    Can I convert the saves from my AK2 to play on my SCDS1? Can I just rename the save?

    AK2 has .sav and the Supercard has .SAV

    IMHO you can simply rename it.
    AKAIK AK2 uses game.nds.sav while SCDS1 uses game.SAV

    if there is a long name save, SCDS1 will use it.
    But if it has to create one, than it will create the short (game~1.SAV) version.

    Yeah I changed my AK2 to save as just .sav.

    I tried to rename it but it didn't work.

    if you encounter any problems with save conversion, just go to shunyweb.info to convert your saves the proper way [​IMG]

    No need to convert your save files, just rename them correctly. I haven't encountered a single save problem when exchanging saves between my Scds1 and Ak2 by doing so.

    It says "error, no need to convert".

    So how do I rename the save properly?

    Edit: Got it. It sucks though.

    I had to rename all mine with the short DOS 8 letter names. I wish they'd add support for long file names.

    You shouldn't have to do so. The following renaming scheme should work.

    Example:
    LongRomName.nds LongRomName.sav
