    Hi there. I've got a question, now that I finnally managed to downgrade to 9.2:
    I installed the Final Fantasy Explorers game through a CIA file. I would like now to extract the save file, but the Save manager/SVDT do not even detect the game. Is there a program/step I am missing?

    You can use savedatafiler

    You also need to have booted the game at least once before you can attempt to install or extract save data.

    The only downside to using savedatafiler is that you need to remember the title id to get the save.

    That's why JK's Save Manager is great, gives you the names and seems to work for more people, I had loads of problems with SDF.

    Wow, thanks, guys. Believe me, I searched por any program/tutorial before starting the thread, but I found nothing. Seems I didn't search correctly.
    Again, thanks for the help. ^^

    Yeah, you have to use advanced search and know what you're looking for in order for the search function to be of much help at all. Forum searching is quite different than google searching. I know it tends to give me lip, even when I know what I'm looking for.
