I've been trying to get a save from a custom GBA vc to use on pc/flash carts, but when I use hourglass9's GBA vc dump option the save file appears to be blank in hxd. I read somewhere online that decrypt9 (Not hourglass) has this option but you cant turn off the 3DS because the .sav stays in the ram, and is dumped from the ram. is there a 3dsx or CIA version of hourglass or is there a way to launch it without rebooting and holding start? Thanks

(Also a side question: if the GBA cia needed to be SRAM patched because it was EEPROM_V112, is it possible to grab the 512b eeprom from the 32kb sram via hex editor? Or are there any known converters?)

agbsave9 seems pretty similar to decrypt9's agbfirm sav ram dump, requires the payload to be launched without rebooting; as rebooting clears the .sav from the RAM. How can I launch the payload without rebooting? Sorry I'm new to this

I don't want to spam the forum with a new thread so FORGIVE ME but I have a simple question - anyone ever experienced the snes VC emulator on new 3ds resetting after you've played and saved a game? You boot the game up some time later and you're asked again if you want to use quicksaves and they're gone. Seem to happen on a few games, seiken 3....SoM..just strange.

Go to system settings, and while it's exiting hold the payload button

    they're not very reliable and they lose connection easily or if you don't plug them in at just the right angle you only get 2.0 speeds

    Yeah, my 2018 Lenovo Legion laptop has one USB-C at the back, and one USB-A on each side (total two).

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently, from what I read, Microsoft stuck with USB-A for Series. No C anywhere.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i want all my external drives to use usb c (because that 3.0 micro connector is awful) and i want anything i need to charge up to use usb-c so i don't need both a micro and c cable, i can just go with one, but for the host side, type A is still far more common so most cables that come with stuff
    are A to C

    Funny enough microshaft went proprietary for storage and Sony went M. 2
