    You have to dump to .3ds and then convert to .cia from there.

    Right around the cornerâ„¢
    Depends.
    Have you played the MH4U cartridge in a 3DS system with firmware >6.x? Then no, there's no way to extract the save for cia use.
    Have you only played it in only in Gateway Classic Mode on your 4.5 3DS? Then dump your cartridge to 3dz, after that dump the save from your cartridge in the Gateway menu and follow this tutorial: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutoria...v-to-eshop-3ds-3dz-with-savedatafiler.380246/ (A. EXPORT .3ds/.3dz to eShop) but use the BFGP.sav (or whatever ID MH4U US has) and rename it to 000400000FF40A00.sav.
