    You didn't give any information to work off, there's no need to do "this?!". Information would be nice

    ok. So, I used This software to get a pokemon diamond forwarder, and all of my .nds/.sav files are in one folder. I used the tool you suggested to put in the path (sd/NDS roms/) and the file link (sd/NDS roms/diamond.sav), but when I put in the new config.json, both screens say "homebrew" in white text on a black screen, like it would normally load up, then it just crashes to the home menu.

    EDIT: I do not have a flashcart, before you ask. My nds roms are all on my sd card.

    That still isn't enough information. Show me the contents of the config.bin.

    [​IMG] the top box is the unedited backup, the lower one is the edited backup. Also, there are many many files in the nds roms folder

    EDIT: my theory is that maybe the filename is too long?

    The image is broken, and no, that isn't how it works. The filename being too long won't break it. For folder, where is it pointing?

    I realize what was broken, and that was because I linked to the individual images. Here is the link, and the folder is pointing to root/NDS roms, and the file is named root/NDS roms/1015 - Pokemon Diamond (v05) (U)(Legacy).sav

    There's your problem. You're supposed to point to PKSM save backups folder for your game.

    Thank you, but I can't back up the game due to the forwarding software (whick uses ndsbootstrap i think), is there any way to counteract this? I do not have a flashcart, not sure if that would help.

    You can.. the whole point is to use nds-bootstrap with it.

    Because there isn't a method to back it up with Checkpoint. Why would you even do that because PKSM can read it by itself? It autobackups saves too..

    I told you why. You set your config up wrong

    You put your folder as the rom folder. It should point to the PKSM backup save folder.

    It does that automstically if you set it up correctly.
