    LOL:

    As always, use online play at your own risk. Since online play is linked to a genuine Game Card,
    we do not recommend that multiple users go online with the same game dump simultaneously as it will most likely result in a future online ban.
    We cannot help you if your 3ds console gets banned from online play.


    Sorry guys, only one user at a time may go online. Where can I reserve a time window?

    Very interesting. I've been thinking to maybe purchase a Gateway with a 4.5 3DS, but I currently already have a Pokemon 3DS XL (red one) and a normal black 3DS, which I had since the 3DS came out. Mainly interested in dumping game cards and eventual homebrew.

    You can go online if you dump your own game card ;)

    But what would happen if you were to dump your own game, and share it with someone else? Doubt that gateway would make a connection between the game and 3DS.

    If you dumped it, went online and simultaneously someone went online with the actual card, you'd get your ass just as banned as someone who shared the rom, so don't do that :P

    yeah but then if it becomes a "thing" and people dump loads of roms and resell the carts......it could end up being too much of a headache for nintendo to enforce the bans

    Thought that would be the case. Can't wait to see the threads about 'Gateway banned me, I just wanted to play pokemon online, and now I can't do anything.'

    I just wonder if scene releases really would trigger a ban or even work for that matter. Nintendo has yet to ban anyone so Its hard to know for certain and the simple fact that people could dump their cards and sell them Nintendo may be hesitant about that.

    Did they specify this as a private beta? If you've tried it, any thoughts?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Nintendo never bans do they ? I mean they never did with the DS nor the Wii so I don't see why they would start now

    never say never, but oh well im sure the majority of gateway users have no need for online without roms anyway

    The only thing I care about is the brick code.
    Ver 2.1 is enough for me.
    Does the release of 2.2 mean the brick code in 2.1 will be triggered soon? Just like some software, beta2 comes out then beta1 expires.

    they haven't but anything is possible. if each copy has a unique code its possible Nintendo has a system that will kick people offline if more than one copy of that code is detected.

    any idea what they mean by activation of online support?


    I wonder if theres any truth to this or if their dumper adds something so the gateway will let it play online.

    It's possible, they can detect if mutiple roms of that 3DS card are used and block that users online. Mostly likely by having track of that 3ds's serial number.

    I know Smash bro's 3DS will use NNID to ban users, dunno if Pokemon uses NNID.
