    I'm using the SMS4 backup master v1.26, and tried to load my New Leaf game into it, but it couldn't recognize it, my other games it could fine. Is there anyway around this?

    Thx

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    The game tags your save data so you can't load an older version of the save. Your SOL on this game.

    That means you can't cheat or have more than 1 town per cart or whatever it was.

    If the 3DS gets hacked though it's likely someone will figure out how to manipulate the "tag" to allow save editing.

    That is a big if atm that relys on another big if, as a CFW is not happening any time soon.

    Of all the games they did this to, they did it to... Animal Crossing?

    Well, at least I'm confident about Pokémon being hack-free now.

    has anyone tried paring a cart backup with a SD backup? or is the tag save data stored in nand?

    Some people have terrible luck when it comes to save data being safe.
