    Okay. can you try this:
    Burn Zelda OOT
    played a few minutes
    saved
    backup save to your PC
    removed the game
    played with another game

    Format the card
    restore save
    reburn OOT

    And tell me if the save is back. This is to confirm if the actual restoring of saves is working or not.



    What's not showing? Did you manage to get more than 10 games onto your Sky3DS?

    How did you get it working ? simply with the crack tool? Do you have 15 games on the same card?

    And can you tell me what happens when you reach the 10 games limit and don't use the crack? Can you launch more than 10 games but can't save? Or 11th game doesn't show?

    EDIT: can you try to backup your saves, format the SD card, restore your saves and see if they are here

    My issue is that some games go to no and some go to yes. Saves only work if the 11, 12, 13 etc game saves no. If it says yes once you take the card out you will have to start over. How do you make all games say no???

    You still have to you the crack tool. But the tool is not making all my games say no.

    So it seems that the 10 games limitation is about save limitation, right?
    With 20 games all NO eeprom, any problem at all...

    Correct as long as the games over 10 say NO eeprom the saves work after a reboot or a game change.

    And did you try to backup /restore save for games over 10 with NO eeprom? Because it doesn't work for me...

    This is an interesting find. Maybe the 10 game limit wasn't all we thought it was. Maybe Sky3DS actually did consider the fact that any more messes up with saves.

    We need to confirm this ASAP. My Sky3DS can't come soon enough. :S

    I have not tired 20 games all NO eeprom. When i got it the hack was not out so I already used my 10 slots up. But the hack works fine after 10.

    How did you get this to work? When I put my 11th game in and do the switch it shows the 11th game but when I go to play the game it loads and then says the 3ds cartridge has been removed? When I reset and go back it swaps right to my original 10 games?
    I wonder if I am missing a step...

    I have had luck with conversion and loading and seeing it switch to 11th game but actually being able to play it is a different story. The game will appear to load but give me error that card has been removed. Also when it changes to 11th game it will auto switch on its own to one of my original 10. I must be missing a step that I am not aware of.

    Yes I modified the template file. The conversion and everything all seemed to work because it converted the EEProm to no . It does comes up in my switch list but when I go to play it it quickly switches to the next game of the original 10.

    I must be missing something?

    And if you leave only 1 game on your sd card (11th game), can you play it?

    I do that 5 second switch and press a and it takes me into the game like it is loading and then says remove card. I then go back home and my game has switched. Is it suppose to work a different way.

    I am trying to just have the 11th game alone. I will let you know. Thanks for the suggestion
