HOW TO play 3ds games with friends Online by gateway 3ds?

Today Gateway-3DS team present Gateway firmware 2.2 “OMEGA” which is packing quite a few of highly anticipated features!
Gateway 3DS Flashcart - 1st Support All 3DS Roms / Games
change logs GW 2.2 OMEGA public release:
-Online support
-3DS homebrew support
-Savegame backup and restore
-Improved Game Card Dumper

However, the online support is really very useful , that’s right, now you can play online with your friends by Gateway 3DS !As we hinted in our previous firmware release, the current “scene” dumps are missing critical data which is needed for online support.Our game card dumper however does create proper dumps, and will allow you to play online.To play online you will need a game dumped with our Game Card dumper and you must rename the file extension from .3DS to .3DZ in order to avoid accidental activation of online support.As always, use online play at your own risk. Since online play is linked to a genuine Game Card, we do not recommend that multiple users go online with the same game dump simultaneously as it will most likely result in a future online ban.
However , gateway cannot help you if your 3ds console gets banned from online play.
