    I recently acquired an R4 and am now going through the process of learning it's ins and outs.

    Currently, every time I launch homebrew, I get prompted to create/ignore the creation of a save file.

    Is there any way to permanently disable the creation of save files for Homebrew?

    I bet making a new file and naming it nameofhomebrew.sav would do the trick, it would save space and time

    I'm pretty sure that would just give an error when the .nds tries to launch. Could be wrong though.

    Eh, this should be posted in the official R4 forums since it seems to be a...unsatisfactory issue :wtf:;

    I don't have this problem with homebrew. Are you copying the correct SAV file off the card and back on to the card with the NDS file afterwards?

    Which homebrew is it you're trying to run?

    I think what he wants is to be able to run homebrew without the need of 512k being taken up for a .sav as well as not having to hit ignore everytime he launches it.

    Spot on Katalyst.

    For those not in the know - homebrew does not use a save file. The R4 prompts to create a blank 512kb save file regardless.

    Overall, it's not a major issue, just a waste of precious megabytes or continually hitting 'Ignore'.
