    11.0 on Luma, downloaded the game straight out of freeshop.

    when i run the game, i see the bottom screen for the VC for a while and kicks me out back to the home menu. am i missing a step here?

    Why would you want a Japan n3DS in Canada?
    I don't believe SNES VC games are completely region free, IIRC there's JP versions and US/EU versions.

    i had this n3ds for ages, long before n3DS was in NA.

    probably a freeshop derp where it shows it's for all regions. i'll see if a regular cia would work.

    I think you just have to view a SNES game's page once in the eShop and it'll fix all SNES games. Something about a seed? I don't remember.

    Could be but if it gets past the 3ds logo then it's usually Cryptofixed

    megaman x jap do the same until i do that

    take it from luma3ds github

    Enable region/language emulation: Enables the region/language emulation feature. This allows some games which need a specific language to be set to work, and DLCs for foreign games to load.
    • To use it:
      • Create a folder named locales inside luma/
      • Create a .txt file with game's title id as the name (look them up on www.3dsdb.com).
      • Inside the file,
        • Put 3 characters for the region ("JPN", "USA", "EUR", "AUS", "CHN", "KOR", "TWN")
        • Put an empty space
        • Put 2 characters for the language ("JP", "EN", "FR", "DE", "IT", "ES", "ZH", "KO", "NL", "PT", "RU", "TW").
    • For example, to play Pokémon™ Y in Japanese language and region:
      • Create 0004000000055E00.txt
      • Put in JPN JP
      • Save

    You should use the method what trigao posted, for every foreign region apps.

    oh my god. and i just said that's the FIRST thing i did. not sure if you read or what.

    found the solution:
    it needed some cryptofixing.

    Actually you never said it.

    OK recent foreign games from freeshop do require SEED decrypting. This is difficult without shared SEED data or seeddb.bin.

    At least it's not on your first post so I can't see if you have described that.
