    Hey guys, I don't know where to put this since I can't post a question in the "Ask" section but basically some of my games have this sort of text and I don't know what's wrong with it lol. Thanks in advance and delete this if this isn't the right place to ask this, if you can PM me where to post this :)

    Gambia, The
    What Game is this? Was it a CIA you installed or did you download the game from NUS? A bit more info would help.

    Between insane and insecure
    We need more details.
    What game is that?
    What method did you use to install it?
    Were there any errors when the game was installed?
    Does the game match the region/language of your system?

    It's Mario Sports Superstars, but it also happens with Super Smash Bros. Rune Factory and I forgot one more game. It was downloaded using freeshop.

    Mario Sports Superstars but also happens with other games, it was downloaded using freeshop and nope US, I tried downloading the other region but it was still the same. And no, there were no errors during installation :)

    How do you do that? hahaha

    Hold select on boot and disable the clock + cpu option

    I'm so sorry for the doublepost/necro bump but I have noticed that this missing text doesn't only occur in games but also in the UI and streetpass.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You can notice that the symbols are missing this could probably solve the text problems in the games below?

    Nobody seems to know why it would be really great if someone could help.

    Did you install a custom font? If so, it's missing the custom symbols used by the 3DS OS, which are located in the Unicode Private Use Area.

    I'm really not sure, I bough this from another person so I don't know if he installed a custom font, is there any way to know?

    If you know what to look for, you can dump the Home Menu CIA and disassemble it. Otherwise, you can try reinstalling the Home Menu from the CDN. (I think FBI has an option to redownload a title; not entirely positive.)

    The Home Menu title ID is:
    • USA: 00040030 00008F02
    • EUR: 00040030 00009802
    • JPN: 00040030 00008202

    EDIT: See @Ryccardo's post below for the Font title IDs. That's probably what you actually need to reinstall.

    I have no idea on how to dump files and/or how CDN work, so CDN is something like freeshop/ciangel? I'm sorry for asking too many questions, I'm not really used to this.

    @GerbilSoft the system font is not part of Home (although they were invented roughly at the same time as Home text editing)... :)

    0004009B-00014002 (First World)
    0004009B-00014102 (Chinese)
    0004009B-00014202 (Korean)

    I was trying to find the Font title but couldn't find it; the only things I could find were specifically for Home Menu. (I guess I didn't search hard enough :V)

    I don't really get how the program works it keeps telling me that I gave an invalid input as it didn't match the title id/firmware :/

    I don't know about that version of 3DNUS (I use the original by "ground") but you enter a titleid (without the "-") in the middle in the large textbox, plus a title version (without the "v") in the small box

    You can find the numbers at https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Title_list
