    You mean a savegame you downloaded from the Internet? The most straightforward way would be to start a new game, save, and then look at the SD card to see what file the save data is stored in. If the file is the same size as what you downloaded from the Internet, then just replace the file with what you downloaded. If the file is a different size, then they're probably in different formats and you'll have to figure out how to convert the one you downloaded.

    DSTWO uses standard raw saves like most flashcarts and emulators, name the save the same as your ROM but with the .sav extension and see if it works.

    What are you talking about..? Where is your Mario Hoops ROM if it's not on your SD card? (Do you mean you have a MicroSD card in it? Because that's what I mean by "SD card".)

    Have you renamed the save game to the same as the game? I.e. if the rom is named MARIOHOOPS.NDS, the save should be MARIOHOOPS.SAV.

    As far as i'm aware you need same name for rom and save file in same folder.

    SD card root/
    Roms/

    Mario.nds
    Mario.sav


    Did i missed something?

    Mario slam basketball?

    why do you must use Eu version if it's easier to find USA saves?

    Did you try downloading (USA) save file "Mario Hoops 3on3 (USA).sav"
    but renaming the ROM file from "Mario Slam Basketball (EUR).nds" to
    "Mario Hoops 3on3 (USA).nds"?

    So you would have in your ROMs folder:
    "Mario Hoops 3on3 (USA).nds" (renamed from: "Mario Slam Basketball (EUR).nds")
    "Mario Hoops 3on3 (USA).sav" (downloaded as is)

    As for how,
    you just connect a SD card from SDTWO to a PC, open a folder where the rom is located and rename it to name of downloaded save file, for example: "Mario Hoops 3on3 (USA).sav" as i said above ^

    As to where to download it,
    well you can find it using google... but if you cant, ill try to find one for you.

    I'm not 100% sure this will work, i'm testing it as we speak, but i don't see why it wouldn't work.

    It is entirely possible that the save data for the EU version differs in some subtle way from the US version, such that save data for the US version will only work with the US version. In that case trying to convert the US save data to work the the EU version would likely require at least a little tedious reverse-engineering.

    I tested what i told you. I just renamed a EUR rom and used USA save and it worked. Apparently saves are not region locked.

    Ill try to find you some 100% save files from mario hoop 3on3, but you need to rename the rom same as the save file.
