    As title...

    Is there a way to have a dump of the official DLC on the PC and proxy them to the console?

    Long story short i'm realy carefull when it comes to online and downloaded game and if possible i would like to avoid going online.

    Plz avoid the: "Then buy a original cartridge" commets XD...

    I will surely buy one when it will get localized like i did for 3U and 4U, but i don't realy want to waste money on a Jap 3ds for a single game ^^.

    Tnx for reading

    If you actually have access to homebrew, you realize there are several methods of avoiding region locks, right?

    ..... like i said i would like to avoid downloading MHX content from the Nintendo/Capcom Network.

    Even buying the game u will still have a JP game on a EU console ... something that is not supposted to work....

    If you're running it without any form of romhack, nope, impossible.

    If you are, depends.

    Yes you can. You can download the DLC files directly from Capcom's servers using your computer and proxy them to the game (which can all be done without any homebrew or CFW).
    That being said, you have to go online to proxy them to the game. But you could also add them directly to your save file (which would require the use of homebrew but not CFW).

    I have tools for downloading and decrypting the DLC files here: https://github.com/svanheulen/mhef
    There's a file on there servers called "eventQuestList.bin" that shows all the available quests and the quests are in a folder called "arc/quest"
    The first quest is "arc/quest/q1010002.arc"
    Proxying works just like it did in MH4U.
    To add it directly to your save file, dump your save with this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-extdata-dump-and-restore-tool-extra-data-editing.378492/
    Here's the layout of the save file: https://github.com/svanheulen/mhff/wiki/MHX-system-Format
     
    Talexius, Februarysn0w and Deneviel like this.

    So if the quest data can be accessed via SDF, then someone can just do a conversion between between dlc.mib and quest a1010002.arc files. Right?

    Not sure what the point would be. You can download the DLC directly to your game.

    The new quest format in MHX is very different from the MH4U. It wouldn't be impossible to convert but it would take some work.
