Just scoured the forums with no luck and googling it found me no results either...

How can I copy the file? the powersave saves as bin files instead of .sav file under the gateway files shown...


How can I access the root of the card or something?


Thanks for any help - EUR zone, by the way

Well, just figured it out on my own.

For anyone trying, first backup the savefile from the zelda game.

Then go to your user folder and find the power save folder.

Let the powersave software run in the background

Copy the save file from the gateway 3.1 ultra folder

Rename the file to EXACTLY the same as the other file (including changing the extension from .sav to .bin)

it says it has the same name - ignore it

delete the original savefile´

rename the file (delete the (1) in the name)

restore the save file in the power save software

run the zelda game and ENJOY

You wouldnt have been able to do this as Powersaves prevents the restoration of edited saves.


EDIT: Nevermind, i was under the assumption PS cannot restore edited saves, well, I was wrong haha
(unless this OoT save isnt 'edited' per say)

with powersaves, I just renamed the file AQEP44ef8739_2015-03-11_22-46-55_(Gateway).bin

instead of .sav

shows up as unknown save, still restores perfectly fine :)

    @ZeroT21, Exactly. They're only good if you're willing to practice soldering, not for the long run.

    Home appliances would be a soldering gun, including plumbing. Normal soldering irons are for hobbyist projects/modchip installs.
