    Nope.

    It was added back on 06/24, loads onto SKY3DS just fine, shows up on 3DS, but won't launch. (Not even on a true Japan O3DS or N3DS running 9.9.0-26 J)
    I don't believe SKY is looking into it anymore (they gave up)

    The original cart dumps could possibly be bad.

    Sorry, I missed that update.
    So it's bad template or bad dump.
    I'm hoping they fix it Soon TM

    I don't use Sky3DS, but why do we have to wait on the Sky3DS team to add games to the template. Can't we do that on our own?
    Like isn't it as simple as editing a file, or do they buy the game and add specific info that way? I just really don't like the Sky3DS team. Are they Chinese sellers?

    'Cause they have to add unmodified ROM header to emulate real gamecard when GW or CFW can play ROM with any header :D

    FE if's incompatible is not a Template problem.

    It's a new encryption designed for making it incompatible on Sky3DS.

    Sky3DS team didn't have any technology to fix it. They laid it up.

    Is this confirmed? Will new games also be like this? Why is yaokai watch busters and great ace attorney working? They are released after fire emblem.

    ....publisher.....nintendo ;)

    in the past any new anti-piracy methods are pretty much always applied to nintendo produced, or published titles before they filter through to third party devs...iirc these werre the first games to get 7.x game encryption
    - Nintendo Pocket Football Club
    - Pokemon Art Academy
    - Pokemon Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby
    - Tomodachi Life (EU/US)

    one thing in common? all developed or published by nintendo

    So... if this catches on is the Sky3DS pretty much dead in the water? I'm kind of dubious on if they can come up with a workaround(and if they can it'll probably involve releasing a new version of the Sky3DS cart anyway)

    I managed to actually get it working with the sky on rxTools 9.8.0-25U Emunand. Included instructions in readme file. Let me know if this works for you.

    Does this really work? I thought the point of the SKY3DS was to run it on a vanilla, fully updated console? At least, according to Neptune, they could just be bad dumps. I'll test this out in a little bit on my Japanese 3ds, but I'm dumping my own copies of Fire Emblem IF (except for the special edition, don't own that) to check to see if it's either the template or the rom dumps.

    If you are using emunand, what is the point? Just install the .cia...

    It does not work with ReiNand and RegionSpoofer.

    It's the same as without it patching the game ROM at 0x1FE from 03 to 00 (what the 3dsfix.exe does), you can see the game with SKY, but launching = Black Screen.

    yeah i guess it could just be a bad dump, or sky3ds messed up when generating the template, i still haven't seen any actual confirmation its definitely anti-piracy stuff........although as i mentioned before new AP stuff often appears on nintendo produced games before any others, so its possible, and if it is more and more games will probably be appearing using it in future, and it is the first game that requires 9.7 minimum so i guess it stands to reason it would have the most current AP protection applied to it

    from 3dbrew
    sounds like probable new AP to me
