I got those two for $20. One for me and one for my son. Working on setting up the custom firmware and Nintendont to servers since the closure of the official ones.

2ds’ are the easiest to soft mod too. Nice haul.

It’s was pretty easy (failed once because I didn’t quite follow the steps, you really need to count your button presses and screen taps, any extra press and it’s a do over)

Luckily the Konami Code prepared you for this moment.

3DS is considered retro now? Fuck.

tEcHnIcAlLy, it’s a 2DS.

They have switched off the servers so I guess it’s “old” rather than “current”

It’s retro enough for Nintendo to shut down the servers.

It is the most retro supporting piracy console, it’s elite IMO. I have two with HShop on them and CFW.

Legitimately the only mobile device I’ve gamed on for two years.

LazaroFilm@lemmy.world on 26 May 18:22 next collapse

Exactly! And it’s not emulated on iOS (delta goes to DS max, Citra is too buggy) And the 2DS can do any handheld emulation up to itself.

Plus I never liked the 3D screen, it messed with my eyes too much (I have strabismus /lazy eye)

In my house alone I have two 2DSes, one 3DS, three 2DSXLs, one N3DS, and one N3DSXL.

I’m tempted to get a couple more but I’ve already modded the N3DSXL with a huge SD card and a ton of games. Personally I think the N3DS is more comfortable but I haven’t wanted to transfer everything over to it.

LazaroFilm@lemmy.world on 29 May 18:31 collapse

The N3DSXL looks really appealing but not the same price as that tag sale find.

What do you meant Nintendont? That is on Wii U.

Who are the custom servers for DS?

LazaroFilm@lemmy.world on 26 May 18:19 collapse

You’re right. My mistake. I meant hShop (download games directly) and Twilight++ (play DS/DSi games)

Edit: and Pretendo in lieu of Nintendo ID
