Q1. What are Nisetoro Kits?
A set of parts for installing Nisetoro Capture, which is capable of capturing video from (mainly) handheld game consoles directly to a PC monitor. We sell Nisetoro Capture Kits along with portable game units. Orders for limited editions are also welcome. (Monster Hunter and Pokemon are sold out).

Q2. Can I record video games with Nisetoro?
Along with recording software such as Fraps (http://www.fraps.com/) or Bandicamp (http://www.bandicam.com), you can record the video games that are captured to your PC.

Q3. Can I live broadcast with Nisetoro?
Yes.

Q4. Can Nisetoro do digital audio output?
There are portable games that are compatible with digital audio output. The input side needs to be 32 kHz compatible. The analog-digital convertor is for sale so please contact us. Most standard PCs are incompatible with digital audio output. Even Sound Blaster doesn’t support it. Please check if your portable game accepts 32 kHz. If sound noise bothers you, a noise filter set is available on our site. If the noise filter set is out of stock, we can secure it in a week.

Q5. How long does it take to deliver the capture kit?
Normally, it takes a week to 10 days. Depending on order processing, wait time may be longer.
We especially receive a high volume of orders just before a new game is released. We will staff up members so that we will be able to deliver kits without any further delay.

Q6. Do you have holidays?
The shop closes during the new year holiday. I did work without taking the new year holiday last year, but I became sick…
We are closed on Sundays. Please make a reservation if you wish to bring your own game console for installation.

Q7. Do you ship overseas?
Yes. We ship to all over the world. Please check our online shop (http://www.3dsvideocapture.com/). We also sell overseas editions (JA, USA, and EU editions). Game software requires the corresponding edition. PS Vita is region free and it works on overseas editions. The shipping cost is $31.50 USD. Custom duties vary by country.

Q8. What types of payment methods are available?
Paypal and bank transfers are available on the online shop. Cash is accepted at the shop in Akihabara, in Japan. If you drop by our shop, we will assemble the capture kit on the same day.

Q9. I don’t know how to install the viewer software and driver.
There is no installer, so please update the driver for the “unknown device” on “Device Manager” when you connect to the USB port on your PC.

Please refer to an A4 sheet where the link to download the viewer software and instructions are printed.

The driver works on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 (32bit and 64bit), and Mac Bootcamp. We have instructions for the installation of the driver on Windows 8. We’ve been preparing a driver for Mac OS. The driver for PS Vita is compatible with the English language.

If you really need help, please contact my Skype. I will help you remotely. (It takes 15 to 30 minutes to do the installation.)

Q10. Is Nisetoro Capture an illegal device?
Nisetoro Capture is not illegal. Illegally copied games such as region free software or Wi-Fi cannot be run. We do not change basic functions or the firmware. You can update your system without a problem. If you connect to unofficial devices, it could cause a breakdown. Nisetoro Capture does not copy games or play the copied games illegally. Game software should be purchased in a proper way.
Blogs publishing CFW have no right to criticize me.

Q11. Does GBA software run with Nisetoro capture?
The original DS works, but not on DSi.

Q12. Can all portable games be captured?
Depending on the portable game console, it may not work due to the complex wiring. Latest models work without problem.

Q13. Can I assemble the kit for myself?
You need practice with soldering. If you are new, please ask yourself after you’ve done at least 10 solder practice kits. It is 39 times more difficult than the solder practice kits sold in stores. If you buy one from us, the kit assembly is included in the price. Please write “Plus kit assembling service” when you order.
Each console motherboard is different. Some motherboards won’t work. In this case, there is no way you can make it work. If that is OK, please go ahead for yourself.
It may work if the arrangement of pins is the same and it’s compatible when you connect. This is outside of our guarantee.
If you reuse a case that’s sold at a shop, it could cause heat generation, ignition, and a breakdown.
It could also cause a breakdown if you try to assemble the kit in a cheap way, and use cheap tools. We use special tools which cost at least a total of $900. Good tools are easy to use and last longer. Cheap tools cannot maintain the correct temperature and create interface peeling, and it damages the main board and motherboard, which could cause audio noise.
Our process of operation was created by much trial and error and is stable. For the latest lots, it is impossible to assemble for oneself. If you fail to assemble the kit for PS Vita, it will be unrepairable and the display won’t work. Please do not run viewers other than the viewer we provide because it could cause a breakdown of the motherboard. There are 6 kinds of 3DS motherboard. This last sentence is a little lonely.

Q14. Where do I send my game console?
Once we have confirmed your payment, we will send a notification message where our address is stated. Then you will send your console to the address. We’ve been receiving a high volume of orders. We plan to increase our staff.

Q15. What should I do if my game console has a problem?
We exchange it with a new one if it’s an initial failure within a week after you receive the kit. Other than that, please contact us.

Q16. I have other problems on my game console…
Please send us the symptom and software name with this form:
Contact me
The viewer software is updated as needed. So please use the latest version of the viewer.

Q17. Is it OK to buy Nisetoro Capture kits from other companies?
No. The firmware would not be updated, and they could have injected viruses into the viewer software. Please do not buy from other companies. It’s dangerous!
Our viewer is compatible with Windows 8, uses the latest firmware, and the driver and viewer software were rebuilt on it.

Q18. Can the PS Vita project games to a TV?
It projects games to a PC. Please use the DHMI connector. But I wonder if you could play a game on TV without a touch screen?

Q19. What colors are available for the 3DS, 3DSXL, and PS Vita?
3DS (USA/EURO): Cosmo Black, Flame Red
3DSXL (USA/EURO): Blue/Black, Red/Black
2DS (USA/EURO): Red/Black, Blue/Black
PS Vita (USA): Red, Blue

3DS (JA): All colors are available
3DSLL (JA): All colors are available
PS Vita (JA): Red, Blue

PS Vita is lack of color choices since the new PS Vita releases.
Please write your preferred color when you order. However, we cannot guarantee that your preferred color will be available.
Please ask available colors.

Q20. Can you assemble the kit for 3DSXL 3G/Wi-Fi model?
We cannot assemble the kit for the 3G/Wi-Fi model.

Q21. Do I have to pay import taxes?
Import taxes are generally imposed on a recipient when he/she receives an item from overseas, and it varies depending on the law of the recipients countries. Please check the tax laws in your country.

Q22. Which 3DS regions are you selling?
USA, UK (Euro), JA, and KA.

Q23. Does a 3DSXL capture kit include a battery?
Yes.

Q24. Does a capture kit include an AC adapter?
Video Capture Kits for 3DS and PS Vita have an AC adapter. It is not included in Video Capture Kits for the 3DSXL. The AC adapter is sold separately.

Q25. Can I still use a Circular Pad Pro after the capture board is installed?
Yes. Please write your preference when you order.
