Hi, I wanted to ask if it's possible to hack pokemon picross. I tried to dump my save with svdt several times so I could hex edit it but svdt just froze. Can you please tell me if you succeed in dumping your save and how you've done this? Thanks for helpers :):bow:

Well, Save Manager also fails to do it (freezes immediately on startup, just after choosing the game). Maybe there is some new encryption on saves?

There are indeed a couple files in picross's extdata folder (titleID is 17c1 for EUR versions), but extdata_tool doesn't want to extract it for some reason :/

That's very strange... what will happen if someone extracted it with gateway/CFW? Do you think it'll change something? And how do you know it's the game extdata?

Well, I'm not sure of anything but there is a folder named after the game's titleID, can't be a coincidence. I'm not saying the savefile is in there but it is definitely related.

Unfortunately, when I run exdata_dump (compiled it myself from github) it doesn't want to dump it : it's not in the "dumps" folder when I dump all extdata and if I want to dump that specific folder using config.txt file it justs does nothing.

Hum, forget all I said previously : there's no "17c1" folder in extdata, I mistook the one in "titles" for it. That explains why my extdata dumps were empty.:rofl2:

All I have found is "\title\00040000\0017c100\data\00000001.sav", which is basically how every other eshop game works. Too bad.
