Mismatched Posted May 8, 2022 Share Posted May 8, 2022 I originally bought a repro cart to play Soul Silver. I have since acquired a legit cart and want to move my data onto it, however I haven't been able to get it to work. I've successfully moved around data between other cartridges, but can't get the save data from my SoulSilver to load on anything else. I've tried using Savetool and checksum, and when I transfer it to the legitimate cartridge the data on the cartridge is replaced and it takes me to the tutorial like I have no save data and it's a new game. I've tried loading the .sav in DeSmuME and it's the same thing. PKHEX doesn't seem to recognize it either. The game is still playable and you can even trade from it on the 3ds, however trying voltorb flip crashes the game and when starting the game if I hit continue on the game crashes unless I hit new game, mash through the tutorial until I can walk around, then soft reset, then I can open my file without it crashing. It used to require that only on the OGds but as of today after making backups it requires me to do that on my new 3ds xl as well. Any advice, or other things to try? I'm guessing the repro cart either saves the data in a different format, or the game is so broken those programs can't read it. I'm worried the game may one day give out entirely and I really want to have my data saved. I couldn't figure out how to add a file to this post so here's a dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/s7ed8yhuiaqvawj/POKEMON SS.sav?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/0u1gtz61kr1i7vg/POKEMON SSfirstbackup.sav?dl=0 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
