    The save files available on sites like gamefaqs.com , is there a way to get them onto an original game? or are those just for uses on flash cartirdges? what all do I need to get the saves onto the game?

    so for example, I have Animal Crossing WW which I bought, how do I get saves from http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/save/920786.html onto the game?

    thanks

    You can copy saves to original carts by using NDS Backup Tool Wifi which you can get here
    Here is a tutorial on how to set it up.

    To expand on Tanas's post, you'll first need to convert the save file from whatever format GameFAQs uses to something a raw save file, which can probably be done with the Shuny online save converter. You will then need a homebrew device in order to load Rudolph's NDS Backup Tool so you can transfer the save to your official cartridge.

    will I need a slot 2 flash cartridge to be able to use that homebrew app and get the save onto the original game? or can I use the acekard 2 that I already have? thanks
