    How can I convert the Ninjahax .3dsx games to Gateway .3ds games?

    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.

    It's simple really, compile homebrew from source. Strip the .elf and build it as .3ds (and/or cia if you wish) :P

    oh, i said two times 3dsx to 3ds ?
    well, i meant 3dsx to 3ds is not like 3ds to 3dsx

    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.

    Wherever you want me, baby.

    I literally thought something was wrong with me and went over that sentence, saying, out loud, each syllable very slowly as I read it... Yup.

    Short answer is, you can't.

    Slightly longer answer is, this quote of my post from a while ago.

    he means compile ninjhax as 3ds file
    read the post with calm people.
    he does not want to convert a 3dsx to 3ds
    he want to convert ninjhax (the 3dsx file) to 3ds

    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"

    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 :)
