(SmileBASIC is a BASIC interpreter for the Nintendo 3DS)
SmileBASIC has a special "folder" named
SYS that contains built in resources, such as the default sprite sheets, font, and sample programs.
It cannot be modified, since it's not actually a folder; it's stored in the game's ROM. (It's just treated as a folder so you can easily load files from it)
Every copy of SmileBASIC has the exact same files in
SYS, and SB would not work without them.
The "clear everything" command,
ACLS, loads the default sprite sheets and font from
SYS, and they are also loaded automatically whenever a program is run from the main menu. The
FONTDEF (reset font) command also loads from
My question: "Is it ok to load files from
SYS without them counting towards the program size?"
