    OK, so I've played a game on PocketNES (Earthbound Zero, if it matters), saved my progress - and want to be able to continue that progress using NesterJ on the PSP. On NesterJ, the game creates a 8KB SAV file. Using PocketNES SRAM Manager I can extra the SAV data for individual games and save them as separate files, but it saves whopping 64KB SAV files -- which leads me to believe it's creating a SAV file compatible with PocketNES, not actually extrating the NES SAV file for the actual game that I want.

    So in short, is there a way to do it? Am I just talking crazy talk? [​IMG] Maybe I need to trim the SAV file, or a handy converter exists?

    I found a tool for the job!

    PocketNES Save Extractor rips out the SAV files automatically. A quick copy and paste, and I was continuing my saved game on the PSP. Classy!

    I've uploaded the tool for everyone else: PocketNES Save Extractor. Enjoy!!
