I've recently been playing Shantae on the 3DS virtual console, and have just managed to get my hands on a flash cart for the Game Boy. I've written a patch for the ROM that forces GBA mode while keeping the GBC palette, and I was hoping to be able to somehow convert my 3DS save to the original GBC format. I assumed it would be fairly simple since the virtual console is just an emulator after all. I was able to get a file that I'm positive contains the game's save information somewhere, which was the save backup option thing. I backed it up, checked the SD card, and the save was indeed there (it's definitely the right one, since it's the only one with today's date). The problem is that it's pretty much nonsense. After comparing it to a save from the original Shantae, there isn't anything in the hex that even remotely resembles the actual save data. So ultimately, I've got no idea where to go from here. Does anyone know how to grab and convert a 3DS Virtual Console save file into an original GBC save? Thanks!
