    Hey guys,

    I've been using the M3 Real firmware for a few months now after getting it and I love it. Recently though I heard there was an unofficial English version of Sakura and I just had to try it. Installed it on my Real card and everything works perfectly. One thing I'm wondering of though are the .cht and .opt files in my NDS folder.

    When I read an article on Sakura a while back it said the only game file changes were going to be the new .sav files, so it comes as a surprise to find two new extensions outta' the blue. Not a real cause for concern but I'm curious as to what these files do. Any enlightenment would be appreciated, thanks!

    I'm sure the .cht files are the cheat settings for the game, and the .opt file is the Save Restore information.

    The cheat setting file is understandable, but what's this about a save restore now? I must have missed something somewhere about this particular function, mind indulging me a bit more? [​IMG]

    i think .opt files tell m3sakura if it should enable soft-reset(unavailable) slowmotion and download-play compatibility mode

    As far as I know, Sakura makes a record of what's changed since you last booted the game up (and the 4 times before it), so you can instantly skip back to a previous save if any thing goes wrong.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    @strata8: You are indeed correct.

    @Domo: Check the M3 Sakura FAQ and search for "Save File Restore"
