@ReZon: again,

Nintendo's FAQ wrote:

All content downloaded via the eShop on both systems (DSiWare, Ambassador games and status, 3DS Downloadable software, etc) will be combined together onto the target system.

It's combined on both systems. You will not lose your Ambassador status, whether it's the source or the target system — it can only be transferred away.

That said, if it's the source system that has the Mii Plaza stuff you want to keep and the target that has the Ambassador status and games, it sounds like you got lucky :3

@ReZon: If you'd read it, you wouldn't have asked either of the questions in your original post :3

...
Data associated with any pre-installed software or applications (Face Raiders, Streetpass Mii Plaza, etc) [will be overwritten on the target system]. Only the data associated with the source system is retained.

In short, you will retain your Ambassador status from 3DS1 and be able to redownload your games in the future should you delete them, but you will lose all of your Mii Plaza stuff from 3DS2 in the transfer process. here's a direct link to the details (so you don't have to go winnowing through FAQ pages to find the right info next time).

relax, Tasuki, he's never had this kind of thing happen before.

@Link245: i think i get what you're asking now... i know with Microsoft Security Essentials, there's a popup that shows up letting me know if a virus is present or is attempting to activate itself or whatnot. When I run Malwarebytes, it tells me what shows up as infected after the scan has been run — idk about when it's actively running in the background because my netbook's so limited i can only realistically run one virus-scanner in the background at once, lol. I'd assume there would be a popup letting you know that a virus-infected file has been downloaded or has made itself known on your system if that were the case. :3

why are you asking us, Link245? Just download AVG or whatever you've decided to go with and scan your computer — you should have these things anyway, tbh. No sense not having them and then scrambling to download 'em real quick afterthefact, lol :3

in other words... no, you haven't.

anything can destroy save data when you get down to it — the power running to your PS3 could've fluctuated during a save, or you could've shut it down too early and it was still saving, it could've been a bad write to the system memory or whatev' (hiccups happen). If you're really not sure, and Google hasn't turned anything up for you, try contacting Sony.

in terms of creative expression there can certainly be a lot said for original IPs and stellar one-shots, but there's enough pulp gaming out there to choke the masses it's aimed at, lol. i think what I'm trying to say is that video games can be art, but that doesn't mean all video games are art IMO. depends on the game, i suppose :3

@Tryken: snaking as we knew it in MKDS isn't possible. the little boosts you get from drifting aren't dependant on hitting left and right on the D-pad, now they're in terms of how fast you're going and how sharp your angle of drift is. I'm told it's more like how the drifting system works in MKWii, though I haven't really had the chance to sit down and play that one, so idk for sure :3
