on the unit I tried, it wouldn't maintain it's highest brightness setting while using 3D mode.

    No, what happens is this: You have 3D off. You turn it on. The second you turn it on, the screen shuts off and on again. It goes so quick you barely notice. Probably to set the screen in 3D mode. While in 3D mode, regardless of the level, the screen will be A TINY bit darker than without 3D. It's even less noticeable. Comprende?

    Also, this could be groundbreaking for some: There's an option to delete software from the "Software Library", which is a record of what games (software) you have been playing, when, how many times and so on. However, the game will still be present in the "Daily Records", which is a "Diary" showing when and for how long you played the/a game(s).
    There. You can delete the "Flashcart" game from you library, and Nintendo will never know. Unless they have a secret record which you cannot touch/see. Which is likely. [​IMG]

    Disregard that last comment, I read it backwards. (lv4 2d -> 1v5 3d)

    But still sound like nitpicking.

    It's getting darker because once you turn on the 3D only half of the pixels reach each eye which means there's only half as much light from the screens arriving at an individual eye which causes your brain to think it's darker. There's nothing that can be done about it because that's an inherent "problem" with stereoscopy.

    Why would it matter to the brain weather the two eyes see the light individually or equally? It's the same amount of light in the end anyway.
    Don't kill me for being wrong, I'm talking with logic here. Not knowledge.

    I don't know, but that's the explanation I read quite often. Can't argue it's not getting darker and that's some kind of explanation so I'll stick with it [​IMG]

    My logic would be:
    number of eyes x amount of light
    2x2=4
    1x2=2
    ?

    Impossible, it'd be like this
    stereostopic:
    2(1x2)=4
    non-stereo:
    2x2=4

    This because on stereo, the total light recieved is the same even though it's split past two eyes.
    But, it still seems wrong. Some1 tell me I'm wrong and show us the right equation.

    ... The 3d in the 3DS is made by sending one image to the right eye and another image to the left eye right?
    so that means that each eye receives one image, which also means 1x the light of that image. If both images are sent to both eyes they receive double the light right?

    unless the eyes still receive only one image each, which are the same.

    1) yes, the charger port is the same as the dsi, there is no reason at all, why you cant.
    2) if you mean using a singapore dsi charger on it, then yet it works. no matter the charger version, the output to the 3ds is 5v. so if it gets 230v, it turns that to 5v.

    You have a UK 3DS even though you're in the US? If not you'll probably want to cancel that SSF4 order because you won't be able to play it on a non-European 3DS.

    that video makes no sense
    first of all, he tested different games instead of the same game in all four units
    secondly, the ds phat was not plugged in to start with like the others were
    thirdly, a dsi xl would not die before a dsi, xl has far better battery life...


    who's to say this klutz that can't even be trusted not to drop a clock on his new 3ds even bothered to completely charge the units before testing?

    Thanks but... I'm still confused.

    1) you said charger port, I suppose it's on the 3DS itself. I actually mean by the cradle port. Is the cradle port and the charging hole on the 3DS the same?

    2) you see, USA uses 120 V, 60 Hz while Singapore uses 230 V, 50 Hz. I wonder if the cradle (from the US set) actually accepts 100 V - 240 V, 50/60 Hz or just 120 V. That is what I'm unsure of.

    There is a plug socket on the 3ds the same size as the nds lite one. You can plug it right into the system. The cradle has the same size socket and you can choose to plug it into the cradle and have your 3ds sitting on it.

    THANKS! [​IMG]

    But any idea if the CRADLE accepts multiple voltages like phone chargers? I want to charge it on the cradle, looks cooler [​IMG]

    The cradle accepts the same 5v input that the DSi and 3DS accept. The voltage is transformed at the box that plugs into the wall.
