If you can't find the slot2 folder inside drastic's folder you can just use a file manager to make a new folder and just name it "slot2" (minus the ""). This is assuming younare running the latest version of DraStic since older versions didn't have the folder because they didn't have support for slot2 functionality.

Did you buy the app on Google Play?

When new users don't state whether they purchased Drastic or not makes it complicated.

I thought Drastic auto creates the folders you delete in it by launching the app.

I crawl on these forums just to see how things are going with the users and the upcoming betas and to see the communities mods etc, etc. [Also thanks to Exophase to letting unregistered users freely download things here, I really love the option to not be forced to make an account just to download something.]

Anyways, back on topic, I made my account just to help you out, cause this community is helpful as fu**.

So you say you might have accidentally deleted the folder? It's ok. I recommend using ES File Explorer for this.

Go to /sdcard/DraStic/
If there isn't a "slot2" folder, create one, without quotes using the "+" in the bottom right corner.
From there, it gets ez. Here's a quote from Exophase, quite a while back, but is still relevant.
Exophase wrote: Right now it works by putting files named<rom name>.gba and <rom name>.sav in the slot2 directory. Or if those aren't found it'll load slot2_gamepak.gba + slot2_gamepak.sav if they're there. The .sav files are optional. It supports reading and writing SRAM and Flash saves. EEPROM saves aren't supported because DS lacks the capability to access it (so games wouldn't use it anyway)

It turns out the Nintendo logo is actually in the header of DS ROMs, I totally forgot about this.. so it doesn't even need to be copied from the GBA ROM.
Hope this helps.
