    Is it possible to launch gateway roms via cia's instead of the gateway menu?

    Is there a way to batch convert 3DS to CIA? Or do you have to individual generate each xorpad?

    the Simple 3DS to cia converter is as easy as it will get iirc.

    I wish there was a was a way to run .3DS files directly. CIA conversion and installation sucks so much!

    I assume you're joking, but anyway, that's possible with a flashcart :P
    Yes, but it kind of ruins the point of using a Gateway. You might as well have used CFW then and saved yourself the $60. Personally I like the convenience of .3DS roms :)

    What would be a joke about that? CIA's are convenient once they are done, but a pain to setup.

    I've had years before CFW so no real loss, and a handy tool still. Starting to feel far less relevant though.

    I'm not joking and I have a Gateway. I just can't wait till tomorrow when I can finally A9LH my Gateway N3DS. My other one already is A9LH'd and it's so much more convenient. But installing CIAs is a serious PITA.
