    i know there is already sdm and svdt but what im requesting is a save manger that has some thing like this for each game to use on it slot 1 slot 2 slot 3 slot 4 etc so you can import or restore any saves into those slots for quick and easy save swapping because im playing romhacks and i want to quickly swap my save back and forth when i want my old save back. i know theirs a request thread i posted this in there a while ago and people just ignored it.

    So, you're asking for a save manager that uses save slots? Kinda confused by what you mean.

    well i mean is you can backup a save to each save slot and restore for quick save the save manger i want would have slot 1 all the way up to 100 or some thing for each game and you could backup your game save to any of those slots then select the slot that has the save you want then you import thats what i mean

    Basically "Save Backup" feature but it works on secure-valued games?

    No, he mean like you can switch dynamically between save files, like you have multiple folders on sd card, and each of them will contain specific save data from a game. And you can play your game normally, backup it to slot 1 (a folder is sd card), start a new game, and every time you want to return and play previous saves you can just backup your current save to slot 2 (or any empty slot) and inject save data on slot 1.

    I modified mine to add it. I have a few things to finish and add. It uses the game's product code right now, because I never thought I'd bother releasing it. Maybe I'll upload it tomorrow.

    Hey guys. I didn't make it yesterday. Got a lot of stuff going on right now. Here it is. You have to hold R at boot for it to not skip opening the RomFS. It exports saves to "sd:/Saves/[GameCode]/[SlotNo]". I don't think it's that hard to figure out other than that. I'll try to help out as much as I can with questions, but I'm not able to stay on my computer too long right now.

    Better than anything I would've made. Also, just so everyone knows, I don't know what I'll add to this in the future. It's one of those "I'm bored, let's see what I can make this do" kind of things I do.

    I finally had more than a half hour to sit down and play with it. Adding support for actual titles now. Gotta redo a few things here and there first though.

    Thanks. Give it a day or two and it'll be using titles instead of product codes. I wanna finish some other stuff on it.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I don't know. I don't own it. Chances are, if svdt or save_manager can't, this won't be able to either.

    @JK_ , I suppose the "Update Save" from your screenshots is related to the "Secure Values"?
    And if not, there's some way to implement this feature on your app? At least for most-used games, such as Pokémon, Smash Bros, Mario Kart, etc.

    Anyways, I'm looking forward into your Save Manager.

    And I agree, you should make our own thread. Your app needs more exposure :)
