    Ok. Installing cias is quite simple with FBI, but I noticed that I'm unable to install SNES games with it. Also, they have additional DAT file.
    How to install them correctly? Is there a special way to do it?

    Are you using a *new* 3ds/2ds or a 3DS/2DS?

    You can't use SNES VC games on an Old 3DS

    Use snes9x (or whatever emulator runs best) injections instead, as people said official vc snes is n3ds only, probably because it needs the extra processing power

    Like @bi388 said, not all hope is lost.
    You can also make custom SNES VC with NSUI that's ussable on an o3DS with a different Injection method, just not the official SNES Virtual Console option.

    Yep that's what I thought. Glad we got it figured out together.
