    Have you tried installing multiple times, or did that only happen once? I ask because I tried to install a cia file the other day and the first time it gave me an error, but jut for the heck of it I tried a second time and it installed fine.

    Sounds like you may have downloaded a bad cia file. When I installed SaveDataFiler I had to try like 4 different copies from different people before I got one to install right and work correctly.

    OK, that's what I thought. "CIA is invalid means that your file is messed up. Give me a bit and I'll see if I can find the CIA file I used and send it to you to try.

    it's not bad/messed up, it's just encrypted/straight from the sdk. it needs to be repacked for us to easily use it. you can do it yourself but just keep looking for a ready made one :)

    Google "3ds to cia converter" and click the first link, it should be on Maxconsole. There's a link at the bottom of the first post in that thread that says "3DS To CIA Converter v3.6.rar". While a 3DS to CIA converter wouldn't be very helpful in your situation, that archive also contains working CIA files for SaveDataFiler and Play Coin Setter in one of the folders. I had the exact same problem you described, and that version worked for me.

    Ah, my bad.




    So you got it installed? Good to know.

    To extract the save file from a .3DZ game, go to your emunand and do this:
    1) press select to pull up your Gateway game list and choose Pokemon OR/AS. (You don't need to start the game, just make sure it's selected.
    2) Start SaveDataFiler. The very first thing that the menu gives as an option should say "CTR Card".
    3) With "CTR Card" selected, click the Y button to "Export this user save data to SD Card."
    4) Click "Export (A)"
    5) wait for it to complete, then click "OK (A)"
    6) turn off the 3DS for now and put the SD card (the big one, not the microSD one that's in the Gateway)
    7) make a backup of the folder titled "filer" on your SD card in case something goes wrong

    To edit it, you need a program called PkHex from http://projectpokemon.org/forums/showthread.php?36986-PKHeX-(Gen-6-SAV-PKX-Editor). Download and extract the zip file on the first post. Then:
    1) open PkHex.exe
    2) click through the menus like this "File"->"Open..."->find your SD card->"filer"->"UserSaveData"->
    Since you haven't used SaveDataFiler before, there should be only one folder in here with a name like "20150111224438" or something like that. That shows the time the backup was made. Otherwise, just look for the newest one and open it.->"000011c4" (I think, but I'm not sure. there should only be one folder here anyways so just open it.)->"main"->"Open"
    3) make whatever changes you want and save the file (SAV->Export SAV->Save and say "yes" when it asks to replace it)
    4) close PkHex and put your SD card back in the 3DS.

    Now to put the hacked save back in the game:
    1) Get back to EmuNAND.
    2) Set your Gateway card to Pokemon OR/AS
    3) open SaveDataFiler and click the tab titled "SD"
    4) find the save you just edited and press "A" twice to import it back in, click OK when done.
    5) Open your game and enjoy!

    Sorry about putting it into so many steps. It isn't hard, I just wanted to make sure I didn't leave anything out.

    How can I extract my savegame from an installed game (so, no cartridge) with SaveDateFiller? How do I know which file is, for example, Smash Bros game?
