    Some games are pretty large, like bravely default. How do i install those with a9hl in 11.2?

    just as said above, just like anything else. Are you referring to the rom size being too big for FAT32?

    In that case, CIAngel/Freeshop should do it.

    Figured out the interface after exploring it a bit. One question though... does it need to be opened while downloading?

    if you have the rom on your PC, shove that SD card in, zip the rom with 7Zip or similar (if it isn't already) and just extract it straight to the SD. takes a while depending on your card though. make a sandwich and watch some TV while you wait. >:|

    I have a Donkey Kong Country Returns cia, and it's 4gb. It's too big to put on a FAT32 card, and I don't have anywhere to hook my 3DS up to internet. Can I install the cia over a local network (I.e. a modem without internet) if the cia is on a computer also hooked up to the same network? I've been wondering for a while, but I didn't want to start a new thread just to ask. Thanks!

    Right behind you
    No games are over 4GB, the biggest is Xenoblade Chronicles 3D at 3.6GB, followed by Bravely Default at 3.24GB.
    Something is wrong with your CIA, it should only be about 2.16GB.

    Essentially, as CIAs are effectively trimmed because they don't need to match a cart size, no games that exist as of now are 4 gigabytes or larger.
    Something is wrong with your CIAs if they're too big to transfer to a FAT32 card, I installed Bravely Default via CIA no problem back before things like tikShop, CIAngel, and freeShop were around.

    I've looked around and a DKCR cia that's about the size you suggested. Thank you for the information!!
