TwigZone's moved to a better place, and so does this blog.

The blog's going to be left as is, as an archive, but no more.

Note to 3DS Internet Browser developers:

Tags 3ds, browser, fail

You might not want to rely on the CPU too much for web browsing these days. Or use nearest neighbourhood filtering. Really, the 3DS does have a great GPU to use. Maybe they need to have some lessons from the Safari team?

(I miss Opera. Nintendo, can we have Opera Software ASA back?)

Want to access Nintendo Zone without actually getting near one?

Posted February 3rd, 2012 at 04:52 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

I don't know how it works for PAL and JP systems, but for those who own a NA system:
  1. Go to your router settings
  2. Configure it so that its SSID is attwifi
  3. Set its security to none
  4. If haven't done so, access eShop using a supported region
  5. Launch Nintendo Zone Viewer

BAM!

Also you can now watch Nintendo Video in that viewer, too IP locking bypasses!

Now, I wonder whether I can get more FC exchanges... because I felt like having fun with it. Ahahahaha... who would have thought that sending notes to each other could be so much fun?

By the way, my FC is 3437-3170-2657.

Reply in the blogs, by the way.

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
