    Important notice

    For personal reasons, I have decided to discontinue the application.
    I am truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but I hope you will be able to understand my decision as well.
    Thanks!

    Most likely, although some games which are not too demanding could run.

    Have you tried this?
    • "The method is not implemented"
    Most likely you have specified a wrong ticket archive. Just delete %localappdata%/Hikari06 and start the app again.

    Also, I must warn you, the ticket archive is only for WiiU.

    No way a Duo can, My Core2Quad @ 2.83 + 8GB DDR2 @ 1066mhz + nVidia GTX 780 barely reaches playable speed. Nothing I've tried has run full speed. Citra is a modern emulator, it needs a minimum of OpenGL 3.3 AND it's 64-bit only. The wiki states the performance of any game is directly related to the power of your CPU, that's why you're boned. My Core2Quad can't do it, you need an Intel i-core for sure.

    Figured it out by doing a little searching and finding both Ticket Sites needed. Works great. Was able to get a 3DS Title.

    @Hikari06 you say this is fast, i need to wait 4-6 Hours for a 3DS Game with 471MB (TLOZ: Ocarina of Time 3D)
    Anything faster?

    The process is normally fairly fast. If the process takes an abnormally long time, then most likely an error is preventing it from completing.
    At which stage does the conversion hang?

    Well if i am clicking on "Prepare for Emulation" the Process in creating a .cia File from the Ticket Files takes 2-4 Hours, buts its not even big so take so long.

    Edit:
    Now after restarting the "makecia.exe" works fine now, but before it was just using 0,1MB of Disk Usage which is Slow!
    And now the Tool working fine again!

    Its weird, but nevermind...

    Screenshot of Working makecia.exe is below...
