05/06 – Quick update for Easy and Complete package!

This update fixes several small issues with previous version.

– The included configuration was set to use Download Play instead of Sound Player to run homebrew. It is now corrected.

– Adds the ability to set a Down payload for the InScripted chainloader (it will default to the internal user interface, as it already does, if none is found).

– Various speed improvements.

As usual, they are available in the DOWNLOAD SECTION HERE!

31/05 – Easy CFW install update and Complete Package V1.

A few weeks ago, we released an easy mode for CFW (custom firmware) install for Stargate 3DS. As it was requested by numerous Stargate users.

Today, we bring you an update for it (more details inside the file).

We also, as promised, release today a ‘Complete’ CFW install for Stargate 3DS. Please note this is for advanced users, and the Easy Mode is what most Stargate users will require.

But now you have the choice between a simple install and the full package for the people who want it all.

Please note both install pack are NOT required to run Stargate and if you want to just run ROMs the simplest way possible, your Stargate as it comes is the best solution still.

Both packs are available with the documentation inside in our DOWNLOAD SECTION HERE!

That’s it for today, we go back to work for more updates in the future to bring more and more to what is already the best solution for your 3DS: Stargate 3DS!

20/12 – First Stargate update

Today we release our first update with some fixes and improvements on issues and feedback provided by users & reviewers.

Change log:

– Fixed freeze on language change
– Fixed ExFat with larger MicroSD cards and nds mode
– Minor improvements to menu sub system
We thank you again for your feedback, this is only the beginning, much more is to come, and we welcome your help & ideas. Please CONTACT US for suggestions and bug reports.
New files can be found in the DOWNLOAD SECTION.

11/12 – Already at work after first feedback from reviewers!

First, we want to clarify that although Stargate 3DS is full of resources and possibilities, that will grow even better over time, we created Stargate primarily as a plug & play, easy to use device to play both 3DS and DS roms!
The goal which we are the only team to achieve is to make this possible for all users, including true noobs and beginners. We have a priority on Stargate core features over some CFW functions.

Updates coming soon in new firmware:

– New Japanese font that are more readable (requested by most Japanese users)
– Bug fix on some microSD cards where exfat format is not supported on DS games (both FAT32 and exFAT are supported on 3DS games on any type of SD cards). This is how we intend it to be, one micro sd card for both your DS and 3DS roms.
– Sticker will be thinner and shinier in next production batch
– SNES emulator and a few more updates made in house by Stargate team are in the
works and coming in a future update.
– Although we do not recommend Gateway split format, since you can just use
exFAT for files larger than 2GB, we will add at a later date this compatibility
for the few users who want to use their old game libraries, even if out of date.
– A handful of newest games (Pokemon Sun and Moon) are not yet compatible, this
will also be fixed in an incoming update.

Clarifications:

– We support *.3dz ROM files for online gaming, just rename them as *.3ds
– We are compatible with Ntrboothax/magnethax. However, due to the numerous CFW
available, we can’t yet ensure 100% compatibility with all of them. We will add better compatibility with the numerous CFW in our next firmware updates. Be aware that for now, some CFW might interfere with Stargate system and therefore can not be used. But you still have the best solution available: plug & play Stargate 3DS firmware.
– About region free: Native 3DS use, Stargate or else, can NOT be region free.
This is a console limitation. If you require region free, please use Ntrboothax/magnethax and install a CFW.

We hope this answers most of your questions. But of course, we are available
if you have any questions, and we still welcome all suggestions for improvement.
Please just remember that any improvement we make must be in Stargate spirit of
keeping an absolute ease of use to the end user. You can contact us here.
