Prerequisites

If your 3DS doesn't already have custom firmware (CFW), go to https://3ds.hacks.guide to add it.

DSP firmware dump

You will need to dump your DSP firmware for the audio to work on many games. To do that, turn on your console, and open up the Rosalina menu by pressing the Left shoulder + D-Pad down + Select buttons simultaneously. Select "Miscellaneous options", then "Dump DSP firmware". Press B to continue, and exit the Rosalina menu.

Windows as your computer's OS is recommended, although you should be able to use any device for copying files to the card, as long as it's able to download things and has a (micro) SD card reader. You should have some form 7-zip installed for some of the files in this guide. For Windows, Mac, and Linux, you can get it at https://7-zip.org.

  • If you want to request a game to be added to this list, the game must not be "easy" to install (like a pre-compiled CIA, such as DDLC-LÖVE), it has to have game files that need installation too. Also, to be clear, I do not make ports, I just write the guides on how to install them.
  • In the downloads section, for each of the game's files, all "official" file downloads - that are made by the original provider of the files, listed after the installation instructions of each game - will be below the file's bold name. "Unofficial" mirrors - made by me - will be below the "official" file downloads. All file downloads will have a link description that is the site they are hosted on, like GitHub or Medafire. Mirrors made by me will have the site it's hosted on and the word "mirror" in it.
  • All the files hosted by me on MEGA can be found here: https://mega.nz/folder/TvpH1LaR#HFoJX7d4xFeTl-JfX0qPPA
  • All file sizes listed on this page are in -bytes (XB), not in -bibytes (XiB).
  • Be sure to check out my guide for the PS Vita at https://rentry.org/vita-game-ports-guide!

You can also use the /3ds/PrBoom-Plus/autoload/ folder, which needs sub-folders with the names of each IWAD, such as doom.wad, and one extra folder called doom-all. Inside these sub-folders you can place one game expansion (PWAD) at a time for their respective IWADs (i.e. SIGIL or Lost Levels). For mods, you may place them in their respective folders too, alongside the expansions. Remember to use the /3ds/PrBoom-Plus/WADs/ folder to store your other WADs for later. You must swap out files to play other games as of PrBoom+ 3DS v1.0.0. Go ahead and install the CIA with FBI.

WADs

You can always play other WADs, as long as they are based on the vanilla id Tech 1 engine.
