Hey!

I’ve managed to get dual boot (Atmosphere and Sx) working via RCMloader dongle on systemnand. I’ve done this because some games are simply too new for SX and won’t boot…

My question is regarding SavedGame and profile data as I just can’t find a guide that covers migrating it..

Ideally, I’d simply migrate to Atmosphere and completely move off SX as it seems toast regarding future game releases, but I need to resolve how I can get gamesaves such as AnimalCrossing (which are not profile specific) to transfer to Atmosphere… : /

If that’s not possible; is there a way to launch games within Atmosphere and for it to refer to the saved data on SX?

Thanks for your time!

With a dual boot and using an emuNand, your save games also exist in 2 places.
I presume SX boots the sysNAND and Atmosphere the emuNAND.
It takes some work but you can use Checkpoint on SX to export specific games and import them with Atmosphere.
There is no way to merge all save games into a new nand so be carefull.
Adding a saved savegame overwrites the existing one.

There are a bunch of manuals here on GBATemp :

Hey, thx for replyng...
It seems they're both on emuNAND (if I go check the version in Settings; then both have "e" at the end...).

I tried CHECKPOINT and JKXV but it doens't work...

Yeah, it really was..!

I just can't fully migrate until I can rollover the saved games of Animal Crossing since my girlfriend is heavily invested in that game; and Halloween is approaching on the island:rofl2:
