    Hello World [​IMG]
    First start : I'm french and i little speak english, sorry dude for my language [​IMG]

    So, I'm asking you about the save of Lameboy:
    The save format is ".ls".
    And I would like convert this format into a .sav or .sgm (compatible with Virtual Boy Advance).
    What can I do for this action ?
    Thanks for the reply.

    Vukilore,
    Your french's dude:)

    Renomme le .ls en .sav, ça marchera surement. (Si ça marche, tu peux faire l'inverse)

    For those English guys here : Rename .ls into .sav, maybe it could work. (If it works, the reverse is possible to do)

    Eh bien, vous êtes simplement en changeant le nom *. sav et il stocke des données devrait donc fonctionner.

    If you post something in another language, then you must post it's translation as well.

    It means:
    Well you are just changing the name to *.sav and it stores data so it should work.

    Ce ne marche pas, deplus, la taille du fichier .ls est de 68ko, or celle du .sav fait 38ko.
    That doesn't work, and the sise of the .ls file is 68ko, and the .sav is 38ko
    Thanks for reply

    Merci beaucoup.

    How about using a real cartridge instead of pirating games?

    Right, I know a way. Do you know all of the variable in the .Is file? If so, you can read them by the DS, and output them to .sav!

    Try to put the save in the same directory of the rom. Make sure the filenames are the same. When you load the rom, it should load the save as well. I believe it's how I have done mine.

    EDIT: Confirmed that the above is how I do it with GBA roms. So it should work with GB/GBC roms as well.

    EDIT2: Scratch that, it's wrong. It didn't work like I thought it would.

    To make it work with VBA, you need Lameboy to output a .sav file. This will happen if the game has its own saving ability. Load the game, load the savestate, then save in the game itself. Press X to update the *.sav file with the new data, and turn off the DS.
