    hey guys,

    I have a gateway 3ds and I have always had a bunch of roms. recently I loaded on the micro sd the .3ds files for both pokemon sun and super mario maker both obviously new games. Every other rom still works but when I try ether of these games they don't work . The icon for the game is there in the "game slot" then when I load it I get a black screen.. what am I missing here does gateway def have to be updated? or is it something with emu sys. I have no idea I am very rusty. someone help I am sure it is simple

    (I don't know what gw or sys version I am running I can update post when I get home )

    Thats the problem for Sun but not SMM3ds. The true problem is likely gateway doesn't work well with High Memory Mode games
