    I wanted to know if there was anyway to convert a save from the exploader to a Visual Boy Advance save. I actually want to use the save with my Wii's VBAGX so I can do some megaman hacks with my own save not some elses like I usually do.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'm playing Final Fantasy V Advance, and I have a .sgn, .sv1, .sav files.
    I'm using ExpLoader .58b, and have VBA 1.80 beta3.

    NDSL with Acekard 2.1 running AKAIO fw + 3in1 EZFlash5

    .sv1 should be the same as a .sav, using the 3in1, myself, and I can get the sav file to work fine (I use BackupLoader to rip the save from the 3in1, just to keep things separate. Can't get savs to work again on the 3in1 after using vba, though. I've also seen people around here referencing a save game converter online, URL was here: http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php Seems to work okay.

    I think Shuny's converter is for DS not for GBA. =/

    I've been reading different things here about No$GBA and VBA, that their uncompressed savs work with GBALoader, tho it depends on the version of VBA... and others are
    like: http://gbatemp.net/lofiversion/index.php/t91047.html

    I'll keep searching and experiment. I have yet to learn how to use a hex editor to edit akaio's gba saves.

    edit: Perpetual, where would i find a BackupLoader? Would that be Rudolph's backup tool?

    I believe so, I've had it for ages, only started using it recently. Sorry, don't mean to be spreading title misinformation.

    Update:

    I also realized that No$GBA Raw savs work with VBA. Compressed and Uncompressed SAV/SNA File Format do not work with VBA.

    I apologize, I noticed that I posted the almost same question from the thread I quoted above. >.

    Any more info on this? I've been wondering about it as well. I recently purchased a 3in1, and would like to play Pokemon FireRed with it on my DS. Thing is I would like to use a speed boost to train faster and move through the game quicker, so I'd like to bring the gamesave over to my laptop VBA emulator from time to time, or maybe even to my Wii, then back to my DS when I'm out.
