    Hello all,

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't quite find a good answer after some form searching/googling.

    I just finished up installing A9LH on my n3DS a couple days ago, and decided to try and install some VC cia's off of CIAngle and FreeShop, but none of my SNES games work (both Super Mario World and Zelda Alttp). I've read I need a seed file(?) and I should be able to fix it by obtaining that file or by going into the eshop and just have the eshop repair it for me. Problem is, I could not find a seed file, and going into the eshop did not fix the problem either. I then read that since my 3DS is JPN region, I need to boot the game once in HANS, and it should work from thereafter. But, when trying to boot via HANS, both games will just freeze at a red screen.

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    Hm. Perhaps selecting the title in FBI and then choosing "Import Seed" might work.

    I tried this right after posting the thread, but thanks for the idea!

    Another thing I just noticed is that where the usual image of the game and the game system is, only the game image shows up, the super NES or Super Famicon is missing.

    I've had this same problem on my Jap N3ds. You need to use Luma's region emulation feature. There's instructions on the wiki.

    That did the trick, thanks. Sadly it only seems to be working with USA EN, can't get it to work with JPN JP, but I will live. Thanks again!

    sorry to bump this but what exactly have you done? I can't get any snes/sfc cia's to work on my JP New 3DSXL. I can get the eshop ones to boot fine.
