    But if you have homebrew, why not jsut use HANS or get the actual .cia?

    I know some people don't like pirating, but I don't understand why you can't just use HANS?

    Now, I'm not trying to discredit your work, but, I just think that this seems kinda, meh.

    Thanks for the release though, I do appreciate your hard work, sir!

    HANS sometimes gets some compatibility issues, like uhm OOT3D for instance. And it's actually faster to boot a demo from the home menu rather than going through HBL each time. Thank you btw!

    Wish this was around a while back. Nice idea but not much of a point not with freeshop and cianlge and what now.
    But thanx for the hard work.

    Yeah but not everyone likes piracy and sometimes demos are out before the actual game so I thought this could be useful at times :D

    Well, it's been around for ages now on Cthulhu. I've also added the function into ctrulib some weeks ago.

    Good to see this, I use HANS for most of demos with a limit but some of them doen"t work in HANS so is good to see this.

    I was wondering when a demo counter reset program would be released. More interesting is how it works:
    Code:
    AM_DeleteAllDemoLaunchInfos();
    
    Seems the AM service has a function just for this purpose. I assume it's for debugging purposes, but they left it in on retail systems.

    The IPC wrapper function was added to ctrulib in November.

    Well the demo count need to be deleted after a System Format so it won"t be weird if Nintendo debug it.

    Using CIA requires a CFW, not just homebrew though, isn't it?
    And if you have CFW, well then....

    HANS is fine, but this could save users an unwanted trip to the Homebrew Launcher.

    Also, as for not just getting the CIA, there is one example where the demo is not redundant: Bravely Default. The Bravely Default demo has a sort of mini scenario that lets you unlock some stuff for the main game. It has a demo count, unlike the sequel's demo. There may be a few other demos with counts that have main game unlocks.

    Also, this is just a cool thing.
