    Got a gateway today and all game rips ive tried play perfectly. Mario and Luigi dream team doesnt its a EU rip and I have a US 3ds but I thought with 1.1 gateway it would load. Did I miss something?

    Weird should work. The only known issue when using region unlock + firmware spoofing is the lack of a game banner on the home screen.

    1. Is the game booting? What error do you get?
    2. What is the CRC32 of your Mario and Luigi ROM file?

    Does it work with the original cartridge? Maybe you ripped it wrong.

    CRC is a checksum, used to verify if the file you downloaded is correct. The site 3ds.essh.co has a list of ROMs and their valid CRC. Look on Google for CRC tools, you'll find lots.

    As for your issue, I think you downloaded a bad ROM. At the very least the icon should show up, IF and only IF you have a valid ROM dump.

    OK --

    I have tried Mario & Luigi (EUR ROM) with GW on my Japanese 4.3 XL and it doesn't load [it gives me a Japanese message which I presume is about firmware incompatibility, and it then wants me to enter in my parental control PIN code, presumably to update to latest firmware, which of course I won't do ;) ], then I tried same ROM on my European 4.3 XL and it worked fine.

    Yes, I have EUR & JAP 4.3 XLs.

    I think there may be an issue with non-region + firmware spoofing together, given the EUR ROM boots on my EUR 4.3 console but not my JAP 4.3 console.

    I've noticed a similar problem like that with my console. If I try another region game on my console it asks me to enter my pin and then the game works fine so it may be that having parental controls on and trying a game from another regions prompts you to enter your pin.

    Hm. Good to know.
    I wish I could read that Japanese message. I am too scared to enter my PIN in case my console updates.

    It is only firmware 1.1.
    I imagine it can be fixed, once Gateway know about it.

    I had a similar problem with parental control enabled on v.1.1. Once I turned it off the games of other regions ran perfectly without any message.

    Just turn parantal control off and your game will work, trust me :)

    strange

    got a Jap 3DS on 4.5 and the EU rip works fine

    but i dont have parental controls enabled
    (you do realize the update message from downloaded firmware is removed with the Gateway Installer and running Gateway mode right?)
    and with 1.1 files you dont see game update message either

    Yeah, true, but I just don't want to risk losing my 4.3 firmware I guess.
    Shame I can't read that message in Japanese. I just assumed it was related to firmware, but it may not be related to that.
