    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    So I forgot to switch the game before removing the micro sdcard to insert some new games. When I put back my Sky3DS to my 3DS, I'm waay behind in Majora's Mask.
    Is there any way I can get my save data back? :(

    Yup. Hop in your Swordfish and when Ein pulls it out of a warp you just hold your breath and close your eyes, because you're in for a big surprise...

    English - no, your old save is lost. ALWAYS switch to next game before removing microsd.

    You can still press the button to save, but obviously it stays at the one game you have in.

    Just press the button before switching SD's, it's mentioned in just about every Readme file about the Sky3DS.

    This is how it works.

    Game boots up and sky3ds loads the save from sd card into flash memory.
    You play the game and save it.
    Then you want to switch games.

    It then writes that flash information to the sd card.
    Then it takes the next game data and writes it to flash.

    Each time you press the button it does this ^ ( blue light blinks because it changing games and read/writing from sd card)

    your save data was on the flash. When you took it out you open the gate and you let them out (loll.... resident evil my bad lol..)

    but really you deleted all the flash save data for the game. So when you put it back in it read the old save data that is on the sd card.

    So your SOL, and your just have to replay the game. and remember next time

    Touché

    But calling CN a game is a bit of a stretch. It is a tool. :)

    ROTFL :rofl:

    Srsly... I busted a gut.

    Yeah, please use more than one game. Min 2. Max 31 per mSD. It was designed to be used. So use it.

    Good point that CN is more a tool. As is Zelda-OOT. That's the great thing about Sky3DS. But yeah... you'd be better using an OG CN.

    Always cycle past the game you want to make a backup of.

    For the future, you can use sky for n3ds us, just burn CN US to sky. Done :)) simple.

    Thanks for the replies. I managed to do everything all over again, I'll remember to switch the game before I do anything next time. ;)
