Force load of new save file from SD card
« on: July 05, 2020, 07:22 AM »
I'm testing out some features of my game on hardware and would like to easily transfer save files to/from the Everdrive, but can't find an easy function to do so. If I just copy the save file to the SD card (and the game was the last one loaded) then it will ignore the new save file and just use what was already in memory. My current workaround involves "selecting" a different ROM (forcing the Everdrive to copy its in-memory save to the SD card in preparation of loading the new one), then I can overwrite the file. I would just appreciate knowing if there's a more straightforward way of doing this.

I just keep one game that I don't care about ready to load up everytime I'm planning on backing-up/updating saves. Usually something small without any save to speak of.
