    Hi I own a copy of Ridge Racer 3D and trying to run it on my N3DS both from the EU but the game crashes when starting any races. Tried with a .CIA version and the same thing happens.

    Can't figure it out at all so can anyone help?

    Try turning off the overclocking options in the Luma config menu. Some games don't like being forced to run at the faster n3DS clock speed.

    Not surprising considering those older games weren't designed to run at the n3DS clock speed, which is why Nintendo didn't make it work that way in their official firmware. In fact, I am surprised that it took this long to find another game that didn't like the overclocking, there are only a couple of others that are known to be like that so far.

    Makes sense for RR3D as well because, after one of the optimization updates for the 3DS early on in its life, they had to release ANOTHER system update just to fix Ridge Racer 3D since it had broken it. There were no game updates back then. :P
