    I sold my N3DSXL and Gateway card a couple months ago, but retained all of my save files. Today I got a 3DSXL and spent a good portion of my afternoon downgrading it to 9.2 and getting rxTools set up and a single CIA installed.

    What I'm stuck on now is how to use my old Gateway save file for that CIA? I've found a couple guides but they seem to require the Gateway card, which I no longer have. I'm hoping there's a way to do it without one. I searched around a bit and could not find anything, but if anyone is aware of a guide I'd appreciate you pointing it out. Thanks!

    You mention .cia saves. Are your saves in ".sav" format?

    My .3DS/Gateway saves are all .SAV. I don't currently have any .CIA/rxTools saves. Hopefully I'm phrasing that right.

    As far as I know, you need a Gateway to convert those to savdatafiler. I could do it for you if you like. How much do you know about savedatafiler?

    I have it installed and successfully dumped the one save I do have (a minute into the game), but haven't imported any saves.

    If you can do the conversion that would be great. I can research what to do with them afterwards. I only have 3 or 4 -- can I PM them to you?

    Sure, make sure to let me know what region each one is.
