    Hi guys,

    I have stupid question here, tried to search someone asked for but found nothing, so please help if you know.

    I play puzzle and dragon X with 3ds. it's updated to latest version with online support like a legit one, DLC works fine.

    I love this game so much then i plan to play it on my legit pure 3ds, i've gone to far for this game and don't want to start it all over again.

    could you guys please help me finding this solution please.

    ps. I play it on hacked 3ds, US emunand even though it's JP game.

    my legit one is JP

    Use JKSM. Follow this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/importing-gateway-saves-to-cia-games.425743/ except instead of importing the save to the installed game, import it to your cartridge. If there's extdata or if the save is on the SD card not the cartridge you might have to get homebrew working on the legit console to be able to import the save there.

    Hi dude, thank you so much, after i tried to understand, since it's too much confused for me because it's for gateway to cia.

    i have no idea how to import the converted save file into the legit 3ds one,

    not sure if the process above is to convert the one from gateway, get an another file on PC and just drag it into the SD card for legit one?

    if it's not too much, please kindly explain to me, i'm the stupid one for this.

    Thank you so much dude.

    is your legit game in digital or cartridge? does the game saves on cartridge or on 3ds?

    if your legit game is digital, or if the game saves on 3ds, do you have any way to run homebrew on your legit 3ds?

    I was having the CTR Broken problem and was able to get it working by using 0004000002C2330 for the save file name. Just a heads up for anyone else having an issue and wants to see if it works for them as well. I have also had 100% success rate for converting saves if anyone wants me to give it a shot for them not making any promises but I have not had a single problem converting my dragon quest, pokemon, mario and other games as of yet.

    all the link to 3dsdb site and needed tools are on the guide link posted by quantumcat above. i just tried to simplify the steps to suit your situation.
    1. Look up 3dsdb to for the game's title ID
    2. connect your 3ds (m)sd card to your pc, locate the .sav file with that title ID, make a backup copy, then rename the original .sav file to 0004000002C23200.sav or 0004000002C2330.sav as suggested by boomerams above if when exporting using JKSM you get error (you can use CTRX app on the 3ds for renaming .sav file if you don't want to bother with PC)
    3. install JKSM, load the game on your gw cart, don't start the game.
    4. run JKSM, choose Cartridge, then choose Export save. name it whatever.
    5. exit JKSM, remove gw cart, insert the legit game cart, play it if you haven't for the sake of creating/initializing a new save file on it.
    6. exit the game, run JKSM, choose Cartridge, this time choose Import.
    good luck.
