Then, visit the GameBanana Page for the download and the Installation PDF for the instructions.

Alternatively, you can use the following installation tutorial video.

Can I install CTGP-7 without a PC?

You can install the mod directly from the 3DS if you already have Custom Firmware. Check Method 2 on the Installation PDF to learn how. Keep in mind that this method can take up to 2 hours to install.

Does CTGP-7 work on Citra emulator?

Yes! You can dump your cartridge or digital game as well as the update data and install them to Citra as a .cia file. Finally, install the CTGP-7 installer .cia file (using File -> Install cia).

Does CTGP-7 work in local multiplayer?

Yes, CTGP-7 does work with Local Play. However, every console must be running CTGP-7. Keep in mind that download play doesn't work.
