    More coming soon!

    THANX R4i TEAM!!!

    Preliminary compatibility list:

    PASS
    Zelda: Spirit Tracks
    Might and Magic Clash of Heroes
    Pokemon Platinum
    Dragon Quest IX
    Pokemon SoulSilver

    FAIL
    NONE TESTED

    I don't have the means to test odd games like WarioWare DIY, but I hope this will suffice for now.


    EDIT: It appears that after emailing the R4i team about the Pokemon issue, they have released both a firmware update and an app update to fix the issue! I have tested and confirmed the fix, and the list has been updated.

    Doesn't support IR games?
    That's a kinda important feature down the drain right there, considering most users would want to backup their Pokémon save files so that they could edit it with PokéGen or PMGE.

    I know, right? I have already emailed the R4i team about it, including the info that the IR switcher can be controlled by software.


    Actually, that list is just a list of saves that people uploaded (not necessarily from the SaveDongle), and the save "Works/Doesn't Work" just checks to see if the save is corrupt. Also, people could have soldered their Hg/Ss/B/W carts to use with the SaveDongle, but avid fans won't risk that.
