    Hey y'all.

    I've got some frankly bloody epic replay data on my SD card from my recent playthrough of Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy, and I want to post it on YouTube or some such place, if only for bragging rights. Seriously, the 1 VS 100 mission with me in the XFA-27 is pretty sweet footage. Thing is, I have absolutely NO idea how to start. Hell, I'm not even absolutely certain exactly which file it is on my card, since the 3DS names them 0168694792.file and such. I could take a guess that it'd be the largest file in the 'Extra Data' section.

    Is it even possible to convert this file and post it somewhere, or should I simply give up? Re-recording it on a camera phone or some such would look utterly crap-tacular, so I'd prefer to avoid that. Any ideas/suggestions?

    I believe you can just pull the vid from the SD card and upload it to youtube without conversion. Unless you want it in 3D of course, which I believe there is a 3D conversion topic around here somewhere.
    EDIT: 3D video topic here http://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-video-converter.327479/

    There's no actual video file to speak of though, it's all jibberish file names like 0658659.file. There's not even any real way to tell which folder the Ace Cobat data is in since they're all labelled the same too. I was hoping someone had already tried it. It's not a video I've take with the 3DS so to speak, it's saved replay data from the game itself.

    I'm not really sure where chavo even got the idea that the game saves actual video on the SD card instead of just recording enemy and player actions. Which is what the game actually does. The replays you see is just the game restarting the level and playing back actions, so you and the AI go through the same routes, do the same stuff you did at the same time you did it in. Same goes for bullets and missiles, etc.

    Your best bet is to have a capture device -- but that's an extremely expensive way to go about it. Crystal quality though.

    Yeah Ferofax is right, most games in general only record the actions in a file then renact them, thats why they call the rePLAYs and not recordings.
