    I have been using saves from my SD2SNES, which are in .srm format, all I needed to do was rename them 'cartridge.sram'.

    I would recommend this method:

    - Load the game you want to copy saves over to and save a game on the switch
    - Use Checkpoint homebrew to do a full backup of all your saves
    - Open up the Checkpoint folder, find the game you want to use your retroarch save for, and save over the 'cartridge.sram'
    - Restore saves using Checkpoint

    0bvious is right, must be a format thing. Have you tried my little tool in my post #70? Should work with it.
    And can you open your xtx.z in Switch-Toolbox, just to check it out?

    Could be normal, sadly some hacked and/or translated roms don't work with SNES Online.

    I tried these Mario Hacks and they all work:

    Classic Mario World - The Magical Crystals
    Classic Mario World 2 - The Great Alliance
    Classic Mario World 3 - The Finale
    New Super Mario World - The 12 Magic Orbs
    Super Mario Bros - The Hunt for the Magical Key
    Super Mario World Co-Op
    Super Mario World - Return to Dinosaur Land
    Super Mario World 2+3 - The Essence Star
    NEW SMW2 - Yoshi's Island
    SMW2+
    SMW2+2
    SMW2 - Yoshi's Island - Kamek's Revenge

    I don't anticipate any trouble with the compatibility of the current versions CaVE and SFROM Tool and the coming update, based on the selection of new games.

    I don't anticipate any major issues adapting the Full Unlock either, but be advised that the current Full Unlock is for version 4.0.0.0 only. As this update only contains 4 games that are known to work fine with basic settings already, there shouldn't be much of a demand for an update ASAP. So just a heads up that if there is an issue, I'll be taking my time on a update if needed.

    Seeing as its fun to make predictions, and test what I have learned. Here's what I predict for footers/codes.

    New Super Mario Land is a new homebrew game coded from scratch, rather than a ROM hack, FWIW. Think there's a thread about it linked from gbatemp front page, if you're interested.

    Oh yeah, I didn't know, thought it's one of the many hacks.
    Looks great, thanks for info.
