HELP! DesMuMe to Original Gamecart .sav Transfer gone wrong


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is my first post and I really need help.

I started a Platinum playthrough on my computer which I enjoyed more than my original. As such, I want to transfer the data from DesMuMe to my original NDS cartridge using 3ds homebrew (Checkpoint).

Although I'm fairly new to this type of stuff, I read a few guides and got the homebrew launching successfully,; however, something went wrong when I restored the new .sav on Checkpoint...

Whenever I boot the game cart, all I can see is a black screen which lasts for about a minute before reloading the 3ds menu. I tried restoring the original .sav, but I still get the same crash.😟

So here's my question:

1) Can my Pokemon Platinum cart be restored original functionality? How?

2) How do I transfer my DesMuMe save to the DS gamecart? 

All saves work on DesMuMe when I import them. I used the Export backup save function to convert the .dsv to .sav (RAW and NO$GBA), but I'm not sure if these files need formatting before restoring them to the original cart. Anyway, I'm more concerned that my Platinum is permanently broken...

Please help me out. 🙏

Are you certain you have a legit cart?

It'll normally either load your save correctly, or tell you the save loaded is corrupted, and be able to play a fresh game after.

Additionally, if you restore the old save, it should just continue from there.

Unless someone has any better ideas, what I'll say is.. it sounds to me like it was a fake cart to begin with..

Just tried it with a different game. Pokemon Pearl had the same issue... That one I remember unwrapping for my bday. Pls help.

 

So the issue is not with the carts, the 3ds wont launch any DS games.

The carts and the editor work fine. I tested them on a different console.

I'm not sure why this would be, but it is a bigger problem. Any ideas?

Hey, first off, don't multi-post. Any new information, edit your latest unanswered post.
I've merged your posts :3

Next, can you try booting into Nintendo DS Connections in the System Settings?
Let me know how it goes.

OK, won't do.

NDS Connections causes the same crash. :/

Seems to only happen with DS games, Pokemon X loads just fine.

To quote a gbatemp post:

probably your twl firmware is bugged

you probably need to search a more 3DS dedicated community in relation to how to fix your twl firmware.
