    Hey there,

    I was wondering if there is anyway to extract my Pokemon Ranch US save because I have put a load of good pokemon on there and want a backup of my save just in case. I looked at Waninkoko's save extractor but you need to put a dvd in to extract the save, obviously not possible with a wiiware title. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Is the Pokemon Ranch save protected? Well, if all else fails, you could just trade them back onto your DS and back up the DS save. Though you'll need a flashcard to do that.

    Yeh its save protected. And tru, I could just transfer them back, but this is for just "incases" such as the Wii motherboard fries or I need to send back to Nintendo for a fix and they factory reset for some reason. Plus I dont have a flash cart, im using the original [​IMG]

    Try the Wii FileSystem Dumper (look at the Homebrew Channel Apps thread), then find out which game is Pokémon Ranch from the ID, then there you go, backed it up! Just copy the folder to a save location.

    And, if you / when you want to restore the save, use Save Installer (again, HBC Apps thread).

    I believe it will work! [​IMG]

    Will try it later when I got time! [​IMG]

    Ah great thanks, I was thinking of trying that as I hav already dumped my FS, so another dump would be in order [​IMG] Kinda annoying because everytime I would want to backup my save I would hav to do a full dump of the FS, but it works none the less.

    Thanks SkH
