So I'm using a N3DS XL with Luma and I have the GBA emulator installed, now I know I could install .cia gba games but for some reason they don't install to sysnand just emunand so I was wondering if anyone has good settings for the gba emulator, no matter what I do there always seems to be this strange Distortion in every game, like you move and there's a noticeable line on the left side of the screen when you move, help?

How about changing from emunand to a9lh? so you dont need to double install them?

How do I go about this? oh also, is there a way to install the FBI.cia to sysNand? I think that might be the problem I've been trying to install on sysNand using HBL

Assuming you using menuhax entrypoint.

There is 2 things you need to know right now, of course, about 3DS hacking.
  1. 3DS exploit: This is a way allow to run somethings that normally can't run such as homebrew, etc. Example of 3DS exploit are menuhax, arm9loaderhax, fasthax, etc.
  2. 3DS CFW: This is what you want to allow your 3DS to add more function to FW, such as out of region cart load, pirating, ETC. This one need 3DS exploit to be able to run. Example of CFW is Luma3DS. ReiNAND, Corbenik.
The choices you have now is Installing Arm9loaderhax (A9LH) Exploit with Luma3DS CFW. Can be done by following this guide: http://3ds.guide/. This setting is mostly safe from removed by Nintendo. The problem is, this setting require user to hack into 3DS System files. So it has a small risk of brick. But, if you're understand and following every step of the guide I gave you correctly. Even though you bricked, it can still be fix by hardmod. The guide will ask you to later merge emuNAND back to sysNAND.

You better do this now since your FW is mostly perfect for this. 11.3 right now is hopeless.

PS. For who concern (Not OP), I decide to drop menuhax setting since 11.3 is deadly for that setting.
Since 11.3 right now is totally unhackable with NFIRM patch. if you accidently update sysNAND, you're doom.
Any hardmod can't help you hack again until the new arm9 exploit is out.

I should mention that if you do this, you will lose your gba games saves. The guide doesn't mention that.
Since he never be able to launch the GBA VC games in the first place, I won't think he having that problem.
Unless he found a way to run FBI on SysNAND.
