    Now that I am capable of running everything in emunand I am on my way to install as much cia games, programs etc etc, I only know of three dev tools used to install anything cia.

    They are dev menu, bigbluebox, and fbi. Which dev tool is best for installing anything that has to do with cia extensions?

    They are all good but I personally prefer fbi.

    Edit: plus the other ones you gotta find on that iso site whereas fbi you can get right off the temp.

    DevMenu is far the best CIA installer.

    BBB is old. Use Devmenu 11.4 instead.

    This is most likely a dumb question but would it be okay I post a indirect link to Devmenu 11.4? People would have to visit pastebin in order to download it.

    I wouldn't recommend posting even an indirect link, that might still get you banned.

    Just do a Google search for "11.4 devmenu pastebin" (without the quotes) and it will be the first result.

    If you don't mind me asking, what's new in 11.4?

    Good question I have no idea I guess I will find out in a few hours.

    And another thing I am surprised it does not come with a read-me explaining the changes.
