How To Get Mario or Luigi Palico Costumes in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on 3DS

Pelico in Mario Outfit

I ran across this while watching a live stream on Twitch and as I came to find out that it takes a fair bit of Googling just to find the instructions(this has improved apparently). I then posted this screen shot to Miiverse only to find out that even people on Nintendo’s own Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate community aren’t really even aware of it. I figured I should try to help float this information to the top.

Fire up your Nintendo 3DS to get the Mario or Luigi outfits for your Pelico! Here’s how you do it!

First go to your home cart.

Go talk to the Housekeeper on the right.

Select Downloadable Content.

Select confirm/continue on all of the prompts to get to the DLC menu.

Select Gift Area.

Select Item Packs.

And finally grab the Start Pack.

  • The Starter Pack contains:
  • Mega Potion x50
  • Honey x30
  • Mega Dash Juice x15
  • Well-done Steak x30
  • Max Potion x10
  • Lifepowder x20
  • Ancient Potion x5
  • Flash Bomb x30
  • Sonic Bomb x30
  • Pitfall Trap x15
  • Shock Trap x15
  • Super Mushroom x6

Now, go to the Market vendor or your item box and make sure you have 3 Large Barrels in your item box.

Go to “The Man” who is the Smithy and he’ll let you craft the Mario or Luigi gear and the Invincible Hammer. One thing to note is that each of the two items required to make the outfit require 3 super mushrooms so you have to pick if you want the Mario outfit or the Luigi outfit or some mix of the two but you can’t have both. Word on the street is that as more DLC gets released we’ll have opportunities to get more Super Mushrooms and be able to have our choice of both outfits.

Here’s to hoping they release Bowser as a monster via DLC. But not all cartoony. I want to see him as if he was a real Monster Hunter style monster and I want Bowser Armor as a result of his drops. That way my Palico can roll around as Mario while I roll around as Bowser. Get on that Capcom & Nintendo!


How To Flash DD-WRT to the Netgear Nighthawk R7000

IMG_20140701_173913Honestly the process of flashing the Netgear Nighthawk R7000 to DD-WRT is a really easy, straight forward process. Unfortunately it was difficult to find some place that states it plainly. So here it is. The firmware’s can be found here. http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/ First you need to get a .chk file from the Initial folder found here http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/Initial/. Make sure you’ve grabbed the correct firmware for your model of router. In this case you want the file dd-wrt.K3_R7000.chk That .chk file is an old version of the router firmware. You don’t want to be stuck with that. So you also need to grab the update file. The latest is  24500M but at the time of writing it was exhibiting some issues with the 5Ghz channels being visible/accessible. So far now you want to grab 24345M from here http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-Arm/24345M/ You have two choices of firmware in this folder with bittorrent and without bittorrent client. Pick your poison. Flashing to the new firmware will wipe all of your settings! There is also always a slim risk you might void your warranty or brick your router. Not my problem. (more…)
