    NDS SAVES to SLOT-2 v1.0


    NOTE: THIS SOFTWARE CAN DAMAGE YOUR NDS SAVEGAMES. USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    NDS SAVES to SLOT-2 can make valid backups of Nintendo DS games' savedata and it can also restore them.

    Features:
    * backups/restores savedata from almost all Nintendo DS games
    * compatible with Pokémon HG/SS and Pokémon B/W
    * this tool doesn't require Wi-Fi, FTP nor 3-in-1 expansions
    * it only runs from SLOT-2 flashcards (previously DLDI patched)
    * new feature in v1.0: supports multiple files


    This tool only works when ran from SLOT-2 flashcards, it's based on what Pokedoc released some months ago.

    However, his method needs Wi-Fi+FTP or a 3-in-1 expansion. My application (which is mostly based on his code) uses old SLOT-2 flashcards to achieve the same as Pokedoc: make backups of Pokémon HG/SS/B/W savegames.
    So if you still keep your old SLOT-2 flashcards and want to backup/restore savegames from retail Pokémon HG/SS/B/W carts, this is your solution [​IMG]

    Remember that you must patch the .nds file using the correct DLDI for your device.

    I think this should belong in the Homebrew section.

    Can you upload Pokedoc's version? I have a 3-in-1 and Project Pokemon seems dead right now. Sorry to ask here, but this thread is probably the most likely place to get an answer.

    EDIT: Project Pokemon is back. Ignore me.

    Edit: I have a problem using it with supercard mini sd. I get FAT error. How can I fix this??

    I finally built the final 1.0 version.

    It has a simple file browser to support multiple files. And now saves are stored in \NDS_Saves\.

    I'm Trying to get this to work with an Ez-Flash IV to backup Pokemon Black, it hangs at the initializing FAT line...
