    You need to have a retail cart. You can dump the rom using the gateway menu. After that you use the gateway rom patcher to export the header from the rom you dumped and then again rom patcher to inject the header you extracted into the rom you want to use online

    So with one retail card header, if you inject it in all your roms, you can play online with all your games? With 1 retail card? :D

    Gateway has an extensive manual about all it's features. You will find the appropriate option to dump your cartridge on the Gateway menu.

    Yes make sure the game you buy is NEW and NEVER sell it.

    Question I read that you can't take the header of a 2gb game and inject it into a 4gb game lets say monster hunter 4 for example is this true?

    You need more memory to dump your game get a bigger card or free up 2.1 GB of space on your sd card

    I don't think that is true. I have dumped my MK7 cart and use its rom on every game I wanna play online. I have no ban issues or anything and I play online almost every day

    Yes click export header and save the bin file somewhere safe you can inject that header into any game also if rom patcher asks to fix the rom when injecting your header let it do so.
