    Hey guys I'm new to the 3ds cfw scene. I'm running luma3ds on my new 3ds xl. I've got a whole bunch of .3ds roms. Do I need to convert them to .cia? If so, can someone please tell me how and what's the best way.

    You will need to convert them to a CIA and install them with something like FBI. If you have your xorpads you can use the following program to convert the games

    you can only run them with gateway

    convert them to CIA and then you can install them
