    Hey my lovely friends i have a question ,

    I have played a lots of games on my n3ds with a sky3ds. Now i'm playing on emunand with only .cia games. So here is my question : i have imported all my saves from my sky3ds (.sav files) and i want to put my sav on my cia games.
    For exemple : i play 100hours on pokemon X with my sky3ds and i have a sav called pokemon.sav and i want to put my sav on my pokemon installed on my emunand.

    How do i do it ? Do i need ctr save datafiler ? Do i need to convert ?


    Thanks you all of you <3

    I think the easiest method is to put it back on the Sky3DS, and use something like Save Data Transfer Tool, svdt, SaveDataFiler, etc... and then it will be in your .cia versions

    if you have Pokémon X installed to your system, and you choose Pokémon X on your Sky3DS, then you should be able to transfer them over easily

    Hello! ^_^ I can confirm that Nintendo's stock Save Transfer tool from the eShop works for transferring Sky3DS saves to installed CIA games without flaw. As an added bonus, if you have your save backed up, you can effectively CLONE your save game by loading it on your Sky, use Save Data transfer, then restore the save back to the Sky from your backup. Works for Power Saves backups, as well (of course, you can't use Sky with powersaves)
