Notepad3DS

Text editor for the Nintendo 3DS console.

Features

  • File opening/saving
  • Search for terms in a file (Will only find the first occurence. Looking to change this in future) Jump to beginning/end of a file

Usage

  • Instructions are provided on the bottom screen of the 3DS
  • The bottom screen is also used to show information about the file and some error messages (file opening failure for example)
  • Running Notepad3DS through the Homebrew Launcher will mean all file saves/opens will start from the /3ds/ directory. Prefix '../' to your filename to access the root folder.
  • Running Notepad3DS through a .cia will mean all file saves/opens will start from the root '/' directory. You can access files in other directories from here. For example, 3ds/files/example.txt

Buttons

  • A - Select the current line
  • B - Start a new file (with confirmation)
  • X - Save current file
  • Y - Open a new file
  • R - Search for a term in the file
  • DPad/CPad - Movement up/down
  • L - Hold with movement to jump to beginning/end

NOTE: Notepad3DS can access directories but cannot create them. Saving a file to a non existing directory will NOT save the file correctly.

Further information

Each line can hold a maximum of 1024 characters when edited. If a line with more than 1024 characters is edited, it WILL be truncated with no way of undoing this.
