    I'm really sorry, I know this has already been answered many times --

    I'm on MacOS and I downloaded all the necessary files including java 8 update 281 which is in a folder on my desktop, the javafx files which are in a folder in the java update 281 folder, and the 2.9.6 forwarder jar. I was able to get that to open, but of course couldn't get the cia to be made. I tried the the chmod +x make_cia, but since I didn't have the file in the folder (it didn't seem to come with it?), it wouldn't let me. I went ahead and found that file on the original github, put it into the same directory, and ran the command on it, which turned it into an executable file. I tried using the forwarder again, and I still wasn't able to get it to make cias for me. I shortened all the names of my ds roms to 2-4 characters each .nds. I updated the file directory to remove the volumes/card/ etc. I put my roms into a folder roms/nds on my 3ds sd card, and ran the forwarder on the roms in that folder. Is there something else I was missing? I would try it on windows cuz I used to have it actually booted up on my mac, but right now I really only have windows on a virtualbox and I'm not great at making it do normal computer things and am not super optimistic about making it recognize my usb and running all the stuffs from there... plus the jar wasn't being friendly to me when I tried to run it from there tbh


    Edit:
    I was able to make a .cia just now... I haven't tested it, but here's all I did, and this may be useful to pin at the topic for other mac users:

    I'm on MacOS Big Sur. I had to go into System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access Permission and enable java for full access. Thank you to the redditor who solved that problem for an unrelated issue a while back. Hope this helps someone!

    Hey, I'm having an issue where I get the error as follows:
    "Not found:
    sd://3DS/microSD/Kuroshitsuji - Phantom & Ghost (English v1.0).nds
    Please recreate the forwarder with the correct ROM path.
    Press B to return to HOME MENU."

    The issue is, I've recreated the forwarder 5 times now. I manually went through and made sure the file paths line up, and reinstalled the CIA multiple times, yet I can't get this error to go away. The .sav is in the saves folder and I've tried everything I can but it won't boot up from my home menu. It works from Twilightmenu++ though : P

    Where is the .nds file, exactly?
    If it's in the SD root, then remove "/3DS/microSD/".

    Hi there.
    Well i tried multiple times and i can't get Pokémon (any gen, Platinum, Heart Gold, Black 1) work after the game reset itself after i receive a mystery gift, on 3DS. The game soft reset itself and get stucked in a infinite white screen.
    I tried prompt the HOME screen and go back to the game, still stucked. Close and open the lid, nothing change. If i soft reset before the white screen, with X+Y+B+A+L+R i can reset normally, but when the white screen is stucked the combination doesn't respond, and i've to go back to home menu and open the game again.
    Anyone can help me with that? Why every pokemon game auto-reset (and go back to main menu) is not working with the CIA forwarder and YSMenu as well?
    With the original R4 firmware via flashcart the problem doesn't happen. But if i use the Ysmenu firmware on the flashcart or with CIA Forwarder the problem shows up.
    I already setup YSMenu from scratch, with a clean .ini and etc. No success.

    Please re-download the forwarder template from Part 1.1 of the first post.

    It's solved, thank you! The 3DS SD Card content was indeed outdated. Now it's go back normally after receive anything on mystery gift in all pokemon games.

    Sorry to ask yet another question that may have already been answered. I've tried to scour this thread for an answer but only made it through about 70 pages...

    I have the English patched version of Fire Emblem 12, but when I run it through the forwarder, it only produces a .nds file with no corresponding .cia. I'm running on an x64 system and I checked to make sure that the ROM is supported, but still no luck.

    Curiously, the original Japanese file produces no .cia either. This hasn't been an issue for other DSi-enhanced games, as I got Pokemon Black 2 to run just fine. Any suggestions on what I can do?

    Thank your for your time with this.

    Try shortening the ROM filename.

    Well, shucks. I feel foolish. That worked perfectly. I saw that suggestion on the first page, but mistakenly thought I needed to shorten the name through the forwarder window. Thank you for all of your help and the service you provide to everyone who is lost.

    A new GodMode9 version has been released!
    To those who only get a .nds file with no .cia when generating a forwarder, you can install the forwarder .nds to your console using the latest GodMode9 version!

    Download

    And how exactly would you do this? I have the latest version and am unable to get .cia files from the program, would love to know how to do this in GM9.

    Should involve just selecting the forwarder .nds file, and just going from there.
    idk, aside from that.

    Doesn't matter. Just do what the guide says.
