    Hi everyone, just a quick curious question about installing updates to games.

    For example, If i had a JP Region Free (via patch) cia, would i need to install a RF update cia of it or just a regular cia update of it?

    And while on the matter, how do i go about installing updates via cia file? Is it the same as installing a game cia? (I use FBI for installing cias)

    Thanks in advance everyone :)

    I believe what you need to do is find out what the original games region was. (Japanese I assume) Then you need to get an update that matches that cia files original region. (Base Japanese cia update with RF) I'm not 100% sure but I believe I read this in a thread over on "That iso site"

    EDIT: I din't read you whole post but yes just install updates/dlc like a regular game. They wont show up tied in a bow like regular games but they will be installed. Hope this helps! :lol:
