    Okay, my story is a distressing one, perhaps.

    Just bought my DS on Saturday only to realise four days later there was a line appearing on the upper screen and after referring to Nintendo's official website, it's a hardware problem. I had to send the DS to Nintendo (via retailer) on Wednesday. So now I have an R4 and I want to play Pokemon Diamond while waiting for my DS.

    Are there any emulators that can play Pokemon Diamond at full speed and the saves work on my R4 so I can continue playing on my DS after I get it back?

    If you want to convert save files to R4 format save files, try Shuny's Online Save Converter

    For emulators, try the latest version of No$gba. It should work ok

    There are several threads I read, no$gba saves cannot be converted to R4 saves. That's the main reason of my extra predicament.

    The easiest thing to do would be to find an emulator that uses .sav format. This way you can convert it to 512mb.sav with the shuny converter.

    Which emulator utilises the R4 save format?

    And the Shuny converter, which Source format must I choose if I were to convert Emulator save to R4 save? And vice versa, of course.
