    I was playing a cia of Super Mario World and it crashed. It seems to crash in the same place and then my 3ds tells me it had to restart.


    Has anyone else experienced this?


    Also I have another question. I also have CIA's of pokemon firered and when I go to play it mentions something about the save file being corrupted and that it will load the last save. My save works fine but i'm just wondering if this is a concern I should be worried about like losing my save.

    When it comes to pokemon I'm pretty sure that has to do with lack of a physical battery. Some PC emulators do that too. As for Mario world, try another CIA and see if you run into the glitch, it might just be a poor injection.

    Oh well that's a relief. As long as my save works I guess.

    One more question. Where can I find save files for gba cia's? like on my SD card where are they located? and can I run them in an emulator on my PC?

    AGB firm saves are in their own encrypted partition on the 3ds, I dunno about extracting them, you can back that up for days with dycrypt9 but as for actually getting usable .sav files.. I don't think you can.

    I think that refers to the 3ds pokemon games but I am by no means an expert. Their might be a way but I don't really know it.

    It was for *ahem* custom built CIA's. My issue is with the gba pokemon games. I just wanted to know incase I wanted to use the save file on my PC to get extra pokemon or something(which would be nice.)


    Not to mention just being able to move saves in general to a PC is always nice.

    You need to use Agbsave9 to extract the save. Run the game you want to extract the save from and then run Agbsave9 and it will dump the save for you.

    Oh geez this sounds complicated. Isn't there an easier way?

    Well, the 3DS stores the save data for Gba vc in the NAND somewhere and this is the only tool I know of that can dump the save data. It's not even that complicated
