Hello all, I come with (hopefully) a not completely stupid question

I got my father an o3ds for Christmas (Came in version 2.2, updated with Luigi's Mansion to 4.5) I want to copy my save files from Pokémon Dungeon and Super Smash Bros (Both real carts) into CIA files because he has put time into them both and I want my games but I don't want to take his saves away. I would like to know if this is possible and how to possibly do it.

I would also like to know if the 3ds would need updating to 9.2, I would be fine putting everything into CIAs for him and getting emunand to load on boot, I just need to know if this is required (I do have a gateway that he will be getting so any alternatives involving that will be good too and I will backup the NAND before messing with it, I at least know that) and Smash Bros also contains DLC, would it be possible to just redownload it into the CIA or would it not be possible?

Sorry if that is a lot and thank you all for helping

It will not be entirely required to update to 9.2 but I definitely recommend it.

I don't know if there are incompatibility issues anymore with 6.x+ saves when sysnand is 4.5, but if there is, then the saves from the legit cartridges would probably be seen as corrupted once trying to load them on emunand. That was a long time ago though and I don't know if that is an issue anymore. Still recommend updating to 9.2 though so you can be certain, and then you can just boot rxtools from powering on the 3DS and be in emunand automatically.

Not too difficult to backup save files from legit game cartridges to cia-installed, I recommend just going in homebrew launcher via your emunand, backing up the save files from the retail cartridges with svdt, then re-importing those into the .cia-installed ones. Should work just fine.

As for the DLC, it is tied to the NNID that purchased them. If you can transfer that NNID over to the other 3DS then it would just be a matter of re-downloading them. It is possible to just find the DLC online as .cia and install it the same way you would install the game, though.

Well with the save data on 4.5 sysnand, I think it's still a problem (Not too bad for me though) but I can't find anything about injecting saves into .cia files at all, have I just completely missed a guide or something?

You can do that with svdt in homebrew launcher. Boot homebrew launcher through emunand and it will be able to see all your installed .cias, and allow you to backup and restore save data.

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".

    @kenenthk I used OpenMPT to make all the music. My brother will be helping out with some more tunes in the future!
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?
