    hi guys!
    I'd love to play to Lego Jurassic World, but i cant write (and play) The Rom cause the game is not yet on sky3ds template file.
    Is there a way (a open source software maybe) to insert this Game to the last one template file?

    Nope. Seems there's one line in the template that we can't generate ourselves, which is really annoying. :(
    So until that is figured out (don't think it will be), it's playing the waiting game with sky3ds team to release a new template.

    Thread title is misleading it should read "Can you create your own sky3ds template file?"

    yes you can create your own sky3ds template, but you need to have the information from the real card game to do the next part

    Can you tell what we need then.
    Sky3ds only need the first 4010 bytes for making the template.

    There's currently no way to add new games to a template file (i.e. create your own template). There's a "UnknownID" line in there, which no one can figure out where/how they generate it. That line was meant to stop Chinese cloners, not a to thwart Nintendo. But they failed anyway. There are sky3ds clones out there. Yup. And they just use the sky3ds template file. So good job on that, "sly 3ds" team... (sarcasm)

    People can use custom headers from legit cartridges to "merge" them with existing template files in order for their ROMS to appear legit online. But that's about it. And you may as well play the games as CIA instead, since they don't use headers.

    To add a new game to the template file you need to send some kind of information to the sky3ds team to add that game for you, if it's not already in the template file. And that can take days or even weeks. Read this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/what-to-do-with-roms-that-arent-supported-yet.390440/

    I'm not sure how many times I am going to reply to threads like this. You can't make them yourself but you can dump the info Sky3DS needs and they will make a template file within 48 hours. I have sent them at least 3-4 game headers to get added to templates.

    "unknown ID" is NOT the unique ID (private header). no one has figured out exactly what the unknown id is or how it is generated yet.
    Unknown ID is at line 3 of the template for a game.
    Unique ID (private header) is at line 5 of the template for game.
    So it looks like this...
    Code:
    ** : CTR-P-BFDE
