    I've looked through these boards and Google and have found conflicting info:

    If I get a private header, all I need to do is update the game's .cfg file on the SD card, right? Or do I need to use a ROM patcher tool as well to insert the private header into the ROM?

    That's all you should need to do on a sky3DS+. Also, you'll end up losing your save file btw.

    So no actual ROM patching then?

    I can live with losing my save files, I just got the New 3DS and Sky 3DS+ so I have no save files to keep!

    Or do you mean I'll lose them every time I play online?

    No ROM patching.

    And what I meant is if you already had saves. You won't lose them everytime you play online.

    Great thanks, so it really is a one-time effort to edit a .cfg file for each game?

    Is it worth doing every game anyway, or is there a list of games that actually have online multiplayer somewhere?
