Will DLC/patches work with ROMs on the Gateway?

    Once 8.0 support comes along eventually, I'd like to buy the DLC for Fire Emblem. But I don't know if DLC even works with ROMs on Gateways. Or if even patches work.

    If DLC does work and I download it onto the ROM, can I later download the DLC onto a legit card?

    Yes, yes it does.
    Now rejoice \ o /

    DLC are downloaded into the sd card. So you can use it with any copy of the game on that particular 3ds.

    Yeah dlc and patches work, dlc is console tied, so if you use a legit card, the dlc will work, if you use gateway it will work on there too

    Buddies, Is it possible to download those DLC & patches separately from eshop? Or i have to convert .3ds to .3dz & then can be downloaded from in game menu? Lastly, for all this i have to update emunand?

    No, eshop will launch automatically whenever you try to download dlc, even from within games.
    Unfortunately, neither eshop nor the latest emunand (which is required to launch eshop) is working right now. So yeah, gotta wait until gateway comes up with a fix.

    some games work, some don't I believe. I think it works for Phoenix wright vs professor layton. you can download the extra episodes by connecting your wifi. for Ace attorney 5, I tried to download the DLC, but somehow it never works.
