    Hi,

    Playing yo-kai watch with my son on custom FW.

    Have just made it through to Eddies house and Rank C so have done a fair amount of the early missions.

    But now the map has opened up the new section of the map is BLACK and you fall off the end of it and keep falling till the game crashes!

    if you take another entrance not he map to a new section it never loads.

    Any thoughts? Would consider reinstalling but want the save game progress .

    1- Any one come across this?
    2 - how do i back up my save game?
    3 - can i just reinstall is with out effecting the saved game.

    Sorry new to the this scene as not had the 3DS long.

    all help welcome as have a rather upset 6 year old looking for a solution i don't have!

    cheers

    More information like the FW and the Custom Firmware would be helpful and yes you can use this to back up your save, but the save might be corrupted and this post isn't in the right sub forum. In case the save is corrupted I'd recommend playing the second game as it is a sequel and fixes many cons in the first game. You don't need to have played the first game to play the second.

    Hi, Sorry wasn't sure of the sub forum it should be in.

    SYS - 11.2.0-35E
    Luma -6.1.1

    One of my main issues was with the big black area of the map missing and why this had happened. could it be the CIA and if so should i look foremother.

    I backed up the save game with JKSM but yet to test it.

    I would backup the save using JKSM, delete the game, install freeShop 2.1.3 (use Google to find the freeShop 2.1.3 CIA file), reinstall the game using freeShop, and restore the save file.

    Also, the latest version of Luma3DS is 6.6.

    It is highly recommended that you update Luma3DS from 6.1.1 to 6.6 if you haven't already done so.

    sorry for the NOOB questions but can i just update to 6.6 in Luma or are there other settings required?

    yes i'm using autoupdate from title keys its's not in the shop but looked it up now on title keys so can grab with FBI.

    Do i have an issue with my update for freeshop?

    Also just updated FBI to 2.4.6 and it had an issue when looking at titles.

    So next steps:
    1- update to luma 6.6 - can I just do this through the Luma game app ? nothing else needed?
    2- check the freeshop update - currently updating with new titles but now all available -
    3 - delete version of Yokai i have installed
    4 - install version from title keys
    5 - import save

    let me know and thanks for the hand holding

    You can't mention that title key site. It needs to be dectitlekey not enc and yeah that should work.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Use 'starUpdater' to uptate, should be there since you installed a9lh. Then 'latest stable version'.

    Yeah. Make a folder called 'freeShop' on your root and put the dectitlekey in there and open freeshop.

    hmm.... did try that too but no joy so went via FBI and it's downloading

    not sure why that not working there but will have look put the .bin in there on the root "freeShop" so will check after this has installed as would rather do it direct than through FBI QR code
