    Nothing fancy.
    Includes:
    • A Readme.txt that has instructions and requirements.
    • Sm4shExplorer(Preconfigured)
    • Titledumper/DDD
    • SD card directory predone.
    • Bat file to help with dumping process.

    Hope this helps!

    Note: Your SD card must be formatted with FAT32. Use this tool. This will delete everything on your SD card so back it up if needed.

    Thanks man! I already have mine dumped, but hopefully this will help other people. It can definitely get overwhelming to go from 0 to modding smash.

    What? If I wasn't experienced in Sm4sh modding and dumping I would be confused right now. You can dump Smash with DDD. It's pretty simple. And you don't need Sm4shExploer to dump Smash. That's for people who want to mod.

    will the sm4sh explorer work with an EU dump?

    Would this work with an SDHC card?

    Yes. SDHC just means that the sd card has storage between 4GB and 32 GB. SDXC has more, and regular SD has less. all of these are compatible up to 256GB.

    Well, it's worked well enough, but when I get to the part with DDD and I put in my IP, and then launch Sm4sh, it just launches as normal. Is it the fault of the card or what? I've tried it multiple times :/

    Did you press A or X? I usually press X so maybe that will work?

    What kind of SD card is it? Might not be detecting it. Also try formatting it FAT32. That usually helps.

    So where does the game dump?(Where would you locate the vol folder?)

    Fat32 is required. It's not an option

    The dump is written to the /dump folder when it starts. In there will be the /vol folder. But you won't need to really look in that folder often.

    Thanks for letting me know that. I'll add that to the Readme.md and the post.

    Did CMD mention anything about those files? Any errors? The dump should contain those.

    No. I dump the game and press crt+c and n and enter and it says
    ERROR There seems to be a problem with the game folder: './../../dump/vol/', check your config file and make sure this directory contains the game and is accessible.
    ERROR No data was found.
    I checked it and it downloaded dt00 and dt01 but nothing else
    Do you need all the dlc for it to dump or what.
