Curious as to whether or not this is possible.
there is a programme called rein that does it. I have never used it.
Rein works great. I believe it can only be used with gba slot cards though. which makes sense considering you need the game in slot one.
You can also take save files off the original carts if you have a G6 Lite without any additional software as there are options in the main menu to backup or write to game cards.
so other then the g6 can you put saves on a real game
Yea, use Rein.. just like they said >_>
Slot-2 eh? Anyone know if Rein is compatible with a Flash2Advance 256mbit?
No rein will not work for the F2A (it writes to the memory card), also with regard to rein nobody to my knowledge has made a DLDI version so you are stuck hunting down cart specific builds (the original does take care of a lot of older carts) or compiling your own.
I only have a link to cory1492's build on hand but a simple search either on one of the mirror/news sites or your carts forum should turn up some more:
All is not lost though for those without a build as you can use a save grabber that uses the SRAM of your cart, there are a couple available the best of which is argueably Etool (it may have issues with some 2mbit or larger saves though):
If you were so inclined you could buy an action replay device as well.
Thanks FAST6191. I used EToolSMS 2.1. Seems it worked, but there's no way for the F2Ausb writer 1.1 software to transfer the 2mbit save it generated from my Final Fantasy 3 cart to my PC.
Also.. if I'm somehow able to transfer the save to my PC, is there a tool to convert the save to a format the M3DS Simply can read?
I almost missed the reply there, the save you generated should be in RAW format aka the one used by supercard, EZFlash and g6 (the DSX can also import nowadays if I recall).
As for conversion I do not know if outphase's convertor will work (you will have to search the forums I am afraid) but I believe there is some, I do not own one but the FAQs should give an answer. It should definitely be possible though.
An Action Replay Max Duo will allow you to extract save games from retail cartridges.
use etool3 instead.
Why? The issue here is that I can't find a way of retrieving the compressed 2mbit save generated by etoolsms, as the save is reported as being stored in the 6th 64kB slot, but the F2A software can only read 4 64kB slots..
iirc, etool was actually made before etoolsms, and it only writes one save, not multiple.
anyway, you can read the save from your flashcart with the reader software and decompress it with the etool save app.
this is why people should read the whole thread before replying...
Why does everyone act like they have a slot-2 cart? I'm really surprised no one has made a save tool for slot-1 carts yet, and they've been around for long enough now. It *probably* wouldn't be that hard to make a homebrew that fits in the DS's RAM so that you could swap the slot-1 flashcart for the original game, and then swap back again, with the save being retained in RAM. I mean there's 4MB of RAM, so it should technically be possible.
that would probably depend on how the slot-1 card initializes itself...
is the sd card writable once the card is plugged in or is there boot-up sequence to follow, etc...
get a slot two you fool
I believe that Chism's Nitro Hax can do the swap thing for codes(Activate codes, remove slot-1 flashcart, insert game to use codes), so why can't some one do the same thing for saves?
On a side note, does anyone know of a build of Rein/Reinmoon that works with the Ewin2?
