    Hey guys,
    I've been using the gateway card to play pokemon Y, my girlfriend is playing X (Also using a gateway card) The other day we tried to connect our 3ds to battle using the infared ports and couldn't get it to work. We also tried using the local wireless function but had no luck.


    Has anyone else had this problem? I was just wondering if it might be because we're both using pirated versions of the games. If anyone has any ideas they'd be appreciated. Thanks!

    your emunand has to be on 6.x or 7.x to play together even locally, without a hardware mod there is currently no way to upgrade emunand to 6.x or 7.x
    ....updating emunand now will update it to 8.x which does not work

    Ah thankyou! I'm gutted! We first tried to play a few days ago (before the firmware 8 update) If i'd worked this out sooner I could have gotten emunand 7.
    Cheers!

    If you do the internet update on emunand (which is the only reliable way to update it really) it'll automatically update to the latest, yes.

    When you say "the only reliable way" that implies there's another way? could you update emunand using a legitimate copy of a game which came bundled with firmware 7?

    I believe that would update the real NAND, but I can't be 100% sure.
    But the Gateway team itself explicitly states that the only way you should update is through the Settings after having confirmed you're on emuNAND. Updating any other way is advised against.

    You can't anyway, update vérifications are skipped in classic mode, and you can't play with retail games in gw mode.
