    For the first time ever I decided to download a couple saved games from GameFAQS and they came in .duc form. I tried converting them using Shuny's converter but it converted them to .sav.gz (I am not sure what that means). I tried putting that onto my flashcart but it didn't work. What do I do? Again, sorry about the noob question.

    It would help if we knew which flashcart you're using. It sounds like you selected the wrong output format.

    BTW, you can open GZip (.gz) files with WinRAR.

    The converter output a compressed savegame so the converted savegame is way smaller and it's better for my poor server [​IMG]

    I have a feeling you can tell the browsers the file is GZIP compressed, and all modern browsers will decompress on the fly, as it is a common method of reducing server load.

    I approve of saving bandwidth, but you really ought to use zip files so that the noobs don't have to ask how to use the file.

    It was already done but I put Content-Transfert-Encoding instead of Content-Encoding.

    It works now [​IMG]

    Make sure the name of the save is the same name as the game (ie mario kart DS.nds wont wont load the Save file if the .sav is Mario Kart DS(xenophobia).sav)

    Thank god your site is proper and even uses MIME Types. It can be a hellish nightmare of annoyingness for Opera users when people don't use MIME Types.

    No, it doesnt matter. when you try to load a game does it ask to create a save? or does it load your game and the save itself doesnt work? im sure you know this but if you have a save already for a game, back it up, delete it then put your converted save.
