    How would I go about transferring my save files from my retail games and putting them onto my flash card?

    I'm having a problem, when I type the command

    My savsender.conf.txt document has my correct IP address and the port I'm forwarding. The IP address matches the one shown in IPconfig on my routers port forwarding page. What am I doing wrong? I did cd to the right folder.

    Don't ask me, i've never used it even though I suggested it.

    I would hazard a guess that you are having an issue because you put a space between "Pokemon Platinum", use an underscore instead. It probably thinks Pokemon is the host (and hence can't find it) whle Platinum is the output file.

    I resorted to using savreceiver rather than netcat but that's probably why netcat didn't work. Oh well, at least it worked.

    (never used the app myself but command line tools usually act this way.) [​IMG]

    EDIT: After having a quick readup, sounds like a configuration error and it's trying to do it from the wrong IP or Port. [​IMG] Or possibly software firewall on your PC is blocking access.

    I don't think the file name is "savsender.conf.txt", but just "savsender.conf".

    From here ( http://blog.b-ark.ca/savsender ):

    In order to use this tool, patch it with the appropriate DLDI driver, install the application, and create a config file on your device in /data/settings/savsender.conf.

    Oh well. Maybe someone will find it helpful. It helped me out since I've never heard of savreceiver.

    Edit: Cool. Savreceiver is an easy replacement for netcat. I've never used either since I have a 3in1.

    I imagine it's from where people use Notepad, and that has added the .txt extension on rather than the op intentionally saving it as a .txt.

    Yeah, I had to read another tutorial to find out that I was supposed to change the extension to .config via cmd.

    When you're saving it from notepad, put the name (including extensions) in quotes to prevent it from appending .txt to the end.

    Or go into the windows folder options and UNcheck "hide extensions for known types" so you can just view/modify actual extensions yourself.

    Or you could just change the save type from "Text Documents (*.txt)" to "All Files (*.*)" in the drop down box below the filename.

    It's what the drop down box is there for....
