You can't. They have to be specifically compiled as a .3ds from source. If you have a Gateway, the only way you can use Ninjhax at the moment is to have a .cia of Cubic Ninja - I don't think cartrige/.3ds format copies of the game will work with Ninjhax.

he asked if he can convert 3dsx to 3ds, not 3dsx to 3ds

i heard that is possible, but why to do it ... just install ninjhax on gateway as ubergeek said

That's the same thing... And it doesn't matter which direction you go, it needs to be compiled from source regardless.

i am almost sure i saw that you can convert somehow 3dsx to 3ds, but its impossible to convert 3ds to 3dsx
I think it is the other way around.
Could be wrong though, I have never read anything about converting 3DSX to 3DS or viceversa.
Only homebrew apps at the most, out of that I don't know.

Short answer is, you can't.

Slightly longer answer is, this quote of my post from a while ago.
It's simple really, compile homebrew from source. Strip the .elf and build it as .3ds (and/or cia if you wish) :P

I know that, but what tools are needed?

I'm wondering the same. There has been a range of homebrew that is delivered in .CIA, .3DSX and .3DS format. How exactly does one "strip" the .ELF file and make a .3DS rom out of it? :S

Edit:
Finally found an answer to that by myself :) It's mentionend on 3dbrew.org

http://3dbrew.org/wiki/Setting_up_Development_Environment

on the bottom of the page under "Building homebrew for distribution"

To build your homebrew open a terminal, browse to your homebrew's folder and run make.
  • This will build a .elf file and a .3dsx file together with an icon. The icon and .3dsx file are the format required for the Homebrew Channel.
  • To build a Gateway-compatible .3ds file you need to strip the .elf file and use makerom on it (with the provided RSF file):
Code:
arm-none-eabi-strip [ELF file]
makerom -f cci -o [.3ds file] -rsf [RSF file] -target d -exefslogo -elf [ELF file] -icon [icon file] -banner [banner file]

Sorry, best I could do :/ I'm still new to 3DS homebrew in general and have just recently setup devkitpro & co...
I will try to go through the procedure soon and will write down some noob friendly guide if I succeed :)

    @ColdBlitz, i forgot breath of the wild released for the Wii u

    $60 for a game that's a decade old might be unheard of on PC but actually is not uncommon on consoles

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but they don't seem to have done any of those for the switch yet and maybe never will
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I think we all forgot breath of the wild released for the wii u tbh

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ I read that non-binary people identify as a blend of male and female. The point is i think i'm a blend of those and thus non binary
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Non-binary people are those who don't identify themselves exclusively as male or female.
