    JK's Save Manager for 3DS

    Project mention: Need help with Mario Kart7, I already own it but I want to digitally download it......but | /r/3dshacks | 2023-07-04

    I can't remember if this specific method also copies your save game for you, so if the save game doesn't appear on the digital copy, you can use Checkpoint or JKSM to copy your save game from the cartridge to the installed version. You won't lost your save data.

  • pkmn-chest

    A Pokémon Bank for the 3rd through 5th generation Pokémon games for the Nintendo DS(i).

    Project mention: Does PowerSaves work on ds cartridges? | /r/NintendoDS | 2023-06-19

    In my experience, the best way to cheat in Pokemon is using save editors rather than codes. For hacked 3DS, PKSM is the way to go. For hacked DSi, Pokemon Chest. Both are about the same thing: a combination of Pokemon Bank without needing to connect to the internet, moving pokes between generations, and a savegame editor that can create and edit Pokemon as well as some other stuff in your save. PKSM is the better app since it supports generations 1-7 on 3DS, but Chest runs on a DSi and handles generations 3-5.

    Project mention: Emuiibo/Amiigo Totk + ss json files | /r/SwitchPirates | 2023-06-04
  • Luna-App

    Homebrew App to dump Animal Crossing: New Horizons islands you visit. Now using on-device De- and Encryption!

    Project mention: An interloper destroyed my giveaway island (used a glitch which erased all items), so I decided to make a montage of my rebuild! | /r/AnimalCrossing | 2023-04-29

    This one downloads someone else's island to your Switch. You can effectively make an exact copy of their island, and then you can replace your local island with a copy of that island. This means if you found an island you really liked, you can copy it and make it your own. This even works when visiting someone else's island over the internet.

  • mcrecover

    GameCube Memory Card Recovery program.

    Project mention: Corrupt card can’t format | /r/Gamecube | 2023-04-12

    Your best bet is to use GCMM to extract all the save files it can detect as GCIs and also make a raw backup of the card to use with GCN Memcard Recover. While it doesn't have 100% compatibility, it will likely get your missing data back. If there's a game that it doesn't support currently, let me know and I can try to add it. As far as your memory card goes, I have yet to find a way to resolve this issue. You cannot use a memory card reliably after this issue starts to occur. Are you using a 1019 block OEM memory card or is this a third party card?

  • CaveStoryNDS

    Cave Story for Nintendo DS, w/ multiplayer and mods

    Project mention: Cave Story port projects for Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance by tilderain | /r/retrogamedev | 2022-12-22

  • oead

  • melonds-ds

    A remake of the libretro melonDS core that prioritizes standalone parity, reliability, and usability.

    Project mention: Mic doesn't work for the DS. | /r/RetroArch | 2023-11-09

    some games don't like the noise sample that the core loads for the microphone. There's currently nothing to be done about it in the libretro cores, but there's a WIP melonDS core that can use an actual microphone. You can download and try it from here: https://github.com/JesseTG/melonds-ds/releases
