    Setup: N3DS US, 9.2 on both sysnand and emunand, using rxtools


    ---

    I'm using the 3DS Simple CIA Converter tool to convert Style Boutique 2 EUR .3ds to .cia. I followed the tutorial and everything worked great. I made sure to check the FW Spoof box too.

    Then I installed the .cia multiple times using both FBI and BBM but every time I try to open the game it gets stuck in the 3DS logo loading screen, the one that appears right after you open a game/app.

    I also noticed that the "icon" of the game looks off, it's missing the logo. (left: how it should be / right: how my .cia looks)

    What went wrong here?

    I think I have installed about 20 different Style Boutique 2 .cia and none of them worked. I also tried FBI, I tried BBM, I tried FMP. Nothing. T____T

    Other cia games are working fine.

    Can you guys shed some light in here? I'm desperate to play this game, especially because it hasn't been announced for America yet.

    3ds logo loop usually means game needs higher firmware or if an eshop game needs cryptofix

    Firmware shouldn't be a problem because that tool has a FW spoof option (I tried both 2D02: FW8.0-8.1 and 2E02:FW9.0-9.2).

    When you say "eshop" you mean eshop exclusive? Because Style Boutique 2 was released at retail.

    Can you link me to a cryptofix guide? I haven't tried that yet!

    if it's not ehsop it shouldn't matter

    you could try a 4-8.x game and see if it works

    I have already used that 3ds to cia tool with Animal Crossing HHD (requires 9.8) and the game works perfectly. I have installed other cias too and they all work great. Is there anything special about 4-8.x games?

    Style Boutique 2 (requires 9.9) is the only cia I'm having problems with. It would be great if you guys could try to install it just to see if it works or not, though I have already read other 3ds loop reports for the game.

    just want to see if other cia games works for you
    I thought you said you had installed over 20 .cia games and none of them work
    "I think I have installed about 20 different .cia and none of them worked."

    Oh sorry, I mean 20 different Style Boutique cias (using different cia installers, spoof on and off, etc).

    Anything 9.6+ on New 3ds needs to be converted by owning the game to be crytrofixed it requires the seeddb to be dumped then converted I believe. there's a tutorial on here somewhere

    I saw people complainingg about the .3ds also not working, will test it in few mins

    update: I could confirm .3ds works fine on 10.3 emunand o3ds
    and I don't see any complains about the .cia at you know where

    I downloaded the seeddb.bin from here: http://tinivi.net/seeddb/

    But now I have no clue what to do... Do I still use Simple 3DS to CIA? Or just Decrypt9?

    Thank you. At least now I know the .3ds is not corrupted.

    I've no idea how it's done I've only had a quick read through a thread a while back. Use the search function on here to see if you can find any info. Or try google how to crytofix 3ds gbatemp and something should pop up. Sorry can't be of any help.

    doesn't that usually indicate a region miss-match, as the console is trying to load up the banner for the console region but the game doesn't have it....iirc the new paper mario game did the same thing

    It's allowed, I took it from this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-the-ultimate-seeddb-for-9-6-ncch-encryption.399809/

    Well thanks, I think you have pointed me to the right direction. Gonna try to figure it out now.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/download-decrypt9-open-source-decryption-tools-wip.388831/ (this is a bit overwhelming)

    Simple 3DS to CIA makes the CIA region free. I don't think that's the problem.

    the seeddb stuff only applies to eshop cia files......any cia files generated from a .3DS version wouldn't need a seed file (its usually only eshop exclusive that get a genuine eshop release rather than a conversion release)
    region free doesn't add in missing content, its like me joining a french forum, doesn't mean i speak french, it just means i ignored the "only join if you speak french" rule....if the game detects its running on a US console and it was converted from a EU rom it may be looking for files that simply do not exist,

    try running NTR language plugin and spoofing to the region that matches the original game
    i.e if your on a US console try running the EU english plugin....but imho you should just report your FW and region in the release thread and try confirm its a region issue, it sounds like it to me, but better to get confirmation so the thread can be updated to inform people it wont work for all regions

    Is the plugin compatible with the latest release? (3.2) Or do I have to install 2.2?

    1. I download NTR CFW 3.2 from here: https://github.com/44670/BootNTR/releases/tag/3.2
    - bin in the root of my sd card
    - installed the cia
    - no problems here (i think)

    2. Got the language plugin from here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-language-emulation-plugin-for-ntr-1-0-2-2.386543/
    - plugin folder in the root of my sd card \plugin\000400000016A100\langemu_en_europe.plg (got the title id from here: http://www.3dsdb.com/)

    3. Open the NTR icon in the home menu
    - it says ntr cfw loaded successfully, press home, and so I did
    - opened the Style Boutique icon and it's still looping in the 3ds logo screen, oh man...

    4. Pressed XY to open the menu
    - I don't see any "plugin" options in the menu, it says "NTR CFW 3.2" and some other options like process manager, enable debugger, set hotkey, take screenshot and realtime save (experimental)

    What now? :(
