Ok guys first of all I am sorry if this is the wrong thread for this. I have spent almost 3 hours trying to figure this out and I just can't. I have a Gateway on SysNand 4.2 on the latest EmuNand and I play the .3ds MH4U (the US version). I am trying to extract my save to eshop format, decrypt it-and modify it (which I have done), and then inject it back in .3ds format. I am using a guide I found here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutoria...v-to-eshop-3ds-3dz-with-savedatafiler.380246/
It just DOESN'T work!!! I don't know if this game in particular has a problem, cause I never had trouble using it in the past for other games. I have the 1.1 update installed as well... When I start the game I am in the previous state (no modifications are made) although I am sure the eshop save file is modified. Has anyone faced this issue before? Does another save extracting/injecting homebrew work better? Just a comment, my CTR Card doesn't show as "broken" as all the other games do normally. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance!

That does make sense. If you don't find an answer here or where I linked to earlier,, this section (https://gbatemp.net/forums/3ds-rom-hacking-translations-and-utilities.276/) might help too. That section contains different save editors for multiple games.

Good luck with what you are trying to do. :)
Thanks for your reply! I actually figured this out, it was a Gateway 3.6.1 bug it seems injecting saves with savedatafiler doesn't work with it, it works perfectly with 3.6.0 though! However I don't know where should I post for this Gateway bug so that others will know and don't lose as much time as I did figuring this out!

I think the best place to post it to let others know is in the first link I gave you. There's a thread there for the 3.6.1 Beta, where you might want to do it.

    Huh, makes sense; they did sell that through the 3D All-Stars collection.

    Which, last I heard was removed from the eShop...so they might as well offer it again, I guess...

    Will they use the same Shindou-translated ROM, or the original English ROM?

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    googling it, it seems that mario 64 is on the service

    in japan they use the shindou version apparently but in the states and elsewhere they use the original rom

    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing

    honestly the whole expansion pack confuses me since i thought the nes/snes games were just a neat little bonus
