Duh, is there a real reason to use a special format for dumped savegames ?

I assume that if you just extract and install the same savegame, then your friend code info will be the same. If you take someone else's save, it will be different.

It's not about cheating. This program is simply for getting the Savegames that nintendo has fucked up with some kind of protection, so they can't be copied to a SD Card...
