    Hello guys.
    I just bought my Fantasy Life DLC here and i'm trying to make a working .CIA but i'm stuck with 2 .apps that actualy gives me 2 working .CIA, but the content are not recognized by the 3DS nor the game itself.
    Is there something i'm missing?

    Those are the files from Fantasy Life DLC:

    Can I have more info? How you're compiling, what switches on makerom are being used, etc.

    i didn't think that you could make CIA files from DLC yet, i thought it was a well guarded secret only for the chosen few.............................sudeki300

    Sorry for missing the '?' it was to late at the time i wrote this post.

    I'm not an expert, not even close so i used a noob friendly guide(very noob friendly by the way).

    Those are the steps i did until now:

    1- Decrypted my SD with 3DS_SD_Decryptor

    2- Got the Xordpads with the Launcher.dat and SDinfo.bin

    3- Found decrypted xorpads of the updates within it's unique ID

    4- Found the original file on my SD card in the Nintendo 3DS folder

    5- Moved both files (the xorpad and original file) to the same directory where make_cia and padxorer are

    6- Used the command: padxorer [originalupdatename].app [xorpadname].app.xorpad
    7- Used the command: make_cia --major=(1st number) --minor=(2nd number) --micro=(3rd number) --content0=*********.app.out -o anyname.cia for both .app files from Fantasy Life as you can see at the beginning of this post(Used 0,0 and 0 cause it's a DLC and it shows 0.0.0 when i looked at it on BBBMenu)

    it's 78kb actualy.
    It's a content lock not a true DLC.

    I see, I was going to ask if you could add the files in .zip here , but not sure if you could .

    But it is getting it's info from .title data base file .

    Version is 0.0.0

    make_cia -o FantasyLife_DLC.cia --major=0 --minor=0 --micro=0 --content0=00000000.app --id_0=0 --content1=00000001.app --id_1=1

    Now the .cia gets created and names it files correctly, however, the game didn't recognise my dlc until i went online.

    is there a reason you are not using the -dlc flag?
