WarioWare D.I.Y.

Do you own WarioWare D.I.Y? Know someone who does or maybe you've tried emulating the game? Depending on your answer, you may be able to download some new minigames despite the fact the Nintendo Wii/DS servers have shut down!


If you're using an emulator then great! You've got the easiest setup. For steps on the actual copy of the game, keep scrolling:


Emulator Method

I recommend using DeSmuME 0.9.10 (or later).

We're going to need to export the game's save file for this game as the one the emulator generates is only a dummy.

  • Open up WarioWare D.I.Y.
  • Then, go to File > Export Backup Memory...
  • Save it somewhere, preferably in the same folder as the game
  • You're only half way there! Now we need to download the appropriate software. Go to MIO Software (below) then return here
  • MIO Software steps
  • All that's left now is to import the save file back into WarioWare.
  • Go back to DeSmuME, and with WarioWare D.I.Y. still open, go File > Import Backup Memory...
  • Select the save file you exported.

That's it! If you have a Magicom (Like the R4 card), you can use this to distribute the new games with another WarioWare D.I.Y. owner!


Physical Copy Method

This is going to require some special hardware to export your save file, although it is possible you may find some technique online involving a Nintendo 3DS and the 3DS Homebrew menu.

One piece of hardware I know of is an Action Replay, specifically the kind that has a DS cartridge slot attached to the top of it. This kind can export backup saves to a Micro SD card.

The other I know of is a USB cable made by Xploder, but be careful as some older versions do not support WarioWare D.I.Y. and other DS games. If you go to their Online Shop, you can find the latest version of their DS tool.

Assuming you've gone through the steps of either the Action Replay method, Xploder method or Homebrew method (not included here), you should have yourself your save file.

It's possible you might need to extend your save file (if your file ends in something like .gds). I made a video in 2015 explaining how to do this, and I recommend you watch it! The gist of it is that you use an online converter. WarioWare D.I.Y.'s save file is 256kb, so pick the Acekard RPG | EXFlash V | RAW Format | Force [256kb] (.sav) option (if for whatever reason it converts it to 128kb or some other number, then try Acekard RPG | EXFlash V | RAW Format | Force [512kb] (.sav)). Don't worry if that doesn't make sense as it's both in the video and the video description.

Now you have your save file in the .sav extension, that means you're only half way done. To add new games, we need to download the appropriate software. Go to MIO Software (below) then return here

<MIO Software steps>

All that's left now is to return the save file. Using the website mentioned in the YouTube video you looked at, convert the file back to its former state (likely .gds). The rest should come naturally if you were able to export the save file successfully.

That was a pretty complicated setup, but if you really want to do it this way that's fine. I hope this guide was a great help!


MIO Software

Now that you have your save file, you'll need to download miotool.

Open it up and go File > Open SAV...

Select your save file and now your current games/music/comics are listed!

Now we just need some games (Further down the page). If you can't be bothered to pick one, here's my 'COIN GAME.mio' I featured on my YouTube channel (Under the name Donkey Kong '95).

All you need to do now, is go back to miotool and click the Import button.

Select a .mio game file, and it's now in the list!

To keep your new minigames (or whatever else you find online to import), go File > Save SAV...

That's it for the miotool! You can return back to the section you just came from!
