New 3DS-only games on Old 3DS?
« on: September 02, 2015, 05:42:37 pm »
Does anyone know what would happen if you tried to run a New 3DS-only game on an Old 3DS that hadn't been updated since before the New 3DS was released by using the Homebrew Launcher's region free launcher? I just can't stop wondering about this for some reason.

A little late? (hey it's still on the first page...)

They crash at the boot logo (if launching them from the regular Home launcher - which needs CFW to disable the otherwise forced card update, and this is why N3DS-exclusive games still bundle O3DS updates), or on a red screen if using Hans

For a number of possible reasons depending on your system's status: kernel too old for the version required by the title's header/exheader; N3DS exclusives using Secure3 or Secure4 encryption, not whose keys are not implemented* on O3DS; (unproven) plainly screwing up when the system tries to select the higher memory maps and/or CPU speeds :)

* Some parts of a title, including the header (which itself selects encryption keys), the icon/banner (the former specifies N3DS exclusiveness as far as the (9.0+?) launcher is concerned, minor "contents" such as the manual - all use more simplified encryption than the one selected in the header for the main application)
