Hello, I'm new to the 3DS scene in terms of pirate ROMs and stuff, and I wanted to know what can get people banned when it comes to them. I read that a leaked Sun/Moon ROM got many people banned, but that was because they played online before release (or at least that was to my understanding). Aside from that, things like an freeshop illegal ROM, a converted .3ds to CIA that isnt mine, which of those, if not all, can get me banned and why?

Thank you for your time.

The only bans from cfw is because people played the game online early (same with smm3ds but nobody gives a shit about that game).
If you use .cias you will never have to worry about ban. (Unless you play online on a leaked game before release).
If you use .3ds files (which you don't if you use cfw) you need to inject a private header into the rom.

also cheating online will "likely" result in a ban
oh and stealing in app purchases . . . (pirate dlc is fine though)

Do I even need to mention being a dick online?
Lmao, yeah, that happens a lot.

So basically, Nintendo runs no background check on the games that connect?
Right now I'm downloading everything through FreEshop (Games I don't own, of course), but its quite slow, is there a better alternative right now?
Also, how do I turn .3ds files into CIAs? I downloaded a KH3D .3ds but have no idea how to get my seedb.bin file on OSX.

A .3ds file is the file on a game cartridge. It can only be run with flash carts.

A .cia file is an installable file and is what your system installs when you download a game from eshop.

A 3ds file contains a unique header while a cia file does not. You cannot get banned from playing a cia file online (considering the game was released in your region) while you can get a ban using a flash cart with a 3ds file someone else used.

    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests

    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    @The Real Jdbye quite idiotic and frankly, bu
    llshit points as usual you make. Not only because you have no idea what you're talking about, but also because there is proof (both i've seen and maintained) in regards to C and hand-written assembler code, and the speed gain is simply over half the framerate.

    gbaemu4ds's C ARM and THUMB CPU emulator and GBARunner2's ARM and THUMB handcoded assembly. Just run Yoshi's Island GBA and compare it by yourself.

    or SnemulDS's C CPU Core vs SnemulDS SnezziDS ARM core. The first running at about 45% (half the speed) vs ~105% (full speed)

    yeah, keep believing -Ofast will make everything faster.
