    Could someone school me on how to organize my saved game files? When I look at what's on my microSD, the saved files from each game is right next to the game file itself. This causes lots of clutter. So I was wondering if it was possible for me to be able to save games to a seperate folder if I make one. Is this possible? If it is, would the game have any trouble finding it when I attempt a load-up of that file?

    First, what cart do you have?

    Second, it's generally not possible to relocate the saves and have the flashcart still detect it.

    Why have tons of folders?
    It'll be a waste of time to navigate through the flashcart and computer.

    I used to just dump all the roms in the Games folder then sort them by the filename.
    Filename would be [XXXX] - Name of game here.nds
    Then I had this batch file which would back up the saves.

    It drives me up the wall when people use crap filenames like mariokart.nds, PATCHED POKEMON BLACK.nds, lookatthisfilenameisn'titlong.nds

    I like to keep things organised. Plus it allows me to navigate through the card on my PC without having 3+ files per game (.nds .sav .cc).

    edit: I also hate names like that [​IMG] I always change the name after downloading. M4RI0_K4RT_D5_PATCHED_[insert name here]_DONWlOADEDFROM_[insert ROM site here]_WORKING.nd5

    Me too, when I get a rom I always rename it to it's appropriate name or its series name and then the number of its place in the series.
