    Being a long time Gateway user, I often miss out on certain homebrew that are out there. I don't mean Ninjhax since I abandoned 9.2. I mean homebrew in .3ds and .cia, mainly .cia.

    So my question is, what homebrew do you have on your 3DS menu, cia installed?

    The homebrew I have:

    - BigBlueMenu (Modified to look like DevMen)
    - SaveDataFiler
    - Play Coin Setter
    - Blargsnes
    - GameYob
    - CHMM (Custom Home Menu Manager) (This is a homebrew that made me realize that Im missing out on other homebrew. I had no idea this existed and I was using extdata manager)

    Homebrew I had:

    - Extdata manager (Forgot the exact name, but does the same as CHMM)
    - FTPony (Never worked for me)


    What homebrew am I missing out on?

    I think someone ported Doom a while back, I ported gpsp to 3DS but it only works in ninjhax and invalidating the icache basically kills the performance at the moment (it would run full speed otherwise), I think someone ported a Neo Geo emulator, smea has his Minecraft thing which is nifty, I haven't tried 3DNES but it's there, probably a few other things as well.

    3DS hacking & homebrew section got split up a while ago. For all homebrew release topics, check 3DS homebrew development & emulators section :)

    If you've got a Gateway then you're shit outta luck.

    Seems <some> devs don't wanna use .cia files because then they KNOW you're a pirate.

    Apart from blargsnes, sand and yob etc... you're stuck with a 9.2 emuNAND running Ninjhax through a Cubic rom OR Gateway mode, .cia homebrews with latest FW and eshop.

    If you're anything like me then yeah, it sucks. I can't buy legit and have a broader homebrew selection at the same time.

    If Smealum doesn't agree with piracy, he's got a funny way of showing it. All this .3dsx format has done is give give me an excuse not to buy games lol.

    Doom is best. 3DNES is good, too, by st4rk

    How are you running Doom?

    If it's .cia, spare me a build?

    I run it as a 3dsx. Someone else probably has a cia.

    I had troubles building one, thought I'd ask.

    Ta anyhow, sometimes it just doesn't seem possible without the devs help.

    Lol, then it's not just me thanks.

    Strange toolchains...

    For the OP though, try Pong from Reyls, that's some great timewaster right there. .cia didn't work so well for me though, if you go Ninjhax it might be better.

    I saw somewhere on a spanish forum that someone ported your emulator to .cia, but that just load the demo rom and a few others.

    Well some devs don't have/didn't have a Gateway up until the 3.0 release. There's also a bit of a lazy factor in there, but testing the stuff you make is generally pretty important and hard to do via proxy unless you have someone who knows what they are doing or can just do it for you.

    2 SD cards and you're ok.
    Also, most homebrew are open-source if I remember right. It's easy to compile as .cia.

    You should try ftBrony if you are interested in ftp transferring, ftpony never worked for me and I do find ftbrony better

    Thanks for the replies everyone, I had no idea that there was a homebrew section. Thing is, I kept one section bookmarked and I just only used that one section. I never browsed the site so it's no wonder I keep missing so much homebrew releases. I just remember that homebrew releases used to be posted here back then.
    I'll have a look to see what I can find.

    True true, not all though.

    And 2 sd cards is a pain you'd have to admit yeah?
    But that's the solution for now and I can take it or leave I suppose.

    Edit: The standout for me is CTRAGB I guess, there's no way to get a .cia for it. It's got dynarec and needs services for it to work so no .3ds version, but still... no .cia? Just the .3dsx.

    I'm working on a .cia, I *should* be able to get it to work at one point, just having issues at the moment. It'll still be as slow as it is though unfortunately.

    Thanks dude.
    That's great news anyhow, wasn't criticizing you at all either. Just one of those odd things I noticed, little curious :)
