    Hey there.

    I recently bought a Sky3DS+ Flash cart but when looking at rom backups I mainly see .CIA files

    is there a way to convert .cia to .3ds?

    Ive seen that you can convert .3ds to .cia though but thats unusual for me as i want to run them on a flash cart.

    Other than that can you not run .cia files directly on a Flashcart.

    Preferably able to doing this on a mac
     
  2. You need a 3ds to cia converter 1.4,they have a cia to 3ds function,if you look at the [email protected] support site from maxcons... (dunno if allowed..)

    Maxconsole links are allowed, it is in our exception list in the site rules.
    As for converting cia to 3ds it supposedly can be done from what you are saying but I wouldn't bother, different 3ds to cia converters remove & change things during the conversion so you may find the cia you converted to 3ds probably won't work on your sky3ds anyway.

    [MENTION=6886]morbid_theory[/MENTION] we do have a 3ds section here with one thread by romcow that has nearly 1400 roms in it, I haven't had a chance to fill my uploadshub thread yet but all the latest ones are in there & any you can't find let me know & I will get them uploaded & added for you asap
