    Could we get more information about your setup? For example, are you using this extended-memory game on an Old 3DS using an outdated CFW with reboot patches that can't run extended-memory games?

    A9LH or Menuhax?
    If A9LH, is the am9loaderhax.bin at the root of the SD card the one from Luma or a boot manager?
    If it's not Luma, did you enable custom path and specified the path in /luma/path.txt?

    What is your CFW and Firmware? Are you running anything other than A9LH and Luma?

    So its 11.2.0-35E , i use A9LH and Luma..... so i read somewhere that custom path would help but i dont wanna destroy all my settings cause of a tiny change, if its possible.
    Edit+: the a9lh.bin is in the root directory

    I have a similar problem on an O3DS, running Luma3DS (via A9LH), sysNAND 11.2. The game will stays at a black screen after the 3DS logo animation.
    After enabling "error display" on Luma, this screen shows up:
    IMG_0411.JPG
    I read that failure to boot extended RAM games on O3DS may be caused by a franken-firmware. Currently I'm doing a CTRNAND dump from my "good" O3DS (one that boots Pokémon Moon just fine) and will flash it to the "bad" O3DS, will report back with results.

    UPDATE:
    The CTRNAND transfer failed and resulted in a soft-brick. The console seems to stay at a black screen on boot. Good job I have a full NAND backup, restoring the full NAND backup revives the console, but the black screen issue remains. Will report back if I find any solution.

    I also can't launch Pokemon Moon. Just get a black screen and have to hard reset.

    I'm on an o3DS, Luma 6.65.5, emuNAND is 11.2U, and I'm lazily using Menuhax. Moon was downloaded via Freeshop, and then later via QR code in FBI. Both times I got the same result.

    I'm currently downloading Sun (via FreeShop) to try it out. I manually updated the Luma files like 3DSJunkie says and that did not change the outcome.

    Nevermind.

    I had previously updated the files to 6.6 but apparently not all of them. When you asked about checking the version I was still downloading Sun via Freeshop so I just told you the version of the files I downloaded. I was still on 5.5. It's been a while since I've used this 3DS.

    After putting all the files in (and verifying with the boot menu that I'm actually on v6.6) they work fine. Thanks for your help.
