    Hi there, I lost my save for Zelda and I managed to find a gateway save online which had a fully completed save, but my question is:

    How do I go about getting it to work? Does anyone have a guide or can even just explain a little? Thanks!

    Regards!

    If it's a .sav file that was created from a .3ds rom, you can just use it save file with an appropriate rom from the matching region (eur, usa, jap).

    If it's a .sav file that was created from a .3dz rom, you need the rom with the exact same header (or complete rom with the used header already in it).

    Just place the .sav file on the root of your SD card inside your Nintendo 3DS.
    And the rom offcourse on the root of your micro sd card that you use for the red Gateway card.

    Right, thanks very much I have managed to get it to work. :)

    Just in case anyone else has a similar problem, check the number of the .sav you downloaded, in my case it was 00040000000EC400.sav, and put the code in on http://3ds.essh.co/ and it will tell you which rom will work with the save.

    Thanks again Shamier.

    Regards!
