    I notice today that supercard has introduced the ability for real time saves. My cyclo is on its way, and I was wondering if this is accomplished by the cyclo. I assumed (yikes) that it was, but am not so sure now.

    If not, can anyone explain to me how you go about saving games with this tool?

    As stated, my cyclo is in the mail, and my DS will be here (hopefully) Christmas morning.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I believe Team Cyclops had stated that they were testing this feature but that it was not working in all games. It has not yet been released to the public.

    If you were not aware, real time saving is different from the save methods intended by the game developers. Conventional save games work as designed.

    So then do you save the games the same way? IF not, how does saving differ?

    Ordinary saves work exactly as they would on an original cartridge. Saves are written to the card by the game software with no user interaction.

    Real time saves are new to the DS and require the entire memory to be dumped so that you can save at any point, regardless of whether the game would allow you to save or not.

    It is kind of like save states on emulaters where you can save at any point in the game.

    Real Time save will be released in a few days, in response to the Supercard release.
