    I want to take this .duc Pokemon Save[2nd American save] and convert it to use on M3 Sakura.

    I went to http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php. Selected pokemon_diamond.duc

    Selected Input as: Action Replay Max DS (.duc / .dss)

    Selected Output as: G6 DS Real | M3 DS REAL (.0)

    Then renamed pokemon_diamond.0 TO Pokémon Diamond.sav to work with Pokémon Diamond.nds

    Put it on the card, game loads then the Professor asks me for my information as though no save is present.

    M3 Sakura DOES NOT CREATE A SAVE FILE UPON LAUNCH, therefore I know it is loading my converted save.
    [​IMG] becomes [​IMG]
    [Hopefully]
    Help please.

    All i want to do is impress my friends with the save, not go online and ruin the game BTW.
    =D

    I think .0 format is not what you're looking for.. If I remember right, M3 Real one was a 512kb RAW .sav, or maybe it could be the Cyclo/R4/Acekart/M3 Simply save.

    Forcing 512 KB RAW: didn't work
    Cyclo/R4/Acekart/M3 Simply save: didn't work

    Could it be the original .duc is messed up?

    Could anyone provide a working conversion or similar file?

    If you want to download a save, remember one thing :

    Gamefaqs = Fail.

    As you can see, your save's size is 8.5Kb. A real save of Pokemon Diamond is 512kb ... See the problem ?

    Let's check your save with an hexadecimal editor :

    Pokemon diamond (...) elite four , 3 shinys (...) elite 4 finished, 3 pokemon shiny in box 2 (...) castlevania (...) respaldo 1 (...) priemer respaldo

    Wait ... what ? Castlevania ?

    A Castlevania save is +- 8kb. So this is definitively a Castlevania save and AFAIK there's no converter that can convert a Castlevania save to a Pokemon one [​IMG]

    try this tiny exe I found its a .DUC to Sav Converter works great you can make 256k or 512k saves with it [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    cant even remember where I got i but do know its made by someone calling themselves EYE ?!

    link

    no install loads straight from the exe ..got this when my kids had supercard rumbles and used it ever since with action replay saves works great every time ... always found that shuney website always gave me headaches or gave rar files sometimes instead of saves ...or didnt work or was overloaded!

    edit just noticed the about button doh!!!

    As Shuny said earlier the save you downloaded is a Castlevania save, go download a Pokemon save

    I personally just convert my .duc files into .sav (Acekard 2 | CycloDS | EDGE | M3 Simply | NinjaDS | R4 | Supercard CF | Supercard One | Supercard SD | Top Toy DS kind) and it works perfectly

    [2] Demon Guest House
    lvl 24, 29.1%

    remember when converting saves the end result .SAV MUST BE THE EXACT SAME NAME as the GAME NAME!

    eg GAME1.NDS & GAME1.SAV or the game will NOT see it!
