    Would I be able to boot into classic mode and remove the red card then start up a .cia?

    So I can use a single gateway for 2 3DS's (well infinite amounts of them I guess lol).

    Edit: :( people are saying it won't work. Oh well.

    Edit 2: Apparently I can start up .cia's in gateway mode without the red card though :D. So it all works out.

    No but you can boot into gw mode and remove the red card.

    Just this, does the very same trick, infinite Multiplayer-copies as long as all DS´s are ?gateway-able-ish?

    Don't know why you're saying darn, he just said you can do what you want to do. You're after multiple consoles one gateway right?

    He's said no though :O I won't be able to start up the .cia's. So being in classic mode doesn't do much for me :P.

    not 'NO', it depends on what cia.
    cia is just 3ds content before it is installed.

    Ok let me clarify. If your trying to use the gateway to enter gw mode, take the red card out and still be able to use cia's then yes you can do that. If your trying to do the same in classic mode the cias won't work.

    Ohh. Weird, didn't think I could be in gateway mode without the red card. Thanks lol.

    Guess I can share my gateway card with my sister :lol:
