How to create your own template file for the blue button sky3DS card?

As sky3ds template file has not been updated for long time and some of 3ds roms(non
Ap checks) newly released can not be play with sky3ds blue button. As the rom
header can not be added in time.

In this post, we will tell you the instruction of creating your own template file for  blue button sky3ds card. Then you can play non AP checks 3ds games with
sky3ds freely. We use Yo-Kai Watch as example.

Firstly, you need to build a game header information file( the pre-file for a template). Please follow this post: How to build a new game header information file ( the pre-file for a template) 

1. Download “” and extract it. You will get two files:
GenerateTemplate.exe , Parse.bat. 14
2. Copt the 3ds rom pre-file to the same directory with
GenerateTemplate.exe and Parse.bat.15
3. Run Parse.bat file and there will be a new file generated “parsed.txt”17
4. Open “parsed.txt”, you will see the 3ds rom header.
Tips;You put two/three 3ds rom header save files, you will get two/three 3ds roms

5.Open template file and copy 3ds rom header to the end of template.txt. Save it and
then you can play the 3ds roms with your sky3ds+ blue button.

This instruction can be only replied to 3ds games with non AP checks. If it is the 3ds
games with AP checks, you can not run it even it has been flashed to your microSD
card. If you want to play AP checks 3ds games newly released, please use sky3ds+
orange button. Sky3ds+ can play all the newest 3ds games without diskwriter and
