    Does it launch Citra or something? What does it accomplish by converting it to exe?

    According to the README, the "3dsruntime" sort of makes Citra resources usable to the executables generated by this conversion process. All in all, I don't see much use in this, since you can just associate the .3ds extension with Citra and double-click the game for the same result. Faster, actually, since you don't need to convert every single game.

    Actually, it doesn't work. Something that should be fixed in a future release. However, opening Citra and dragging the file to it does work.
