Subv
nonsense, connect your 3DS to Dolphin as a wiimote for over-the-top lulz
profi200
Nope, connect a GC controller to a 3DS emu running inside a Wii U emu on a Wii U gamepad :p
linkmauve1
Subv, I actually do that, but only as a GC controller.
Its a pretty fine controller, and I dont notice the latency over wifi.
Subv
nice

I'm slowly reconstructing the list of directories on my SD card
this shouldn't take too long to redo the entirety of the Nintendo 3DS folder, which is all I care about
profi200
What happened?
endrift
my 3DS decided to format the SD card surreptitiously
the FATs are gone
so I'm reconstructing stuff by hand
hoping no files that are important are fragmented
profi200
O.o
The 3DS itself does no formatting at all. It just creates a new Nintendo 3DS dir and throws all data in.
endrift
well SOMETHING formatted the FAT
it probably thought the card was corrupted
and decided to reformat the card
the data's all still there
but unindexed
given the fact that I never filled up the card, it's presumably not fragmented at all
profi200
Windoze does that job for you :p
If you copy multiple files it fragments them.
endrift
(Action) doesn't use Windows
plus this SD card has only been touched by the 3DS
more or less
profi200
That's really stupid. And also it writes files every time to different places. SD cards do wear leveling by themself already -_-
endrift
:/
well I'm gonna try regardless
a bunch of what I care about is the titles, which only get written once
4 files recovered
profi200
You will maybe hit light speed.
:p
yuriks
xD
endrift
5 files recovered
yuriks
well, it's better than nothing
endrift
I'm still going
profi200
Don't you have a backup?
endrift
Not that's new enough
I was fooling
foolish*
anyway 6 files recovered
profi200
Fun fact: I was able to finish Metroid Zero Mission on mGBA without any freeze. All i did was update to 10.0.
endrift
oh interesting
maybe it really is a stability update :P
yuriks
I didn't update and can't launch tubehax properly anymore, makes sense
(not really)
so, since tubehax runs the homebrew on a separate process it should be fine to just call svcExitProcess, right?

yuriks
hehe
profi200
If you do that it will not deinit the services.
yuriks
I just want to check if that'll stop the crash/freeze
my branch dies somewhere after main
profi200
It will probably hang because it can't properly exit to hb menu and the system is in a broken state.
yuriks
ok, apparently for tubehax to work I have to madly tap the change fw version button, otherwise it crashes
how are you even supposed to use that button, anyway?
endrift
17 files recovered, 1 unrecoverable so far btw
so many left
yuriks
how are you recovering them, exactly?
endrift
by hand
a hex editor and research on FAT32
there don't seem to be free tools out there that do what I'm doing
I'm like 1/20th done btw
maybe less
probably less
this is gonna take all night
it's like 2 minutes per file and there are likely hundreds of files
yuriks
oh...
isn't it faster to just write a tool to do it? (assuming it's obvious how)
endrift
yes
but I'm too lazy
yuriks
lol
I know that feel, tho
endrift
so I'm doing it the unlazy way
Subv
endrift: tried TestDisk?
endrift
Subv: the FAT is gone, I don't think TestDisk can handle that
Subv
oh, hmm
endrift
oh wait yeah that is the one I tried
it totally can't handle that
yuriks
PhotoRec can recover files, but it does that by detecting signatures, so...
endrift
yep, that wasn't useful for me
yuriks
TestDisk can still save the FS if you have a backup superblock or whatever lying around, but since you said it got reformatted that's like the worst possible case
endrift
yep
once I finish recovering extdata I may grab dinner or something idk
yuriks
(Action) keeps attempting tubehax
I've no idea what happened to this
smea: have you changed it somehow for yesterday's update? I managed to launch it twice out of more than 10 tries
ok, crash mystery solved, and god if it wasn't dumb: forgot to call gfxExit
Lectem
it happens ^^
yuriks
I was under the impression that it was already called by the ctrulib shutdown
smea
all i did was modify tubehax html last night
endrift
okay I'm like 3/5 done I think
maybe a bit more
I appear to have panicked the 3DS
smea
be sure to calm it with a soothing voice
endrift
hmm
it appears to have rejected most of the data
well
I got the banner for Ironfall to show up
but it crashes when I try to launch it
I think I figured out why Ironfall was crashing haha
