    So, I ordered the proper male to male jack wire(4 rings, 3.5mm), I got a mic/headphone splitter because my laptop, a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E540, has a merged jack that needs a splitter for this stuff as a result, an audio splitter so that I can listen to the audio while recording it, and yet no matter what I do, I can't seem to successfully record 3DS audio. It doesn't show up in OBS Studio for Audio Input, and it doesn't show up in Audacity as a mic or whatever.

    Am I doing something wrong? Because I got all the wires that should be necessary, and yet nothing is working. I'm not gonna have to buy yet ANOTHER item like a USB sound card, am I? Please help!

    The port on the laptop is an output only

    Even thought the port has an icon that's a headphone with a mic on it like most gaming headsets?

    Man, I should've known I'd have to use a USB sound card. Might as well buy another USB hub to make sure I'll have enough room for other stuff, possibly. Well, thanks, regardless, Shadow#1. You've been helpful.

    And a USB sound card will still be a output device for audio

    ......okay, do you have a suggestion on what I can do to get audio to record from my New 3DS XL while using NTR to stream gameplay and record it in OBS Studio, please?

    Didn't work. Apparently, all my options are 2 channel, but it didn't seem to work. Is there anything specific I have to look for in OBS or something? You sure I can't just use a USB Sound Card and use whatever mic jack it has instead?

    Dude, I did everything in that video to a T. I made sure to watch it in full. I messed with the internal mic, lowered microphone boost, switched it to CD quality 2 channel tab, and you're just gonna claim that I didn't watch? Come on, man. You should know better than this.

    Okay, so, you gave me a solution you knew was more likely not gonna work? Are you telling me to get a USB sound card now despite you telling me no before? You're kinda sending mixed signals here.

    So, you tell me not to get a USB Sound Card, show me a video that isn't a definite answer, tell me to watch the first minute detailing USB sound cards to just get that, when we could've avoided spending the past hour on this issue by you just saying I should get one, in the first place? Why the Heck you trolling?

    Then be clear in what you're trying to say. Are you saying I should get a USB Sound Card or not? Did you send me the link knowing it wasn't 100% gonna work or not?
