    I'm using my personal header from SMT IV and I injected it onto a personal dump of USA Smash Bros ROM. The problem i'm having is that no one can see me online on their friend menu while in smash and they can not see that I am hosting a room online. I can still join their rooms and enter glory mode etc. online without issue. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Edit since some have their panties in a bunch - the original smash cartridge is used on another 3ds and that header goes online with it, I don't want the same header online at the same time.

    So you injected a personal header into a personal dump.....

    Dude..... this sounds like a big fat lie to me. If you personally dumped smash then you wouldnt have needed to inject a header. No one here really cares where you got it or how you got it.

    On that note IF you really did dump it yourself, redump it. That way it has its own header

    Why would you want to inject a SMT 4 header into a personal Super Smash Bros retail cartridge dump??? :wacko:, you don't even need to do it you go into classic mode and shove the SSB cartridge into the 3DS slot at the top of the handheld and play it, you do know where the slot is I presume?!

    I was only trying to be detailed to explain the issue lol the personal smash dump is a 2gb generated rom by the gateway that I purchased for another 3ds that is currently using the original header. I use my 3ds XL with with gateway as my primary and its the one having the issue, I don't want to run both games online with the same header.

    A. 3DS XL with Gateway is running Smash ROM with SMT IV header injected, has online issues as explained above.

    B. Regular 3DS which is not gateway compatible uses original smash cartridge, with its own header.

    Something not clear? I obviously don't want to play online with the same header if both 3DS are active in our household which is why my 3DS XL with gateway doesn't use the header of the personal dump.

    That makes sense.

    Do you get the same issue using other headers?

    Did you test with an other header ?

    My cartridge works online with gateway classic mode.
    A dump of this cartridge with a header from Zelda Link between worlds* works online too.

    * My bad, the header is from Kid Icarus Uprising.

    I haven't yet tried a different header, I was curious if anyone else was having the issue I explained. Does changing header corrupt my current save?

    I can get online as well and play glory mode, for fun, conquest etc., it's only hosting a match with a friend that there's an issue with, they see me as offline within the smash friend lobby and cannot see me as a host due to the offline status. But I can see them online and I can join their games. It honestly will only be a problem if this is a gateway issue and I'm trying to play another gateway user.

    Hmmm. I did not try to host...

    But, did the same hosting trouble occur with the original game?

    If you want, I can check if I see you online : 5043-3735-1785 mAn

    It works fine on non-gateway 3ds but I haven't tried hosting using the original unaltered dump on the gateway 3ds. I'll try that later today, it will confirm if the header is the problem.

    Any idea if changing headers corrupts my save?

    i remember someone saying smash bros is funny if 2 people are playing on the same connection, there was some guide to modify your router settings to get rid of the issue, but i think its buried in the smash bros thread

    If you're playing on the same connection, why not just use the local multiplayer function?

    Ok cool. Try to host. ;)

    Edit: I do not see you... Neither on the 3DS friend list. :-/

    I will host. Since it is a ROM with a custom header, we will see if it can be the culprit.

    Edit 2: Sorry, it is late. I give up.
