    Not really, unfortunately. Google Drive only gives you a real download url for a limited amount of time, so although it will install from it just fine, you have to locate the real download URL manually every time from the page source. You might be able to get it to work with a link generator site if you play around with it a bit.

    Proper support would require implementing the Google Drive API in this app, which I don't really have the time for at the moment.

    Don't think so. You need direct download links, nothing that requires to click this and that. Cloud services won't work for that I'm afraid. So if you can't host it on http or ftp directly, I think it won't work. Except for mega because this installer here specifically supports it.

    Yeah, this supports decrypting from mega file links, but not folders. So it needs to be a link directly to a .cia file on MEGA.

    How do I actually get a "direct" link on Mega? Linking to the download page of the .cia file after converting it to a QR code just gives me an error message and the program closes.

    If it's a link to a Homebrew cia file, put it here so I can look at it. If it's a game then just put everything except the last few characters so it isn't piracy.

    It's still somewhat functional, but since the big push for TLS 1.2 on most websites like GitHub, combined with the TLS 1.1 and lower limitation of the 3DS's httpc code itself, there's not a whole lot that will work entirely as expected anymore with this directly.

    Honestly, this was more of a proof of concept to demonstrate the 3DS was capable of doing direct installs from the web, and now that FBI supports the same features, this tool can be considered deprecated. The only feature this has that can't be found elsewhere is direct install support from Mega.nz, but that too would be better served by the FBI app if you can talk the developer into adding it.

    Are you sure you're using the correct direct-to-file link syntax from Mega? A direct link looks like this:

    https://mega.nz/#!OnVjRRrT!eIWEiEh7H7sgrchrn8qM4TXDqbhGvhGgWyDwc5bdZNz

    If your example isn't that same style and length, you're probably trying to link to a folder or something instead. The crash isn't really unexpected, it's a very simple program and it just tries to install whatever it finds, valid or not, and fails if anything goes wrong.

    This example is intentionally invalid, as I'm not aware of any legitimate .cia files on mega to test with, but there's no reason that things should have changed.

    I have mine as the same length but when I use the website given on the first page it gives me an crash error for each one of them. Any idea on how to fix that?

    This project is pretty much dead at this point unfortunately. The internet has moved away from the older versions of TLS (https) that the Nintendo 3DS supported natively, and as such the internal code in the system really can't talk directly to a whole heck of a lot anymore. I doubt you're going to be able to get much use out of this app these days. Sorry :(
