    Well, the title is self explanatory. I have a Japanese New 3DS and i installed a buch of .cias, monster hunter and smash bros goes fine but when i installed pokemon and codename steam, it is in japanese! Even though the .cia is from US region. Someone know how to go under it and play in english?

    The same might go for Codename STEAM.

    Just opened Codename STEAM and looked around a bit, and could not find it in the options right off the bat

    FYI this will also happen with Bravely Default, but you can change the language in the options

    well if it's in .cia try this: let the cursorseleced the codename steam, them press select and open an US game , don' wait it load, press A and strat the game
    it might load in englsh
    I don't know why this happens but I do that on my US 3DS when I want to open pokemon suffer/scramble in japanese xD (of course, I use an japanese game :v)

    It's simple, most games are hardcoded for a certain language or have built-in language selector.
    Others just query the system for language setting.
    Since you own a JPN system OP, these 2 games which happen to query sysem for language setting will be in Japanese.

    It's clear GW knows how to bypass that. What I suggested in another thread is for GW to look for a file at the root of the Red card in order to try to force a language the user has previously selected. Like an empty file called "JPN", "ENG", "SPA" or "ITA" etc..

    Someone should definitely make a GW suggestion thread since they're apparently watching this forum.. ^^;

    the problem is that you cant change the language on Japanese systems, so if the game includes the Japanese language (even though US systems don't let you choose it some developers leave the language files in when making the EU/US versions), basically the games language is determined by the consoles currently selected language, so if the developers left the language files in place, the game will load up those files, if there is no Japanese language files it will pretty much always default to English

    NTR got around this by spoofing the language settings with the language plugin, PS you wont be able to play non-legit cia files in NTR cfw (well at least NTR 2.0) and NTR 1.0 doesn't support running 7.x encrypted games, so that routes not going to work either (plus NTR 1.0 is only for the o3DS)

    Assuming you're using GW, swap the EmuNAND region (since you can't use eShop anyway, what does it matter you lose theoretical access) and set to English.

    Would it be possible to have a homebrew which just changes the internal language setting of your EmuNAND, just as if you picked a different language from the system menu (but letting you choose languages that the system menu doesn't let you choose)?

    Damn NTR here and there, every time I see it I can only read Netorare.
    Argh... What the hell does NTR stand for? I will suppose it is Nitro, even when we are speaking about a CFW for Citra... Well, retraining eyes to read Nitro.
