    I'm trying to edit the save data for one of my digital games but I can't find it's save file ! the game doesn't pop up in checkpoint and it can't be backed up in the system settings :( I've been playing this game for hours and I've saved it plenty of times. is there any other way i can find its save data ?

    Is the game a DSiWare or GBA VC title? Maybe the game makes its save as extdata.

    You may need to refresh checkpoint by holding B.

    yes but it says my 3ds doesnt support it or something ?


    it's a 3ds game, fantasy life, i downloaded the game from a website as a cia file so maybe something went wrong with the save data because of that ? but other games i've downloaded that way had save data files ?? so idk what to do from there D:

    If I'm not mistaken, Fantasy Life uses "extdata" and not "save data". JKSM definitely makes that distinction; I'm not sure about Checkpoint.

    Did you download the CIA version of JKSM?

    i'm not sure, i just followed the cfw guide >.< i can't run jksm with rosalina, it says "this homebrew exploit does not have support for launching applications under target titles. Please use a different exploit."

    it probably depends on the name or extension. some games on any system use different .bin files for saves, each referring to a specific slot.

    one thing I might add is that systems have what they call common files and common folders. this is how the system communicates with a game or even with itself. the save may be one of these or it may be unique, but you can bet that a file or the folder itself designates it as a save. I know like gpd, default.xex. default.xbe, etc for xbox and eboot.bin, param.sfo, prx, etc. for playstation, but I'm not too familiar with nintendo's namings other than .app, h3, tmd, tik. etc. saves have been unique on the wii u as I've been researching it but the folder itself is a common folder in usb/usr/save iirc.

    you can probably tell what's common if you compare files and folders of saves from different games. the content id tells you if something is dlc, update, game, and probably save. I know saves were named after the game's id on the wii u. the ps4 has different save names, but the common folder there is pfs and scesys.

    That happens if you have jksm.xml in the same folder as jksm.3dsx. There is no reason you should have jksm.xml on your system, as per https://github.com/J-D-K/JKSM/releases .

    Isn't this in the documentation for your save editor? (Are you using someone else's editor? Or are you just hoping to figure out how to edit them yourself? Because that's not going to be easy.)

    There's already a save editor I've found that I've been meaning to use (:
