    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    made a script here

    run it on the same root as pokemon y and follow the prompt's directions. i'll have an easier app to use tomorrow.

    Hmm, so gateway actually writes into the pokemon 3ds rom?

    Any chance you can make something similar for the digital version? (if you have it) I tried saving the .sav file for the digital version but it doesn't work if I just restore it.

    And you don't have one script for animal crossing? and another question, is there a possibility of fragmentation on this two games if we transfer more games to the microsd? if this is the case, we need to backup saves each time before add new games, thanks!

    Hey, that's a real simple and nice script, Snailface! Python FTW! :grog:

    Should be able to edit it to work with Animal Crossing too, granted we know the offset where the save starts and its size...

    You need to know the address where the save is.
    Maybe examining the ROM will do?
    eShop saves are encrypted with console's key IIRC. So you'll have to decrypt it first.
