    just save your game as normal
    RTS in gateway's case is just instantly moving the save file to the SD card where as pre-omega you had to press HOME->X to save the actual game file

    you can run the gateway installer file on any DS flashcart, it doesnt have to be the blue gateway card
    so far the installer hasnt been updated since 1.2 was released, but all you do is replace the launcher file on the 3DS sd card to update it

    if you boot a DS mode flashcart then you must run the gateway installer again for the gateway to work
