    I am hoping to start a thread where people can exchange saves using Datel's 3DS Powersaves device. I have some I can share with people for the following games:

    - New SMB2
    - Super Mario 3D Land
    - Zelda ALBW
    - Paper Mario Sticker Star
    - Mario and Luigi Dream team
    - Tales of the Abyss
    - Kingdom Hearts 3D

    Saves are in US BIN format.
    Thoughts appreciated :)

    Does this tool also work on DS games like Pokemon Black and White?

    Supposedly this has been out for a bit. I wonder why there's almost no talk of this device. Is it because it doesn't work as advertised?

    It does work, I have one. Just does not work with NAND-save based games such as Animal Crossing and Pokemon X/Y.

    The lack of talk surrounding this item is certainly weird... I mean, it isn't even listed on Datel's own website in the US, and so far Amazon is the only U.S site besides eBay where I see it sold.

    I ordered one recently and hope to have it available not long after the new year. It sucks that modern consoles don't have traditional cheat devices, but for what it is worth I do enjoy using my PS3 game genie and I expect this to be just as good for me.

    So what kind of 'codes' are available on games like New Super Mario Bros 2, Zelda: A link Between Worlds and Fire Emblem? (if supported). I just cannot find any lists of what codes work online.

    No saves or codes for Zelda ALBW yet, but device does detect the game as I can back up my save data with it. You can either download their powersaves, or modify save you already have. List of supported games are here: https://powersaves3ds.maximummemory.com/

    For NSMB2, you can have Max Lives

    Finally someone make a Thread for this Device. So people can stop saying there's no C
    AR for the 3DS.

    Well is not a AR literally but get the point

    I don't know if we can exchange saves though, the device attaches a header segment to the save coding... Anyone else more experienced with coding know more about this and what if anything can be done?

    Can't imagine a way to insert the save into the game without some device anyways even if it were sharable. My question is, does it only work with physical cards? Or digital also?

    I agree the one thing I miss from the old era of gaming is the old cheat devices in our current era we barely see any cheat devices there isn't even a gameshark for WiiU.

    Well thats disappointing, another reason going all digital is bad, but the convenience is too great.

    You can rent a physical copy, inject a save, then use the save transfer tool :P

    Sorry, but no. Pokemon X/Y use NAND based saving. In my experience, games that have one save such as Pokemon and Animal Crossing use NAND saving. I think games that can have multiple saves don't use NAND save. As far as I know, not many games use that save type.
