Are there any plans to add exFAT support for cheat searching? Most people use that over FAT32, and it's drastically slowing down the cheating scene as most people can't help with finding new cheats.

Its apparently an issue with nintendo's own driver for exfat, So wont be fixed anytime soon, Suggestion was to run a fat32 SD card seperately for games you wanna cheat on

AFAIK, FAT32 is only really recommending when searching to avoid sd card corruption You can use the cheats with exFAT without trouble.

exfat support will be great , and an online base as well . this way you can play a game check if there are available cheats and download them , as you could with Nintendo Wii console .

as stated above, exFAT trouble is caused by the buggy Nintendo exFAT driver. exFAT is supported, it's just not recommended due to the greater chances of file system corruption.

Development is still ongoing for the cheat engine.

Is there a way to back up all the info on the exfast microsd into an external har drive ?? if theres is can you post a link ?
So if someone messed up trying , it will be able to format the micro sd exfat card and copy the back up from the hard drive.
Could that be an option ??

as long as you aren't using emunand in a hidden partition, you can just copy your data off the SD card and copy it back after formatting. The only problem you will run into is files over 4gb in size. .xci files can be split and work just fine, so you may have to tweak a few things if you run into that.
