    Hello, i was wondering if I had to do something special to get SNES CIA's running? the one's i got off eShop works fine but all CIA versions don't work. It crashes and reboots the 3ds after the error message

    If you aren't using a new 3DS, SNES games won't work. Just so you know.

    I should've been more detailed, i downloaded SNES games off eShop, they all work fine. Just none of the CIA ones work.

    How was the cia made? Did you do a self injection? Did you get it from free shop? Some other download site (Untrusted source) Did you make it yourself?

    DO any other VC games work? Like for gameboy color or NES? It could maybe be the rom, try a rom like mario or mortal kombat.

    So is only when you try to install cia files it doesn't work. What are you using to install files? Are you using FBI installer? Try updating it.

    Installing CIA itself works fine, just when i boot the installed SNES/SFC CIA, it gives an error message saying 3ds will now reboot afterwards (basically crashes) FBI should be newest 2.4.7

    Sorry i'm not much help, never had this problem. I would suggest trying another memory card to see if the problem is that. Making sure is formatted using official SD formatter nintendo suggest then use the gui fat32 Format tool to make sure it correctly format to fat32. You can also use godmode9 to format sd card.

    I've been trying the SNES CIAs but I am still not able to boot and I can't figure out why. Does no one have any solution i can try?

    Super Famicom downloaded from official eShop works perfectly fine.
    When I tried converting my own roms to CIAs or downloading it off sites, i always end up withe error 「エラーが発生したためソフトを強制的に終了しました。再起動します。」 translation is An error has occured and the software will force close. System will reboot.

    I've tried; Super Mario World, Gaia Gensouki, Dragon Quest 1&2, 5, 6, Seiken Desntetsu 3, Live a Live, Romancing Saga 3

    What CFW are you running? If you are using luma you shouldn't have problems.

    Try using the official luma 6.6, usually i don't use dev of anything without concent from some comfirmation. So just try the official release instead. I dunno what kind of stuff the dev has as i never use it but could be the issue.
