    Save Finder 3.2
    by Actar

    [​IMG]

    Written entirely by me with Code:: Blocks 10.05

    I created this (ugly but functional) program that allows you to:
    • Know which folder is written in the emuNAND for a certain SaveGame
    • Prepare what you need for install (with SaveGameManager) in the realNAND the save of the emuNAND .
    • Delete saveGame from emuNAND
    You must have the file titles.txt (which goes in the same folder of the program).. but Save Finder will start the download for you if you haven't this file.



    DOWNLOAD
    http://www.mediafire...5dpm6i4r0vq5tgf


    HOW TO USE
    The use of this program is really simple and understand, the few information that you need, can be found within the same program.
    Take a look aslo in the Option Menù.


    IMPORTANT
    ● This program is still under development.. there may be some bugs (but I don't know were =P ).
    But i think (and I hope) taht this will be a final and stable version.
    ● It makes sense to use the export function, only if you use the R116 GX of SaveGame Manager for import the data.
    Of course you can export the savegames of emuNAND ... and import them into realNAND with Save Game Mnager GX.. only if that game is already played.


    FEEDEBACK
    If you have any problem or suggestions (also for my typo error) please tell me.... possibly using an easy English :lol:
    ps: don't ask me to make a GUI, actualy I'm not able do to it. :(

    Thanks for that program.

    Is there a requirement?
    Like you need to place the program at the Root of the EmuNand folder?

    Or root of SD card?
    I'll check if there's a readme.txt :P
    Edit: There's no readme :(
    Could you write a short help on your first post?


    It's a great apps to extract saves fromm NandEmu into a SavegameManagerGX compatible format in order to re-insert it into real Nand :)


    @Kylster:
    Yes, It seems it's doing the same job as NAND gamesave restore.

    I didn't try them yet.


    Edit2:
    Suggestion for better english menus:

    meh.. readme... GOOD IDEA :D

    The program can be started from every where.

    The program will ask the dirve (both for nand and savegamemanager )

    @Cyan
    Suggestion for better english menus:

    Ok, i just write it. =)


    Obviously il'll looks to correct other things before making a new release.

    (make a readme it's not easy for me... I take more time for translate that for code :lol: )

    Ant the program is very easy to use.
    But i'll look for that.

    I didn't know Nand game save manager.
    It's like a mini ShowMiiNand, thanks :)


    @Actar:
    I don't understand the first menu :(
    I think it's to create a new (emtpy) folder in the emuNand for a new game?

    Oh, ok, it's just giving the path for the given GameID.


    PS: I edited the suggestion, as I think I was wrong.


    It's easy to use for you, because you know what the menu are doing.
    I'm trying all menu to see how it's working.

    You ask the user to write the ID of the game to extract.
    But maybe you could list all games in the program (check existing ID and compare with titles.txt), then let the user choose the game to extract by selecting the numbler or letter.
    Currently the user has to open titles.txt at the same time?

    example
    List of found Wii (or VC or WiiWare) games on your EmuNand:
    a Super mario
    b Zelda
    c Wii sport
    Type the letter for the game to extract :

    And make a different list for Wii, VC, WiiWare
    Ask the user which list he want to see.
    Sorry to give you more work :shy:

    The first menù is only for know the folder of a saveGame in the emuNAND.

    probably is better than mine. ;)
    I had never seen that program, thanks.

    yes, I entered a random gameID (even not on EmuNAND) and it gave me the path.

    But it's wrong.
    You are giving always /00010000/gameID/

    But for example, Mario kart is in /00010004/gameID/ (all games with channels, Mario kart, Wiifit, Rabbids, etc.)

    Wiiware and VC should be in /00010008/ (I'm not sure, I'll have to check that).


    I edited again the English menu suggestion.

    I've been using this app (NGSM) for so long and it's really great!

    @OP keep the good work! Follow Cyan's advise.

    You could add another menu :
    instead of the user giving the GameID : JAFP -> program tells 'title\00010000\4a414650'

    User could write : 4a414650 -> program tell "it's JAFP - Sim City"



    There are rules for type of games Path name (00010000, 00010004, 00010008 etc.)
    Sorry, I don't remember all the path correctly.
    You could find them by searching a little, it shouldn't be hard.

    "You could add another menu :

    I'm stil working for a new good/final release.

    Bug are all fixed and I'm going to add some things.
    I upload now the last working release (2.2 at the moment). ;)

    Next step:
    - download titles.txt direct from program
    - create a log file

    at the end, when I'm sure that all is ok, i'll try to make a guide in my spastic english. :lol:

    EDIT: ok, 2.3 is ready.. now is possibily to download "titles.txt" direct from program

    I changed so much thing and optimized the code.
    There was some fu*k*ng pointer non corrected intilializaded.

    Now i'mg going to add an option menù for configure the program:
    now SaveFinder look always for wiigames, wiiware and VC.

    In the option menù you will tell him what you want to "use"

    Hey I like the ideas; I just have this old 7.8Gb nand that has some WW/VC saves I need to copy over cause it doesn't want to work with neek anymore Lol and this is definitely a lifesaver. On that note I will say thanks.
    P.S
