the region lock does not apply to normal DS titles. it only applies to DSi/3DS retail and downloadable titles. your NA copy of Canvas Curse will play fine on your 3DS.

As for telling whether a game is for your region or not, the packaging will be different, as will the rating — ESRB rates games for NA, PEGI for EU, CERO for JP, and i think AUS has their own ratings board as well.

that's why i mentioned everything else i've played — i've seen people reporting it happening outside of retail games too. idk if it's something that, once it's triggered, will happen across the board at random and stuff, y'know?

maybe it's the games that are being played? i swear to god i haven't had an error yet, and i not only updated day one, i haven't ever bothered turning off the wireless (except for once where i tried turning it off while the system was closed and yep, it actually shut off... and then i turned it back on :3). i've only got the one 3DS game, Samurai Warriors Chronicles, and I've got a couple hours logged with it, but i haven't really been playing it much because of Okamiden. I've played the heck out of the Mii Plaza and Mii Maker, though, I've apparently spent hours on the friends list and system settings both at home and at work (because i was in chat at the same time and just left it on, haha), and that's two different networks with two different service providers. i've got hours logged with Face Raiders and maybe one with the AR games (idk, that got boring quick).

i've also been taking it with me to work and stuff, earning them 10 coins a day so i can Find Mii or whatever, haha. only been dinged once with StreetPass though. i've messed around with the camera, the sound app, i've had my SD card back and forth between the 3DS and the computer (haven't formatted it though), watched that lame music video once or twice... about the only thing on the system i haven't touched yet is the Health and Safety thing, lol, and i don't think i've opened any of the manuals yet.

@ladylenni: I haven't turned my wireless off since i first turned the thing on, and yes, mine is a NA-region 3DS. i love how it dings whenever your friends are online and are changing their messages and stuff so i can go check and see what they're saying now, haha. :3 i've got Samurai Warriors Chronicles and have played that for few hours, plus messing around with the Mii Plaza, changing my own friend message, making miis, playing with the AR cards, Face Raiders, and of course continuing my progress in Okamiden. I've used my 3DS daily and have experienced no errors so far.
me knocks on wood, haha

in small doses and/or at your own pace, things can be a lot of fun, but when your livelihood depends on it, the stress and everything can get to you real quick. that's why it's called 'work', y'know? gotta grin and bear it, or (like corbs has already said) get into another line of work. :3

6,023. Posted:

@portista: If you don't know, why bother responding?

@koryz: yes, if you're tagged by another person and their Mii arrives on your 3DS, whatever answers they've attached to said Mii will show up along with them. There are fields for 'Dogs or cats?', 'Hobby', and 'Dream' (those three are filled out by selecting your Mii in the Mii Plaza and choosing 'Mii Settings', then 'Edit Profile'), then 'Birthday', and 'Creator' (those two are filled out while creating your Mii). The other user's region and last 3DS game played will also be shown. You can choose whether or not to display Creator information to other people via StreetPass ('Mii Settings' then 'StreetPass Setting'), but it doesn't give you the same option for birthday info (then again, they don't allow you to fill in what year you were born, just the day and month).

You can choose which Mii you'd like as your StreetPass Mii, though; it doesn't have to be your default. So long as you created it, you can use it for StreetPass. If you don't want to show your birthday at all, just don't fill that information in when you create it. :3

If you have any more StreetPass-related questions, please ask them in the StreetPass thread. Thank you :3
