Is there any ways to swap save files between two Pokemon games?

    In early days swapping save files between Pokemon games are very easy(like Diamond & Pearl, Black and White).

    However, I don't find out a way to inject my Omega Ruby save file into Alpha Sapphire.
    Savefiler will report an error when you are trying to inject a renamed (000011C4 to 000011C5) save file.
    The game reports a save corrupt if you directly use a Card 2 save injector.

    So there's no way to swap the save file at all?

    It's super easy.

    With savedatafiler, extract your save from both games.

    Go in the filer folder from your SD card, then in the folder from your Ruby save, copy the ruby "main" file and replace it into the Alpha Sapphire save folder.

    Then import with SDF your alpha sapphire save, just like you normally would (but it will be the Main save file from ruby).

    Et voilĂ  ;) That's how i was able to unlock both the 12th and 13rd online music battles on the same game ;)

    Solved. Thanks. If you met the problem "The saved data is not compatible with this version, so it can't be used."
    Go to savedatafiler and delete the secure value (R+X) , inject save file again and it will work.

    Why use Savedatafiler? I recommend Jk's SaveManager. What it has above Savedatafiler is that it's open source, still being updated, and it has more features such as automatically deleting secure values and mass backing up games so you don't have to go through one by one.

    Thanks about the tip ! Didn't know about JK's savemanager, I just tried it, it is really really nice ! A lot more convenient than sdf ;)

    sdf export folder contains the export and import info. times, titleid, etc. to swap the file, you should replace the main file, not the folder.

    JKSM is also a good option, it doesn't need any log file

    I don't suggest swap the save profile, if you do swap the files, please do edit the event
