A few quick tips for those doing a system transfer. Mine took 5 hours to do. Ffffff.

I just finished playing a bit on my New 3DS. The Majora one. Ees purrrrdy. :'D I really like the system overall. Loads faster, 3D actually works as advertised (finally), and the Majora design isn't just cheap paint, it's like... Lacquered. It's really quite interesting.

Anyway.

First problem I had: The New 3DS, for whatever reason, refuses to recognize WPA2 network encryption. I have no idea why, because my old 3DS XL has no problems at all. I actually had to factory reset my router and change the encryption type to do the system transfer, which is just retarded.

Also, make sure you buy a bigger memory card in advance. The New 3DS only comes with 4GB, and the amount of data I had to transfer over came out to 3.51GB. They definitely should have included a bigger card. 32GB is the max supported by default (I got one for $17 from Canada Computers), but I've read you can make it do even more with a bit more busywork.

Third: Messy is a troublemaker. He shoots witches.

Also, make sure you have a #0 phillips head screwdriver. I have tiny screwdrivers for wiring contacts in electrical panels, I literally have about 20 of them in my pencil holder on my desk, and these were too big. The screws are a really shit material (probably aluminium), and they'll strip faster than a cheap hooker.

Unless you're completely inept at computers, the PC system transfer option is by far the least painless. I know a lot of YouTubers had a bitch fit over how hard the whole thing is, but it's actually really fucking easy. It's quickest to do it with a PC, but you can also do it wirelessly if you don't care about leaving both systems on all day. It does everything for you. I honestly don't understand what sort of rotary phone-using idiot could have trouble with this.

That is all for now.
