    So, something went wrong trying to modify and import my edited save file using that other thread's program.

    (Thanks a lot for sharing a program without any instructions...)

    Anyway, I backed up my save file prior to messing around with said program.

    Yet, when I copy it back to the SD card the game fails to recognize/load the save file.

    Any ideas?

    I wouldn't go and blame the program or it's author for not including instructions, especially considering it's got a pretty explanatory GUI as the front-end. Did you import the correct save for your version? US 1132 and EUR is 1131.

    some games will prevent you restoring a older save, if you played the game after dumping the save you cannot restore the save unless you make a emunand backup and a backup of your saves at the same time

    basically always be cautious when using stuff that you dont understand.....if you not sure leave it alone :P
