Messing around with video conversion settings...

Posted December 8th, 2011 at 01:47 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

OK, here's the deal about 3DS video playback. We know that the file cannot exceed 10 minutes long. That's a given.

As for other things, though...

  • When converting audio, you can use either IMA ADPCM or uncompressed PCM. Both work - IMA ADPCM takes up a quarter of size compared to uncompressed PCM, but may introduce aliasing. MP3 will not work.
  • The audio sampling rate can be anything. Same thing goes for audio channels. For CD-quality, try 44100 Hz and stereo audio.

Just did the 3DS system update

Posted December 6th, 2011 at 08:58 PM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Observations?
  • I noticed that a Nintendo Zone app was installed along with the update. Too bad I can't really use it because there are no Nintendo Zone hotspots around here.
  • Nintendo 3DS camera now records videos. It records and stores video in widescreen, and I think you should be able to view it on anything that supports 3D video playback, and also anything as long as you remove the second video stream or something.
  • StreetPass Mii Plaza should be renamed to Mii Plaza now. Why? It's now SpotPass

Should I chuck in some eShop credit now?

Posted November 14th, 2011 at 01:13 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Title says it all. I'm getting interested in eShop goodies, and I think I'll have to buy them when they come... and actually...

Wait, is Freakyforms good? Anything else to watch for?

I guess Nintendo really wanted to play it safe, huh?

So I decided to turn on my 3DS at 4:05 PM. The battery meter fell down by one block at 6:07 PM. There is a sleep period in the middle. I calculated it and I think I got 106 minutes (there was 16 minutes of dinner break sleep in between) before having it fall by 25%. Let's see...
Brightness 3, 2D, audio volume maximum, Wi-Fi on and used (eShop, online gaming, StreetPass, SpotPass)

106 minutes times 4 blocks = ~424 minutes
424 minutes divided by 60 minutes = ~7.07 hours...

Also two spare styli for the 3DS just in case I break my current one or lose it...

Well, photos, too! They are all in spoilers.
Spoiler:

(The box, the spare styli pack (aftermarket) and my 3DS. Notice anything different about the box art?)

(The box itself. Ditto)
