    What?

    Just... save? The only game that requires special steps to exit normally is Smash Bros.

    no, just save normally and when you are done, either leave the game via Home button --> Exit or shut down your 3DS normally with the... yeah you figured power button
    only problem is, when you just close the 3DS, still have the game running and it runs out of battery, THEN it won't save
    you have to either leave the game or shut down the 3DS, if it shuts down due to no battery, then it doesn't write the save to the SD card

    Also if your game happens to hang or crash then you lose your progress since last play session. Pokemon, Animal Crossing, and a few other titles do NOT need graceful exit and they save instantly.

    Not quite wrong, it was like that a few versions ago. You had to press home and exit else the games wouldn't save. It was fixed though to "real-time saving".

    Well, you get kicked out of EmuNAND if you just close the game. To exit Smash Bros. without leaving EmuNAND you have to open another application (such as the camera app) to close it, then exit that app.

    I'm not sure if 2.5 fixed this at it was just released today.
