This tutorial will show you how and where to access your save files while using a 3DS emulator. This guide will cover the most popular emulator for running 3DS games: Citra (Computer). This guide assumes that you have already set up and played one of these emulators at least once.
This is not a setup guide. This guide is meant to show where to find or inject your save files.
1. Open up Citra.
2. Right click on your desired game. Then click on "Open Save Data Location"
3.Inside this folder will be your save file.
4. MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE BEFORE USING OR EDITING IT WITH ANY SAVE EDITORS.
For this to work, make sure:
(1) File name is main
(2) It is the only file in this folder.
