So when I install a game it goes to the emutendo folder?
I am wanting to switch the games I have on my sd card. I had a bunch of xci previously but now I'm getting everything in nsp.
I figured I could emutendo it to pack more games on then start fresh and just use checkpoint to restore any saves. I'm hoping that saves from xci will work on nsp. Is my plan flawed?
Saves are stored on your nand. If you're inside emuNAND they are stored on that hidden partition and they indeed work with both, XCIs that were mounted or NSPs that are installed.
In other words: You can mount a Zelda XCI, start a savegame, install the NSP and continue the savegame with the installed NSP.
