    Just to double check. When you install the GBA VC game to your system, before you attempt to inject/restore your save, did you start the game at least once? If not, there ya go.

    Edit:
    https://github.com/d0k3/GodMode9#system-file-handling
    Inject and dump GBA VC saves: Look for a file called gbavc.sav inside the S: drive. Keep in mind that you need to start the specific GBA game on your console before dumping / injecting the save.

    I do think, often. Most of the errors/issues from users here are PEBKAC from not reading directions. I'm assuming you tested your save backups and know that they indeed do work and aren't invalid?

    If you'd like, you can send me a sav file and let me know the game. I can test it over here.

    I guess it'd be stupid to ask if you tried D9WIP/HG9, even though it /should/ be the same method in both.

    I'd ask this: Open a gba game, create a save. Then retry. If not still, try extracting the save. Does that succeed?

    You meant exporting works, right? I still stand by my offer to help you out if you want to send me one of your sav files. I'd have to find the exact game as well. Assuming I'll find it on that iso site.

    I actually have ambassadors so that works out perfectly. I shall test this for you and report back! I assume your save is gba.sav format and not some emulator format that was poorly converted?

    You know, I noticed the save inject/extract methods do not work with ambassador games, I attempted this when I tried to move my savefile from Ambassador Yoshi's Island to an injected one (due to the color and ghosting), but I couldn't manage to extract a working copy, the save didn't work on an emulator either (which it should). When I attempted the same thing with Golden Sun (from injected CIA to injected CIA + color + ghosting) it worked perfectly.

    So yeah, something's up with Ambassador games.

    PD: I might not remember this correctly, but I think when I extracted the save files from both Yoshi Island games, both game had different sized saves.

    It works just fine. You just have to do a little research. For LTTP save, you have to trim it to 32KB. You need to find a GBA sav trimmer (M3 might still have one online) or grab the trimmed save file off of that iso site. There's a thread with the usa version of LTTP:FS with mode7/intro/voices removed, and your save file (end of game), trimmed to 32KB.

    For Minish Cap, https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-bring-your-wiiu-gba-saves-to-3ds-gba-vc.464919/ scroll down to Edit3 and there will be a program to use to reverse the bytes.
