    13/02 – 11.3 Emunand

    It's been just over a week since Nintendo sadly updated their Nintendo 3DS firmware to v11.3, but now Gateway 3DS developers have released an 'status update' on their progress towards a big new update for their flashcarts with lots of amazing new features!

    People were worried Gateway 3DS had not updated their website, but no longer, and in their 'status update', they have stated that alot more goodies are in store, so the wait will be well worth it, all tho sadly it might still be a few more weeks away, but its coming SOON!
    Good things come to those that wait! :)

      Yes. Gary has already stated this. They will release the new features first, then a week later they will release the emunand update. Now remember gateway has coined the term soon. So who knows if the timeline will actually hold.

      Edit: on page 2. An email shared by logic sunrise which gary posted on here.

      Personally i think they have waited to long.
      Most people have moved to custom firmware as its better and they are sick of waiting.
      Dealing with Chinese groups is like talking to a concrete wall.

      It is more then Soon yet, currently the Chinese factory ramping up production on more Gateway cartridges (no not a #2 version, same design), just the sales dept. figures there will be rash of new GW buyers once the update which is currently being privately tested comes out in few weeks or less, hopefully this month for sure, the coder is calling it an 'killer' update, meaning other products on the market both FREE and things like Sky3DS will be old outdated items once the final new GW update is released for all to enjoy.

      oh that sounds quite promising, thank you for the information. Maybe when they finish they could say "Good News Everyone" like in Futurama

      Gary cant wait but i am sure its to late for many people including myself who have now moved to custom firmware.
      By delaying an update for many months its not a good way to increase sales do they realise this?

      or, use luma until the update.
      .3ds file? Convert to .cia.

      ALWAYS options...

      I think the devs @ gateway are, like most devs, missing the point of support, or not paying attention to people's commentary/requests - we just want to be able to do what we already were able to do, play games from the card, online or not. We DON'T NEED new features. We need A FUNCTIONING EMUNAND - that should be the priority! New features can wait, basic functionality should ALWAYS take precedence. The biggest issue here is that while they are messing about, Nintendo can update yet again, and they will be even further behind, yet again.

      (Op-Ed: This is generally a problem with all software developers, they don't often see the big picture of their users, just deeming what they want to see and do as being important. With most things, especially emulators/open source stuff, it's on their dime, so we really don't have room to complain, but in this case, it's a paid-for product. That makes it ridiculous.)

      And yes, I know I could switch to Luma, but fact is, I use .3ds ROMs, don't like the idea of converting them all to .cia/installing to the internal space, and see no benefit to CFW for Gateway users other than running emulators (which aren't great) - I don't even play online myself, I just want my Gateway to be up to date. I LIKE running the ROMs from the card, and the menu system, and the cheat system.

      "Soon" isn't really good enough at this stage, and I'm not even convinced they read these forums or they wouldn't be so silent. At least they should hive off a dev to patch the existing FW for Emunand support in parallel before Nintendo updates again.

      Gary you should know by now nothing from GW comes in the timeframe they state. Yeah I know, you're just stating what you were told. :thumbsup:

      To be honest i am disappointed to find out the team are Chinese. I always thought the team was from Europe. Now i know why we have such large delays.
