    Alright this maybe a stupid question, but I haven't found any threads about this. I wanted to know if there are any cia emulators for NES,SNES, GBA, and GBC. Because I know there are Virtual Console Cia's, however you have to have install them on both sysnand and emunand, and I think it would be easier just to play roms using an emulator. Also I know there are homebrew applications like BlargSnes that are emulators. Links are appreciated thanks.

    If you searched you would see that RetroArch has both 3dsx and CIA versions available. That covers pretty much any console you'd want to emulate.

    Retroarch gives the option for .3ds files apart from .cia and .3dsx. They only work using a gateway 3ds and last time i read, they have the same benefit of using .cia files since in order to use .cia files you need to have a 9.2 or below sysnand for your 3ds. Main difference is you are using the gateway 3ds red card to run them.
