    Will really appreciate if anyone can help me with these: [​IMG]

    1. Is there a complete skinning guide for the M3 DS Real?
    2. How can I convert my R4 saves to M3 DS Real saves? Is there a simple way rather than using that save converter webpage?
    3. Can i use the Cheat.dat or usrcheat.dat from the R4?
    4. Can i delete the other applications like the PDADS since it takes up too much space?

    Again, thanks to anyone who can answer these questions.. [​IMG]

    2. Rename the save file from 'game name.sav' to 'game name.0' (that's a zero).

    1)Yes the guide is included in the Manual
    2)You can use our save converter (http://www.handheldsources.com/M3DS/Download_M3DSR.html)
    3)You may want to look into our M3 Cheat Code Combiner
    4)You can choose what or which apps to run on your M3 Real.

    Hope this helps a little. [​IMG]

    1. A very brief skinning guide can be found on gba-nds (or something; the "official" support site for the M3/G6 R) in their M3DSR Tutorial.

    2. You can use some kind of mass renaming software to change the file extension to .0 (or .1/.2 if necessary). They both use the same file type and size, but the M3/G6 use numbers for their multi-save system.

    3. Not sure about this one [​IMG] But I'm sure the codes can be exchanged/added from each manually.

    4. PDADS is completely optional, but OSW has found out that PDADS is actually filled with empty space (around 80% of the total size)

    3. have a look for yasu's r4cce (link to SkH's translated version), it can export the cheat.dat's from R4 to an xml, and you can then use M3's cheat code combiner to make a M3 db out of it. Just a warning, I have had my card go corrupt 3 times now just messing with cheats in the M3R menu (something to do with a small file that is created and written "game name.gmc" when changing some cheat file source settings) so make sure you keep a copy of your saves and stuff.
