@DaveGX: don't worry, that's how it goes. the reply will show up in order on everyone else's (with yours showing up in chronological order) but on your own 3DS it'll show as right underneath the main one in the string to which you were replying. :3

If you have any other Swapnote questions, please feel free to ask them in the main Swapnote thread. Thank you! :3

Coin totals make no difference. No, literally. You can finish every race with zero coins and get three stars.

i'm sure you don't mean to come across as a jerk, but when i two-star a given GP after a perfect run, no falling off the track, no getting busted back down to 8th place, but little in the way of coinage and then i three-star it with a perfect run, no falling off the track, no getting busted back down to 8th place and 8-10 coins in all four tracks of the same GP, yeah, i'm going to attribute it to coins.

Focusing on collecting coins as well as first place worked for me, and so I'm passing that info on.

@ryanthehedgehog: these are all questions you need to be asking the Nintendo rep that will be handling your repair order. there's a good chance you knocked some other things around in there when it was dropped in the first place, so make sure you mention everything that's wrong with it now. if you're going to be charged for the repair, may as well make absolute sure that everything wrong is fixed.

@kyuubikid213: If you're looking to three-star everything, concentrate on picking up coins. a good rule of thumb is that if you're able to max out your coins and snag first in every race of a given GP, you'll three-star it.

just start it over if you don't get first in one of the races (it's possible to three-star a GP with one second-place finish, but highly unlikely). if you take a low number of coins but still get first, just keep going — i don't know if the game counts coins you lose by getting hit with items or not, but i've three-starred GPs with low coin totals (like three or so) at the finish line before.

As everyone else has already said, as soon as the first-place car crosses the finish line, second place becomes the new 'first' in the eyes of the blue shell.

@Yasha: to be absolutely technical about it, that section of the forums is under 'About the Site', meaning its original intent was for users to ask for help with site issues. However, people do tend to use that section for console issues as well, which is fine. Either way, it's a problem with a 3DS, so it can logically go in either thread as far as I'm concerned.
not sure where your comment went, so i'm going to assume you realized you were minimodding again and decided to pre-emptively cut it out

that said, since this section of the forums probably sees more traffic from users who don't use the Unread Topics page for their browsing, I'm going to go ahead and lock the other in favor of this one. And for what it's worth, getting in touch with Nintendo is your best bet, Winter — they'd be the ones you'd want to get in touch with either about 3DS problems or problems with just the game cartridge, so that's a double recommendation right there :3

Yes, you'll need to send it to Nintendo if it straight-up doesn't work. No, you won't lose your Ambassador games — Ambassador status survives even a System Transfer on your part, so surely it'll survive if they need to replace your 3DS. If it causes freezing issues, definitely get in touch with Nintendo while it's still under its original warranty. :3

Devil Survivor never really showed any of that, though, and come to think of it, neither did 999 when it came to the uber-gory parts (i only mention 999 because it squicked the hell out of me, ymmv of course). Those games were more psychological in terms of how twisted they were; it required a bit of thinking to figure it all out. This one is very up-front and personal with it, however couched in cute-style drawings it may be — and that brings up another point, kinda... since it's so 'cutesy', will Nintendo be willing to release it and then deal with parental backlash once they realize exactly what kind of game they just bought their kid? (granted, that's in no way Nintendo's fault, but you know it's gonna happen, lol.) Devil Survivor and 999 were both pretty grown-up in terms of looks, gameplay, and reading comprehension required, but this has the at-a-glance look of something far less disturbing than it is when you get down to it, and it doesn't seem like the kind of game that would require someone to think really hard about what's going on in order to get through the game.

I think at the very least it'll be interesting to see if and/or where Nintendo chooses to draw the line in terms of their in-house censorship. Will they allow this game to be released as-is, will they require some graphical changes be made, or will they not allow it to happen at all? :3

That's exactly what I hate about roguelikes, and to be honest, after watching the gameplay trailer i pretty much lost what little curiosity I had about this game, lol. Plus, the gameplay trailer said that it was 'never the same game twice' in terms of the randomized dungeon — i'm really, really not a fan of random dungeons. Sorry, syko :3
