    Hi everyone ,
    I want to play The Legend of Zelda : Four Swords : Anniversary Edition on my computer because I don't have money to buy Gateway and a Nintendo 3DS(poor guy x). So I ask you if it is possible to convert the .cia file that I found :The Legend of Zelda Four Swords Anniversary Edition (EU).cia
    to .nds file and run it with DesMume ? Thank you

    @lecondor has a point. Its a DSIware game. Just find a ROM of it that's compatible with DS emulators like .nds.

    Trim off the first 0x38FF bytes off the cia, save it an a .nds file, then run it in the latest version of NO$GBA.

    You'd better remove that link before a mod sees it. You won't like a ban...

    I think there is a way with citra, but you need to decript the cia and on top of that, the game probably will be unplayable (poor framerates, like 5fps... if the emulator supports the game).

    @Arubaro I know that there is a way with Citra but I don't know how to decrypt .cia .
    But I really don't understand why PC emulator of Nintendo Ds can't load a cia files Oo And why is so complicated to convert .cia
    to .nds
    @Omegadrien : I did it 4 times ^^

    Oh my...
    Try another game ! :P

    Why not Zelda Triforce Heroes, same concept but a new game ?
    And maybe Citra can make it run.

    Because posting a link to warez is always an automatic ban the first time someone does it.
