    Does Powersaves work with Gateway 3DS?


    I can't actually seem to find much on this in English. Care to elaborate? Where I get it from and how to set it up?

    No powersaves.
    For savefl you'll have to find it yourself. Basically it's a tool that dumps save from a gamecard or an installed title. There's a bug that prevents it from working with GW card so you'll have install the title.

    All save files are encrypted. Savedatafiler is a dev tool that decrypts them and gives you the core files in a folder called "filer" on the SD card. One of these will contain game data (the others are mainly used for encryption process as I understand) and from there it's just a matter of using a hex editor and experimenting. After that , you can import the files back.

    Be warned that some games have checks for modified files and can corrupt your save. Had this happen to me with SSB actually. It told me my save was a different date then what it should be.
