    I've sold my Gateway because i had no further use for it. But now im wondering, i still have the .3ds games on the microSD that goes into the gateway. Can i somehow extract the saves from it? (Pokemon X and Omega Ruby) Since those saves are stored in the game.

    You could ask someone with a gateway to dump your saves for you, but that would require them to find (and download, mind you) the exact same rom you were using. Unsure if the rom header has to match or not for SDF to read the file properly, though, but you might need to provide the rom header as well.

    There aren't that many 3DS ROMs for each game version out there. Unless Dotmore was using some sort of modded ROM or one that that had per-cart data not removed, he shouldn't have a problem finding the correct ROM.
