    it's actually in the guide. make sure the checksum is right.

    it's probably liomajor's 3ds_to_cia.

    i would say it was Lazy tool v1.1 as i just tried it with another awkward to convert game & it worked so it must be this tool but i doubt it supports downlaod play so for me it's only good for games that don't support this feature.

    Sadly, your package doesn't let me create my own rsf anymore. I select that I want to create my own rsf then I'm asked wether I already have the rom.rsf in the folder or of I'll copy it there when prompted, I choose the second option because I can't create the rsf without the exheader.info file which is created by your programm. Then it isssues the same prompt again saying that there's no rom.rsf in the folder, well there obviously isn't. I tried to put a generic rom.rsf into the "Step 2"-folder since I thought that it will prompt me later to put the right rsf in there but no, it uses the generic rsf to build my CIA. Is there any way to get my hands on the exheaderinfo.txt? That would probably solve this problem since I'd be able to put the right rsf into the folder right away. I'm using the latest version, 5.1.4b

    Sorry but i have to say this, after testing a lot of programs to get 3ds to cia.
    I have found one that gets me all my errors on games resolved, this
    3ds to cia v2.00 (Liomajor). (Link: http://gbatemp.net/threads/release-...nto-repacked-roms.373839/page-13#post-5166605 )

    (On the other hand i was using the original program queno138 with my own rsf file, and that works but has less options and is have more steps, other programs give me errors when trying to
    use my one rsf so that it is).

    At the end, desire in the future someone fix save on pokemon xy and get work new games on cfw.
    Have a nice day, and thanks for your help.
    See you next time.

    (Pd: Games of 4GB takes me like 3hours to install , example this game Bravely Default)

    My key never gets the right checksum. Am I supposed to copy the right side of the colon only or include the left side as well? I've tried multiple times already.

    I am using that region.py.

    region.py and rsfgen.py is from vappy.

    unless vappy had yet another update that I wasn't aware of.

    Odd, I added the lines 2 and 3 myself. Also, after testing that one didn't work, I updated it and with this one I successfully ran EUR A link between worlds on a US 3ds with parental controls.

    The two extra lines simply activate all the region-specific rating settings with the lowest game rating available. Works great. :)

    Can someone help me? I made cia of Gaist Crusher God and it gives me black "an error has occured" screen. First Gaist Crusher works fine. I used auto rsf and remove region lock.
    P.S. Using Gateway.

    I keep getting errors on creating rom files at the end now using the pack. I have tried now Sonic Boom Euro & Pokemon Alpha and the other one Euro and all fail at the end. Anyone know why?

    Interesting, were you using Gateway EmuNand or CFW? I couldn't even open the .sav file savedatafiler created on custom firmware.

    i am using CFW. i can start the game from scratch and when i attempt to save the game crashes. however it does create a save file which i was able to extract with savedatafiler. When i reupload into the .cia with savefiler the game crashes as well.

    EDIT: i uploaded my main file to show i got it extracted

    so to follow up i see that when i extract extdata from pokemonx.cia i notice that it only creates 2 files 0001 and 0002. However the retail version creates way more files inside of the ext data on the sd card.

    Im copying the retail version extdata to the sd card for the cia and will see if it resolves this issue

    Thanks for the upload, ill do a comparison with mine.

    Also from a what a member told me on the forum, the reason why Poke X/Y wont save is due to the fact is needs FW 5.0.0 as a minimum to save data.

    So someone may have to create a "save spoof" to get it work on lower firmwares. The only option is that we can try injecting a working save made by a gateway user to our CFW version with savedatafiler? Supposedly auto save works but to get the auto save function we have to save the game once haha

    [update:] Oh ok, I didn't think of that, it could be just missing files

    just copied over the missing files and still have the same issue. it looks like it creates the save file 0001 and 0002 but stops there and crashes. it probably is the 5.0 sdk save issue.


    even with a gateway save i used from the community saves it still has the same issue. i will reinstall from scratch and attempt to upload the main file again that i modified to see if that helps

    how would we even go about spoofing the save when the rom is utilizing 5.0 sdk? wouldnt we have to attempt to spoof the rom at 4.x sdk?
