    If you have a digital copy of a game and you update the version from the eshop, when you create a dump of the game will it be the updated version or just the base version before the update?

    Alright well for Umbra Moon, a Rom hack by Dio Vento. I need the game to be 1.1 when I build it. How would I do that?

    The instructions say "

    1. Dump and decrypt your cartridge or eShop copy of Pokémon Sun or Moon (Must match the version of the romhack) using Hourglass9. " and the hack is 1.1 lol

    Trying to do this https://gbatemp.net/threads/pokémon-nova-sun-umbra-moon-fully-featured-challenging-sun-moon-romhacks.462295/

    These are the instructions:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    It says your copy has to match the version of the hack, which i believe is 1.1

    I believe thats why mine didnt work and i got the infinite 3ds load screen

    Which one are you trying? I will try it as well and see what to do. And you read that you can't have Umbra and Moon CIA installed at the same time, right? Same with Sun and Nova? Also, why are you doing it this way versus the SaltySD way? If you're using Luma3DS, you don't need SaltySD. It works with Luma3DS right out of the box.

    Okay, so Sun or Moon? And you didn't have Umbra and Moon installed or Nova and Sun installed at the same time, right?

    And just to be sure, you already attempted this by dumping a DECRYPTED CIA of Moon without any updates installed at all?

    Just looking a the archive, you could probably put the exefs and romfs folders in Umbra_Moon/Extracted_ROM and see if it'll work. Or just then look at the bat file to see what else will be done to it.

    So, the actual instructions, which recommend HourGlass9 although, same thing, also says "Must match the version of the romhack". How do I know which versino of the romhack I just downloaded? Changelog? Do I need version 1.4 of the game?

    It said 1.1 when using SaltySD, which you are not using.

    O. Hmm. Well I guess we can start with this:

    Try to build a CIA and tell me if you get any errors from the command prompt when it tries to build the CIA.
