Afternoon everyone, I'm sorry to create a thread just to ask a question :(
So, there it is, I played a lot at Fantasy Life after installing it as a .cia, but as I really enjoyed this game, I want to buy it (as a cartridge) in order to support the developers.
I already know that the game saves in the exdata folder (not on the cartridge), and that the .cia save is slightly different than the cart save, for whatever reason.
SO! Is it possible that I buy a cartridge of Fantasy Life and transfer the save of the .cia onto the cartridge?
Considering that the save if console-specific, could I just transfer it from the emuNAND .cia onto the sysNAND cart?
Any help would be nice :)
Thank you very much!

I actually face this issue while I was hunting down my own copy of the game, if you have the CIA for your region and you get a Cart for you region you won't actually have to do anything as they both read the same save files whether it is Cart or eShop(CIA) versions, if you have different region's you can use the Fantasy life dumping too (FLsavetool) from here to dump and restore your saves to the new game.

    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

    USB4 can do up to 40gbps I'd welcome it

    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

  • Shape @ Shape:
    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    How? That transfer speed is insane
    +1
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming
    +2
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
    +2
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
