    Okay, hear me out.

    I'm currently working on a (very early) fan translation project of the awesome but creepy rhythm game Daigasso! Band Brothers P. (If you're interested, you can follow our progress here.)

    I'm currently attempting to mess with the game's update. A big part of this game is its online functionality, which depends on the update being installed on the system. Problem is, when I go to install my update which has my custom files, BBM thinks it's an 'Application' instead of an update, and throws a 'Program already exists' error when I go to install. The game itself works fine with the same modifications applied.

    Wat do? I've tried merging the update's romfs on top of the game's romfs and installing, which just results in a title screen crash. I'm unsure of where to go from here, and I'd appreciate your help.

    (If I'm unclear, I'm sorry. It's been a long week.)

    My cia rebuilding process is as follows

    How did you rebuild your update? You need to rebuild with the rsf having Category as "Patch"

    How do I do that? All of the tools I'm using don't have that option

    3DS Builder break patch (since patch can't be .3ds files)

    Extract your CIA (CIAE)
    Edit your fles
    Rebuild the update (CIAR)

    No need to play with rsf files.
    Don't forget you can't build an update from nothing, you need to use 1 as a base (so if the game has an updae, you need to use it as a base).

    Thanks, that's exactly what I needed.
