Save file management
« on: August 04, 2014, 11:51:10 PM »
How do you all manage your save files?  I am having trouble with only being able to have 3 save files in this game.  Is there some sneaky way to copy files from the cartridge to an SD card?

I suppose that I could buy extra copies of the game.  Is it possible to buy the digital download version without buying a gold 3DS XL?  And if you do, if you have the cartridge inserted, do both the download version and cartridge version show up separately?  That would give me 6 save files without having to switch cartridges.

Digital copies put your files on SD card, so you effectively have as any savefiles as you want.

Too bad cartridge doesn't let you, because 3 is just too damn few.

OK, I bought the download version, since my 3DS was already out of the EmuNAND firmware range anyway.

Can save files be copied off an SD card separately from the game itself?  Or does the save file get integrated into the game package somehow?

Is the game file literally copy protected?  Obviously, there will be something preventing the game moving from a 3DS to another 3DS, but is there any protection against moving the game files from one SD card to another if the same 3DS and Nintendo store account ends up using it?

There is a way to look at raw OoT3D save files, so I assume there's a way to do this for ALBW. I just don't know how
