I had a DS-X and purchased an Acekard RPG. I already know about the shuny web converter however it's unsuitable for multiple files, and I have about one hundred saves to convert. So is there an offline batch converter up to the task?

Incidentally, I already tested to see if the save formats between the two were compatible but that would have been too easy.

Not to sound ungrateful for the responses, but did either of you _read_ a word of my post?

Use this Multi Save Converter uploaded on GBAtemp's downloads section.

You can convert multiple save files quick like all at once, so this should be what your looking for.

That won't work with DS-X saves (I should know, I wrote it). In fact, it doesn't do any sort of real converting, it just takes small save files and makes them bigger for carts that require save files of a certain size. IIRC, DS-X saves are gzip files with a header attached. You would have to remove the header and unzip the file before it can be used on a different flashcart.

Was the offline version of Shuny's converter ever released?

Yeah, it sounds like I'll be doing it by hand.

A different question: what do you do when a save won't convert across formats? I've got a Zelda: PH save from DS-X but after conversion it detects it as corrupted and deletes it. The same happened with Phoenix Wright, but I was between chapters anyway so I used a cheat code just to open them all since it makes no difference. I've got many hours of play time in Zelda though that I'd rather not redo.

Every time I've tried converting a Zelda save with Shuny's converter it blanked out the last half of the save (that was quite a while back though). Try using the RAW format [force 512kb] option as the target format. If that doesn't work, post your save and I'll try to convert it manually.

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it

    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

    Funny that, I actually just replaced a Yamaha receiver, replaced it with a manufacturer refurbished Denon unit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Only reason for replacing is that the Yamaha unit was like 8 years old and didn't support 4k video

    Denon makes good shit

    And now that I think of it, only a single device that's plugged into it is even capable of outputting a 4k signal anyway lmfao
