    I have been out of the "scene" for a while now, but recently poured a lot of time into soul silver and am considering getting a retail cart of it. However, I would like to continue the save I have on my flashcart. I remember being able to inject saves into games "back in the day" but I don't remember the name of the hombrew that allowed one to do this, and how the process works. Help?

    It's possible. It would require either the NDS adapter, preferably the Plus version as it supports pokemon HG/SS, or the NDS backup tool, which doesn't support some new games, as it hasn't been updated in a while.

    It does exist, yes.

    EDIT - Sorry, I don't know if this supports soul silver or not. Turns out thats a tricky one, sorry [​IMG]

    What you're looking for is a program called 'savsender' (available on filetrip).

    You'll also need a windows (or *nix) utility called nc.exe (or just nc, for netcat, on unix). This host's the .sav on your PC.

    There are some instructions on this page ( http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=218138 ) though I can't find the original tutorial I used anymore. You'll need to use a DS or DSL, since I'm pretty sure the tools don't work right on DSi/XL.

    I've done it a bunch of times, easy as, let me know if this helps.

    I'm using a DSL and a slot 1 easy flash V, but it seems that Soul Silver uses a newer save type that the older programs don't support. Would Savesender still do the deed?

    Doesn't work with HG/SS.

    You'll need to buy the "backup adapter plus".

    EDIT: To clarify, it's a PHYSICAL difference because of the IR port's controller chip being on the normal pin.
