    Is there a DS-X to R4 sav converter out there?
    I just got my R4 and no matter how I tried, even using the R4 converter, I just can't get it done.

    the r4 converter should get the job done!

    you tried different saves? maybe something is wrong with the save?!?

    I tried the converter. However, the game loaded correctly without asking me to create a new save but all of the game progress are lost.

    Get File Trimmer, cut the first 24 bytes off it, save the output as a .gz file. Extract the content with WinRar or similar program, and rename that to .sav. Voila, the 256KiB SC .sav that can be converted.

    It worked for my PoR save. By the way, name the file suffix as .nds.sav for Supercard for M3DSS/R4DS's converter. Perhaps with this and Rein, I can copy my DS-Xtreme save onto my real game card. Thanks a lot, jelbo! [​IMG]
