    Hi, I'm trying to back up the save data on my Emerald Version cartridge so I can use cheats on it on VBA, then put the save file back on the cartridge. I'm using AceKard 2i and a DS Lite

    Does anyone know a good homebrew program that will do it WITHOUT the need for Wi-Fi? I searched and downloaded some programs like Eepinator (doesn't work) and SaveSender (doesn't work because I don't have Wi-Fi)

    Thanks, it worked, but when I load my file in VBA it says the file has been corrupted due to damage.

    Can anyone help with that?

    You have to set VBA to "Flash 128k"

    Same way you backed it up.
    Just switch with R to Save Restore and, well, restore the modified save. [​IMG]

    I tried that, but......it's not working, the only option is to save the file.

    It wouldn't surprise me if my R button was messed up or something. *checks FF Tactics* yes, my R button is jammed for some reason...

    That's a lot for the help guys, this can be closed now. [​IMG]
