    By which i mean it has CTR in the gameID regardless of what rom you use.
    Retail carts don't do that.


    Using my CYBER GADGET save editor to attempt to read savedata:

    Kid Icarus Uprising JPN:
    Retail game ID: AKDJ-XXXXXX
    Gateway with rom: CTR-P-AKDJ-XXXXXX


    Huh the more you know. That also means that hardware save editors won't work on gateway gamesaves.

    so uh. Is there a way for me to get the game ID to just be the same as a retail cart? I don't see why it was necessary for gateway to have the extra section in the GameID

    NTR -> Nitro
    TWL -> Twilight
    CTR -> Horitzon(..?)

    Yes, GW uses his own crypto save(i think is AES CBC, like launcher)
