    Yes, and it's not just ROMs on the flashcard. It's ROMs on the console's SD card as well.

    I know this is somewhat off topic, but id really like to try to fix this>

    So I had a reggular 3DS XL and upgraded to a New 3DS XL and got eveything working well. I made a forwarder that is working but the only thing is that My save for pokemon black is not working.
    I can open and play the save on my old console, but if i copy it to my new one it starts without a save, i can start a new game and have it work and save and load but then i tried copying my old save again and still no go. Do you have any idea why that might be?

    Move your save file to a folder called "saves", which should be made in the same folder as your ROM.

    So that worked for me, but I must be missing something then.
    so for another game (heart gold) the .sav is in the same directory as the .nds but now for black 2 (and only on the new 3ds) it needs to be in the /saves directory.
    why did this change or what did i do different?

    All .sav files should be in "saves".
    If HeartGold is still reading outside of that folder, then remake your HG forwarder with the forwarder template updated.

    I'm getting a top black screen and a bottom white screen, I reforwarded it with a smaller name and it still does this (I'm using an SD card)

    What OS are you using on your PC?

    Did you have any luck? Just as you, I even renamed my game SS.nds and I'm getting the same results. Forwarder is on C: root just like said on the FAQ, is this a Forwarder version problem or are we being really dumb on some of the steps?

    Was "Automatically set ROM path" set?
    If so, did you drag your ROMs to Forwarder3-DS from the SD card or the PC?

    Try remaking your forwarders, but drag the ROMs from the SD card, not the PC.

    Yes, though if you haven't remade your forwarder with the new template yet, then please do.

    Yes. Use a tool called Checkpoint.

    It's an AP issue. The ROM needs to be AP-patched.
    Use DS-Scene ROM Tool to patch it.
