  6. Sorry to hear about all your problems Mokong X-C I realise this is probably not very helpful now...but...if you already had the homebrew channel installed why didnt you use a homebrew save file manager to backup the 'uncopyable' save files?

    Thats another sticking point for me - its a 1 hour bus journey each way Still kind of want to go though!
  8. 3DS Console Discussion

    I was planning to go tomorrow, however now im not so sure its worth it Considering that you have to be over 18, book tickets in advance, and bring photo ID just to get into the venue in the first place it seems like a lot of work for just 20 minutes playing a 3DS (10 minutes in each room)...were there any freebies?

    Yes they could just repeat the text on the base piece as well (My third possible explanation) it just seems unusual to do that because it would cost Nintendo more money to have the text printed twice, and one lot of text would be completely covered up - plus no other Nintendo console has done this. It almost sounds like the base piece might be 'user replaceable' which would mean the text would need to be printed twice like this to make sure one set of text was always visable on the console. The only reason I can think Nintendo would do this is if they were going to have a replaceable bottom piece, one made of solid plastic and one with the induction charging coil to be used with the charging cradle. I guess this is possible if Nintendo wanted to sell the charging cradle separately (eg. sell the cradle and replacement back piece with small screwdriver) but it would be an unusual move by Nintendo who usually prefer simplicity (Hence why it was romoured that the charge cradle would be bundled with the 3DS) Anyway I have waffled on long enough!...I'm sure its just some mundane reason.

    Having thought about this some more there is another possible explanation. If you look at this picture:- http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/9/2011/01/in2ioezk.jpg You can see that the bottom is indented/recessed and thats why I think its missing a plastic piece, and I guessed it would be made of transparent/clear plastic because otherwise you could not read the text printed on the base. However then I remembered that Nintendo announced an induction charger for the 3DS:- http://tinycartridge.com/post/704438650/nintendo-3ds-charging-dock-i-mentioned-this So it seems likely that the base piece will be made of plastic but with an induction charging coil built into it:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inductive_charging and the rectangular hole/slot on the bottom is probably for the eletrical connection to the internal charging contacts on the main 3DS PCB. One thing I cant explain is why the text would be printed underneath this missing 'base piece' - I can only come up with three possible explanations:- - The bottom piece will be transparent/clear so you can read the text, but this doesnt seem likely if it contains an induction charging coil. - This is a development/pre-production model and the final model will have the text printed on the bottom piece instead of inside as on this model. - The bottom piece will be colored like the rest of the console (Black, Blue, Red etc) and will have the text printed on it aswell. Can anybody come up with another explanation? It does relate to an internal codename, heres a list of some of the known ones for Nintendo handhelds:- DMG - Dot Matrix Game (Game Boy) MGB - Mini Game Boy (Game Boy Pocket) CGB - Color Game Boy (Game Boy Color) AGB - Advanced Game Boy (Game Boy Advance) AGS - Advanced Game Boy Special (Game Boy Advance SP) OXY - ? (Game Boy Micro) NTR - Nitro (Nintendo DS) USG - Usugata "Thin Model" (Nintendo DS Lite) TWL - Twelve (Nintendo DSi) UTL - ? (Nintendo DSi XL) CTR - ? (Nintendo 3DS)

    If you look at the photos carefully the console itself does have the model number CTR-001, the CTR-003 code you saw is for the 3DS battery and is printed on the battery itself, just like the DSi battery is model number TWL-003. ...Shame this mistake is also in the n-europe news post. It also looks like the base is unfinished and still has production moulding idents etc so I would imagine it probably should have a clear acrylic/plastic sheet fitted along with a battery cover and small rubber feet, I guess this might give Nintendo clues as to which point this console was taken off the production line.

    Is it just me who thinks Link's face now looks like Michael Jackson?

    I dont think your greedy at all Gentleben, I think the most you could say is that your good at "using the system", but thats no bad thing! There is/was nothing to stop anybody else from doing what you've done, it just takes dedication
