    I don't think .duc files can be read by dstwo.
    You need to convert them in .sav format in order to work on dstwo.

    oh dtc, yes they are created on dstwo... but sav is where save game is, they are the one important. Did you get what you wanted by the way?

    That's the completely wrong way of going about it. Rename the save to match the ROM, not the other way around. Why mislabel the game as USA when it's EUR? The filename doesn't matter to the DS, all that matters is that the two are named the same and the save is in raw format.
    I may be wrong but I think .dtc is a real time save, which is loaded using the in game DSTWO menu. Definitely will only work on the same region and version of the game though.

    Rename it the same as the ROM (and use the same region ROM) but keeping the .dtc extension, open the ingame menu (L+R+Start but make sure game patching is on and clean mode is off) and see if you're able to load it.
    Or use a .sav save you can find, which should work with any region.

    Then use the USA game. Is it that hard?
    I always go for U releases on DS, as they're often smaller (E has more languages...)

    The point was that it doesnt matter what region the save is, it will work on any game version.
    For example, if you have usa save you can use european game and it will work, and as for naming its not work cause i just did it and it works. And another point was that it doesnt matter how you name the files as long as they are named exactly the same .sav and .nds

    Basically you said all that i said in more precise way. Thank you.

    Just make sure .sav file you downloaded and .nds file are the same name. That's it?

    He doesn't need to use different region game, it's all the same.


    I sent you the link earlier of the save game. I tested it and am using it as we speak.
    Here ill send you again.

    OK, so... IF you DON'T know how to do this, than lets go step by step.
    First step, download the Mario hoops save file from the link below, and when you have it on your desktop reply to me here and we can go to step 2. Ok?


    Here's the link of the game save file:

    If he is using a .dtc RTS save, they need to be the same region. Otherwise it shouldn't matter, but he clearly can't get it working, so I'm not sure what to suggest, maybe he will have more luck with the .dtc save.
    Oh, one thing, do you have displaying extensions for known file types enabled in Windows? Otherwise, you might inadvertently be naming the save .sav.sav which wouldn't work. Send a screenshot of the folder with the renamed save and ROM if you're unsure, so we can make sure they're named correctly.

    Step 1: Download the GAME SAVE FILE in .duc format

    [​IMG]



    _____________________________________________________________________________________
    Step 2: Convert it with THE CONVERTER from .duc to .sav
    (make the same settings as you see in the picture below)
    [​IMG]



    ____________________________________________________________________________________
    Step 3: Place your newly converted file (.sav) on to DStwo microSD card, inside a folder where all your games are.



    ______________________________________________________________________________________
    Step 4: Rename the save file you JUST copied over to your games folder, so that it has the EXACTLY THE SAME NAME as your Mario basketball game is called (whatever that is). Just the name, not extension .sav or .nds.
    (see the picture below)

    [​IMG]

    NOTE: The most important part to know is that the name it self doesn't matter, what's important is that both .sav and .nds files have exactly the same NAME, like in the picture example above!

    So for example you will have two files:
    Mario Kart.nds (the game file)
    Mario Krt.sav (the save file)
    Notice that these two has EXACTLY THE SAME NAMES except .nds and .sav



    ___________________________________________________________________________
    Step 5: Play the game!

    Ideally you will only need two of those files. You have the ROM ('mariohoops 3on3.nds' in your first picture) and a save file with the same name but extension .sav.

    If that save file doesn't work or isn't at the right point in the game, you could try the other .sav files - delete the 'mariohoops 3on3.sav' file from your flashcart's microSD card and copy one of the other .sav files in its place, renaming that file to 'mariohoops 3on3.sav'.

    You don't need the .dtc file - https://gbatemp.net/threads/whats-this-file-type.292415/ says it is the settings file the DSTwo creates to record whether you have cheats turned on &c.

    I haven't personally come across .duc saves as I haven't used an Action Replay Max DS, but as @MetoMeto says above, you can convert it to the .sav format the DSTwo wants, if none of the .sav ones you downloaded are satisfactory.
