For starters, the hardware I have:
- 3DS XL (9.2.0-20U)
- n3DS XL (9.0.0-20U)

My old 3DS has a few virtual purchases (NES Games) so I need to do a system transfer, but that requires updating both to the newest firmware.

I have no issue updating the n3DS as I don't plan on using a flash card with it.
I'm giving the old one to my youngest sibling so I want to keep it flash card compatible.
But I'm not sure exactly what I want to do.

Option 1:
- Update the n3DS but not the original
- Order a Gateway, and wait.
- Setup Gateway, and update emuNand to 9.5
- Do system Transfer.
- Unlink nand's

Option 2:
- Update both systems
- Do system transfer now
2a- Order Sky3DS
2b- Wait to see if Gateway later supports 9.5

I have until 6/30/2015 to use up my Club Nintendo Coins, so I'm not in a rush to complete the system transfer. Also my sister wouldn't have an issue operating the Gateway, so as long as Option 1 would work I'm thinking about going that route.

Any info/ideas people can provide would be much appreciated.

And you should know that you can setup the emunand even without a Gateway. You just have to use the gateway launcher.dat to crate it then rxtools to update it.

Have to love the unknown ;) but that is why I've been leaning towards option 1.

Looks like I need to go re-read some things. I thought the Gateway was required to do emunand at all.
But if I can setup and use it now to do a system transfer that would make it the best of all the choices :)

Sorry for the wait, I needed to borrow my brothers SD card reader. (I only have microSD readers)

What I've Done:
- backed up sdcard
- downloaded gateway ultra 3.1.1
- placed launcher.dat on root of sd
- ds browser > http://go.gateway-3ds.com
- backed up system nand
- backed up sdcard
- ds browser > http://go.gateway-3ds.com
- format emunand
- Tried running Gateway mode, but was told I can't without the Gatway card. (I expected that)
- Tried running Clasic mode, got a warning about some features not working due to not having the card, 3DS just froze up with a black screen (due to not having the card?)
- downloaded rxtools
- used cdn_firm.exe
- copied firmware.bin and rxTools.dat to sd card
- restored DCIM and Nintendo 3DS folders to sd card (from backup) [I noticed the card now had gateway in it label]
- scanned the rxTools QR code (I should bookmark the url so I don't require the qr code every time)
- got warning about no slot0x25KeyX.bin, but my firmware is 9.2 so its not needed (may put it on the sd just to avoid the notice)
- in the menu the bottom left has: EmuNAND in green and NewKeyX in red
- chose Launch rxMode
- checked system settings, RX-E 9.2.0-20U, I am in emuNAND

When I left system settings an the system took a while (black screen, then a small flicker, then the menu reappeared), I re-entered system settings only to confirm my suspicions I was back on sysNAND.

I have a question for you.
How do I use rxtools to update?

I figure it is done the same way as with the Gateway but there seems to be no guide for rxTools, so I like confirmation first :)

- enter System Settings
- verify your on emuNAND (Gateway: GW 3DS x.x.x , rxTools: RX-E x.x.x)
- choose Other Settings
- choose System Update

Yes like that, and don't exit the system settings before updating. :)

    Or free government supplied high speed internet be nice also. Like Obama care. Xdqwerty that's cool, its time consuming but rewarding once done or playable, to see what you've made from scratch. Animations take forever, but worth it.

    and the visual aspect of the game is quite crude (the sprite that looks best is that of the protagonist just because he is a stickman with sunglasses)

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    There is a bullets behaviour you assign to your character, that makes the code easier, under "behaviours"
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    i meant that when the character is pointing to the right, the bullets spawn where they should, but when he is on the right, they move to the right but the spawn point is incorrect
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Itch.io has lots of free assets also. Under the bullets behavior tab, there is a "rotate bullets" option, can try that. Or in the code can try
    - fire bullet Player.X(PlayerDirection)

    That's cool tho, I'm proud of you going back to it, not giving up. It is difficult at first to learn, but fun once you get the hang of it. I think I've watched every tutorial video there is, but I still struggle sometimes to get stuff to work right. But gotta keep trying dif things, and eventually you will get it right.
