    Hurm, crap. And here I was thinking I would play this on my Flashcart then move my save over to my Retail cart when ever I wanted to use the Pokewalker, well shit.

    That thought had crossed my mind too, but it's too much of a PITA to solder & desolder every day just to sync with the pokewalker. Plus every time you do that, there's the risk of making a mistake and killing it.

    So for now, I'm just playing on the original cartridge. I might still give in and get that NDS Adaptor Plus since it works without soldering. Either that, or revisit the switch idea... if I can find a small enough surface-mount switch that I can fit it inside the cartridge, then that would do the trick.

    I've backed up my save with no problems at all. But when I go to restore my save it wont restore anything, and I have tried all 3 file types, unfortunately selecting type 2 deleted the save off my cartridge (which really pissed me off). But I think I may know why it cant restore properly. When you select GAME CART INFO with HG/SS and look at EXTENDED DATA the 2 bytes after c00 pretty much random, the 2 bytes after c03 switch from 00 and ff, the ones after c05 are usually 00 or 1F, and the ones after c9F are generally random. If that is the problem is it possible to read the extended data first then write the save correctly

    Pretty sure the implemention of save backup/restore in PokesavDS is still experimental, and not guaranteed to work.

    Well I hope it gets finalized soon, because the only thing holding me back from soldering the eeprom to pin 4 is not wanting to break the seal on the cartridge

    I should of mentioned that restoring doesn't work at all yet (I thought I had). I am however surprised that attempting to restore did anything at all.

    Will we ever be able to restore it (without the NDS Adapter)?

    Probably, maybe, eventually. I cannot say how or when though. I have gone to considerable lengths to try and get it working. I have a few more tricks I can try so hopefully those will pan out otherwise I am about out of ideas.

    Well fortunately I was only 2 hours into the game. I was able to use Pokesav and NitroHax to get my Quilava, Pidgey, and Wooper back into my save.

    tried Chase-san's savehax... it dumped the file (apparently), but then it wouldn't load with the rom i tried. Any suggestions?

    Ok, I've tried several more times, and can't seem to get it to work at all. I tried looking at the save through a hex editor, it looked fine, but when I went to load it, it wanted to start a new game. I have gotten a mix of files: Scrambled stuff, all 00000000 (in hex) and then also a bunch of FFFFFFFF, and some random EFs or 7Fs spread around too. Dunno what to do, but it'd be awesome if I could get this to work [​IMG]

    Any update on transferring saves through software? I'm tempted to buy a NDS Adapter Plus or something [​IMG] desperate to bring my Pokewalker to uni.

    I'm cool like that.
