    There are a few roms that are labeled "eshop (decrypted)". From everything I've read these should play normally on my Red Gateway cart, but when I try to select them from the rom selection menu, the rom has no image and after selection the 3DS still says "no cart inserted".
    • The files come as .3ds files, not .cia files
    • All other .3ds files work fine
    • I've tried multiple "eshop (decrypted)" files and all give the same result
    What am I doing wrong?

    Why not just install freeshop and download the games to your system? This will install stock copies of the game off the eshop...

    There probably decrypted for citra. When cryptofixing 3ds roms they have to be decrypted then encrypted again with there seed.

    So reading between the lines, it sounds like I downloaded the wrong files. Thanks!

    Yes. They will play on citra decrypted. You can re encrypt them with d9. You'll need the seed files from that site.

    It should be encrypted. I also cannot play and install cia if it is decrypted. I encrypt my cia using decrpyt9.

    No just 3ds roms have to be re encrypted. Does d9 say it's successful after doing your cia? Are they newer games that require a higher firmware? Is your system up to date?
